My wife and I enjoy trying different cuisine while traveling. What a pleasant surprise to find this gem so near in Ottawa. We've been here twice and enjoyed their soup, papusas and main dishes. Great value too! We'll be back.

The papusa here is amazing! This is a very unique restaurant. Nothing too fancy but the food is authentic and the service is great. Make sure you try the horchata!
