I work nearby and visit frequently for a quick takeout lunch. I almost always get the salad. So fresh and flavourful- have not once found wilted brown lettuce in my salad. Super friendly. Authentic. Always a line-up.

Great location right in the by-ward market, and we were lucky enough to find seating at the picnic tables out behind. Long line up for food was worth it. Food was delicious. Loved all of the sauces available as well. Cost is about $13 for...More
