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, …

Peasant Cookery

Despite my many times through the Exchange, I’ve never paid a visit to Peasant Cookery. Not only that, but when they participated in Taste of the Nation I somehow managed to overlook their booth as I made my way around the floor. Well, this week I finally corrected that. Last Friday I was down in the …

Pony Corral – Downtown

Prior to it’s being remodeled just after the Jets arrived back in town, the Pony Corral location on St. Mary Avenue was a place I visited with relative frequency. I’ve only been once in the time since, but decided recently that I would give it another try. One of the things that struck me a …

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 …

Vinh Long Vietnamese

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 …
