6 Great Pork Dishes To Try Around Calgary!

Sabroso’s Cubanos pork-filled sandwich hits the spot perfectly for lunch or dinner!

While summer is slowly dwindling away, make the most of your remaining vacation days by dining out around the city. From spicy soups to sandwiches, here are six great dishes full of tender, flavourful pork worth ordering before August comes to a close!

Anejo – Pozole

Soup isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind during the summer, but Anejo’s take on this classic Mexican dish seems a bowl full of braised pork, radish, mushrooms, lime and onion in a rich broth topped with tortillas, mozzarella and cerveza!

Cibo – Pork Panino

Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? Slices of pork are layered with raddichio, shaved fennel, red onion and fig jam. Best enjoyed on this restaurant’s gorgeous side patio, of course! That is, if you can get a seat.

JoJo’s BBQ – Sloppy JoJo

Being a hot mess is not always a good thing, but in this case, it most definitely is. A combination of smokey brisket, pulled pork, barbecue sauce and bacon gravy. Also rumoured to cure hangovers!

The Libertine – Pulled Pork Cheesesteak Sandwich

Kicking the standard cheesesteak up a notch, Libertine’s kitchen tosses some sliced pepperocini, deep-fried bacon and pulled pork into this American classic.

Menyatai – BBQ Pork Ramen

Kensington’s newest restaurant, offers up some great Japanese fare including this bowl of ramen. Served piping hot with bean sprouts, corn, a soft boiled egg and green onion.

Sabroso – Cubanos Sandwich

Pictured above, this Latin American eatery on the corner of 14th Street and 16th Avenue packs a lot of flavour into this ciabatta bun with roasted pork, slaw, peppers, and housemade pickles.
