While I wait with bated breath for an answer to my coffee in Ottawa question, I thought I'd pose another. Where in Canada would you go for what you would consider a superb dish costing $10 or less, and what would it be? I mean a specific restaurant, not just a city. I've just moved to Ottawa and really been struck by the observation that few people can suggest to me a really great place for dinner where individual dishes don't cost upwards of $15, never mind $10. Maybe it's a hazard of being a town with too many public servants and techies on per diems or expense accounts? I tend to find so many of the restaurants here a letdown because the prices are so inflated compared to the quality...the exception being this one nice Persian place on Laurier West whose name I must make an effort to remember.
My choice would be the Beef with Noodle in Satay soup at Oriental Noodle House in Edmonton. It's maybe $8 now, possibly slightly less, can feed two or even three easily and is out of this world spicy and yummy.
