Hi Winnipeg hounds,

I'll be attending training in Winnipeg and staying at the Fairmont w no car.

This is my first visit to the city (I'm from Toronto) and I'd like to take in us much of the city as time permits in my down time. I'm craving a true Winnipeg food experience and would also love to visit any unique or terrific food or kitchen stores you might suggest.

I've read through the treads here and have some questions:

- Would The Forks be a good destination to combine my desire to see the city w my quest to eat something uniquely Winnipeg?

- I've read about Winnipeg's Greek burgers. If you only had 2 meals, would this be one of them? I don't need fancy, I just want to have something I wouldn't get at home. I feel I definitely need to get to Gunns & Tall Grass Prairie....would they be on your list given how limited my time is?

- I saw a TV programme about Deluca's Specialty Foods and it looked like a terrific spot and wondered whether this would be worth a taxi ride to check it out?

- What's a "Goog Special" from The Bridge Drive In.

-Is there a great restaurant in walking distance of the Fairmont that would be suitable for a solo diner (on a weeknight)?

Thanks in advance for your help!!
