"Lesser Cuisine" (Ottawa)

James Moser | Nov 16, 2005 02:59 PM

There are so many recommendations for (in my opinion) absolutely FAB locations like Sweetgrass and Beckta in Ottawa. So many Market locations (like the Black Tomato) are also amazing and make for a delightful evening out. Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, and Middle eastern restaurants abound with plentiful portions, exotic specialties, and wonderful service.... But a true testament to the quality of the epicureal fabric of a city is it's "lesser cuisine". I love heading to large US cities, like NYC, and finding those hidden places, where a diner can stand against a well worn counter, in comfortable blue jeans and relish in the simple tastes of a homemade slice of pizza. I find this type of experience hard to come by in Ottawa (or surrounding area), so I throw down the gauntlet, where can you find the best of the following (under $10pp):

Pizza (by the slice!!)
Chili Dog (bonus points for Coney Island Style)
Burrito (in the wrapper?!?)
Slider (greasy burger... maybe fried)
Pickle (yes, pickle, dill pickle, ... tough one)
