Food can be a central part of a holiday, as travellers may wish to try out some new culinary offerings in their new locale. Those who will be taking tours of Ottawa at the end of April can indulge in this activity and donate to a local cause during A Taste for Life event.
On April 25th, any diner who makes reservations at one of the restaurants on a special list will have 25 percent of their bill donated to The Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation and Bruce House in the city. Each participant will also be entered in a special giveaway that will randomly select individuals to take home prizes for their support.
Dozens of restaurants in the Ottawa region have signed up to be a part of the charitable cause. One of the places that welcomes patrons for A Taste for Life is The Buzz Restaurant. This establishment specialises in offering guests a great atmosphere and delicious cuisine, with favourites on the menu such as braised New Zealand lamb shank and lobster ravioli.
The Foolish Chicken is another fun and fresh restaurant that travellers can dine at for perfectly cooked barbecue and other hearty main courses. They really shine with the desserts though, presenting items like a homemade chocolate brownie sundae and gingerbread cake. Other establishments visitors to Ottawa may reserve tables at include Zen Kitchen in Chinatown, Black Thorn Cafe in Byward Market and Absinthe in Westboro.
Those interested in learning a little about all the different restaurants that will be a part of A Taste for Life can visit the official website for additional information. From there, travellers can send messages to their holiday companions about the idea and even sign up for several volunteer opportunities surrounding the event.
The Taste for Life is not only occurring in Canada's capital city, but at dozens of locales throughout the country, including Toronto, Calgary and Kingston. If travellers have some other cities on their list for holiday travel, they may want to see if this foodie event will be happening elsewhere during their vacation.
Travellers are bound to spend a few evenings on their holiday eating out, so checking out the establishments that will be participating in this event can be a simple way to give back to the community while also sampling some tasty, local cuisine.
