Exchange (36/365)

Each year Ciao Magazine hosts Dine About Winnipeg which makes it a great time to try out different restaurants for a fraction of a price! They have set menus at either $28 or $36, which includes a starter, an entree and a dessert. This past Sunday I met up with Bee, Rybread, Oat, Roger and another friend for dinner at Hermanos (please pronounce this “ER-manos”, not “HER-manos”, for my sanity’s sake. It means brothers in spanish). I had been there previous for my birthday once and was unimpressed with my order, but it wasn’t really the fault of the restaurant!

This time I had absolutely nothing to complain about! My meal was delicious! I chose the Brazilian steak that came with chimichurri (gotta love saying that word), and farofa. The waitress described farofa as a “shake and bake” and it provided texture as well as taste. Bee, Oat and I couldn’t stop raving about how great it was! If this is a regular dish here it’s definitely something I would keep coming back for! I started with the scallops (pictured below) and while they tasted good, they were definitely not up to Segovia standards. I really have to thank Bee for introducing me to their incredible scallops!
Before dinner I managed to get a walk around the exchange district – one of my favourite places to walk around in this city. The architecture is so obviously from a different era, where buildings were built be gorgeous and to be admired. I love the tiny little details and the careful thought in things as simple as the trim, or a flourish in the corner of a roof. Gorgeous.

  2. Love the third and second last photos! I completely agree about the details on the buildings, they certainly don’t make them like that anymore.

  3. I’m sad that I didn’t get to the exchange early enough to do a photo walk with you! You got some awesome shots!
