Ramallah Cafe on Pembina Highway is one of those restaurants that fall into the category of: I’ve been meaning to get there, but somehow just never got around to it. Fortunately, last month was my birthday. I share the month with our theology student, Susan, and so I was asked to pick a restaurant for a joint birthday lunch. So, I said, let’s try Ramallah. This turned out to be a welcome suggestion, and so that’s where the birthday lunch…Continue readingRamallah Cafe Great Food at 325 Pembina Hwy
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.

Yafa Cafe, is a Middle Eastern Street Food restaurant, located in the Saint James neighbourhood of Winnipeg. As regular readers of the blog know, I don’t drive. As a result, much of my reviewing of restaurants takes place in the downtown, and neighbouring areas. I do try, when life as a priest takes me out to other areas of the city to use those occasions as opportunities to sample the restaurant offerings from those neighbourhoods, as well. Our Hours: Sunday…Continue readingYafa Cafe – Middle East Street Food
