Hamilton’s Around the Bay Road Race is the oldest road race on the continent. Rich in tradition, the race has been won by the best from around the world, including Boston Marathon winners and Olympic gold medalists. Whether you’re coming to run it yourself or to cheer someone on, we think a healthy dose of carbs is most certainly in order. Here are some suggestions for all kinds of palates.
A restaurant named The Bread Bar, seems like a natural choice for lovers of carbs. Their Mac and Cheese Gratin features smoked bacon, caramelized onion and aged cheddar.
If you’re looking for a plate of authentic Italian-style pasta, La Cantina is a great choice. Try the Spaghetti con Polpette, a traditional Italian dish with homemade veal meatballs just like the chef’s Mama used to make them.
If you prefer gluten-free options, you’ll find delicious gluten-free pasta and pizza choices at Café Limoncello in the Ottawa Street décor district.
Vegans can fuel up on meat-free Bolognese at Rawlicious in Westdale. Even meat lovers will adore the zucchini noodles topped with a mix of tomato marinara, basil pesto and crumbled seasoned nut loaf topped with pine nut parmesan.
