Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse in Edmonton is taking Alberta Pork’s June is Pork month promotion to a new level with their all-you-can eat bacon extravaganza. 

IMG_1387In addition to their participation as a food vendor at Porkapalooza at Borden Park June 20th and 21st, and BaconfestYEG on June 30th at the Jubilee Auditorium, Pampa in Edmonton is offering a Baconfest Feature throughout June to all their nightly restaurant diners. 

If you haven’t been to Pampa in Edmonton before, first up, you need to go hungry. The $50 fixed-priced menu features continuous table-side service of 10 select cuts of Canadian beef, pork, poultry and includes a salad salad bar with in-house baked breads.

This month, evening diners can upgrade to the Baconfest Feature for $65 which includes the regular menu, plus unlimited access to a bacon-wrapped petite tender, marinated BBQ pork belly, and bacon wrapped chicken thighs.

I checked out the new Baconfest Feature on Saturday evening and learned that since starting the promo on June 2nd, approximately 30% of June’s evening diners have opted for the pork-packed promotion.

The pork belly is cooked in foil – low and slow – for three hours.

After slow roasting, the foil is removed and the belly is moved closer to the charcoal to get crispy.

The pork belly, with its perfectly crunchy skin, is served table side as part of the Baconfest Feature.

While the dessert is not included in their regular fixed price menu – the Baconfest Feature does! It includes a petite chocolate cake with bacon caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream and topped with caramelized bacon. that makes the $15 bacon upgrade a bacon bargain.
