    Question Classic Canadian Food Restaurant...

    Ok everyone, not sure how to word this topic, but interpret it as you will.

    A friend of mine has been in Canada for 3-1/2 months, he is heading back to China in two weeks for the summer break. Before he leaves he wants to go for some "classic canadian food" at a restaurant.

    He wants me to pick the restaurant, and a few guys from class, our girlfriends and him and a friend will be going for dinner...

    Being the guailo that I am, I am not sure how to ..... pick... a classic canadian restaurant...

    What would you guys think would be a good place to take a person who is not from here that isnt too expensive, and preferably in the north.
    And nothing fast food, or trashy...

    Dave

    haha... my cousins from the Vegas came up to visit and wanted me to do the same thing... Canadian food for cheap. i had no clue where to bring them. we ended up at Swiss Chalet of all places!

    classic Canadian dishes at a fancy restaurant would probably have some sort of game meat on it... like Bison or Quail or something. or maybe some fish from the coast. but those kinda things can get pricey and are seasonal.

    Salmon!
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    I agree with the wild game, unfortunately your not going to find too many restaurants that are cheap. Maybe try going to the River Cafe for lunch instead of dinner...

    If you want the ulimate Canadian cuisine expreince take them to the Grizzly House in Banff for lunch and have a wild game hot rock
