Though I'm a citizen of the burgeoning empire of the Dubya, I live only about 20 minutes from the border with Canada and about 1.5 hours from Ottawa. I go to Ottawa pretty frequently, particularly when I need a dose of civilization (I live in whitebread rural america which has its charms, but sometimes they wear thin).
Does anyone have any good Ottawa vegan eating recommendations?
On a side note, how about good alternative bookstores? Good tattoo shops that do custom/artsy work? Good independent record stores?
