I was in Ottawa last week and was flying home Saturday so of course with it being October 1st we had to begin our 2016 Porktoberfest consumption as soon as I landed.
We'd both checked out the website and both agreed to start at The Old Triangle and tackle the "Holy Schnitzel."
Comprised of a 5 spice seasoned 5oz. pork tenderloin, hand breaded then fried to crispy schnitzel perfection. Topped with Maple glazed PEI bacon, vinaigrette style cabbage slaw, artisan greens, chipotle-apple-red pepper mayo and a balsamic-cranberry BBQ sauce all on a toasted ciabatta bun.
So with deep fried pork plus bacon, I knew I was in for a treat. It didn't disappoint.
The tenderloin was lightly breaded and very tender, the maple bacon was a treat and went very well with the BBQ sauce which was sweet and tangy. My only disappointment was the fact that my wife and I were splitting it so I only got 1/2, well close to 2/3's.
If you are in the Charlottetown area and looking to try out a Porktoberfest creation I'd highly recommend the Old Triangle. At $15.50 including a side it is a great deal and an awesome sammich.
First victim of @Porktoberfest went down earlier today. "Holy Schnitzel" from @OldTrianglePEI. Pretty good start. #PEIPorktoberfest pic.twitter.com/42aJ3Jtq9U— Rod Gallant (@Rod_Gallant) October 1, 2016
