Farm to Table – Murray Street Kitchen

I have a confession. I may have been holding out on you, Ottawa. I found another place that serves top notch food in your fair city over the summer that I haven’t told you about. Frankly, I am not sure why I haven’t raved about it here yet! I may have held on to this secret because … well , look at these pictures! Doesn’t it seem to good to be true?

Say hello to my little friend: The Potaco!

Say hello to my new friend: The Potaco – a potato taco shell (latke style) filled with generous amounts of BBQ pulled pork, in house baked beans, cheddar and sour cream.  A perfect marriage between taco and latke it was crispy, flavourful and filling.

The geniuses behind the beast above are from Murray Street. Right in Ottawa’s Byward Market, you’re only a hop, skip and a jump to great pedestrian shopping and even a farmer’s market.

We got to sit outside on their spacious back patio and a mechanical awning if it starts to rain.

Fully supporting the Ottawa locavore movement, they describe their philosophy as “a parade of muddy, plaid strewn, gumboot wearin’ farmers, whole pigs, lambs, rabbits and ducks in tow, trudging through a downtown Ottawa restaurant”.  This means you’re guaranteed to get something fresh and innovative every time you go. Like Chris’ pick the Hasherole:

Hasherole
Hasherole – peeking out into the sun!

Served in a hot skillet, a poached egg tops a cheesy “casserole” of braised corned beef and potatoes. Don’t forget the bone marrow hollandaise!

What I love about this place is the thought they put into each and every one of their dishes. Even their charcuterie and cheese selections were colourful and divine:

Charcuterie and Cheese Plate Delish

We loved everything single bite! especially the smoked duck breast and the Tome de haut Richelieu cheese!

Overall we had a fantastic time at Murray Street. The food is exceptional and while some meals are heavy you can still taste that freshness that can only come from true farm-to-table. I can not wait to be back in Ottawa to eat here again.

Potaco, I’ll be back for you!
