The biggest, best sandwich in Windsor #FoodPornFriday

I think there are plenty of Windsorites that can identify this #FoodPornFriday post. Even if they don't know that it's Bill's Big Boy with a side of Dillon Fries, they probably know it comes from Bubi's Awesome Eats.

Bubi's is one of those places you bring your out of town friends when they come to Windsor. They have been featured on You've Gotta Eat Here and for good reason. They have unique fantastic food that's "Garlicky Good!"

This massive sandwich has bacon, ham, turkey, gyro meat, lettuce, tons of cheese and Bubi's Sauce speared between Bubi' fresh made Garlick'd Rye bread. It's one of the best sandwiches in the area and one of the best I've had, ever. 

One of my favourite things to do in the summer is sit on Bubi's patio with a pint of Barking Squirrel and one of these massive sandwiches.

The best thing I've ever eaten at Jack's Gastropub #FoodPornFriday

This isn't the first time I've featured Jack's Gastropub for #FoodPornFriday and I'm sure it won't be the last. Jack's is our favourite place to eat. The only thing that stops us from going there more often is the fact it's out in Kingsville and not here in Windsor.

I had to share this particular meal this week because it was the best thing I've ever eaten at Jack's. If you follow me on social media you must realize that is saying a lot. We love Jack's, I don't think I've ever had a bad meal and I've had many amazing ones. This dish topped all of them. 

What you see here is Fried Chicken Scaloppine: Cornflake breaded chicken cutlet, summer potato salad, grilled marinated tomato, warm biscuit and sausage gravy. 

Now Jack's changes their menu every season, so I suggest you head out there before this deslish dish disappears. Personally we've already booked a table for next Saturday.

European Market has awesome pre-made food at a great price. #FoodPornFriday

The European Market on Walker has been one of our favourite places to go for years. They have an amazing deli counter, sell a wide variety of imported foodstuffs that you can't get anywhere else and they have a great hot food counter.  This is why I was very happy to see they were opening a new, larger location that's closer to home (and to my work). 

The new place is huge and is located at 6415 Tecumseh Rd. East (was a rather terrible all you can eat sushi place before). What I really like at the new place is that the hot food counter is even bigger and has more items. There are now three kinds of pirogi, rice balls, a couple different stews, crepes. turkey and pork schnitzel, three different types of sausage, vegetables, roast potatoes and a whole lot more.

What really made me want to talk about the European Market for #FoodPornFriday is the price. Look at that picture up there: in it you can see eight dumplings, a medium sausage and cabbage, two spinach and ricotta crepes, eighteen cheddar cheese pierogi, four mushroom and sauerkraut pirogi, a medium bacon noodle thing (it's awesome and one of our favourites but I can't remember exactly what it's called), and finally three rice balls. How much do you think that cost me? 


Yes $36.50, for everything you see here. It was too much food for us and still cheaper than pretty much every other take-out meal we've had recently. This provided dinner for two adults and two kids and then lunch for all four of us the next day. Even more impressive is the fact that the food is great. The European Market has some of the best pirogi in the city. The sausage and cabbage is perfect for us as I love the sausage and my wife loves the cabbage. The rice balls were amazing (first time trying those). The only thing we weren't impressed by were the crepes.

So if you are looking for something different for lunch or dinner, I strongly recommend checking out either of the European Market's locations.
