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

Aside from the many things to do in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the other thing I loved about city is its food scene! There are so many places to eat in St. John’s, and some of which are listed in Canada’s Best 100 Restaurants!

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. I visited a lot of the best restaurants in St. John’s, and, in this food guide, you’ll find the must-try food in these places.

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!

Coconut Red Curry Mussels at YellowBelly Brewery and Public House

Scallop from Raymonds Restaurant

Most flavourful scallop I’ve had to date. Raymonds Restaurant is in Canada’s Best 100 Restaurants in 2016, and definitely one of the best restaurants in St. John’s! It definitely was for me.

Seafood lover’s dream crepe right here!
