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

Greenish Cafe – Downtown Skywalk System

The rainy weather over the last few weeks has forced me inside more on the occasions that I am out walking. When I’m downtown this means traveling through the Skywalk system. Roughly halfway between Cityplace and Portage Place, lies Greenish Cafe, a Sushi and Salad place. There has been a sushi restaurant there for quite a few years, but I’ve never really been tempted to go in. However, over the last few months there has been a renovating of the space,…Continue readingGreenish Cafe – Downtown Skywalk System

Fusian Experience – Forks Market

The transformation of the centre of The Forks Market continues to take shape. One of the biggest changes is that most of the new food vendors are more upscale. Fusian Experience falls into this category. Fusian Experience at The Forks Market has closed, but they have opened up a dessert place on Main St.  Fusian Experience brings the flavours and styles of their Academy Road location in a stripped down version to The Forks. The menu is roughly divided in…Continue readingFusian Experience – Forks Market

Japanese Pavilion Folklorama

Yesterday I visited the Japanese and South Sudan Pavilions for Foklorama. In preparing to write the up I looked for connections. In the end the only connection that really sprang to mind is that they are both on the Number 17 bus route. So, I’m writing separate posts for each pavilion.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQdb9KYxAtk]Located in St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, the Japanese Pavilion is divided into cultural space in the basement, with the food and the show in the main floor hall.I arrived…Continue readingJapanese Pavilion Folklorama

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

Seoul Nami – Downtown, Underground

The other day I was underground at Portage and Main and decided I would make a stop for lunch at Seoul Nami which sits in the rotunda between Winnipeg Square and the Richardson building. There has been a lot of talk recently about possibly re-opening Portage and Main to pedestrian traffic. Moving to Winnipeg in 1980, I’ve only known a closed corner. Meanwhile, the underground has been part of my life at various times. I worked at Henry Armstrong’s in…Continue readingSeoul Nami – Downtown, Underground
