On Friday night – we checked out Confederation Square to see the ice sculptures. It was so impressive and so so pretty.
Here’s a breakdown of our day on Saturday:
10:00 am. We went directly to Art Is In Bakery to eat a Cronut and their potato buttermilk donut with a maple glaze and maple bacon crumbs. There’s only one word to describe both of these items: WOW. I would not have discovered this treat had I not been following @AMWATERS on Twitter as I read a tweet that she had enjoyed a Cronut the other day. (well, her 25 gram portion of the cronut!!)
12:00 pm We went to Flapjack’s Pancake Shack which is located right behind Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s in the Glebe. We ordered the JimBerrr! Watson – Double Smoked Bacon, Gouda & Egg between two original buttermilk pancakes. There is clearly a reason why Ottawa has embraced this new food truck!!
5:30 pm. For dinner, we checked out Prime Burger Bar. We inhaled our deep fried calamari, steak poutine and the Chipolte Burger (double jack cheese, double smoked bacon, avocado and chipotle mayo). Not to mention we ended our meal with DEEP FRIED OREOS. This restaurant opened in October and as always I discovered them on twitter. The owner took the time to chat with us and in that short chat, we could tell how he really does care about every aspect of his restaurant. I later asked my cousins if they had been to this restaurant and they also had a a great story to share about the owners amazing customer service!
Our day on Sunday continued with more yumminess!!
10:00 am – Black Pepper Biscotti and a Nutella Cannoli from Simply Biscotti. Note: We were celebrating World Nutella Day early!! (it’s officially on Feb 5th)
11;00 am – Maple Syrup Taffy on a stick – which I enjoyed while skating on the Rideau Canal. Oh how I love this childhood treat and of course skating on the canal was a treat too!
12:00 pm – A veggie Zatar from Aladdin Bakery
1:00 pm – Eggrolls from Golden Palace.
