Passion for Pork

Recap: Swine & Dine at Cafe Del Sol Mexican Kitchen

Sharman - Thursday, July 31, 2014
On Tuesday night 30 Edmonton Swine and Diners enjoyed a sneak peek preview of Cafe Del Sol Mexican Kitchen, a locally owned and operated restaurant opening in early August.
Chef Michael Wozney and his team created a Mexican-inspired five-course menu featuring Alberta pork from appetizer to dessert. The evening had us seated at one long table featuring a mix of family-style and individual dishes with tasty treats like chorizo sausage and crispy pig ears. Here was our Swine and Dine menu for the evening:
amuse bouche- chili rimmed pork consomme shooter with Jose Cuervo Cinge
1st course – Taco Duo –  Chorizo and Al Pastor
2nd Course – Crispy Pig Ear Salad
3rd Course – Classic Pozole with traditional condiments
4th Course – Conchinita Pibil
5th Course – Lime curd with field berries and almond bacon brittle
Just when I thought I couldn’t have another bite – Chef Wozney lightened things with a sinful serving of lime curd, fruit and almond bacon brittle. I’m told that all dishes will be available on the new menu – either as regular items or featured as specials. This is a pork-lovers paradise – be sure to visit this spicy new restaurant soon!
