When you think about Canadian food, the first thing that comes to mind is poutine. This glorious Canadian cuisine includes crispy fries, rich gravy and squeaky cheese curds. It is so popular you will get it anywhere in the world. The classic version you get here is by far the best. With a little topping with pork, bacon or smoked meat, it will knock your shoes off!
The key cuisine to a Canadian’s culture is the delicious and versatile Bannock. It is a simple bread that was once a staple diet of Canada’s Aboriginal people. Today you get modern versions of it which includes baked (which makes it heavy and dense) and fried versions (which are mostly crispy and fluffy on the inside). Don’t forget to try it!
Montreal Style Bagels
Ask any Canadian about these sweet and dense items and they will tell you what ayou are missing. They are baked in wood fire ovens and are topped with poppy or sesame seeds. Go for the amazing St. Viateur or the Fairmount Bagel or both!
Saskatoon berry pie
This amazing dessert is a legend in Canada. In fact, the city of Saskatoon was actually named after this wonderful cuisine. It has a sheer sweetness and an almond flavour which makes it so much better in the world of pies. Truly, it will change your life.
Last but not least is Canada’s national cocktail. It’s made of vodka, clamato juice, tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Its traditional celery salt rim and celery stalk is a true companion to this amazing drink. This is definitely your best brunch companion.
