I am a foodie from downtown and I love having so many nice restaurants and stores nearby.
Although I enjoy eating out I am having a lot of fun creating new dishes in the kitchen these days. The Lansdowne Farmers market is definitely a favourite and the Trillium Bakery and Art-is-in satisfy my frequent bread cravings. The organic farmers market in Ottawa South is a fun place to shop too. And there is also Chinatown, Parma Ravioli, Sasloves, La Bottega….
Some favourite restaurants include lunch at La Bottega and the Sausage Kitchen or dinner at Yang Sheng and East India Co.
