A Saturday Night in O-town

Stop #1: Anna Fine Thai Cuisine
Where: 91 Holland Avenue (Parkdale market area of Ottawa)
What: Super-yummy Thai food with great service. My Mom had the seafood Pad Thai and I had the Dinner for One, which came with soup and a selection of tasters including ginger fried veggies and red chicken curry (see how cool the dishes are! and even better? it was a lazy-susan style platter. Life doesn’t get better than this!)
Cost: $6 for a white wine, $22 for the Dinner for One
Conclusion: Highly recommended!

Stop #2: GCTC (Great Canadian Theatre Company)
Where: 300-1227 Wellington St. W. (Parkdale market area of Ottawa)
What: A play called Airport Security, by Gruppo Rubato, which is a small theatre company that creates and presents work by Ottawa artists. We found ourselves in an intimate studio with a basic, but innovative set. And we had so many good laughs! (If I can find the time, I promise to do a whole post just on this.)
Cost: $25 / $20 student price. (Disclosure: I received 2 complimentary no-strings-attached tickets)
Conclusion: Highly recommended!

Stop #3:  Black Dog Cafe
Where: 5540 Main Street (Manotick suburb of Ottawa)
What: Appletini and Flirtini with a shared dessert of Triple Chocolate Fantasy
Cost: I have no idea (Disclosure: My Mom treated me to this!)
Conclusion: Highly recommended!


  1. That sounds absolutely heavenly, Julie! Anna Thai and the Black Dog are two of my favs as well, and I’m also a big GCTC fan too (and haven’t been in a while, so I must change that!). It really does sound like the perfect night out – so glad you had a good time.

  2. What a great night!! :)

  3. I love the supper special from Anna always amazing. (Did you have the mango ice cream?)

    That chocolate dessert looks awesome.

  4. that is a solid night, jealous i couldn’t be with you guys to share in the fun!

  5. Fun and delicious! My mouth watered when I read about the last stop.

  6. Sounds like a great night. Dinner looks delicious!

  7. Ooozing jealousy over such a wonderful night out!
