From coast to coast Canada’s culinary scene is thriving. In this weekly column, we round up the biggest food-focused stories from across the country each week.
See what your fellow Canadians are hungry for right here:
- American diner chain Johnny Rockets landed in Vancouver this week. Hopefully, it does better than its foray into Toronto where the Dundas-Square location was only short-lived.
- Nostalgic skiers and tourists to Whistler are mourning the loss of a great one this week. Dups Burritos closes after 21 years of cheap tasty eats near the slopes.
- Calgarians craving Pinkberry won’t need to drive out West Edmonton Mall anymore. The Froyo brand has partnered with Second Cup and will begin rolling out tart frozen-yogurt in cafes across Canada.
- Montreal spent the week celebrating all things bacon! The epic week-long bacon festival wraps up today.
- Toronto is looking to possibly turning city parks into beer gardens with a proposal modeled after the City of Philadelphia’s “Parks on Tap” initiative.
- The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing which means red carpet, premieres, and of course, after parties. Toronto bars have even extended last call to keep the aftera-the-after-parties going strong.
