Less Famous Eateries In Canada That Offered Me An Amazing Dining Experience
Much of the picking of the places we go to have to do with the information we read. Advertising is one of the pillars of consuming and, most of the consumers of gastronomy have our favorite pages to check out which is the hottest new place in town.
That being said, the good and old mouth to mouth is still alive and kicking.You can really find new spots if you start hanging out with new friends, food junkies or not.
This is my list of the lesser known places in Canada that you should really go to and have an excellent meal.
So Good Restaurant
For example, the chicken breast with the peanut sauce with roasted veggies is just as amazing as the Indonesian shrimp.
I heard about it because a friend of mine lives nearby, over Somerset Street went with his girlfriend and had a blast.
The price range is way more than adequate for the type of food they sell and the best of it all is the vibe you get once you are inside.
A must if you live in the neighborhood and a great option for passers-by.
Prohibition Public House
Another recommendation from the same friend and also on Somerset Street, just four blocks away from So Good Restaurant, this place is a great discovery.
The first thing that hit me right from the start was how cozy the environment is. It is a little more expensive than the previous one, but the preparation of the meals is something else.
You can have a great serve of buffalo crab dip, pulled pork sliders, charcuterie or poutine tacos to share and it won´t break your bank.
They also offer a wide variety of craft beer, which is always a plus and the staff is as kind and helpful as they can be.
We spend a little more when we were there, but the food was delicious, so it was well worth it. I recommend it to have a nice night out with friends.
North And Navy
This is my favorite dating spot. Yes, it is the 21st century and girls like me ask men out very often.
I don´t have to explain you about the new role of women in the world, it is a new millennium, a new era and we are not to sit down and wait for the phone to ring anymore. That being said, the dim light around the place and the candle on the table starts the night one step higher than usual. If there´s one thing I can recommend is to go for the home-made pasta with the amazing sauces.
You can´t make a mistake there, they always come out al dente and the flavors are deliciously complex. I´m a beer-girl but I do enjoy some red wine from time to time and this place has the best selection.
Just ask the staff, they will offer the perfect one for your meal. It is not so well-known, but a great discovery, especially to go with that special someone.
Bowman’s Bar & Grill
The location of this place might be its biggest challenge in terms of popularity. It is not that is so far away from downtown Ottawa, but it is very close to the highway
The good thing about this distance is that they managed to have their own parking lot.
The vegetarian options on the menu are awesome and I am a meat-eating person. There is a burger made of nuts that is absolutely magical.
Also, for dessert, there is no way on Earth to avoid the churro with Nutella that they make.
It is not oily and presentation is glorious, it´s almost like a choir of angels sang “ahhh” as it comes to the table.
