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

1928 Eatery Burger, Brazen Hall Wings

After yesterday’s first Fried Chicken Fest entry, I’m returning with a post on the1928 Eatery and Brazen Hall entries. These two fit with my intention of trying new places this year. I really like fried chicken. I grew up in the era when KFC only meant the U.S. version. Korean Fried Chicken hadn’t really made it over here(remember, I’m old). Now, thanks to events like Fried Chicken Fest, I get to try many different version of fried chicken. That’s one…Continue reading1928 Eatery Burger, Brazen Hall Wings

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

Phô No 1 Vietnamese – 81 Isabel Street

Phô No 1 is a Vietnamese restaurant on Isabel Street just off of McDermott Avenue. It’s one of those places that I have heard many good things about. I’ve also walked by it many times on my way to and from the Exchange District, Yet, for one reason or another, I’ve never stopped in. The other day I found myself wandering through the Exchange District. Then I headed westward, wondering where to stop for lunch. As I was going down…Continue readingPhô No 1 Vietnamese – 81 Isabel Street

Bangkok Thai Restaurant – Osborne Village

You may notice a similarity between today’s post and my previous one.  After writing the Sukkothai post, I thought to myself, now would be a good time to do a post on Bangkok Thai. After all, they are only about three blocks away from each other. Bangkok Thai restaurant  sits on the corner of River Avenue and Osborne street. It exists on the second floor of a mixed-use building. I went there many years ago. I think it is close…Continue readingBangkok Thai Restaurant – Osborne Village

Bahn Ngon Vietnamese Restaurant – Sargent Avenue

Bahn Ngon is a new Vietnamese restaurant on the corner of Sargent Avenue and Agnes Street. You may wonder why anyone would want to start a new restaurant during a pandemic. Just remember, this is Winnipeg. We open ice cream shops in the dead of winter. A little pandemic will not get us down. Stay tuned for my review of Habesha, another new restaurant. Habesha is Ethiopian, and just down the way from me on Ellice Avenue.  Bahn Ngonis the…Continue readingBahn Ngon Vietnamese Restaurant – Sargent Avenue
