If it’s good enough for President Obama, who stopped by the Byward Market in Ottawa on the way to the airport just to buy one, it’s good enough for you. BeaverTails are discs of fried dough with a bevy of topping options, such as whipped cream, banana slices, crumbled Oreos, and Nutella. You should go to Byward Market and try one, too.
Bloody Caesars are similar to bloody marys, except they use Clamato — a combination of tomato juice and clam broth. Give it a chance; after all, the drink recently earned itself a national day: May 14 has been declared National Caesar’s Day. Try it at Mission Diner in Calgary, where the drink has its own section of the menu dedicated to it.
Montreal-style bagels are smaller, denser, and, as a result of being boiled in water infused with honey, sweeter than your standard New York bagel. They are always baked in a wood-fired oven. Try them at Montreal’s famous St-Viateur, but don’t ask for them to be sliced and spread with cream cheese. That’s so New York. Try them plain and you won’t regret it.
This no-bake dessert consists of a layer of wafer crumbs topped with a layer of custard-flavored icing which is then capped with melted chocolate. Perfection, in other words. This treat is so popular in the city of Nanaimo, where it was invented, that there is a “Nanaimo bar trail” that tourists can follow.
