The vibrant Kitchener Waterloo area is recognized as the heart of Canada’s tech industry. Kitchener Waterloo also boasts a long and tasty history of cuisine that is unique to the city, thanks to early German and Pennsylvania Dutch immigrants, the town was named Berlin back then. These immigrants brought with them a cuisine that even today can be found in many area restaurants: schnitzels, kraut wickel (cabbage rolls), stuffed rolled ribs, sweet-braised pigtails, beef roulade with braised red cabbage, 'cook' cheese (koch kaese) and Limburger cheese sandwiches. Kitchener’s Oktoberfest, the largest in North America, has been a tasty celebration of food and drink for many years. Everybody’s taste buds are rewarded.
Starting in the 1990s a large influx of cultures from Asia, the Middle East, Central America and the Caribbean has created a multicultural bonanza for cuisine in the KW area. From pho to butter chicken to chow mein, from shawarma, burritos and guacamole to hot spicy rotis and the sweet apple fritters popularized long ago by the Pennsylvania Dutch immigrants of the 1800s. And to enhance all those mouth watering flavours, A1’s selection of hundreds of international herbs, spices and sweeteners is second to none.
With meat, dairy and fresh produce covered; as well as packaged and canned goods from all over the world, A1 Cash & Carry’s location in Kitchener is a convenient one-stop shopping location that will supply all Kitchener & Waterloo’s restaurants needs.
