EAT: “PULL’D” @ THE EX

My first trip this year to Toronto’s Canadian National Exhibition, also known as The EX or the CNE, was geared around seeing the great Chubby Checker live at Bandshell Park – and what fun that was. Of course before we found good sight lines for the show in our comfy $12 folding chairs, my mom and I took in the famous Food Building from corner to corner. Immediately after entering the sweet-smelling structure filled with foreign, Canadian, and one-of-a-kind food vendors, I spotted Pull’D, and knew that their “Jack’d” special was the choice for me. IMG_8460

While they had several delelctable options including a classic pulled pork sandwich on a fresh ciabatta bun, I opted for the combination of breakfast and dinner in a stack of 3 fluffy red velvet pancakes with their pulled pork in between. The mound was doused – and I would have preferred drenched to be honest – in Jack Daniels infused maple syrup, the key flavour factor in me giving this plate a 10/10.

The cakes were definitely more pink than red, but the slight colour variation did not change their flavour because they were delicious, and I have a bad yet good feeling that I’ll be back for seconds. When I do return, I will remember to ask for extra-and-then-some syrup, find a knife (so necessary!)  and will slowly savour each and every bite yet again – thank you, CNE.
