Winnipeg is a city where over 100 languages are spoken, so it should come as no surprise that a world of flavours are represented in our restaurants. Our dining scene has always had excellent ethnic hole in the walls, while new rooms have also opened in the last several years where immigrants have brought authentic dishes from their homelands. Here are some of our city’s can’t-miss worldly rooms – which, ironically, are literally easy to miss because some of them are pretty hidden, being either place at the bottom of buildings, in strip malls, or at the bottom of a parking garage.
