Les Saj Restaurant – 1038 St. James St.

My Les Saj review has been over two years in the making. It wasn’t meant to be, but after my first visit in 2018 it took me over three years to make it back. Granted, Covid had something to do with that, but it was so long there is no way I can trust my memory of that first meal. Les Saj is a strip mall restaurant. However once inside, there is quite attractive seating. The kitchen is on the…Continue readingLes Saj Restaurant – 1038 St. James St.

Bella Vista Italian Restaurant Maryland

Bella Vista restaurant is an Italian restaurant located at the corner of Wolseley and Maryland. It’s been around for a long time, but recently has undergone an ownership change. The new owner is Ross Jeffers, formerly owner of 1958 Community Cafe. 1958 Community Cafe was a great little cafe on Westminster Avenue. I really liked the place, but it had limited hours and I didn’t get there as often as I would hope to. In the end, 1958 ended up…Continue readingBella Vista Italian Restaurant Maryland

Fionn MacCool’s Grant Park Shopping Centre

Every so often I like to visit McNally Robinson’s Booksellers at Grant Park Shopping Centre. They have a quite lovely restaurant called Prairie Ink. I’ve been a couple of times in the past, but generally the line ups and wait times are longer than I’m willing to wait through. So, then I go and look and see what is available in the general area. One restaurant that I’ve recently tried, is Fionn MacCool’s an Irish pub chain. The restaurant is…Continue readingFionn MacCool’s Grant Park Shopping Centre

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 first noticed Ivan’s Kitchen when they popped up in the Manitoba Food Bloggers group on Facebook. 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

Old Spaghetti Factory – The Forks

The Old Spaghetti Factory is one of those places that I associate with things like childhood family dinners, and church youth group outings. In my mind The Old Spaghetti Factory belongs with places like Bonanza and Ponderosa. They were a cut above the typical restaurant that we would visit. Although if we wanted to go real high-end it would be Sir John’s in our local Eaton’s. *Located in the Johnston Terminal, Old Spaghetti Factory is accessible. I don’t know if…Continue readingOld Spaghetti Factory – The Forks

Clergy Conference – Southport, Manitoba

The last few days I was out in Southport, Manitoba, attending our annual Anglican-Lutheran Clergy Conference. A little history. Almost 20 years ago, the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, signed the Waterloo Declaration. You can read about it by following the link, but over time one result of this agreement is that each year in my diocese and the local Lutheran Synod, both Anglican priests and Lutheran pastors gather together for a residential clergy…Continue readingClergy Conference – Southport, Manitoba
