Best spot for lunch in downtown Ottawa
Posted on 09 / 02 / 2012
This is still my favourite spot for lunch in downtown Ottawa. There is a huge line up every lunch hour- but the line moves quickly. You are given a sheet to fill out and pick either a wrap, brown rice, noodles, salad, soup or their new option of quinoa. You then check all the toppings you want- half are free, such as roasted beets, edamame, carrots, chickpeas, broccoli, corn, and some are premium and cost more, such as avocado, kale or grilled tofu.. The list of toppings is extensive. Then you pick your dressing. My favourite is the spicy peanut. They also have suggested combinations if you don't want to invent your own. The price is usually $7-9 depending on how many premium toppings you want. The place is bright, clean and also has outdoor seating. It is a chain and does have some meat options.
There are other downtown places with a similar concept such as the Green Rebel but this place is the most affordable, the fastest and has the most choices.
