2022 Fried Chicken Fest is Here

Once again it’s time for Fried Chicken Fest. Like last year, the 2022 version will be affected by Covid lockdowns.

You can read my posts from last year, here, here, and here.  For 2022, I hope to be able to increase the number of fried chicken dishes…Continue reading2022 Fried Chicken Fest is Here

Ghost Pepper McChicken Spiceless Face

I recently stopped for a Ghost Pepper McChicken from McDonalds. After seeing their most recent Spice Face commercials, I thought I would give one a try. The last time I tried a new McDonalds product was when they introduced their poutine. It was a disappointment. I paid a visit to the McDonalds on the corner of Portage Avenue and Sherbrook Street. Walking in, I am pleasantly surprised at the good job they are doing promoting physical distancing. The closed tables…Continue readingGhost Pepper McChicken Spiceless Face

Ivan’s Kitchen – Logan Avenue

Ivan’s Kitchen is a combination Filipino restaurant and burger joint. It’s located on Logan Avenue, just west of Sherbrook street.

I’ve enjoyed Filipino first since I first discovered Jeepney, and am always on the lookout for new Filipino restaurants. Where Ivan’s Kitchen is located on Logan, the neighbourhood is an interesting mix. There are quite a few houses tucked away here and there,…Continue readingIvan’s Kitchen – Logan Avenue

Mary Browns, Popeyes Chicken

Last year Winnipeg saw the arrival of two new chicken chains. Mary Browns Chicken’s & Taters, out of Virginia, via Newfoundland*, and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, out of Arabi, Louisiana. Being in the fast casual chicken business I figured that it might be interesting to review them in a compare and contrast style review.*I’ve since been informed that there has been a Mary Browns in the Transcona area of Winnipeg for a few years. I must admit that Popeyes had stayed…Continue readingMary Browns, Popeyes Chicken
