so a 75 year old wiener place that's been at the forks for as long as I can remember is being replaced by a different wiener place

Skinners is garbage anyway.

this is kind of a bummer, there are so many pizza places on my end of town......I guess this place was doomed as soon as 'Za, Panizza and Little Pizza Heaven came here, and Pizza hut made it's grand return to Transcona

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Papa Murphy's STORE PERMANENTLY CLOSED We regret inform you that the Papa Murphy's Regent location (1530 Regent Ave West) has closed its doors. We are thankful for the opportunity to know and serve so many fantastic customers. hope that you'll visit at one of our other locations such as Kenaston (1857 Grant Avenue) St. Vital (835 Dakota Street). From our Papa Murphy's family to yours, thank you. papamurphys.ca f'

oh yeah apparently Cathay House is going to become a club or something

How does any Papa Murphy's stay in business when you can get a stuffed crust Delissio that tastes just as good for less than half the price?

How does Pizza Hut stay in business when anywhere else offers better pizza at half the price....

Because your info is the not accurate.  They have one of the few buffets that are still under $10

Also, there's the 5 5 5 deal when you buy one large pizza at full price

I don't have a problem with their pizza.  It is what it is; once in a while it's okay, but I wouldn't want to eat it every week

I'm guessing that people didn't find the take home and bake thing appealing

The last time I went a few years back it was obscenely expensive ordering off the menu.   Like Boston Pizza insane expensive......

The deals at Dominos absolutely blew it away...

Especially when the u-bake is resting in the freezer already cause you bought it at Wally.

Ok, I can see how that could happen.  You have to go with the lunch buffet or one of their specials. A & W is like that too, if you don’t use their coupons.

Went to Carne steakhouse restaurant on Saturday.  Wow...that steak was damn good.  Mushrooms, good.  Potatoes, good.  Brussel sprouts, good.  The only thing that lacked was the Tiramisu.  It was a little dry and didn't have enough coffee flavor in it.  Until my wife poured some of her cappuccino into the dessert and we mixed it up.  Then it tasted really good.  Not cheap, but man was it amazing steak.

What I didn't like...the beef was corn or grain fed to get a certain marbling.  I'd rather support businesses that have grass fed beef as it's healthier for you.

well I just came back from PF Chang's. The food was good, good enough for me to want to come back. They have metal utensils on request, yep they actually do chopsticks there (plastic reusable chopsticks that is) so of course I gave them a try, I decided to practice with them by trying to pick up my napkin with them

 

 

oh and I learned that the fortune cookies are actually made by PF Chang's and so are the fortunes

Pony Corral on St. Marys Ave to be closed due to rent increase.

 

Mostly focused on Pier 7 I guess. But the owner has a lot of business holdings and a ton of money.   Wouldn’t be surprised to see pier 7 re-developed one day (luxury condos/apartments)
