CALLING ALL COLLEGE KIDS!!

CALLING ALL COLLEGE KIDS!!

With such a crazy start to College classes this year, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to going home for the holidays.  Keeping in tight COVID circles has let everyone become closer than usual.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a dorm dinner with those we’re close to before everyone takes off for home?

Just thinking about it makes me crave catering from Dosti Eats!  I love that place!  The word Dosti translated to English even means friendship…so appropriate!!

It doesn’t matter what my circle is craving – Dosti Eats always have us covered.  We can choose from so many different street food cuisines, even travel the world in one meal.  Especially at this time of year it’s nice to take an evening from studies and work to sit back, break bread and have some fun!

The best part is Dosti Eats caters to so many ethnic choices and they’ll deliver!  The delivery option is great giving us even more time to just kick back.

I’m thinking about a couple of salads – maybe Thai Mango Salad and Mexican Street Slaw with a tray each of Samosas, Sliders and Wraps.  Maybe we’ll ditch the finger foods and go all out with some Jerk Chicken, Souvlaki and Curry with Rice.

Whatever we end up choosing I know, as always, it will be both delicious and filling with no mess to argue about! 

I think we’ll ask the owner, Shalu, what “Christmas-y” treats she can send for dessert too.  Whatever she suggests – I know it will be great!

ARE YOU A "FOODIE"?

From one coast to another there are a lot of “foodies” in Canada.  We have such cultural ethnicity.  The other thing that we have is an extremely diverse landscape with each Province and Territory offering up their own uniqueness.  On top of that we have our local areas which have many different menus to tantalize us even further.

Starting on the East Coast we can try everything from a Jigg’s Dinner, Lobster Rolls to Screech Rum.  As we head into Quebec we all seem pretty familiar with Poutine, maple syrup and tortierre.

It’s in Ontario where things become a little different.  Here we are certainly known for our outstanding wineries and craft breweries, but our favorite foods are as diverse as the population!  We have our seasonal treats like corn on the cob or garden fresh toasted tomato sandwiches, however as food goes – I think our diversity shines in our “street eats”.

If  you were to Google the favorite food in Toronto you’d likely find it’s a veal sandwich, Ottawa – Beaver Tails, Barrie – Skewers, a Korean BBQ restaurant and so on.  We have different flavors on every corner it seems.

As we head into Manitoba it becomes very particular again.  There you’d find mouth watering pickerel most often pan-fried with a bit of butter.  Saskatoon actually got it’s name from the all-important Saskatoon berry either made into a pie or jam.  Alberta is beef, beef, and more beef, with Vancouver being salmon and of course Nanaimo bars.  In Nunavut we find the somewhat strange Muktuk (fried whale) or, surprisingly…Shwarma!  Finally in the northwest Territories we are told Artic Char and game meats such as caribou and muscox are the favorites.

Travelling through Canada is divine for “foodies”.  We have so many very unique tastes to savor.  Again though, I have to say how nice it is to be in Central Ontario – Barrie to be exact.  I love our diverse menu offerings.  There are so many exciting flavors!  One of the “favs” for sure is the Korean Street Food found at Skewers, just up from Downtown at 9 Clapperton Street.  Don’t take my word for it though – go ahead – try it for yourself!
