The annual competition earlier this month has crowned its winners after a series of online voting.

WINNIPEG — If you enjoy variety and lots of food options, you will love the revamped food hall at The Forks. It features menu items from around the world, including the delicacies from KYU Grill.

The reputation of KYU Grill proceeded itself. I had seen their food truck at events like the Food Truck Wars at ManyFest in years’ past. In fact, they took home the People’s Choice Award last Sunday.

Across the Board Game Café at 211 Bannatyne Avenue is a unique style of restaurant in Winnipeg’s Exchange District. This is their second location and an absolutely beautiful room with soaring ceilings, chandeliers and two walls of windows. Cheerfully adorning a number of walls are bookshelves full of games, old and new from all over the world.

On the evening we visited, one of the concept’s owners, Olaf Pytllik, was our Game Master. He spoke about how the café came to be and that the over 1,000 games on display were once housed in his basement. He also told us about the current board game business and how the game that we were playing was an award winner the previous year.

The Winnipeg dining scene has recently changed with government permission granted for “brew pubs” in the city. A brew pub can brew beer on site as well as offer up lunch and dinner for a full chef-directed kitchen. Winnipeg now boasts three such establishments and recently we visited One Great City at 1596 Ness Avenue.

We live just across the Assiniboine River from the Polo Park area and we decided to walk on a beautiful summer evening. Upon arrival, we were both hungry and thirsty and looking forward to the visit. The first order of business was our thirst and we chose a beer “flight” so we could taste four of the six beers which were premise-brewed.
