    Me and DH are going soon and we are first timers. We only have been once to North America, a weekend in Boston. We are looking forward meeting Canada icon_smile.gif
    I just wonder if there are any must tastes or even some local dishes i could cook already while looking forward to our trip. Thank you so much for your help.

    I would like to cook something typically NOW. I can not wait to go and see and taste...
    if i search on typical restaurants/foods all i seem to get is related to China Town and Little Italy and other foods from all around the globe which seem to be huge in the Toronto region but nothing typical canadian. I am a little confused...

    Iceland:
    Canada is an extremely cosmopolitan country, and in particular, Toronto is most cosmopolitan than any other city in the world. While we do not necessarily have areas of the country dedicated exclusively to ethnic groups, we do enjoy communities who have set up wonderful areas where they can enjoy each other, and share their customs and foods with the rest of the population.

    You mentioned China Town and the Italian district.... Not to forget our concentration of equally wonderful Greek,. Portuguese, Spanish, Indian/Pakistani cultures.

    Toronto is multi-faceted, and no one ethnic group stands out exclusively Having said that, we welcome visitors from all over the world... Typically Canadian might be dishes prepared by our Inuit population, in far northern regions,.

    Sure.... not to mention genuinely Canadian butter tarts... Our "tarts" are slathered in Maple Butter, mixed with crushed walnuts, poured in shells and baked to a delicious golden brown before they take to the corners on Yonge Street.... rotfl.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    You must try Poutine while you are here. It can be found anywhere in Canada, although its origins were in Quebec. Bear with me here - it sounds gross, but OMG is it good!!!!

    Poutine = Home cut fries, covered with white cheese curds and smothered with gravy! Even with all that goodness, I still put a little malt vinegar and ketchup on mine. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm talking about serving them like poutine, gravy, cheese curds, bacon, onions.

    Yeah, I know -- I'm just saying how terribly good pierogies are. I'd never heard of them or tasted any until I went to friends' homes in northern Ontario and Alberta. Your idea of serving them like poutine is yet another delicious variation, I would think! icon_biggrin.gif

    Really? Never heard of them? Wow, I thought they were known everywhere. Learn something new every day!
    I love pierogies, fried in some butter and onions, maybe a little bacon.
    My favourite is potatoe and cheese, DH loves his stuffed with cottage cheese and then a rhubarb or blueberry sauce poured over them like his Mom always made.

    I like my poutine served as the original recipe, curds and gravy yummy.gif
    But there are so many other variations to try!
    There is a place in Toronto that is supposed to be the best Poutine place around, here is the website:
