    Toronto has way better ethnic food than Monteal.

    Plus, steamed hot dogs wtf.

    I don't consider poutine to be ethnic food.

    (In fact, I don't even like poutine. And fucking steamed hot dogs.)

    But sugar shacks are totally boss.

    That depends on what you call ethnic. Poutine is 100%, without a doubt an ethnic food in the culturally distinct, foreign sense. But if you're determining ethnic by race rather than by geographical constraints, than no, it's not exactly naan bread or enchiladas.

    I won't get started on this "not liking poutine" nonsense.

    I like fries, I like cheese, I like gravy. But when you mix them together I see deep-fried carbs smothered in melted fat and then covered with more fat.

    Perhaps it's that half my family is French-Canadian, so I'm used to all the food. I consider it local stuff, the same way I consider Ontario roots and stuff local stuff.

    But regardless, outside of French-Canadian food, Montreal is hurting.

    I am told Montréal is a great place for smoked meat.

    Also, poutine is totally great, what is wrong with you?

    I went to La Banquise last month (big poutine place) and there was a ridiculous line up of people to get in (that was at about midnight). They had like 60 kinds of poutine. This place is the temple of gravy.

    I'd rather eat pea soup.

    Newfoundland has the best mussels anywhere.

    You can also enjoy cod tongues. Although I don't like them personality, my whole family loves them.

    Yeah when I cooked perogies I actually first fry up some bacon and onions together. I then boil the perogies for a little bit, and fry them in the left over bacon grease.

    tres magnifique

    This pretty much how I've made perogies my entire life, and it is awesome. They're even better if they're home made by someone that knows what they're doing.

    And I know how Tim Hortons is this whole big Canadian thing, but unless it's just where I live, I find it to be awful. I don't drink coffee and their tea is brutal, and probably 8/10 times they can't make a proper hot chocolate. A lot of people that I work with have been switching over to McDonald's coffee when Roll up the Rim isn't around.

    The donuts/timbits are good though.

    It isn't just Kingston.


    On another point, all good Canadians know that the bigger cities are just better. In every way.

    Ever go out into rural Ontario? Yawn. Ottawa's pretty boring too, as is any other town I've visited.

    Toronto is where it's at. I like to assume Montreal and Vancouver are similarly great.

    I should really travel to the other provinces some time. The farthest I've ever been in Canada is London, Ontario (I'm from Toronto).

    Milk in bags is fucking awesome, and I can't imagine drinking it any other way.

    Coffee crisp is one chocolate bar I hear alot of americans like, and is one of the few things we have that they don't. Coffee crisp is fucking awesome. I might go get one later from around the corner after work :)

    Those fruit smoothies they have at Timmy's sucks big time. Do not buy one. They recently upped the cost of their coffee by something like 7 cents, and it was fucking news on the radio.

    The only time I ever drink Timmy's is during roll up the rim to win. Otherwise I avoid their products like the plague.

    Tim Hortons is pretty terrible though.

    I don't drink coffee, so I'm not sure how good theres is, I just grab chocolate milk and a muffin sometimes. Can't complain about their muffins, always good. I just hate the fact that if you don't want to wait in line, you pretty much have to go in the middle of the day.

    Their soup is worse than canned soup, their coffee is terrible, the donuts are a joke now... I will actually admit I love their cinnamon raisin bagels though. Recently though they have been managing to screw that up on me too. It seems like lately they have some terrible staffing and their products are gradually going downhill.

    The french vanilla is basically sugar and milk. I'm guessing they put in some brown food colouring to make it look like coffee.

    I go to York University and there's like four in an around campus. Within two blocks on Keele Street alone there are two, and another two within campus buildings.

    Also since we're pretty off-topic. How much do you think a trip to Montreal will cost? I'm talking like, 4-5 people, probably going without a car.

    That really intends on what you want to do, level of accommodations you want, etc.

    Yeah the only advantage Timmies has is it's cheap, and even that is slipping away.

    If I want good coffee and want to support a Canadian company I go to Second Cup.
