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.
Salmon n' Bannock (Vancouver, B.C.)
This gourmet restaurant’s menu reads like an adventure guide with wild sockeye salmon, Arctic muskox and Ojibway wild rice. It also offers several kinds of bannock including its signature salmon and bannock burger, and the Indian taco, topped high with chili.
