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.
