I’m always in search of new sensory experiences to thrill my taste buds and enlighten my palate in the most delicious and exciting ways. After suggestions to try Navarra in downtown Ottawa rapidly accumulated, I had no choice but to try this Mexican-Spanish fusion gem of the capital city. Navarra is now at the top of my list in stellar dining experiences, and here is why.
If your taste buds are curious for a new type of delicacy in Ottawa, the art of charcuterie, as prepared by Murray Street restaurant, will grace your palate with new elegance. Although Murray Street has been around for over four years, it continues to make its mark on Ottawa’s culinary scene with this refined delicacy that requires a great deal of patience and hard work, ultimately resulting in the most divinely succulent prepared meats that you will have the pleasure of tasting.
I am not sure why, but I have never quite outgrown my fear of Dalhousie street. When I was fifteen, I used to walk down the street with a limp, cross my eyes and stick my tongue out to avoid confrontations or even eye contact with the charismatic crack vendors. (Two kinds of crack: the crack one buys to smoke and crack one can buy, wash and sell again…if you know what I mean).
Located in the Byward market, down Clarendon lane, roadtrip features a number of brands that are defining Ottawa’s prepster look. The laidback interior houses brands such as Penguin, Ames Brothers, Ben Sherman, Joe’s Jeans and Fred Perry for men. For women, Kensie, Alternative apparel, Lucy Love, Fidelity and Minnetonka just to name a few. Map
