Ottawa Chicken & Rib Festival


Sparks street is home to a few well-known festivals, one of the most notorious being Ottawa’s Chicken & Rib Festival. Regardless of rain or shine, the ribbers will be ready for anything the elements have to throw at them. Sparks street will be converted into a culinary battlefield with blazing grills and plumes of smoke that will paint the sky with its smokey haze. Every chef on the strip will be fiercely competing for the 2013 champion title.

DATE: June 19-23, 2013

**Food Tease’s thoughts: I have been going to this carnivorous event for many years now and one thing I have learned is, you can’t walk down town without be drawn to the smokey goodness that comes from the competing BBQ’s. One year in particular was pretty ridiculous, I went everyday to the festival whether it was for lunch or dinner and some days for both….such good times!! If you are like myself and you would prefer to devour the meat as opposed to all that white bread when ordering a pulled pork sandwich – then just ask them to hold the bread. They will happily fill up to the rim of the sandwich container with some ooey gooey finger licking pulled pork yumminess. It’s a win win situation since you wont be full on some stomach space taking bread and it’ll give you a chance to try another BBQ camp without being completely full.
Be sure to bring some wet-ones or napkins as you will definitely need it and if you don’t then you’re doing it all wrong!

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍

After some incredible snorkeling in Toucari Bay with @wanderlustcaribbean we needed some well deserved substance to refuel our bodies! 🤿🐟🐠🏝
.
The Keep'in It Real restaurant was the ideal eatery for some tasty snapper 🐟 with all its delicious trimmings (local greens, fried plantains, fritters with some rice and beans). 
.
To wash it all down, some local Rum with passion fruit juice 😋 🍹
.
This is what experiencing a new destination should be like...amazing adventures, delicious food and connecting with like-minded enthusiasts!!😍🤗
