I should be putting the finishing touches on my presentation for tomorrow, but I just had to write about my breakfast this morning. I went to a local Winnipeg institution: Sal's. It was so great. I was just walking along Portage Avenue when I saw a sign that advertised a $2.99 breakfast. It was too good to be true, so I went through the doors and I felt like I had entered a time warp. It was like a restaurant out of my childhood: vinyl booths, waitresses in uniforms and cheap prices! For $2.99 I could have two eggs any style, toast, hashbrowns, and sausages. I haven't had a breakfast that cheap since about 1999 at the Lido Cafe in Kensington, Calgary (another of my favourite greasy spoons). Anyway, the breakfast was great. I am a bit of a breakfast connoisseur, and it had the perfect proportion of grease and butter to complement the eggs and toast. Yum. Anyway, if you are in Winnipeg make sure you try out this restaurant. It's a classic!

As everyone know, food in China is one of the important things in one day, and the breakfast is the first meal in one day. I also can remember that when i was in China, we have hundreds of choices and they are so cheap!

It is interesting that the price of many cheap things in canada is *.99.

Have you been to the Belmont in Marda Loop? That's my favorite greasy spoon, no uniforms but the girls are cute. I don't no why but I also like Phil's on 14th and 17th. But if you want cheap there's this place up in the NE that has a 2.99 breakfast. Again, no uniforms but you get to eat with truck drivers.
