First Nations Food
Aboriginal cuisine with a modern twist
Though it’s the oldest cooking style in North America, most people are unfamiliar with aboriginal cuisine. But thanks to culinary programs geared towards Native cooking, First Nations restaurants are popping up all over the continent. From bannock to buffalo, these restaurants all feature locally sourced ingredients with a modern twist.

Opened last summer, Aaron Joseph Bear Robe’s café offers a variety of aboriginal food, which changes seasonally. The menu is meat-heavy but, with dishes like bison perogies, duck confit, bacon-wrapped whitefish and mincemeat pie, who needs veggies?
