Potahto Week

Celebrating Manitoba’s Favourite Earth-Crafted Vegetable

Each year, Winnipeg restaurants dish up unique and creative dishes all starring the potahto. Thanks for participating, and we’ll see you in 2021!

And the Potahto Week Champion is…

Congratulations to our 2020 winner, Fionn’s!! Your Rover Bites dish was absolute perfection, earning year-long bragging rights as the reigning Potahto Week Champ!

Though we could only crown one winner, every single restaurant and potahto-eater who participated deserves our endless thanks and recognition.
