The Winnipeg food scene is pretty amazing right now. On a recent tour of the Exchange District’s new Little South America food tasting tour, I found out that Winnipeg has more restaurants and cafes per capita than major Canadian cities.
Just last week, Huffington Post published the best 23 Restaurants in Winnipeg and included one of my favourites – Stella’s, Kum Koon and East India Company. Roddy Seradilla’s Pimp My Rice Filipino food truck also received an honourable mention by Huffington Post.
There are even more places in Winnipeg to fill your belly this summer! The Exchange District Biz and Tourism Winnipeg unveiled several food tours that highlight a smorgasbord of Winnipeg eateries.
One of three tours by the Exchange District Biz is the Little South American Tour. The tour takes you to Carnaval Brazilian BBQ and Hermano’s for appetizers and main douse menu samples. I was basically full after Carnevale. The final stop was Corriente’s Argentine Pizzeria for dessert and coffee. All this for $70/pp and tours happen every Monday.
The two other tours offered by the Exchange District Biz including the Little South American Tour run through until the end of August. Visit the Exchange District Biz website to book a tour.
Tourism Winnipeg’s first “Home Grown Trail” focuses on the best of local Manitoba ingredients such as pickerel, smoked Goldeye, bison and wild berries. The “Home Grown Trail” is the first Culinary Tour unveiled by Tourism Winnipeg. The eight restaurants featured on the Home Grown Trail include Fusion Grill, Mise, Market Burger, Fude, Prairie 360, Tall Grass Prairie, Peasant Cookery and Sonya’s.
Be prepared to say “Bon Apetite” often if you hit up the food tours and trails of Winnipeg’s amazing culinary scene!
