Helios – Saint Mary’s Road

December 26, 2019 Update Christmas Day this year was one where there were no family events going on(we are dinner, etc., today). By the time I finish the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services, I’m not really up for preparing any food. I looked and noticed that Helios, a family Greek diner, not far from St. Philip’s is open on Christmas Day. So, after the building emptied out, I wandered down there for lunch. It was around quarter to two…Continue readingHelios – Saint Mary’s Road

Johnny’s, 382 Marion Street

When I started working at St. Philip’s I also started to explore the neighbourhood restaurants. One of the first was the Marion Street Eatery. At the time I noticed there were a couple of other restaurants. Dairy Wip and Johnny’s, close by.

Then, a couple of months go, the owners of Johnny’s happened to show up at St. Philip’s one…Continue readingJohnny’s, 382 Marion Street

So, I was glad when Greektown…Continue readingGreektown Food Truck

This one is one Portage Avenue, across the street from the University of Winnipeg. It’s in one of the old U of W buildings. I can’t remember what department it housed most recently, but if you go back far enough in it’s history it was a one-time Royal Bank branch.The opening of the…Continue readingOpa Souvlaki – Kenaston Common

Taste of (Meh)diterranean

Taste of Mediterranean I was wandering westward down Graham Avenue a couple of weeks ago and noticed that there was a new restaurant located at the back of the same building that contains Starbucks.  The signs stated that the new place was called Taste of Mediterranean. Perhaps the sign should have tipped me off to what the restaurant would be like.  The generic photograph of the chicken dinner reflects quite accurately the generic nature of the food served at the…Continue readingTaste of (Meh)diterranean
