The annual Lilac Festival is a big deal around Calgary. It's the one day a year where Calgarians take over 4th St, showcase the city's best vendors and musicians, and maybe admire some blooming lilacs they see along the way. Oh, and don't forget the best part, the food.
The Lilac Festival food game is always super strong, and this year was no exception. Don't believe me? Check out some of the tastiest eats from this past Sunday:
Ginger Chicken Poutine // @thedumplinghero
I didn't think poutine could get any tastier until I saw this.
Unicorn Waffle Pops // @wafflepopsyyc
Waffles and cotton candy - a match made in heaven?
Vegan Corndog & Pulled Jackfruit Poutine // @theveggietruck
Who says vegan food is boring? This looks freaking delicious.
Truffle Mac n' Cheese Spring Rolls // @thedumplinghero
Mac n' cheese is already close to perfection, but this takes it to the next level.
Papaya Salad // @foo_calgary
The perfect refreshing treat for this year's warm summer day!
Macaron Doughnut // @yannhautepatisserie
All the crunch of a macaron stuffed inside a warm beignet? Yes please.
Cookie Dough Burritos // @familydough
I knew my life was missing something, and this was it.
