Saint Ignatius Fall Fish Fry

Saint Ignatius Knights of Columbus place mats

Each year as I compile my Fall Suppers list, I’m always on the lookout for new suppers to add. Since the season runs until about the middle of November, I keep up the search well after I’ve originally posted. This year one of the new dinners that I came upon was the Fall Fish Fry …

Seine River Cafe – Provencher Avenue

Seine River Cafe Burger Platter

Every so often there’s a place that I’m very aware of, but never get around to visiting. Seine River Cafe is one such place. Located in a strip mall on Provencher Avenue, just past the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain. I’m generally at the CCFM several times in a year, but never seem to make it the …

White Star Diner – Kennedy Street

For many years the White Star Diner was a mainstay of Winnipeg’s Exchange District. The diner was a little hole in the wall on Albert Street. It was mainly a takeout joint, with a limited number of seats. I had only been on one occasion and that hadn’t been enough to convince me to go back. …

A & W – Pembina @ Plaza

A & W Root Beer

I didn’t get to much of the Fringe Festival this year, but I was there enough to look for new places to eat. One of the places I chose was Johnny Gs (apostrophe removed for SEO reasons). I had visited there many years ago. However it was so long ago, I don’t really remember anything …

Juniors – Saint Marys Road

Here’s another one of those apostrophied restaurants, this time on an an apostrophied street. Juniors has three locations in Winnipeg, serving a classic burger and fries type menu along with some Greek specialties. I visited the location at St. Mary’s and Fermor. I made my first stop at Juniors, because I had been down at …

Swiss Chalet Delivered

It’s a while since I’ve been to Swiss Chalet. I don’t go voluntarily, but find myself roped into going when family members want to go. Today, however, was a bit different. The main reason I don’t go to Swiss Chalet is that I always find their chicken to be overcooked and dry. This time I …

Goldie’s Fries For Lunch

One of the food trucks that I missed out on during the Fringe Festival was Goldie’s Fries.  Most of the summer the truck is situated just off the edge of the Cube.  Goldie’s has been around for a while, but was out of commission for almost two years after an accident that occurred while the …
