YEG’s Little Miss Andrea’s 3 Favourite Local Pork Dishes

Sharman - Thursday, August 6, 2015

Edmonton food and lifestyle blogger Little Miss Andrea may be pint-sized, but the girl has an appetite, and she certainly knows her way around Edmonton’s food scene. 

I asked Little Miss Andrea to share her three favourite Alberta pork dishes that were being served up in Edmonton. In no particular order – she picked these three locally sourced and prepared dishes featuring Alberta pork:

Braised Bacon at Tzin

1. Braised Bacon at Tzin Wine & Tapas Bar

Chef Corey McGuire of Tzin uses Irving Farms bacon to create this sweet and savoury dish incorporating maple balsamic apple compote, apple mayonnaise, crostini, and topped with a calvados gastrique. It has been on the menu for quite some time now, possibly because Chef McGuire may get take some heat if he ever tried to take it off the menu. 

Drift Food Truck - Pork Belly Sandwich

2. Pork Belly Sandwich from Drift Food Truck

One of the first food trucks to hit the scene – Kara and Nevin’s Drift Food Truck signature dish helped make pork belly trendy in Edmonton.  Topped with pickled carrot & daikon, cilantro & chili mayo, this $8 Alberta pork belly sandwich is worth waiting in line for. 

rosti puerco

3. Rosti -Puerco at Rostizado

Andrea is one of many in love with the Rosti-Puerco at Rostizado. Chef Edgar serves up slow-roasted Four Whistle Farms Alberta pork at Rostizado either solo, or accompanied by chicken. Tender and juicy – the slow roasted pork can quickly disappear from their branded platters


Stay tuned for more of Edmonton’s social media darlings to share their favourite Alberta pork dishes around town.
