[Editor’s Note: Don’t miss the meaty giveaway!]

Speaking of Two Rivers in my last post, they just opened their first public-facing shop and eatery last month, which includes a traditional butchery, a deli counter and an eat-in grill.

With the butchery, customers can find house-made sausages, dry-aged beef, and hand-tooled cuts, etc. At the take-out deli counter, there’s artisanal salumi and charcuterie. (more…)

The Butcher & Bullock is very close to my office. One time when I was hanging out with friends at the Butcher & Bullock, I discovered the “Build Your Sausage Plate“. You get to choose two sausages crafted in collaboration with Two Rivers Meats + two types of mustard + fries & kimchi. I paid extra for a piece of pretzel on the side because I didn’t think there would be enough food. (Excuse the grainy photo – like the mustard haha – it was an impromptu meetup so I didn’t have my camera with me!)

I chose a bratwurst and a chorizo. The sausages were juicy, flavourful. (more…)

On August 10, the popular Pirate Pak Day returns to White Spot! This is the only day of the year when the adults get to order their own Pirate Pak. For each Pirate Pak sold on that day, White Spot will donate $2.00 to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot will be serving a limited menu on August 10. The Adult Pirate Pak menu has changed slightly this year; you’ll have 5 options: the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Burger, Mediterranean Chicken Burger, Sriracha Portobello Veggie Burger or Sriracha Goat Cheese Turkey Burger. They are served in a pirate boat, and come with bottomless fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold coin”. Not a burger fan? There will also be a selection of other sandwiches, entrees and salads for you to choose from – just order the boat on the side!

The contest is now closed. Thank you for entering. We will draw a name and announce the winner soon!

Wendy’s Canada recently added 3 new chef-inspired flavours to its permanent salad menu: Asian Cashew Salad, BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad and Taco Supremo Salad. To be honest, my guilty pleasure fast food joint is McDonald’s, so I rarely go to Wendy’s. But frequently seeing its commercials on TV and learning about this new line of salads, their food doesn’t look half bad. I was intrigued. That’s why when I was offered to try one of the salads, I decided to go for it.

And I opted for the classic BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad. You may think it’s a safe choice but the use of applewood-smoked bacon caught my eyes. Who can say no to bacon? And look how much bacon you get in the salad:

Wendy's BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

This full size salad was huge! It’s packed with lots of ingredients: roasted corn, tomatoes, shredded cheddar, a blend of lettuce and a whole grilled chicken breast. I was glad to see that the greens were not wilted and everything tasted fresh. There was a barbecue sauce drizzled on top of the bacon pieces, which was a bit sweet. Combining with the BBQ ranch dressing, which also had honey and brown sugar, the sauces on this salad were more on the sweet side for me. Therefore I would recommend starting with a small amount of dressing then add more as needed; otherwise, it may get too sweet and you can’t revert it.

For $8.49 I thought it’s not too bad as a lunch option. Looking at the nutrition details, though, the BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad has higher calorie and sodium count thanks to the addition of bacon. The sacrifice you have to make for something good haha. On the other hand, the Asian Cashew Chicken Salad is lower in calorie and sodium, and with the Asian spicy flair it sounds like a decent choice. I might give it a try some other day.

Updated Aug 16, 2010: Congratulations to Katherine who is the winner of the $25 White Spot gift certificate. A BIG thanks to those who participated. This was our 1st contest so your support was very much appreciated.

On August 18, 2010, White Spot will hold its 3rd annual “Pirate Pak Day“. Although Pirate Pak has always been the Kids Meal option at White Spot, on this special day guests of any age can enjoy a Pirate Pak. Why? Because for the first time ever, White Spot has put together an “Adult Pak” that’s available on August 18 and for just this one day only. Similar to the kids version, the Adult Pak includes one of the following plus coleslaw, French fries, a beverage, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold” coin:

  • Legendary Burger
  • BC Chicken Burger
  • Chargrilled Veggie Burger

What’s Pirate Pak Day?

Through Pirate Pak Day, White Spot is raising money to send kids with serious medical conditions to Zajac Ranch for Children for an unforgettable summer camp experience. So on August 18, $2 from the sale of each Pirate Pak will help fund White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch.
