Not sure where to go to eat since it’d been over a decade since the female human had lived there, we got a few suggestions from @andrealauder, a fellow Saskatchewanian. She told us of a restaurant called Weczeria Food & Wine, that is located on Broadway Ave, the closest equivalent to Edmonton’s Whyte Ave that Saskatoon has, this street is filled with quirky, independent stores, cafés and restaurants.

We perused the menu and tried to stifle giggles, as we reconciled the items on the menu with what ingredients could be considered fresh and local to Saskatoon. Considering the time of year – March when we visited, and the land locked location, some items are fairly obviously neither local nor seasonal including tuna, Parmesan cheese, lime, figs, and cherries…

We wondered further about the restaurant’s supposed environmentally friendly slant after a visit to the washroom revealed they used disposable paper towels. For a restaurant claiming to try to be environmentally friendly by not printing off page long menus as it changes, we weren’t sure why they would choose to use disposable paper towels in their washrooms instead of hand towels or something similar that could be washed.
