You're Not A True Ottawan Unless You've Eaten At Least 16 Of These 24 Foods

Get to it!

In Ottawa, we love tradition. We know all of our favourite restaurants, and go there religiously. However, when a new restaurant opens up, we need to go ASAP. Whether you've lived here all your life or have only been here for a couple of years, you're still an Ottawan. 

The Instagram game is strong here in Ottawa, especially when it comes to food. You can consider yourself a foodie all you want, but how many of these hyped up foods have you tried? They're some of our favs here in Ottawa so put this on your bucket list and try as many as you can!
