Openings in Ottawa (Part 2/2)



Concluding the article on Recent Closings in Ottawa, posted earlier this week, here are the most recent openings. It seems there has been a trend in the Nations Capital towards customizable food. From custom noodles, burritos and donuts here are the openings in the beginning of 2017.


Chipotle, the popular Mexican fast food chain has opened up at the Rideau Centre. There are two thousand locations throughout the world with stores already in Toronto and Vancouver.


La Noodle just opened its second location in Canada, in Kanata Centrum. The first location opened in mid-October, which also happens to be in Ottawa – at George and Cumberland. La Noodle serves lamanian noodles, the older cousin of ramen, which are all made by hand with a customizable thickness. This franchise originates from the far east, from the Chinese city of Lanzhou.
