Ottawa - favourite cheap eats, good grocers and worthy splurges?

rafjel May 19, 2012 01:49 AM

I will be moving to Ottawa at some point in August. As I am traveling at the moment, I won't have as much time as I usually would to do research, so I thought I'd put the question out to you all.

I will, of course, be doing some digging of my own, but any favourite spots in Ottawa that are fairly affordable (or definitely worth the expense)? Also, favourite inexpensive (or again, worthy high-end) grocers? I don't know where I will be living yet, but I will be sure to patronize the farmer's market(s) as well - any recommendations there?

Essentially, I am looking for anything and everything you are willing to share! (And if anyone wants to know about tracking down good food in Edmonton, where I will be moving from, I have a wealth of knowledge in this area). Thanks in advance!

    Anytime I'm in Ottawa, I always make sure I hit up Shawrama Palace on Rideau St. Very good, and huge portions! Make sure you try the potatoes and the garlic sauce! :)
