Haugen’s Chicken and Ribs Barbeque – September 2, 2012

After spending the day, in picturesque Port Perry, we were hungry!!

We had noticed a place called Haugen’s Chicken & Ribs Barbeque, on our way to Port Perry, so we decided to go back the way we came to check it out. When we got there, we noticed a sign that said Haugen’s was featured on The Food Network’s ‘You Gotta Eat Here’. My hubby and I looked at each other and chuckled, because in the car, we were saying this place sounded familiar LOL

The menu wasn’t very big…BONUS. But, we were there for their specialty anyway, which is roasted chicken and ribs. The ribs fell off the bone and the sauce was a good combination of sweet and savoury. The chicken was roasted perfectly, and not as salty as Swiss Chalet, which was a bonus for me. You also got an abundance of fresh cut fries, and a dipping sauce that was their own tomato sauce concoction. The waitress told us, people either love or hate the dipping sauce. It just wasn’t for us, so we didn’t use it. If they offered a secondary dipping option similar to Swiss Chalet’s, that would be great, but alas they do not. All in all it was a very filling meal which gave us leftovers, and if we’re ever in the area again, we’d go back 🙂

Toronto Rotary Ribfest – July 1, 2012

On Canada Day, we met up with friends at the Ribfest, and my GOD was it ever hot!! But, we donned our hats, and took to the lines!! We had gone earlier then usual, so the lines weren’t too bad, though it got crowded pretty quickly.

We started at the Bibb’s BBQ stand first, and to me, it was the best. To me, sauce is important when it comes to ribs, and they had the best sauce. It was the perfect combination of sweet, tang and spice. The ribs themselves had a nice charr on them, yet fell off the bone, and I could’ve eaten WAY more LOL

We also tried ribs from Bad Wolf Kansas City BBQ, and they were pretty good as well. They weren’t as charred, but still fell off the bone…what more can a gal ask for right?! 🙂

We ended with a pulled pork sandwich from Sticky Fingers BBQ & Company, which was really good as well!! The sauce complimented the pulled pork nicely, and it almost melted it my mouth – just how I like it 😀

If you love ribs and being outdoors, even though it was sweltering hot, then you should check out the Ribfest next year. You can check out the Ribfest in Mississauga, as that’s coming up, later in July as well.
