Nova Scotia is one of the most friendly provinces in Canada. They love to invite any new faces to join their table and chat the night away, even resulting in you wanting to stay in touch afterwards. You will never feel not welcomed when visiting Nova Scotia as they love newcomers who are looking to indulge in what they love so much about this province. Nova Scotia offers many different types of food and treats you will not find anywhere else but here.

Donair

This is a very popular food in Nova Scotia as it was made the number one food in Halifax in the year 2015. This dish contains a warm pita that is filled with spicy rotisserie beef mixed with small diced onions, tomatoes and finally topped with lettuce that is shredded. But one thing that makes this Donair different from any other one is the Maritimes uses their very own special sauce to give its an amazing sweet taste getting you hooked on it instantly.

Lobster Poutine

Poutine is a very popular dish among Canadians as the warm crispy fries topped with cheese curds and hot gravy to top it off always leave you in a satisfied mood after eating. But this poutine is not your average one; it contains two ingredients that are not in your normal poutine, which is cream sauce and lobster. This is a very popular poutine in the Maritimes, and the more you hear about it, the more you want to try it.

Oatcakes

No, this is not a type of granola or cake, it is either a very crunchy, non-thick oat-based snack or rich and soft depending on where in the Maritimes you happen to be. It best served with jam on top, but many others will eat it differently, by lightly salting it or adding chocolate on top. It is a treat to enjoy with a nice hot cup of coffee or even hot chocolate.
