Pig BBQ Joint

Thanks to a night of Triple D marathon – episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives – I was determined to get my hands dirty and face smeared with BBQ sauce. With that motive in mind, I headed into Victoria Island for Pig BBQ Joint’s pulled pork sandwich, which was known to be one of the best pulled porks in town.

Pulled Pork Sandwich

The barbecue pulled pork was meaty and tender with a deliciously addictive smoky taste. I enjoyed every bite with Pig BBQ Joint’s own barbeque sauce, which was sweet and rich in flavour. This definitely eased my craving for a succulent pulled pork sandwich but I will continue to scout for pulled pork sandwiches to find out which I like best.

Pork Tenderloin Sandwich with apple, Apple Wood cheddar and honey mustard

Oliver had his eyes on the pork tenderloin sandwich with apple, Apple Wood cheddar and honey mustard, and crispy fried mac & cheese. The tenderloin wasn’t as tender as the pulled pork, probably because wasn’t slow-cooked, but without a doubt, it was still very toothsome and flavorful. The spread of honey mustard and slices of apple in-between kept the sandwich less hefty and the flavours well balanced. And, needless to say, the melted cheese was a delectable plus.

Crispy fried Mac & Cheese

If the crispy fried mac & cheese isn’t a guilty pleasure, I don’t know what is! The mac & cheese had this textural perfection, a thin yet crispy outer crust that protects the moist and creamy macaroni within. We both love this ingenious idea, however, we agreed that the mac & cheese fell short in the cheese section. ‘Less is more’ generally holds true with one exception, cheese.

At the end of the day, Oliver and I left Victoria with our stomachs full and satisfied. With ribs and beef brisket sandwiches on the menu, I wouldn’t mind revisiting Pig BBQ Joint again for more barbeque.
