Good food is something that should be shared with friends. I was invited by @TheMarcSmith to sample Earls #thiscallsforribs promotion, along with @br_webb, @foodgays, @cathybrowne, @christameister and @diannechow. I couldn’t think of a better group of people to share this experience with. We all know each other and it was great to catch up and eat and drink together again.
The ribs dish at Earl’s is a customer favourite and is one the chain does very well. The ribs are slow roasted for 6-8 hours resulting in meat that is tender and comes off the bones effortlessly. The ribs are then coated in the most delicious BBQ sauce and grilled.
For a limited time, you can try a full rack of ribs and two delicious side dishes for only $25. My dish came with coleslaw and the most delicious warm potato salad you’ve ever tasted. – baked potato, sour cream, bacon and chives are only a few things that make this salad a winner. It was so good I had seconds.
But ribs aren’t the only thing that’s going on at Earls right now. We had a chance to taste some of Earls new and innovating cocktails. Such as the Cabin Fever – Crown Royal, tawny port, ginger, pineapple, fresh lemon, and bitters over ice. Yes, that is a pinecone in my drink.
The Mad Hatter – a tea infused concoction with pear, kaffir lime syrup, and vodka. The presentation is wonderful – the cocktail comes in a steaming tea pot. It also tastes amazing.
If cocktails aren’t your cup of tea, Earls has a great selection of craft and local beers, like the Gypsy Tears Red Ale from Parallel 49 Brewery.
Also for a limited time, Earls is featuring a key lime pie that is too good to pass out. It’s a must to end your meal with.
