Dwarf No Cachette
157 Provencher Blvd., Winnipeg, MB, R2H 0G2
Dwarf no Cachette takes kawaii (cute in a Japanese context) to a whole new level. As the name indicates there are dwarfs hidden all over the place; Tuesday is Maid Café day (where the servers dress as maids and do dance routines – not in a kinky way, so get your mind out of the gutter); they have a gift shop filled with cool Japanese stuff; all the menus are handmade like a scrapbook; and the food, well it’s just as you’d get in Tokyo (where owners Takekuni and Yasuko Akimoto are from). The ramen is rich and ideal on a winter’s day while their okonomiyaki and takoyaki pair perfectly with an ice-cold Kirin.
