Boralia: A history lesson in Canadiana 
that tastes unforgettably good

CHRIS NUTTALL-SMITH, THE GLOBE AND MAIL >

"The most positive menu-writing innovation I’ve seen in this city appeared last fall at Boralia, a polished and groundbreaking new restaurant on lower Ossington Avenue. Boralia’s aim is to celebrate the historical foods of Canada – but not just the usual poutines and butter tarts."

Boralia a delicious lesson in Canadian history

Amy Pataki, The Toronto Star >

"Think Canadian cuisine is all maple syrup and poutine? Think again. Thanks to the new Boralia on Ossington Ave., my edible Canada now includes Chinese-style deviled eggs, Acadian beignets and a seemingly simple but utterly captivating 17th-century dish involving mussels, butter and pine needles. "

"The highlight one night was a casserole of dense salt cod quenelles, their marine flavour ratcheted up by a bisque-like velouté and tender lobes of lobster. A history lesson has never left me so happy."
