Canada's delicious local flavours
North America in general is known for its supremely satisfying fast food, and Canada's cities are also home to every kind of international cuisine you could hope to find. If you're looking for something specifically Canadian, poutine is perhaps one of the main draws for food lovers to the country. This simple, filling dish is an indulgent mix of fries, gravy, and cheese curds that few can resist.
In Quebec, the French influence is very strong, and tourtière meat pie and doughboy dumplings are some of the treats on offer. The country is also famous for its maple syrup, which is excellent enjoyed with breakfast pancakes and also makes for a superb gift to bring back home. Smoked Atlantic salmon, boiled lobster, and Saskatoon berry jam are other regional specialities.
