Anyone who’s been guarding a family bolognese recipe will tell you that a pinch of the right secret herb or spice takes a good dish to transcendent heights. These spots have some tricks up their sleeves when it comes to the perfect condiment.

Breakfast, brunch, and lunch at Clementine are divine, with inspired ingredients elevating morning fare. The fried beets, accompanied by jewel yellow, turmeric-heavy curry aioli are a must-have side dish. 123 Princess St, 204‑942‑9497, clementinewinnipeg.com

Beef may be 529 Wellington‘s bread and butter, but the pan seared black cod (pictured) is one of the best fish dishes in town thanks to chef Fraser McCleod’s sweet and briny mirin butter sauce. 529 Wellington Cres, 204‑487‑8325, 529wellington.ca

The silky, slowly simmered bolognese at Italian eatery Cibo gets its rich, savoury depth from veal stock. 339 Waterfront Dr, 204‑594‑0339, cibowaterfrontcafe.com

The butter chicken sauce at East India Company is good enough to eat by the cup—luckily, bottles of the rich, tomato-based curry are available for purchase for home cooks. 349 York Ave, 204‑947‑3097, eastindiaco.com

Golden, buttery hollandaise sauce is a brunch essential, and Stella’s version, packed with strands of dill and ladled over lox eggs bennie on rosemary scones, is the stuff of all-day love affairs. 166 Osborne St, 204-453‑8562; Plug In Gallery, 460 Portage Ave, 204‑772‑1556; Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain, 340 Provencher Blvd, 204‑477‑8393; Kenaston Village Mall, 1895 Grant Ave, 204-488‑7810; 116 Sherbrook St, 204-477‑5556; James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, 2nd floor, 204-779-1415; 1463 Pembina Hwy, 204‑275‑2001, stellas.ca
