'Boralia' is a Toronto restaurant that draws inspiration from Canada's indigenous culture and modern multicultural identity. While many restaurants feature patriotic touches, Boralia is one of the few establishments that explores issues of cuisine and identity.

The heritage-themed restaurant is owned by Evelyn Wu and Wayne Morris. The couple started the restaurant as a way to honor Canada's indigenous culture and its current multicultural identity. The menu is inspired by indigenous ingredients and the foods of Canada's different immigrant communities. The menu reflects the diversity of Canadian culture and the impact this has had on the country's cuisine. Each dish is designed to serve as an edible representation of Canada's past and current cultural identity.

Although many restaurants feature foods from other cultures, Boralia takes a more thoughtful approach to choosing dishes that accurately reflect Canada's unique cultural make-up.
