Saskatchewan Food and Drink

You can find a good selection of restaurants in all the province's cities and major towns catering to all tastes and budgets. Alcohol is sold only in licensed stores, licensed restaurants, cocktail lounges, and dining and beverage rooms. Retail outlets operate throughout the province.

Specialities


Whitefish and pickerel are marketed by aboriginal (First Nations) co-operatives.
Wild rice harvested by First Nations people is an excellent accompaniment to the abundant wild fowl which includes partridge, prairie chicken, wild duck and goose.
Saskatoon berries, similar to blueberries, are used for jams, jellies and saskatoon berry pie, often eaten with fresh cream. Other wild berries include pinchberries and cranberries, which make a tart and tangy jelly, ideal with wild fowl meals.

Tipping

It is customary to tip 15% in bars and restaurants.

Drinking age

19.
