Winnipeg Restaurants

Hey,
I am unaware of a thread to discuss the merits of Winnipeg Restaurants.
(If one already exists, please merge this thread into it).

I have a very specific question:

Where can one get Chicago Deep Dish Pizza in Winnipeg?
Who here has ordered the "Chicago Deep Dish" Pizza from Chicago Phils?
Was it good?

I had a pizza at Chicago Phil's around 7 years ago, and it was completely inedible. For fantastic, genuine, Chicago pizza, visit Chicago.

my faves in descending order of cost:

rae and jerry's
keg downtown
shanghai
palatal express

gondola is the only pizza for me...but it is far from deep dish.

I have to agree with picks #1 and #3..

The Princess Street Grill is always a good source of a cheap breakfast.

And I'll add Yuki's, the Confusion Grill and the old diner that Kraut King has setup into the mix.

As far as fine dining went, I miss the old Gilroy's on Bannatyne and the Mertens rooftop patio that offered perhaps the best skyline view in the whole city from atop of that apartment block on Oakland Ave.

Another cool place for me has always been eating at the Terrace Dining hall at Assiniboia Downs.

Said experience is made even better when your horse wins.

hmmmm... Gondala... I haven't had edible paper thin cardboard pizza in a long time. maybe this weekend! Thanks TV for reminding me.

1ajs...deep dish is exactly that, it's baked in a deep dish. Pizza Hut is borderline deep dish, but nothing like the real stuff. When in the states I go to Chicago Uno which is a chain but has a decent 'za.

Yep, I think you have a point. I'm planning to go there with my Wife, since its within a 2-day drive from Winnipeg. Never been. I'll get the real thing there.

As for what is deep dish pizza:

btw, thanks for the restaurant info.
How about good cheap (and maybe greasy) places to go for breakfast?

I'm aware of:
Stellas,
The Nook
The Falafel Place
Country Porch
Nick's (in Headingley)

the paddlewheel in the bay for sheer nostalgia and uniqueness.. where else can you get jell-o, noodle salad and a beer?

for a grease fix, i say vj's drive in wins.
casual/lounge - confusion corner is great!
pasquale's on marion for italian can be great as well.. best caesar salad in town!

Some pretty decent selections already up here, but just to add to the list.

For a nice dinner, although not necessarily cost prudent, my three favourites are:
Fude
Amici's
&
Gates on Roblin

For a nice, cost effective dinner:
Inferno's Bistro
Luxsole
Nicolino's
Paradise
&
Taste of Sri-Linka (in the East Exchange)

For evening eats:
Liquid Lounge (Amazing wings, and the cheapest frutti de mare going)
Jonesy's (3133 Birds Hill Rd. - best appetizer in the world - the onion blossom)
Miso ($17 all you can eat sushi. How do you go wrong?)

Yes, I've had perogies at Alicia's.
I really liked them, but I'm wondering what other restaurants also serve perogies in the North end? I am not familiar with the area.

(now I want to go back to Alicia's for the north end special).

I like Garwood Grill, both for pizza and greasy breakfasts.

Love Ray and Jerry's - was there for lunch in the bar the other day. I hate to admit it, but i look forward to funerals because they may serve those tasty roll up sandwiches.
