The train ride to Ottawa was long but comfy. I just get antsy easily. And he headed off to work as soon as we were settled, but I headed up to Parliament Hill to bum around the Parliament buildings.
Meeting up for dinner was the highlight of the day, let me tell you. Zen Kitchen in Ottawa is a gourmet vegan, locally frown gourmet restaurant. The price tag is a bit high for daily fare, but the food is delicious. The appetizer was so well presented and so delicious that I tore it apart before I remembered to take a picture! I was able to contain myself a tad more when dinner arrived. I had a delicious celery root filet with incredibly well seasoned veggies, and Andrew had falafel and Israeli coucous. All were incredible. I highly recommend the place if you're in Ottawa.
The night was capped by some laughs at Absolute comedy with some of the top comedians in Ottawa - and they were very funny. This is coming from a woman who is very critical of stand-up comedians. But on the walk there we came upon this very uniquely named restaurant....Seriously, just read it out loud to yourself.
