So I recently posted re: other food-centric cities beyond Toronto that would also offer some fun activities for my tween... It looks like, at this point, that we will combine Ottawa with a couple days in Montreal. There seems to be a lot to do in Ottawa for my kid--so I am sucking it up... even though I am not really feeling their food scene...(My apologies if I am mistaken, but it *seems* like they may have a few gems here and there...but foodwise, it is a city that is very much a work-in-progress. At any rate, I was thinking we'd do most of our splurges re: food in Montreal (we have been there twice before) and seek out more casual spots in Ottawa.
I read thus far, that the city is renowned for its schawarma, Beaver Tail pastry and egg rolls? So I am open to recs for those and any other specialties / local cuisine. We're from Brooklyn and pretty much have it all here...so any unusual / unique to Ottawa/Canada eats are really what I am looking for.... I was also reading about Susi Q. Donuts.. Are they worth trying? Are there any outdoor food markets worth visiting? Fun supermarkets (where we often pick up local treats on our trips)?
Thanks in Advance!
