Profile pic was taken on our 2011 vacation down south in Tennessee. Scott Parker BBQ in Lexington.

I',m a big fan of Rick Bayless and Steven Raichlen and Daisy Martinez. Love to cook, my favorites being Mexican,Indian, Mid Eastern, Italian. Avid BBQer the big stuff Brisket, Pork shoulder. Pet peeve is bad pizza in Ottawa seems anyone with a pizza oven thinks they can make pizza with their brothers or cousins recipes which were bad to begin with tainting pizza. I love to travel and base travel pans on history and good restaurants in the area.

Re: Wondering where there is a good chip truck - if you're willing to head to Nepean, I LOVE the fries at TV's Fries in the parking lot of Canadian Tire off of Merivale. There are two chip trucks in that "plaza", but it's the one with the covered canopy structure thing. I haven't had them yet this year, but last year they were stellar and fresh cut/cooked (we watched it happen). You salt your own, and I had the poutine - absolutely delicious.

Good luck on your search :)

Just got a poblano pepper at the Blossom Park Farm Boy, just in case you're still looking, LOL.

Hey! Saw your comment on Back Lane Cafe...there are a few wood-fired pizza joints in town that you might like...have you tried La Favorita, and Tennesy Williams? Or I think there is one on Carling, Calabria maybe?

You said that M.I.C. Eatery and Whisky Bar already exists but I can't find a duplicate. Can you clarify? Thanks!

Pavones! My friend who used to live in that area said they have awesome pizza. I'll have to hit it up sometime. It looks like good NY style round.

Speaking of pizza, I was out in front of Gabriel's Pizza and saw them get a delivery of 'brick american' cheese. That's what they seem to use on their pizza.

I agree with you about WW. Awful shit.

Dude, if I ran into Rick Bayless on the street I would at least take my sunglasses off and smile at the camera.

That is pretty cool though!

The repeat customers at WW obviously don't know good wings from cramp.

Sent a complaint Friday morning to the Head Office of WW. They responded by saying the Operator at the Ottawa West location had been notified and he was going to contact me soonest......tick, tick, tick, I'm still waiting.........
