DH Vancouver Staff Feb 21, 2014 8:34 am

Our Canadian athletes sure have made us proud. With incredible performances in skiing, skating, bobsledding, curling, and that amazing win by our women’s hockey team, we haven’t stopped cheering since day one. With a couple days left at Sochi, we can only hope to see those flashy gold medals in Canadian hands a few more times. So Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow are celebrating our Home and Native Land in this week’s cheap eats. Here’s where you can chow down on the cuisine our country is known for, all for $5 or less. Go Canada go!


You can’t truly be Canadian without indulging in the perfect trifecta of fries, cheese curds, and gravy.


 Place: Brado Pizza

Cost: $5 for a small poutine

Butter Tarts

Butter Tarts are considered one of Canada’s quintessential desserts. Conveniently, they just happen to be individually sized so you don’t have to share.


Place: Tartine Bakery and Cafe

Price: $1.95 per tart


Handmade and baked in a wood-fired oven, Montreal-style bagels are sweet, dense, chewy, and the perfect excuse to load up on carbs.


Place: Siegel’s Bagels

Price: $1 for a single bagel, with cream cheese $3.10, with flavoured cream cheese $3.60.

California Roll

Though it’s called the California Roll, thanks to renowned sushi-chef Hidekazu Tojo, it was created right here in Vancouver.

Sushi Star

Place: Sushi Star

Price: $4.95 for two California rolls (total 16 pieces)

Maple Syrup

It’s fair to say that pancakes and waffles would be nowhere without maple syrup. Same goes for crepes.


Place: Trixi’s Crepes and Coffehaus

Price: $5 for a crepe with maple syrup
