With Ottawa's proximity to Quebec, we are lucky be influenced by Quebec culture and tasty food.  Poutine is a good example.  You can get poutine across the country, but no one makes it as good as in Quebec (or Ottawa).  French fries, fresh cheese curds and gravy.  So yummy.  The only place to get the best poutine is from a chip wagon.    I think I need to get some more right now.
