ISO harissa in Ottawa

Hi hounds,

I've had my eye on a few recipes using harissa, the North African spice paste.

Does anyone know where I might be able to locate it in Ottawa, Ontario?

Thanks in advance!
p.s. the recipe I'm intending to make with it:

        Thanks Sue!
        For anyone else looking, a friend mentioned La Bottega, too.

      2. Whalesbone Sustainable Oyster & Fish Supply on Kent Street
        Only open Thurs-Sat. I picked up a tube of harissa there a couple of weeks ago. Hands down best fish/seafood available in the city if you need some for a recipe, although you do pay for the quality. Also you can grab a "brown bag lunch" until 2 if you're looking for a bite on the go.
