Most people think Canadian food would be beer, maple syrup and bacon...and it might be true, but because we are so multicultural, we also have fantastic spins on all the stuff that originated from other countries (butter chicken, ginger beef, perogies, nun's farts, gyros, etc.)
The following list are some of the most authentic in Canadian fair. Try them if you visit us!
When in Montreal, try some Poutine
(french fries, cheese curds and gravy) or a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich
A must is the Jiggs dinner
while in Newfoundland, or fiddleheads
with your Lobster.

Have a Beaver Tail
(pastry) before iceskating on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa
Maple beans on toast
in Winterpeg, oops...Winnipeg Manitoba
Drink a couple of Ceasars
in a pub in Calgary
In Northern Ontario, you will pass out from sugar overload trying the Butter Tarts
Have a LumberJack's Breakfast
