41 Bucket List Restaurants Every True Winnipegger Needs To Try

I just don't want to look back and think, "I could've eaten that."

It feels like only a few years ago that we had a fairly stale (ha!) food scene in Winnipeg. It wasn't due to a lack of restaurants, but rather, we just didn't have a place to go when we were feeling that one, specific type of craving. You know, the "I think I'm hungry but I don't want pizza but I want something warm but not too big but big enough to share but not a salad and not sushi but relatively cheap and—"

Fast forward a few years, and Winnipeg's got some pretty exciting food options. At the very least, there's a dish out there for every kind appetite. I've rounded up a few of Winnipeg's best spots that are definitely worth checking out.
