Sip n’ Slurp! Ottawa’s NoodleFest!


Last night, Privé Food Thought put on Ottawa’s Noodle Fest at the Convention Centre! Such a delicious evening! Event goers were able to cast 3 votes on their favorite dishes based (1) Originality; (2) Taste and (3) Presentation. There were 21 vendors offering up noodles and sweets competing to be number 1! Out of 21 vendors, we were able to fit 10 into our bellies! Here are a few that I remembered to take photos of!

**And if you attended and want to share your photos, especially for the ones I missed or wasn’t able to try, please send me a note and it will be my pleasure to share them with your name!**



Market Organics offered a vegan-gluten free ThaiRoccan (Thai-Moroccan Fusion) dish: Sweet Potato Noodle in a Creamy Cashew Sauce.

weiWei’s NoodleHouse had two offerings. 1 – a Satay Peanut Noodle Soup with Beef and 2 – Singapore style noodle stir fried with carrot, snowpeas, beansprouts and egg, topped with braised pork belly. My friends favorite of the night! I liked the texture of the Singapore noodle in the peanut soup.

grateChef Johnathan Korecki from SideDoor, also see on Top Chef Canada, was offering his own BBQ Duck Ramen with ginger and pickled mustard greens. We over heard people going back for seconds! Broth was like nothing else I’ve ever tasted. Pretty delicious!

New Mee Fung offered a Spicy Satay Noodle Soup.


This place filled up super fast and not only did they sell out their $10 tickets on line, they sold out on their $15 door tickets too!!!



5 Senses Catering offered a Pancit Bihon with a Shanghai Lumpiang (Filipino spring roll)



On the sweet side, Hot Cream Holes were offering 4 flavours of their awesome grilled donuts with ice cream. We ordered the Nutty Ella and the Sweet Salty Sue. Yeah, about that. We can’t wait for them to get their truck so we can eat them all the time! 🙂

Also in the sweets corner was the Mr. Churritos food truck. He was offering up his warm delicious churros plain, filled, topped and poutine style. We ordered the “sampler” and had one filled with dulce de leche sauce (highly recommended), one plain and one topped with dark chocolate and almonds.
