So a few weeks ago, BJ went up to Canada. I have forever been begging him to take as many pictures as possible, because he goes to so many neat places, and hello, how many times do I talk about food and fun places (okay, NOLA) on this thing…. so here we go!
Schwabl’s : Anthony Bourdain went here, so you know it has to be good! They are known for their roast beef on ‘weck. It’s some kind of bread with salt and other herbs baked into the top. If you could zoom in (like I could on the iphone) you can really see it. It looks delish. And then the guy behind the counter. BJ had a pretty funny story about this place only taking cash and having to use the bathroom really bad, but I won’t bore you all with that tale.
Niagara Falls. ‘Nuff said.
Porchetta (pronounced porketta) sandwich; roasted pork with crispy pork skin with lots of seasoning, on a homemade bun, and cracked mustard and hot sauce. Apparently it was good. There’s stuff coming out of his mouth just describing it.
And apparently this makes his mouth water even more. This is Poutine (poo-teen), and it appears to be a heart attack in a box. It’s French Fries with cheese curds, peppercorn gravy, with bacon and barbecue pork. The third picture was to show that, indeed, BJ is not a cow and could not finished all of this.
I also got a present from this fun trip; a stuffed moose. That I promptly named Mountie….eh.
