12 Best Dishes in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador

Travelling Foodie's Best Dishes in St. John's, Newfoundland

As I mentioned in Travelling Foodie’s Best Sights in St. John’s, one thing I loved about St. John’s is it being also a foodie haven! There are so many great restaurants to visit, including some of the best restaurants in the country!

One thing I love to do as a Travelling Foodie is to do what I call a Food Trip where I hop around different restaurants to try something special. In here, you’ll find one dish per restaurant that I find truly unique where the dish doesn’t coincide similarly with another restaurant’s.

Without further ado, here are Travelling Foodie’s Best Dishes in St. John’s (and near the city) in alphabetical order!

Arancini at Evoo in the Courtyard


An explosion of flavours in one ball! Crispy risotto croquette with oxtail, peas, wild mushroom and mozzarella, pomodoro sauce, Grana Padano

Buffalo Pig Ears at Chinched Bistro

Seriously one of the most addicting bar food there is, and goes perfectly well with an ice cold beer or their signature cocktails!
