    For my school we have to do a project on unique food from any country of our choosing.
    I chose Canada, and I found long lists of food but they resembled American foods to much and I'm looking for delicious unique Canadian food only.
    So can any of our Canadian members or any member recommend me any unique foods from Canada?

    Edit: Can't be Alcohol

    Edit2: I only need 4 food items but i'd still love to hear other foods if I ever go to Canada so i can try them out

    Canada.
    Unique food in Canada..? Or do you mean a unique Canadian food? Here in Toronto, its very multicultural. You can find any kind of food so I'm assuming you're talking about food that specifically Canadian.

    Poutine [ http://www.splitbrain.org/_media/blog/2008-07/poutine.jpg its a really huge image ] can be one. Fries with gravy and cheese on top. Its really good but so fattening. I wouldn't care, I'd eat it because its that good. It depends where you get it though.

    Also, I just found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_cuisine

    Why would you care?
    Maple leaves? Oh and something famous in Canada, Maplestory and all the NX gamecode stuff. I gave you that extra information because I'm nice =D.

    @tails100: That was the most unhelpful post I have ever seen

    Poutine is unique, I guess. I don't consider it unique because I eat way too often. A Nanaimo bar is great! Originated in BC.

    I decided i'm going to do the project on
    • Poutine
    • BeaverTails
    • Nanaimo bar or Montreal Style Bagels (which one should I pick the bar or bagel, I want the one with more info)
    After I pick between the bar or bagel I need to find some sites about the food so i can get info on it and describe it.

    There was an ice cream called Moose knuckle or moose toe or something like that, but I can not remember. No, it's not what you think silly... [​IMG]

    In a way, yes. But it's bacon that has less fat than aussie bacon and is juicy.
