Ok, I must admit that I love Confusion Corner it’s just a strange space in Winnipeg. Cars don’t know where to go bus lanes go here and there. It takes some time as a Winnipegger to know where you’re going in traffic.
And because I am a confused Winnipegger I love this spot to dine.
All except for tonight.
Dar and I walked in easily before the hard supper service and got a table right away. Ordered a beverage and a french onion soup each. The drinks and soup were served in normal short order, but the french onion that I had come to love here was way off.
Yes we got a nicely coated broth full of cheese, but also topped with a nasty cayenne pepper. The soup on it’s own was good but there was to little of it, the broth was packed with way to much bread.
On to the mains, both of ordered beef, and that came cooked to order, very well seasoned and tasty. Only the beets that came on our plates were an issue. Those were rock hard and not really fit for human consumption.
One other sticking point, where is the divider between the lounge and the dining room. If walk in diners wanted to sit in the lounge and with the loud music and background we would ask for that. Just to open it up seems awkward and counter productive.
All things considered though. it’s a good meal and I would go 3.5 out of 5 this week.
