I’m always kind of surprised at how fast the semester starts back up again. My best efforts to be “SUPER ORGANIZED” seem to fall by the wayside embarrassingly fast. With classes at 8:30am, labs at night and extra-curriculars on the side, there seems to be a lot of stuff to do before having fun in the kitchen. Bummer!
Despite my disorganization, I really don’t like to buy food when I’m at school. Most of it is overpriced and under-delicious. But there are exceptions to every rule! Stone Soup Foodworks is AWESOME. They do “Slow Food. Fast.” and operate from a bright green truck (currently on campus at the University of Ottawa). Their food is affordable, but I love it because it is just plain good all around. They use ingredients from local and sustainable sources, the food is fresh and delicious, and they offer plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. Everything I’ve tried (vegan cookies, sweet potato coconut soup, borscht, chilli, beef tacos, sandwiches, the list goes on and on) has been fantastic.
If you work, live or hangout anywhere near the University of Ottawa campus you should definitely try your next lunch here. It’s the healthiest, yummiest and best priced food around! Stone Soup is supposed to be at Winterlude on weekends this February, too, so if you visit Ottawa during the festival make sure you’re on the lookout for a happy green truck!
