REVIEW | FEAST CAFE AND BISTRO

    Food with an indigenous twist           Winnipeg rightly boasts about its rich cultural diversity, a beautiful tapestry of ethnicities woven peacefully together in the heart of the Canadian prairies.  A place people from all over the planet have come to call home.  With them has come a wealth of diverse ideas, religions, cultures and – oh, my goodness – the food!   Excellent takes on regional cuisines and specialties from every corner of the globe are readily available in Winnipeg, and along with the…

REVIEW | SAPERAVI – GEORGIAN CUISINE ON THE PRAIRES

REVIEW | SAPERAVI – GEORGIAN CUISINE ON THE PRAIRES

      SAPERAVI     When you think of Georgia it might not be about the peaches! I recently had the opportunity to stop by a relatively new establishment in town that serves up what can only be described as authentic Georgian cuisine. I’m talking eastern European as opposed to southern United States just to be clear. Saperavi, is the first Georgian restaurant in the Canadian Prairies.     If you haven’t tried food from the region you will be pleasantly surprised. It has influences from the Middle East,…

It is simple food that should be easy to knock out of the park each and…

The only sport on when we were there was a counts-for-nothing baseball…

REVIEW | WINNIPEG’S BEST KEPT BURGER SECRET

REVIEW | WINNIPEG’S BEST KEPT BURGER SECRET

If you haven’t had the opportunity to try the Diner’s Grill, stop what you are doing and make plans to go.  This small diner located at 405 Turenne Street in Winnipeg is a gem that serves amazing burgers. When I say amazing I mean tasty, fresh, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. I had the Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburger which is a tad pricy at $16 but worth the price. It is a massive beast that I had to struggle to finish. This is how their menu describes it: Half pound fresh beef patty…
