Dining

Beavertails are scrumptious, deep-fried, flat pastries in the shape of, you guessed it, beaver tails. Pam and Grant Hooker opened their Byward Market flagship stall in 1980 and haven't looked back ever since. Made with whole-wheat flour and cooked in 100 percent soya oil, plain beaver-tails are actually a relatively healthy snack. For the more adventurous, toppings include cinnamon and sugar or grated cheese. Don't forget to carry cash, as Hooker's Beavertails doesn't accept cards for payment.
