The take-out window at Edible Canada at Granville Island (1596 Johnston Street) opened Friday (May 18), and this year’s seasonal menu is dedicated to bacon.
“Coast to Coast—A Canadian Tribute to Bacon” will feature dishes and ingredients from across the country using 100 percent Canadian bacon. The menu includes a West Coast Cobb salad ($10) with bacon lardons, heirloom tomatoes, Quebec blue cheese, and smoked salmon; bacon and duck rillettes poutine ($8.50) with Canadian cheese curds and caramelized onions; Two Rivers all-beef and bacon whistle dog ($8) with smoked Canadian cheddar, fried onions, and bacon jam; a BLLT ($12), which is a bacon, lettuce, lobster, and tomato sandwich; crispy fish and bacon tacos ($7) with Ontario pickerel, apple radish slaw, and spicy mango; and Box o’ Bacon ($8), which includes six strips of pepper candied bacon with a rye chocolate ganache dipping sauce.
A bacon-themed dessert menu includes a bacon cinnamon sticky bun ($5) from Gastown’s Cadeaux Bakery, chocolate-bacon gelato from Bella Gelateria ($5.50), and “To Die For” bacon banana bread with whipped maple butter ($6).
The “Coast to Coast—A Canadian Tribute to Bacon” menu will be available all summer at Edible Canada’s take-out window only, which is only daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
