Views / Winnipeg / Lunch Rush Winnipeg

All good lunch columns go to foodie heaven, even this one

For the final Lunch Rush column, my editor asked me to write about my favourite place to eat in Winnipeg. It’s hard for me to choose but I will tell you that Dessert Sinsations is one.

This little restaurant has consistently provided great service, food and atmosphere. I frequently order the Bacon White Cheddar Burger ($13.75) with a side of Sweet Potato Fries ($5.50) but this time, the eatery was having a Mexican special so I decided to try it.

The Cheese Enchilada with Anjo Chicken ($17) was stuffed full of tender chicken, grilled corn, re-fried beans and had a kick in the face spice topped with a chunky mole. It came with a side of red rice and shredded lettuce.

I also tried the Margarita Cheesecake ($9.25), which was the closest representation of a cocktail in food form I’ve come across yet. It was citrusy, refreshing and light — just like the drink.

If you haven’t tried Dessert Sinsations I recommend that you do.
