Local Ottawa stuff

“Ees new concept. Ees European.”


Okay, ask so it’s not exactly street food – or even tasty coffee for that matter. But this guy was selling $1.50 Styrofoam cups of coffee  and hot chocolate off his back this morning outside the Tunney’s Pasture OC Transpo bus station.

I shelled out $2.00 – including a tip – and talked to the guy. And in a thick Russian accent, he told me this was a new concept in coffee vending. I never finished mine, since I was heading downtown and near some decent coffeeshops. But has anyone else seen this out on the mean streets of Ottawa?

One reply on ““Ees new concept. Ees European.””

When I hitch-hiked through the Middle East back in 1966, I first saw tea sold this way in Istanbul.
