Canada Day took place on the first of July, and since then we’ve been dreaming of all the glory that is Canadian food.

 

Do you prefer savoury over sweet? Heck, why not have both! Here’s the top ten Canadian foods you must try.

 

10. Poutine

There’s really no better place to start than poutine.

A classic Canadian dish that is made of french fries topped with white cheddar cheese curds and gravy.

This makes the ordinary Australian chips and gravy seem like a dismal runner-up.

 

9. Peameal Bacon

Do you know what’s also better than ordinary bacon? Peameal bacon.

This Canadian spinoff consists of boneless pork loins, cut from the leaner portions of the loin. This means it’s healthy right? Right?

 

8. Bannock

Bannock is basically a type of griddled bread. You can pretty much use bannock instead of bread in anything.

 

7. Tourtière meat pie

Tortière is a meat pie originating from Quebec. Usually made with fine diced pork, veal or beef and is a traditional meal to enjoy on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.

It can also be bought from supermarkets all year long.

 

6. Maple candied bacon

Trust Canadian’s to candy-coat their bacon with icing sugar or maple syrup. Not that we’re complaining!

 

5. Canadian Bagel

4. Nanaimo bars
