According to a friend of mine, Dal’s is a Transcona institution. With an endorsement like that, I knew I had to try it out.
When I entered the restaurant, I noticed the decor was kind of bland and I was a bit dismayed with the slowness of the service staff.
After looking over the menu, I decided to try Dal’s Signature Chicken ($10.95). I received two pieces that had a crunchy cornmeal exterior with a hot juicy interior — very good.
Along with the chicken came fries and coleslaw. The fries were not homemade but the coleslaw was fresh, crisp and not weighed down with dressing.
I also ordered a nine-inch pepperoni and mushroom pizza ($11.75). It came loaded with cheese and sauce (too much sauce for my taste). The mushrooms were from a can but I didn’t mind and the crust was super thin with an almost cracker like texture.
Overall, Dal’s is an OK restaurant. If you’re in Transcona, try it out.
