Hank's would like to congratulate Chris Tellez of the Espresso Post in Collingwood for taking the cake in this year's Central Regional Barista Championship.
Chris, a dedicated 19 year old barista has worked his tail off and it came through for him yesterday at the Gladstone Hotel where the event was held.
As an Espresso Post Alumni, I am mighty proud of him.
Samuel James (Of Famed Sam James Coffee Bar) was a close second and Mommi from Dark Horse took third.
All excellent baristas, these folks raise the bar all great Ontario baristas strive for.
Today for lunch!
We have a Smoked Turkey and Wild Rice Soup.
The Great Caesar's Salad (ever wonder if he ate it?),
Soba Noodle Salad &
the Pork Rib Confit Salad.
Pork rib confit on a bed of greens with Ontario Sweet Cherry Vinaigrette.
We've also got our Chicken Salad in the composed salad department today.
The Pulled Pork Sandwich from our opening days is back with a huge make-over.
Heritage house smoked pork mixed with Hank's BBQ sauce, topped with an apple radish slaw and sweet potato frites. THAT'S RIGHT - ALL OF THAT IS ON YOUR SANDWICH.
If you eat pork - guess what you're having today?
I've got to get some of that for myself!
See you soon,
P.S. Don't forget to VOTE FOR HANK
