Coconut Island Thai Restaurant

Coconut Island Thai Restaurant is a little strip mall place, located on Pembina Highway. I first visited when I was heading up to Faith Horizons, a semi annual diocesan conference. This year the conference was held at St. John’s College at the University of Manitoba. The event started on a Friday, which is my usual day off.

Cottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway

Every so often I run across a place, and wonder to myself, how did I miss this place for so long. Cottage Bakery on Pembina Highway is one such place. I lived just off Pembina and McGillivray for the best part of nine years. I was about four blocks from Cottage Bakery and yet somehow never managed to visit. In the end, my first visit came about 15 years after I left the area, because I needed change for the…Continue readingCottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway

Golden Loong – Pembina Highway

Golden Loong Review One of the things about being a priest is that you find yourself visiting hospitals on a semi-regular basis. Recently I found myself up at Victoria Hospital on Pembina Highway. The visits were mid afternoon, and they had me finishing just before suppertime. Fortunately, just down Pembina at Markham there is a place called Golden Loong. They feature cuisine from Xi’an a city in Northwest China. Golden Loong: Spicy as Advertised Situated in a strip mall, Golden Loong…Continue readingGolden Loong – Pembina Highway

Royal Punjab Sweet House

Royal Punjab is now closed. Royal Punjab Sweet House & Restaurant was the most recent destination for the Why Cook Wednesday Supper Club. Royal Punjab is located out in Fort Richmond, and on an evening like this I’m quite happy with the BRT. It’s just a short jaunt from St. Philip’s to the entrance to the transitway, and I’m able to get down to the south end of Pembina in quite good time. The Royal Punjab has gone through several…Continue readingRoyal Punjab Sweet House
