Sweet Aroma Chinese Rest. 570B Sargent Ave

A version of this Sweet Aroma Chinese Restaurant was first published in the January edition of West End Streets. I’m back to doing regular restaurant reviews after my 11 days of Fried Chicken Fest reviews. You can find them all here: one, two, three, four, five, and six. These days, there is so much turnover in the restaurant world, that I sometimes don’t notice when one closes and the next one opens. Such is the case for Sweet Aroma Chinese…Continue readingSweet Aroma Chinese Rest. 570B Sargent Ave

Pho Cuu Long Restaurant – 757 St. Mary’s Road

Pho Cuu Long is a Vietnamese restaurant that is located on St. Mary’s Road just north of Fermor Avenue. This is a restaurant that I end up at because nothing else was open, or, if open, was really full of people. I like to take my chances when I choose a restaurant. Often I will walk down a busy street such as St. Mary’s Road and see what new-to-me place I can find. Usually this works out really well. However,…Continue readingPho Cuu Long Restaurant – 757 St. Mary’s Road

Winter Garden Restaurant 2211 McPhillips St

Winter Garden Restaurant is a Chinese food restaurant on McPhillips Street, not far from Seven Oaks hospital. Last year, with everything in lockdown, there was no family Christmas dinner.

North Garden Restaurant

It’s been almost six years since I’ve reviewed North Garden. I decided to check it out again. This time I went for the lunch time Dim Sum. The original review is at the bottom of this one.  My trip up to North Garden turned out to take longer than I had hoped for since even though the snow had stopped and the streets were basically clean, Winnipeg transit was on Sunday schedule and running well behind on that. I had…Continue readingNorth Garden Restaurant

Singyun Chinese Restaurant – Provencher

I find myself going down Provencher Boulevard, both on foot and on bus, quite frequently. One restaurant that has often caught my eye is Singyun Chinese restaurant. Two things about it really catch the eye. The first is the exterior of the building which is a bright, lemon yellow, with signage that looks like it has seen much better days. The second is they advertise a lunch buffet, which for the longest time was $8.99 including a canned drink, but…Continue readingSingyun Chinese Restaurant – Provencher
