I want options!!!

19 Apr


So I have been trying to become a better Tweeter, I’ve been trying to keep up to date on what people are saying, what’s trending and tweeting myself. I have seen some cool things on Twitter in the last couple of weeks. One of the Tweets that piqued my attention was from @BlackCatOttawa (Black Cat Bistro) it was to sign a petition to bring some flavour to the streets of Ottawa.

With shows like Eat St. and The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network Canada, we are getting a chance to see all of the possibilities street food could bring to Ottawa’s food scene. We would no longer have to decide between the poutine and sausage. Instead we would have the difficult but envious task of deciding between French Food, Korean BBQ, Lebanese, Jamaican, Chinese, South American, etc. If you look at a city like New York City there is a thriving and competitive street food industry.

At the moment the City of Ottawa makes it very difficult for you to obtain a permit to sell street food. You need a permit of some sort to be allowed to operate your business on city streets. I think it would be a great opportunity for the City of Ottawa, the Ottawa food scene and all food lovers to open up the regulations to allow for more street food. If you want to read more about street food in OttStone Soupawa check out this awesome blog the WIG, (click here for the post about the food petition.) If you want to sign the WIG’s petition for more street food in Ottawa check it out HERE. And if you’re out and about eating street food tweet about it using the hash tag #613streetfood and follow Adventure of an Ottawa Foodie @AOttawaFoodie
