Taco Place
“Fast, tasty tacos that are incredible, plus the best guacamole I’ve ever had. There are two locations - one on Elgin St and one in the Byward Market.”

Pub
“BEER BIBLE. Good food too.... lol. I spend several months travelling Europe and a huge portion of that time was spent in Belgium. The Kingdom of Beer. It has been impossible to find certain beers I had over there, that is until I went to Pub Italia. They have the Beer Bible which is a fairly exhaustive list of any kind of beer you could possible want. The best part is they are all imported and stored on site, so they get that extra aging time if no one is ordering them. The pizza here is also really quite good and I've hear good things about the pasta dishes too.”
