WINTERLICIOUS 2017: …And then we ate Elvis for dessert!

So, we’re hangin’ out at Lisa Marie, this funkalicious food palace on Queen St West. Man, last time was here, I totally went to town on some meatballs that were so big, I could barely fit ‘em in my mouth! This place is super-legit, so I knew for Winterlicious, they’d be doing it up right…and they definitely didn’t disappoint!

They call these Alabama Tailgaters, and they party harder than a Buffalo Bills fan, bro! What we’ve got here is some beef tenderloin, stuffed with cheese and kim chi, and then wrapped in bacon, son! The beef is nice and tender, the bacon is crispalicious, and then you’ve got these righteous green beans swimming in chili sauce underneath. Pretty sure I could slam seven of these!!!

But the star of the show was the house-smoked ribs. The entire Triple B crew went with the pig bones, and they were on point. Nice, smoky flavour, meat was nice and tender…and then you got a bit of coleslaw and cornbread on the side. At this point, I figured out that the Winterlicious menu does not give you full-sized portions. I mean, this is not much of a dessert, really:

But lemme tell ya, brother, what it lacks in size, it more than makes up in flavour! They call this dish The Elvis, and it’s got brioche French toast, brown-sugar bananas—and bananas are good—peanut butter, whipped cream, and then a little piece of candied bacon on top. It’s like you’re caught in a trap, and you can’t break out, because you’re eating Elvis baby!!!!
