Im at the national cancer leadership forum and these people want to eat.
what? Have you eaten at any of the asian restaurants in Ottawa? I have not found a single one that I'm truly happy with.Lovely N Amazin said:mama teresa is awesome but pricey. and i don't get the ottawa-good vs toronto-good. i think for its size, ottawa has better restaurants than toronto. it's a national capital after all ... tons of excellent cuisine. people don't eat out as much but those govt and foreign diplomat expense accounts have to be spent somewhere.
I do order from Yang Shen quite often actually. But its the exception to the rule. I have been highly disappointed with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine since I've been here, and that's been almost two years. I know others who have lived here their whole life, and they agree that Ottawa restaurants suck generally, in comparison to Toronto. Of course, there are exceptions. But in general I find that with any type of asian food, you'll pay higher prices for a smaller amount of food in Ottawa, and the quality is either barely comparable or below that which I've experienced in Toronto.Lovely N Amazin said:and you've lived in ottawa for how many months? ottawa chinese's community has deep roots. ottawa was the city that received the most vietnamese "boat people" in the 1980s. if you're looking for the spring rolls/green mango/cheap sushi shops owned by cantonese people experience, no you will not find it. but great little restaurants that locals frequent, like yang shen on the corner of bronson and sommerset.
