Barley Mow in Orleans – much more than Pub Food

Barley Mow at Tenth Line in Orleans, Ottawa

The Diner’s Lament The Supper Seven have a weekly plight: Where do we eat of a Friday night? I know, said Debbie, just where to go: A place in Orleans called The Barley Mow And by gosh, do you know, she was right… Our choice of restaurant for the Supper Seven’s usual Friday night jaunt was …

There’s no recession in East Syracuse at Joey’s

Turning Stone Resort & Casino

This week, I took a brief business trip South of the Border. About once a month or so, I meet up with my business partner, Mike,  who lives in Vermont. Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Upper New York State, is approximately halfway between our locations, so it is the place that we most often …

Just down the road from the Pearl is a Ruby (King)

my plate of food

[ad#Google Adsense links 468×15] I have to start off this week by declaring my bias: I am not generally a fan of Chinese Buffets in general and especially not of RubyKing in particular. Every now and then, simply because it is a favourite of a majority of the Supper Seven, I have to allow my …

The Pearl of India is a jewel in Orleans

Ottawa's East End offers a taste of the Orient!

I am happy to report that the Supper Seven had little difficulty deciding where to eat this Friday. The vote was almost unanimous! Perhaps it was the miserable weather that gave us a hankering for some hearty Indian food. We have yet to find a better example in Ottawa’s east end than Pearl of India. …

Sing for your supper on Fridays at Broadway

Broadway Bar & Grill Innes/Cyrville

This Friday evening began like so many others with no clear idea of where the Supper Seven would go to eat. We actually ended up taking a vote. Two had voted for Wild Wing on Donald at St. Laurent in Ottawa’s East End. Two more decided to abstain, saying that they had no clear preference. …

Not Turkish, Nor a Village but worth a visit!

Little Turkish Village

[ad#Google Adsense links 468×15] This past Thursday evening was GNO (Girls Night Out). Ever since our Tupperware days, I have been considered one of the girls so I get to tag along;-) A group of us, anchored by Maureen, have been getting together about once a month for a few years now. We typically meet …

Spice it up a little at Chahaya Malaysia

Malaysian, Indonesian & Vegetarian Cuisine

[ad#Google Adsense links 468×15] Since this friday was Good Friday, Dorothy and I decided that rather than completely foregoing our weekly dining out treat, we would simply change the date to thursday. This meant that instead of our normal seven, it was just the two of us and our options were much broader than is …

You don’t need a tie to eat Thai at T’Basil

T'Basil Thai Restaurant Orleans

Another Friday night dining out and yet another decision to make about where to go in Ottawa for our weekly family supper on the town. This week, we are up one adult but missing one child, so our usual group of seven is once again six. Nobody had any strong feelings this week  and my stomach suddenly …

Here’s my beef: Where’s the pizza?

The main dish on Pizza Huts Buffet

  This week our usual Friday night jaunt took us to Pizza Hut at Industrial and St. Laurent in Ottawa. Our selection is usually made in a relatively democratic way. We take an impromptu vote and the majority normally prevails. This was our third trip within the last six months and it will be our …
