Temptation Tea Shop

Located a stones throw from our hotel this was the first place we ate when we arrived in Ottawa. The outside dinning area was packed so we were hopeful this was a good place. The spring rolls confirmed our suspicions... but then the rest came.

Filled with fresh mint and huge in size (this is one roll cut in half below) our mouths were watering for the main course.


John had the chicken pad thai and was very excited when his plate arrived. The excitement slowly dwindled though as he ate more and more... the taste of ketchup seemed to intensify... really??? Totally a bummer, especially considering how amazing the spring rolls were.


I've been on a Pho kick so ordered a bowl with rare beef.. the beef was a bit on the scraggly side and not at all rare. (I'm a fan of the rare beef sliced super thin and placed on top... not scraggly chunks sinking to the bottom). The broth was nothing to write home about but with a little added condiments I was happy and full at the end. I mean who can say no to a huge bowl of pho??? not me that's for sure.


If you are in the Ottawa area hit up Temptation Tea Shop for spring rolls and bubble tea... leave the rest behind ;)
