Tim Hortons

1964 Legendary ice hockey player Tim Horton opened the first Tim Hortons (Tims) restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Today, Tim Hortons sells more than 2 billion cups of coffee a year worldwide.

Canadians are said to have Tim Hortons running through their veins. After going to school in Canada, it’s not hard to see people on the street carrying Tims. There is even a Tims in the Student Center on the McHorse campus, and countless students line up at all times of the day.

Until February 2019, the 4850th Tims store was set up in Shanghai. At present, there are nearly 50 Tims stores in the Chinese market, which are very popular among young people

Tims are so popular in China, of course you should try the local ones after coming to Canada. If star Dad takes the high-end business route, then Tims in North America is more affordable classic grounding route. You’ll find that you can buy a cup of coffee for more than $1, and a delicious breakfast can be bought for less than $5, and it tastes pretty good.

In addition to Tims’ signature double-double (hot coffee with double cream and double sugar), Tims has plenty of good, flavorful drinks: Iced Capp (smoothie yyds! Steeped tea double double, steeped Grey double double, Vanilla cream cold brew, Steeped tea double double, Earl Grey double double.

Popeyes Chicken

Having said Tims, another must say is Popeys fried chicken. Popeyes, which originated in the United States, was founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and has been expanding overseas since 1984, with its first overseas store in Canada.

In 2017, Popeyes became a Canadian citizen when it was acquired by Restaurant Brands International, a Canadian-American multinational fast food holding company founded in Canada.

Popeyes are as ubiquitous in Canada as Tpims, with more than 15 in Hamilton alone. Because of its variety and affordable price, it is also favored by the student Party. Classic examples are Biscuit (butter flavored muffin yyds), Tender Combo, Popcorn Shrimp, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, etc.

Why: Don’t want to eat McDang? Popeyes can also top ah, stick autumn fat best choice!


What do French fries and cheese become when you combine them? Two delicious things combine to make something even tastier! This is the famous Poutine in Canada.

Poutine is a truly Canadian dish consisting of French fries, cheese cubes and gravy. The Chinese name translates directly from the ingredients to “gravy cheese fries.” Although the name sounds corky, it is indeed a national dish of Canada.

Several cities in Quebec can claim to be the birthplace of the national dish, but that hasn’t stopped Poutine from evolving. As more fast food chains add Poutine to their menus, the dish has evolved from a routine that started with cheese sauce instead of gravy, sour cream sauce instead of cheese cubes, or topping with bacon, chicken, and so on.

Try authentic Poutine in Quebec if you have the chance, but if you’re in much of the country, it’s a good idea to indulge in a fast food chain, where the salty gravy is paired with soft, wag fries, and the hot gravy melts the cheese and makes the cheese pull. Despite the heat bomb, it’s hard not to taste good. I am willing to gain three jin!!

Why it’s good: It’s rich, and you can eat meat, cheese and French fries. I’ll do it first!

Maple Syrup

As a famous maple leaf country, in addition to the beautiful scenery of red leaves in autumn, another product that Canadians are proud of is maple syrup.

Maple syrup was first made and used by Native Americans in North America. This practice was adopted by European settlers, who gradually changed production methods. Almost all of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada and the United States. The Canadian province of Quebec is the largest producer, accounting for 70 percent of world output.

Sucrose is the most common sugar in maple syrup. In Canada, syrup must be made entirely from the SAP of maple trees and must be at least 66% sugar, which is a high standard to produce a proper bottle of maple syrup.

How can maple syrup be served? If you only use it with waffles, toast, and oatmeal, you’ll lose the plot. Many Canadians also use maple syrup as a baking ingredient, as well as as a sweetener or flavoring agent. It’s hard to say no to this healthy flavor derived from nature!

Recommended reasons: The taste is sweet and mellow, universal collocation is not afraid of mistakes, as if one is in the maple forest ~

For the appearance level is justice for people, the packaging is also very nice!

Icewine is a famous specialty in Canada, because it can only be produced in areas where the weather conditions are below freezing, so Canada’s unique natural conditions bring convenience to the production of icewine.

To produce icewine, grapes are left on the vine until a sustained temperature of -8°C or below is reached, at which point they are picked by hand. After picking, the grapes must be pressed before thawing, resulting in a high-sugar, high-acid juice.

As a dessert accompaniment, ice wine is not meant to be swigged, only sipped. Chill the wine until 5-7 degrees Celsius and pour out a small glass and serve it with dessert or fruit or nut snacks. Just be careful not to go too sweet with the dessert, or you may be overwhelmed by the excessive sugar content.

Ice wine is available at the LCBO, usually for around $20+.
