EdCamp Ottawa - Food Truck - Big D's

Big D's are masters at Gourmet Hot Dogs and Poutine…. I had the Scotty Dog (cheese, bacon, beans) and I also had the Junk Yard Poutine (Smoked meat, cheese, gravy, melted cheese, fries) - For a fridged day it hit the spot!

The Ranchero - Guacamole, melted cheese, cheese curds, hot sauce, gravy - Wow!

Find them and eat whatever the slam out that magic window!

Fox Bros. BBQ Atlanta

Awesome fried pickles, both hot and sour… so delicious! 

The BC plate… three kinds of smoked meats to perfection - hickory smoke.
I had chill corn bread and onion rings as sides. Good. But trips to BBQ joints isn't for the sides necessarily, the meat must take the cake; at Fox Bros' they get it right!

Pork butts cooked at 212 for 12 hours. 400 lbs a day!

Bistrot Chez Sirano

a Cuban pulled pork burger was simply amazing

Calamar were perfectly cooked, crispy and tasty

The quality of the food is outstanding, the best fish and chips I have ever had. The service is very good and the ambiance very relaxed. One of the best value for your money in regards to dinning in the Eastern Townships. Great job Bistro Chez Sirano.

Excellent bistro foods in an entertaining atmosphere in the Eastern Townships. Simply the best food I have had in the town of Magog ever! 

Redneck Pasta & Weeners

Nifty idea for a meal on a penny

Poutinville - Poutine Reinvented!

The pursuit continues... This rest has a great gimmick in that you can create your very own Poutine with exactly what you want. Pogos, bacon, chicken, hot peppers, mushrooms and on and on... They also have a 15pound poutine for the brave - a cost of 75$ you better eat it all.

I had a bacon, mushroom, pepper sauce masterpiece.

The Perfect Poutine - 2013

This poutine came from a brew pub in Dunham, QC... It had a pepper sauce and was a bit creamy in texture. The fries we ok, but needed a bit more crisp, the cheese was too cool, thus never married very well with everything else... Overall ok!

This was from the Pataterie in Bedford, QC which I think is one of the best! It could have been better, because it was rather early in the day and the sauce still needed to reduce. The fries are crazy good, the cheese succulent. Still one of my favourite.

P.F. Chang's Bistro Chinois

I have heard a lot of good and bad about P.F.s so I went to check it out myself to see what all the hoopla was about. It was a very beautiful large room with lots of nice vistas, so I was encouraged to begin. The waiter was great explained the menu and the mixing sauces as shown above, but then the wait began... 25 minutes to get a refreshment! But that seemed to unjam everything and the food came quickly... it was good, but lacked a lot of flavor... good thing for the sauces. 
Not authentic Chinese food, but not bad for what you get.
