As this blog is self-sustained and self-supported, I’m always looking for deals that will help me out as I dine about town. So, a couple of months ago when Ian McCausland was selling Booster Juice coupons in support of the Scout Troop that he helps to lead, I thought it would opportunity to support a good person, a good cause and save myself a few dollars as I checked out Booster Juice. Booster Juice 503 Portage Avenue Hours Saturday 8a.m.–9p.m.…Continue readingBooster Juice – Downtown Locations.
Rodos Review I find my schedule takes me in and through downtown on a regular basis. This means I can often make short detours on my trips to visit various restaurants in the area. The last couple of weeks I took the time and paid a couple of visits to Rodo’s French and Greek Eatery In Winnipeg Square. Winnipeg Square is one of those places that is slightly off my track, but doesn’t add to much time to my trips.…Continue readingRodos Greek-French Eatery
A couple of weeks ago, after publishing posts on Nuburger, and Harvey’s, Cory Boehm, a friend and fellow food lover, asked if I had tried either of the new downtown pizza restaurants, Za Bistro, and Pizza Hotline. He said he had been having a conversation with a couple of his friends, and that since both offered similarly priced build you won pizzas, they might make for a good comparison.As it turned out I had just made my first trip to…Continue readingPizza Hotline Vs Za Bistro

Meanwhile, the underground has been part of my life at various times. I worked at Henry Armstrong’s in…Continue readingSeoul Nami – Downtown, Underground
A few months back I wrote about L & Y Tasty Soup at Portage Place. I was particularly happy to find a non-chain restaurant operating in a food court. Well, Winnipeg Square ups the ante in this regard as they have several such places. I’ll try and get around to checking out all of them in the next little while, but for now I want to highlight Vinh Long Vietnamese restaurant.One of the things I really like about the Winnipeg Square food…Continue readingVinh Long Vietnamese
As the weather in the city has been turning colder, I once again find myself using the downtown skywalk and underground walkway system more frequently. I was looking for a quick lunch the other day, and as I entered the underground mall complex by the RBC building on Portage Avenue, I spotted Gaberniks at the bottom of the escalators, and figured I’d give it a try. I had tried the above ground Gaberniks location a few years back, but didn’t…Continue readingGaberniks – Winnipeg Square
