with gravy (yes, it's that simple and quite delicious).
It originated in the 1950s in Quebec and has made
its way to Ontario. Four restaurants claimed the
invention of this dish but it is unclear who was
the first one to create it. Since then has become a
go-to food for Canadians and has its own festivals
during the summer. There are places you can find
in Toronto that also serve vegan and vegetarian
2) Algonquin Park - Since becoming an official park in 1893, it is one of the most iconic provincial parks that people come visit between the spring and fall. They have many outdoor activities including canoeing, swimming, and wildlife watching for day trips. If you want a weekend getaway, you can rent a
cottage or cabin. Moose and beavers should be on
3) Cherry Blossoms at High Park - During the spring time, make sure to check out the beautiful cherry blossoms (Sakuras in Japanese). This tradition dates back to 1959, when the Japanese ambassador Toru-Hagiwara gave 2000 as a gift for Toronto's support of refugees after World War Two. The "Sakura Project" was born and since then, cherry blossoms bloom every spring at High Park.
