So, my hubby and I decided to head down to the festival, for a change of scenery and for some food!! It was a super sunny, gorgeous day out, and we had a great time strolling along the waterfront 🙂
There were beautiful ships out on the lake, which made for some great scenery and photography, while we walked and ate 🙂
We also came down for, the East Coast inspired food, and we weren’t disappointed. We first tried the ‘Fish Tip & Fries’, and the fish was super nummy!! The batter was so thin, and it didn’t overpower the fish at all. We actually just squeezed the lemon over the fish, and ate it like that, since it was so flavourful – it didn’t need the tartar sauce. The fries were the frozen kind, which I forgive, because the fish made up for it in spades 🙂
We then tried out the Lobster Roll, they were offering there too. I hadn’t had one, since I vacationed on the East Coast, in my teen years. It also didn’t disappoint. There was a touch of mayo, but it was ALL lobster, and it was sweet and moist – just like it should be 🙂
A little while later we were surprised by a free sampling of Smoke’s Poutinerie…HELLO!! It was buffet style, so you could make your own poutine concoction. So, I put their famous pulled pork and gravy over their fresh cut fries and cheese curds. Funny thing is, we found out about them a couple weeks ago, on a show called EAT ST. – on The Food Network. We were intrigued by them, and with good reason!! We’re now hooked and will be patroning their store front in the near future. The pulled pork was slightly sweet and perfectly cooked – which was a great compliment to their gravy. If you ever check them out, you won’t be disappointed!! 🙂
All in all, it was a great day and festival. We got to walk off, the scrumptious food we ate, by the waterfront. And enjoyed walking through all the vendors, that were there selling their beautiful wares. If you choose to go to the festival next year, I’m sure you’ll have a great time too!!
Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂
