What I Ate in Canada


It’s that time of the week again, and this week we’re eating our way through Canada–specifically Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (PEI)! Get the melted butter ready–there’s loads of lobster to explore!
Breakfast

Lobster for breakfast? Sign me up! We also lucked out and found a couple of great cafes. One was Receiver Coffee Company on PEI where I had the BELT sandwich (above right middle) , which was bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato, lettuce, onion, and awesome sauce. The other was in the public gardens in Halifax. I don’t think it had a name, but boy did they have some great pastries (the pic with the orange mug)! My mom and I sipped our coffee while we enjoyed the gardens, and my brother enjoyed the food!

Lunch

Lobster again? You betchya! The best lobster roll I had the whole week came from a truck and is pictured above. My mom’s lobster chowder was amazing, and they even made the lobster salad incredible! We definitely took advantage of the lobster situation, especially since all PEI lobster is sustainably harvested!

Supper

We really let ourselves indulge for this! Everything above is pretty self-explanatory, except perhaps the picture at the bottom. That’s lobster poutine! Poutine is a Canadian comfort food made from French fries, gravy, cheese curds, and whatever else you want on it (like lobster). It was amazing on every level! Always go for poutine. Always.

So that was it! What did I miss that I have to try next time? Let me know and I’ll put it on the list!
