My wife and I always come here for lunch and have had the tortiere the last few times. We lobe it and we always buy the African soup to take home. Also a favorite of ours.
This was our first dinner at Prairie Ink in many years. We had a couple of bad experiences in the past but things have much improved since our last dinner visit. The menu has changed quite a bit. It used to be more burgers and sandwiches but now it's a full on dinner menu. We started with crab stuffed prawns. A winner for both of us who love seafood and we also had the ribs. Beef short ribs bathed in a tangy barbecue sauce with just a hint of grilled smokiness. Dare I say the best in the city? They were topped with mini onion rings that I would like to eat a plate full of. Our server suggested the sangria and we enjoyed it very much. Refreshing and fruity and ice cold. It was hot out so our drinks went down with ease. The hostess at the door informed us that there was some kind of musical event going on this night but we didn't really catch what it was. We were heading out to a move after so we didn't pay much attention. I had the steak and mushrooms for my main dish and my wife had one of their feature summer salads, the Thai Peanut. We shard our food and shared our sangria when the music began. This was a show made up of armature songwriters that were performing their music for the crowd. Despite the place being full we got excellent service and sat and enjoyed the show. Both of us were amazed at the talent that we saw and heard. We had no idea there were so many singers and songwriters undiscovered in Winnipeg! One after another they just kept coming. I'm not sure how many we saw but before we knew it we were too late to catch the movie but we didn't care. W stayed right until the end and closed the place out. It was a great evening of food and music. We also loved the art that was hanging on the walls. We are also art lovers and this has always been one of the things that we look forward to seeing when we come to this restaurant. The art changes from time to time so we are always interested to see what's new. If you're looking for a great place to dine inside or on the patio they have one of those too. Prairie Ink is an oasis in the city of fin food, wine and many other things. We will be back soon.
