Eater Montreal: The 20 Essential Ottawa Restaurants published on Sep 4, 2019, 2:22pm EDT #13. Rangoon The only Burmese restaurant in town, Rangoon dishes up spicy, coconut-laden food at eminently reasonable prices from its Chinatown premises. The dishes here have some similar elements to Thai food more common in Ottawa. Expect lots of garlic and ginger, but wielded in fresh new ways, as well as a tea leaf salad, chickpea fritters, and a deeply flavorful fish noodle soup that set the restaurant apart. Rangoon is a unique experience for this town. [$$]
