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

Pho Hoi An – Sargent Avenue

This is a new post on Pho Hoi An, a Vietnamese restaurant on Sargent Avenue. I originally wrote a review a couple of years ago. A couple of months ago I switched from WordPress hosted to self hosted. Unfortunately somewhere in that process I lost that original post. So, while this post will only deal with my most recent visit, it does reflect two or three other past visits. I might even be able to add a couple of old…Continue readingPho Hoi An – Sargent Avenue

Binh An – Mixed Bag

Binh An is the third North Main restaurant that I visited first early in January. The other two were Modern Coffee and Newcastle Restaurant. Bihn An is located in a little strip mall just south of Main and Redwood. One aspect of Binh An that I like is that there is good bus service up to it. The 15, 18, and 20 routes all stop across the street. When you walk in the register is straight ahead of you, and to…Continue readingBinh An – Mixed Bag

Pho Kim Tuong Vietnamese Restaurant

If there is one type of restaurant that my area of Winnipeg is blessed with an abundance of, it’s Vietnamese. Many of the boat people who came to Winnipeg at the end of the 1970s and into the 80s settled in the West End of the city. One of the results of this is that the neighbourhood contains around 20 Vietnamese places, any of which are no more than a 20 minute walk from my house. Pho KIm Tuong is…Continue readingPho Kim Tuong Vietnamese Restaurant

Viva Restaurant: Pho, Fried Rice, and Frog’s Legs

Every so often there’s a restaurant that I somehow managed to miss, despite it being in my neighbourhood, and even with people referring to it quite regularly. Viva Restaurant, which specializes in Vietnamese and Chinese food is one such place. I went once last year, and had intended to get back, but for some reason never managed to make it. So, in the last couple of weeks I decided to make visiting a priority. Viva is located on Sargent on…Continue readingViva Restaurant: Pho, Fried Rice, and Frog’s Legs

Pho Binh Minh – 819 Sargent Avenue

Having recently moved, I find myself going out and exploring the various restaurants close to my new location. It’s one of those interesting things. Even though I wasn’t many blocks farther away from these restaurants than I am now, those extra few blocks meant I didn’t get out and check out places like Pho Binh Minh. Pho Binh Minh is located on Sargent, just past Arlington in a little professional plaza. The restaurant takes up about half of the street…Continue readingPho Binh Minh – 819 Sargent Avenue
