A friend has asked me for suggestions on what to feed or where to take 2 women from Germany who have never been to Canada before to experience 'Canadian' food in Calgary. They'll also be heading to Edmonton and Banff during their 2 week stay.
These are the food items we could think of that are unique to Canada and some of the potential restaurants/locations where they could try the foods:
-Montreal style Bagels (Montreal Bagels on Elbow Drive)
-Poutine (District or Laurier Lounge)
-Saskatoons (I can make a pie)
-Maple syrup (easy enough to make breakfast at home)
-Other French Canadian specialties? (Sugar pie, etc)?
Any other suggestions? I don't know these individuals personally so I'm not sure if they'd appreciate some of the food items that maybe have a Canadian spin to them. If you have ideas along those lines please share. For example, ginger beef is a type of chinese food only found in Canada. I haven't seen items like satay beef/chicken bánh mì outside of Calgary either.
The women are in university so we're looking for reasonably priced options in the cities mentioned.
