Umi Sushi Unit 30 Shops of Winnipeg Square

It’s been quite a while since I visited any of the restaurants in the Shops of Winnipeg Square. Umi Sushi is one that I’ve never ordered from. Located just north of the food court it’s never caught my eye. Recently, I thought I would drop in and see what is on offer. Umi Sushi is laid out in a long, and narrow fashion. With the kitchen behind a long counter on one side of the unit, and the seating normally…Continue readingUmi Sushi Unit 30 Shops of Winnipeg Square

St Norbert Farmer’s Market-Saturday Shopping

  Last Saturday, I found myself part way down Pembina Highway in the morning. After my breakfast I thought that it would be a good time to head out to the St Norbert Farmers Market. I try to get out there once or twice a year. Despite it being beyond Winnipeg’s Perimeter Highway, there is still transit service out there, and I was not far from one of the Bus Rapid Transit stations. The rapid transit system had just opened…Continue readingSt Norbert Farmer’s Market-Saturday Shopping

Nou Eul Tor – Korean Restaurant

Nou Eul Tor is now closed. In it’s place is Gladys Caribbean Kitchen. You can find my review of that restaurant here.  I’m not really a make a reservation type of person. I tend to show up and hope that I’ll find myself a seat. Sometimes this works out well, and sometimes it means I have to go visit a restaurant a few times before I complete two visits. Still other times, it leads me to trying places I wasn’t…Continue readingNou Eul Tor – Korean Restaurant

BIMI – Kenaston Village Mall

I’ve started trying to work my way through River Heights on my Zomato profile. My goal is one day to be an expert in every Winnipeg neighbourhood (vanity, I know). It’s a slower process then I hoped, but with visits to my mom and occasional stops at CMU, I’m getting there. I visited Freshii recently, and have also managed to make a couple of stops at BIMI Korean-Japanese restaurant in the same mall. All You Can Eat It’s not very…Continue readingBIMI – Kenaston Village Mall

Forth Coffee – Dogwood Roaster

There’s a lot of buzz around the coffee scene in Winnipeg, and it’s not all caused by excess caffeine. Thom Bargen is soon to be part of a new space on Graham Avenue. Twist Cafe has new owners, and Nils Vik of Parlour and his partners are working with Dogwood Coffee to bring small batch roasting to the city. They are sharing space with Forth Coffee, a new coffee house/restaurant in the Exchange. The cafe at Forth is managed by Renee Girard,…Continue readingForth Coffee – Dogwood Roaster

Kiwa Restaurant Fort Richmond

This past weekend family Thanksgiving was on Sunday, so on the holiday itself I was pretty much left to my own devices. I wandered about during the day, and towards the end of the day found myself out in Fort Richmond. When suppertime arrived I decided to see what restaurants were open, and settled on Kiwa. Kiwa is a Korean restaurant and seemed to be a good fit after having just tried Little Korea.Despite being located in a strip mall,…Continue readingKiwa Restaurant Fort Richmond
