TBBs do Lunch – Carmen’s Veranda

Three of us had the occasion recently to meet up for lunch.  We love to do this!  It’s a quick face to face touch-base for us to share what’s been going on in our busy lives and gives us the opportunity to try out some of Ottawa’s great restaurants.

This time we chose a charming little spot on Bank Street called Carmen’s Veranda.  Located “between the bridges – Landsdowne and Billings”, the decor is a delightfully eclectic blend of your mom’s kitchen and a laid back art gallery.  Not so coincidentally, the walls were covered with the work of local artists which are available for sale.

With a small menu that changes monthly, Carmen’s Veranda offers a Latin based menu that includes soft shell tacos, enchiladas and tostadas. Very reasonably priced, the presentation of these dishes is truly a work of art.  Check out these delicious Chorizo Meatballs:

I am STILL talking about them!

Carmen’s Veranda is open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday and you can bring your own wine (for a $10 corkage fee) on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

I am definitely returning for a din-din soon!
