I’m from the Maritimes, so to me “Canadian food” means donairs and garlic fingers. It used to be that you could only get them on the East Coast, but in the past year or two they’ve started popping up on menus across Toronto, from the high-end deconstructed donairs at Hopgood’s Foodliner to the traditional kind at Fuzzbox. Yum!
Deconstructed Dish: A donair affair Perhaps the most exciting addition to the Toronto food landscape, for transplanted Haligonians at least, is the donair. The shaved meat wrap’s origins stem from some combination of Turkish, Lebanese and Greek cuisine (the preparation is much like a gyro), but the precise history is shrouded in mystery.
