Checking things off my Ottawa Summer Bucket List: Eat lunch at Bite This

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Recipes and Food

I know, I know, I am diverging from what is typically expected from a bucket list* but if you don’t pick up lunch from Bite This in Westboro Village at some point this summer you will regret it:

Bite This (a good shack in Westboro Village)

  1. It’s delicious.
  2. It’s reasonably priced.
  3. The serving size makes it an extra good value.
  4. You sit outside in a pretty setting.
  5. Everything we’ve ever eaten there is delicious.

There’s the menu on their website but they seem to offer surprise switcheroos every once in a while. Yesterday, for example, Mark ordered two bao buns with Korean chicken and fries and it was absolutely, mouthwateringly, good.

I ordered a Korean breaded cauliflower wrap with spicy peanut sauce that I’ve had before and it was just as excellent as I remembered.

*I think the best bucket lists contain small things as well as big things. After all, we can’t travel or spend big bucks every day, right??

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
