Looking for whole Star Anise in Winnipeg.

Can anybody in Winnipeg, please tell me where I can find whole Star Anise in Winnipeg. I am making Vietnamese Pho, and it is one of the important ingredients that I need to make the broth.

Is Winnipeg really a Wasteland? (moved from Canada board)

This is Jalapeno from the Peg again, I thought of a couple more restaurants. Pho #1 on Isabel and McDermot, it got 4 out 5 star review from Marion Warhaft the restaurant critic for the Winnipeg Free Press, and also Edohei Japanese Restaurant on Ellice, who got a 5 out 5 star review from Marion, for some of the best Sushi, and Tempura, you can't get better than that. So to all your doubting Thomas's out there, you have plenty of places to go and dine, and besides it is cheaper to live and eat here, than other cities in Canada.

Is Winnipeg really a Wasteland? (moved from Canada board)

I am sick and tired of being BASHED by BCers, Winnipeg is a wonderful place to live and EAT...You want good Vietnamese go to Pho#1 on Isabel and McDermot, also Binh Ma on the corner of Main and Aberdeen, although our China town is quite small there are some great restaurants like Shanghi, Sum Hi's on Logan has great soups, why don't you open up the Yellow Pages there are tons of restaurants in Winnipeg, go down Sargent Ave, and you will encounter a whole swack of restaurants, there is Thai, Vietnamese, East Indian, Sri Lanka, Caribbean, etc. You want to find about the ethnic culture in Winnipeg go to the Folklarama Festival the first two weeks in August, the best ethnic event in North America. You just can't beat it. Get a Winnipegger to get to take you around the city, and maybe venture out of town, to some of our rural municipalities, you can't beat the hot dogs at Skinners and the Half Moon in Selkirk. Don't tell me about Winnipeg being a Wasteland. Best burgers Klekisis on Main St, their is also Juniors on Main St, they have great fries. There is no excuse why you can't find a good restaurant in Winnipeg.

Looking for a good butcher in Winnipeg

People seem to forget about another independent butcher in Winnipeg, it is Tenderloins on Main St across the street from the Winnipeg Transit Garage, I believe it is on the corner of Matheson, also there is Karputis on the corner of Bannerman and McGregor, they have their own smokehouse. Tenderloins has the best garlic sausage in Winnipeg. If I remember any other places I will let you know.

Vietnamese-Style Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce

I never had a problem rolling summer rolls, if you can roll a cabbage roll, you can roll these. Really simple.
