Ottawa dining and delivery choices - long

Well, I didn't end up going to Sweetgrass because I felt quite sick with the flu and was alone and didn't want to venture too far away from my hotel.

So, working from the Yellow Pages, I desperately looked up restaurants that would deliver to my hotel but that would not be pizza or greek food (just wasn't in the mood for that). Well... it was tough. I first tried a Persian restaurant (their menu is in the phone book and it looked quite yummy) but their delivery person was not there that night, which seemed odd, after all, it was Friday night). I finally opted for Chinese (canadian chinese), a restaurant located in the Vanier area that made, very nicely, an exception for me as I didn't quite order the minimum $15 of food required. I had chicken gai pan, spare ribs and chicken fried rice, with an egg roll and an almond cookie. The food was ok, not great, not bad, but was plentiful. Two could have dined happily. They charged me $1 for a tiny "cup" of hot sauce, which I found a bit harsh, but oh well...

So, now, a question, in prevision of my next trip: who delivers downtown Ottawa that is not greek food or pizza??? I'm trying to make a reference list for the future :-))

I was introduced to a local restaurant, the Place Next Door, or something like that. It is a Deli and they packed dinner for me for the train ride home. I asked for the Donny Osmond sandwich ($8,95) and felt like I was carrying a whole buffet! It was ham and turkey on a kaiser with, on the side, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, black olives, coleslaw and a pickle. It came with a side of fries, which the cook nicely substituted with potato salad when I asked for no fries. Everything was very fresh and, again, that would have been enough for two.
