Where in Canada is the best location for food lovers?

I've never been to Canada before, so I'd like for one of my next trips to be there soon!  I love eating good food when I travel, so what city in Canada has the best and most wide variety of food and restaurant options?

You should definitely consider Vancouver. It's a food lover's paradise with so many different types of cuisines and restaurants available. Especially if you're looking for Asian food. The large number of immigrants in the city means you can find really delicious food for low prices. Some of my favourites are Phnom Penh RestaurantGuuSantouka Japanese Ramen & Hai Phong Vietnamese Restaurant. Beyond just Asian food, the city has a thriving food culture and everyone loves to eat. Lots of great options for many different types of food like Salt Tasting Room, Nuba in Gastown, & Ask for Luigi Restaurant. There are also lots of vegetarian and vegan options if you're looking for something lighter. Granville Island Public Market is a great place to visit with many artisan foods..

If you're looking for wide variety Toronto has it. You can find a restaurant for every single nationality and most regional areas as well. Many divided by neighbourhood, Little Italy, Chinatown, Indian Bazaar, The Danforthfor Mediterranean food - we even have Little Tibet! With lots of up and coming restos, homegrown faves and internationally recognized eateries you can eat your way across the city.  Crowd faves these days are Parts & Labour Grand Electric Momofuku Milk Bar Oh and of course a must is a visit to the St. Lawrence Market the mecca of food for their famous peameal sandwiches! Pick your favourite kind of food and I could recommend a place but there are too many to list. It really depends on how formal you like your food and how much you like to spend but a quick search on BlogTO.com and you won't be at a loss for choices.  

BUT as a Torontonian I always travel to Montreal for the food. Staples like Schwartz's St-Viateur Bagel La Banquise Resto are all classics but Garde Manger is a personal fave. If you like drinks and nightlife you'll definitely want to hit up the Le Plateau. If you're a carnivore who wants to indulge head to Restaurant au Pied de Cochon. The quality is just so good and the flare is very European with cafes everywhere you'll enjoy wherever you end up!

Any of the large cities (Vancouver, Toronto) have great food options, but pale in comparison to the character of Quebec City.  We were there this summer and had poutine galore (fries, gravy, cheese curds), quite possibly the perfect food.  Check out Restaurant Le Chic Shack right across from the Chateau Frontenac.  Head to L'Affaire est Ketchup (phenomal restaurant, Anthony Bourdain recommended it to us on Trippy) for a lovely, amazing, fresh, top-notch restaurant.  We also headed up to an fast-casual Lebanese restaurant called La Galette Libanaise-their pita-ish sandwiches create dreams!  And there are plenty of places to have French crepes, like Le Casse-Crêpe Breton.
