I was thinking of trying Panda Express, but I have seen some negative reviews lately.

Is local food culture dying?  Isn't global food culture becoming local food culture?  I can't think of much local food culture in my town.  But we have Pho and shawarma and poutine.

I'm going to make a restaurant that serves Pho with shawarma meat in it that you then pour on top of poutine and I will make a billion dollars.

Maybe ?  Was there ever much local food culture ?  Is Toronto so different from Ottawa or Windsor ?  Buffalo ?

Well Quebec has poutine, Chicago has its deep-dish pizza, i'm sure the east coast of Canada has its dishes (seafood and whatnot).

Toronto seems like a place that imports its food culture from other cultures around the world.  Do they have any local food culture though?  Has anyone in Toronto created any original food dishes?

Are we all just going out and eating Greek, Pho, Thai, Sushi, Italian, Mexican, Shawarma etc?

Does Canada even have any unique Canadian dishes from anywhere in the country, besides poutine and Hawaiian pizza?  We do have turkey, an indigenous bird of North America.  Do we just traditionally eat European/American food like hamburgers, hot dogs, fish and chips, and apple pie?

On the prairies, there are wild berries like saskatoons that I donít think grow anywhere else. When I was a kid at my summer cottage on Lake Winnipeg, there were bushes of them, along with wild raspberries and plums and mushrooms. There still are, but they're harder to find now. We borrow and adapt food from home cultures too, like perogies, which are a Manitoba staple because of all the Ukrainians. Lots of people eat Bannock too, which is an indigenous bread that can be really good.

@kimmy - friends of yours ?



Okay I know we've been through this before, but not all lesbians wear flannel, and not all women who wear flannel are lesbians. Lots of straight women like flannel. Also lesbians don't all have flat top haircuts or drive Subarus or eat generic-brand wheat squares for breakfast. Also, lesbians don't all know each other. We don't have a secret clubhouse that we all hang out in together. Also this isn't Corner Gas or Letterkenny, not everybody in Kim City knows each other.  I don't know why you'd assume they're my friends.

I've met Karen and Deb. I wouldn't say I actually know them. They seem nice. They had to close one of their locations earlier this year. It was in an area that depends on office workers coming in for lunch, and with many of those workers now working from home the businesses nearby have suffered a bit.  Their other locations are doing okay, I hope. We bought pizza from them a couple of weeks ago, it was pretty good.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that you would infer such a joke on my part.

Really I assumed that you knew them due to the size of your town and their, uh, visibility and I was right. 🙂

I like smaller town pizza too.  The pizza here is getting better.

Decided to make seared tunaÖ.  But instead of the usual spicy miso sauce over rice and tuna (with avocado, cukes, etc), I am trying marinating the tuna loin in olive oil, hot sauce and garlic, served rare over boiled potatoes with some parsley and lemon.

Iíll let you know later if itís good.

UPDATE:

Good.  But not as good as tuna, miso sauce and rice.

How could I have forgotten the fat boy? In Winnipeg, the fat boy is ubiquitous. I bet there are 30 different independently operated restaurants with fat boys on their menu.
You may say a fat boy is a chili burger, but it's a very unique chili burger. And it evolved here to become the fat boy.

I'm not mad that you asked, I'm just mad that you were right.  :P
