You're Not A True Ottawan Unless You've Been To At Least 14 Of These 22 Restaurants

Eat your way through Ottawa!

A ton of people in Ottawa consider themselves Ottawans, solely because they were born and raised here. While that's totally true, if you haven't immersed yourself in the culture, the restaurants, the foods and the activities, then you're really not a true Ottawan. 

Restaurants really show what the city is all about. Toronto has a shit ton of restaurants, which shows how diverse and unlimited the city is. When it comes to Ottawa, we have the same old stuff but we're becoming more and more trendy. However, that same old stuff that we have are delicious, unique restaurants that will make you want to go back time and time again. 

If you've already conquered our true Ottawan cafes, foods, and activitiesthen it's time to move on to restaurants. And if you haven't, then get on it. It's the only way you'll know if you're a true Ottawan or not!
