Welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year’s from Local Tourist Ottawa! We hope your resolutions include getting out and exploring this wonderful city in 2011. We’re going to be making our local bucket list in the days to come!

For me, Jan. 1 always means one thing (besides sleeping off my late night out) — Chinese food!

This year, I opted for a Dim Sum brunch at Palais Imperial on Dalhousie Street. A lazy, two-hour lunch with friends and good food is a great way to start the year. And Dim Sum is always such great value! ($17.50, with taxes and tip for LOADS of food, tea and drinks!)

Other favourites of mine include the Peking Duck dinner at Yangtze (for 4 people) and the five-spiced prawns at Mekong!

Hope your 2011 is starting off right!
