Eating up the Hill: Buddha Satay Bowl at Freshii
Our office moved over to the newly renovated Wellington Building last week and, while the new cafeteria in this building looks pretty sweet, it won't be open for another week. As my offer to serve as a taste tester as they prep for opening hasn't been accep...

Eating up the Hill: French Dip Roast Beef Sandwich with Chips and Coleslaw
Yesterday's Roast Beef sandwich will be my last lunch in the Parliamentary precinct in 2016, although I do have several past lunches that I have yet to chronicle. It was a fittingly meaty ending to 2016, and likely my last lunch in Confederation before movi...

Eating up the Hill: Liberal caucus don't call it Christmas party
Last week was the annual office Christmas party. At my last job, each of the managers would bring in dishes they had prepared for an afternoon potluck. However, while I'm sure Marc Garneau's macaroni & cheese is amazing, the caucus leader's office opted to ...

Eating up the Hill: Lasagna and Cesar Salad
No one makes lasagna like Mom, but she's not here and I still need to eat lunch. So I headed up to the Confederation Building cafeteria on Thursday to try the special of the day: Lasagna and Cesar Salad. First, the lasagna. On the positive side, the portion...

Eating up the Hill: Mac My Cheese Fest a flop
Macaroni and cheese has had something of a renaissance in recent years, perhaps capitalizing on people looking to relive their youths with a nostalgia kick. Festivals have begun to pop up to capitalize and make bank, which is what brought the Mac My Cheese ...

Eating up the Hill: Friday is fish day
If it's Friday, it's fish day in Parliamentary cafeterias. Often that means fish and chips -- I usually sub out the fries for a salad -- but this Friday, it was a salmon fillet so I took the elevator up to the newly reopened Confederation Building cafeteria...

Eating up the Hill: Soup and a sandwich from The Soup Guy
I've been talking a lot about soup on this blog and so, at the urging of a regular reader, I ventured off campus to the food court at World Exchange Plaza to sample the wares of The Soup Guy . I don't venture too often over to the World Exchange Plaza about...

Eating up the Hill: Turkey lunch with the trimmings
I generally have turkey once a year: at Christmas. Which is just about the right amount for me, actually. Especially given that between different dinners and assorted leftovers, I usually have about a year's worth of turkey over the holiday period. My first...

Eating up the Hill: Wicked Thai Style Soup with Chicken
Generally, I'm not a big soup guy. Usually I will take the salad over the soup in an appetizer scenario, but there are certain soups I am adding and to my must have when they come up in the Parliamentary soup rotation list. And Friday, the list grew by one....

Eating up the Hill: A BCer and a Calgary Grit experience the Taste of Newfoundland
The people's business has been keeping me from my Parliamentary food blogging business, but people have been reminding me food business is the people's business, so I decided to come back from hiatus with another former political blogger in tow today -- the...

Eating up the Hill: The Cattleman bring beef for lunch
While all the evening receptions on the Hill sound fun and glamorous, I'm an old man who, more often than not, would rather just go home, sit on the couch, and catch up on NCIS New Orleans on my PVR. But a lunch reception? That I can definitely do. Having m...

Eating up the Hill: Tim Hortons and the saga of the devolving Apple Fritter
Like many Canadians, Tom Hortons is often a part of my morning routine. Not for coffee -- I'm not a coffee drinker -- but a few days a week I'll stop on my way to work for a bagel and/or a donut. Or, to be more specific, a fritter. For more than a decade, t...
