Newfoundland serves unusual (and tasty) dining options
Recent Story Ideas:
When I ask the owner of a very local diner in tiny Port au Choix where the moose came from for the delicious moose burger I’ve just wolfed down, she tells me she hunted it herself. I clearly realize that dining in Newfoundland is not like anyplace else I’ve travelled before.
I feel the same when someone puts cod tongues in front of me. Ditto the French fries covered in dressing and gravy – yes, the kind of dressing that usually accompanies a holiday turkey.
While Newfoundland offers me all the food trappings of modern Canadian society, it’s the cuisine created during a time when the rest of the world was much less accessible that really tickles my taste buds.
Variations on many of the items below can be found in a selection of local eateries. In St. John’s, and worth special note: Bacalao serves astonishingly delicious “nouveau Newfoundland” cuisine. The Duke of Duckworth does great cod ’n’ chips (ask for dressing and gravy). Further afield, I enjoy the local specialties at the Sea Echo Motel’s restaurant in tiny Port au Choix, and The Lightkeeper’s in St. Anthony. Ask locally for other eateries.
