Was re-reading question about desert-island picks below (okay, so we got off-topic)and was wondering about other Ottawa hounds' hidden gems - the spots that you wouldn't find elsewhere. I'm thinking not just high-end, but lower end or street-food too. If you're not making it yourself, where do you find the best tabouleh, samosas, rice-paper rolls, etc?
A few of my examples:
-the special effort I make for rice-paper rolls at Cam Kong (with sautéed shallots and mushrooms) even though the rest of the menu is less exciting
-picking up fresh scones at the Sconewitch when I have houseguests
What are your unique hidden gems?
