Looking for places to eat. Love to Eat. Live to Eat. And as always, looking for value, traditional but creative venues, to eat and drink well in Ottawa; or for that matter anywhere else in the world.

I am not a chef by any means, but consider myself a gourmand... which has had a somewhat stained reputation attached to it in recent years. (Everyone wants to be a gourmet.) I use it in the traditional sense....I just love to eat and have the metabolic rate to remain slim. So while I still have it, I might as well use it...?

Value is also something that is somewhat subjective. As an example, there are literally no good valued chinese restaurants in Ottawa. Of course this is compared to the rest of the world or any large city. I can get the same thing in Toronto for 30% to 50% cheaper and with more variety, in terms of foods from different provinces of China.

So that's why I'm here. To find out and comment on where I can get a decent meal. And perhaps to have company eating out with. I would have found the Susur Lee at 18 experience an interesting one. I was actually going to go to Toronto to have a meal at a Kaisaki place... very popular in Tor these days. And it would have cost pretty much the same price, not including the trip down and stay!
