Foodie Friday: Terrific tacos at El Camino

Post by Adria May and Ryan Saxby Hill, Senior Taco Correspondents When we arrived at El Camino, Chef Carmichael’s new taco joint, the place was packed and there was a line up at the take-out window. We didn’t recall a place having such high energy on a Wednesday night on Elgin street in quite a […]

Foodie Friday: Beer Sampling at the Old Mill Pub in Ashton

If you drive West of Ottawa, and drive till there’s nothing, you could very well be in Ashton. With a scant population of 200, this idyllic village has a post office, two churches, an old convenience store, many a field, and the Old Mill Pub, featuring the Ashton Brewing Company – the very purpose of […]

Art Is In my mouth

by @iscoff Since I’m on Twitter almost all day, it’s not often I get the opportunity to talk about what I eat for breakfast, so you can imagine my delight when I was asked to write a few words about the breakfast offerings of Art Is In Bakery. “What if we sold people sandwiches in […]

Richard’s Hintonburg Kitchen: Yet another win for west-end foodies

Despite the lack of a sign over the door, the opening of Richard’s Hintonburg Kitchen over the weekend was one of the neighbourhood’s worst kept secrets. And while west-enders are rejoicing over yet another high calibre addition to a neighbourhood already packed with foodie destinations, it must be a weight off the back of founder and […]

Foodie Friday: Best Poutine in Ottawa

It is impossible to dislike poutine. Yes, I am calling out you liars: it is impossible. Whether it’s in a traditional styrofoam cup leaking gravy onto a picnic table or served with pulled pork, vegetarian gravy, homefries or other creative ingredients, it’s hard not to gravitate to the one menu item guaranteed not to let […]

Apres Snow: Vanier gets its 1960s groove back

This post originally appeared on Vanier Now.  The jukeboxes may have been removed from Fontenelle years ago, but this Saturday (February 16), 1960s French pop is back. From the well-known to the obscure, Vanier-born DJ Mimi la Twisteuse is bringing her vinyl collection of French yé yé to Après-Snow at Fontenelle, an evening component of Vanier’s Winter […]

Valentine’s Day Roundup

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching love is in the air (or yet again, it may just be your breath that you’re seeing with the ridiculous cold weather outside). Before we digress, however, let’s proudly proclaim that as hardy Canadians full of love we won’t let Mother Nature get in the way of romance. So if you still have […]

Foodie Friday: Dinner for TWO. Resos at SIX. Happy we {ATE}.

What springs to mind when someone mentions eating on Preston Street? Somerset most certainly equals pho, but Preston is a mélange of pricey Italian restaurants, beer-focused pubs and a few non-Italian ethnic eateries. One of the latter was the Lindenhof, an institution for those who love spatzle and meat, which closed its doors last summer to much sadness. […]

BREAKING NEWS: Imperial Food and Beverage is closed

Apartment613 has confirmed that the Imperial restaurant on Bank street is now closed. According to owner Chris Edwards “they were unable to reach an agreement” with their landlord, forcing him to close the business. Our understanding is that the building is owned by the same folks as Barrymore’s. We’ve contacted them for a comment and […]
