Pork Month – Celebrate with Sunterra Market

Last Friday, June 3rd I had to go see what all the fuss was about at Sunterra Market here in Calgary. They kicked off pork month serving up some fabulous pork specials on their rooftop patio. Sunterra is offering discounts and specials all of June.

It was smokin’ on the patio as Chef Micah prepared a variety of mouth-watering pork dishes to satisfy anyone’s taste. Customers could enjoy pork shoulder, pulled pork, tenderloin and so much more. The wait staff offered samples of local craft beer and a drink menu with specials that included a bacon caesar.






pork tacos


I ordered the Mexican spiced pork tacos which were to die for! This shoulder was very tender and juicy. The combination of spice with cool sweet fruit was sensational. And I’ll take a topping of fresh fruit salsa with my protein any day!






bacon pork tenderloin


I also tried the blackberry jalapeño – glazed bacon – wrapped tenderloin skewers. These, I must say were cooked to perfection. The combination of flavours made this one a real treat. A barbecue inspiration this summer perhaps?




bacon gelato



Of course when it’s 30 degrees on a patio, how else do you cool off and get that much needed calcium back into the body but with some… GET THIS —> Double smoked whiskey pecan bacon gelato! OMG.






So after all that, including two drinks, my bill was just under $28, which is a steal of a deal if you ask me. Make the effort and go check these guys out, they have some incredible deals on right now and specials all month long. If you #digthepig be sure to take home some delicious Alberta pork for entertaining your family and friends this summer!
