It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s…Superweiner!

By day, this sausage is a mild-mannered Toronto Star reporter, but during Winterlicious, he puts on a cape and tights and becomes Superweiner!

OK, what we’ve got here is a jalapeno cheese-curd smokie, topped with some English-style South Asian pickled vegetables, and a side of goofy oversized crackers. (Dude, I coulda used some Ruffles or some Doritos!) You definitely get the oozy cheese coming out of the sausage, but if there’s any jalapeno here, it’s a very subtle touch. If anything, this dish is overwhelmed by the pickled veg on top, though it’s still got a nice chew. But dude, who cuts a hot dog in half!? You expect me to share it with someone? Pretty sure I could eat six of these, bro!

Of course, every super hero has a sidekick, and over at Bannock, Superweiner’s sidekick is moonshine panna cotta. They actually put real shine in this albino Jello, and you can even taste the booze. The syrupy apples and raisins add a nice saucy touch, but the white lightnin’ is what makes it! I wouldn’t say I was drunk or anything, but I did fall down the escalator at The Bay afterwards. (Hey, I was probably still buzzed after shot-gunning 22 Coors Lights the night before!!!)
