Just What In The Hell is Canadian Food?

2006_3_9poutine.jpgD.B. Scott over at the Canadian Magazines blog pulled the numbers from the survey in the back of Toronto Life (not up yet). The question this month is about what kind of restaurant you go too when you eat out, fitting considering it’s TL’s restaurant issue. Chinese and Italian top the bill at 21% and 17% respectively but in a strong third is “Canadian” food at 12%.
Which makes us wonder what in the world is Canadian food? Just what exactly are the 12% of people surveyed by Leger for this poll eating? Are 12% of the people being surveyed by Leger actually going to their neighbourhood Tim Horton’s and having soup in a bread bowl as a “night out?” Or is Canadian food like the food from this Montreal restaurant, poutine with foie gras (pictured), Torontoist could deal with that.
