One of our city’s most affected sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic is dining and restaurants. Throughout 2021 restaurants suffered the most as restrictions changed, sometimes limiting their capacity, and sometimes shutting them down for dining in.
With current restrictions prohibiting sitting at a restaurant, and only allowing delivery and takeout, Winnipeg’s restaurants keep on suffering.
Winnipeg’s restaurant aren’t the only ones affected by the pandemic, and many of us Winnipeggers lost our jobs or had to reduce spending.
We all want to support our local businesses but many of us struggle as well during those unprecedented times.
For that reason, we have compiled a list of the best affordable restaurants in Winnipeg, still open for delivery or takeout, that give the best value for money for us Winnipeggers.
