Porking it Out at Sabor Divino
|Suckling Pig from Sabor Divino Edmonton's tweet
Sabor Divino is located in the Boardwalk area of downtown Edmonton. Upon arriving for our reservation at 8:30 pm the restaurant was fairly busy. I was also pleasantly surprised to hear a live pianist entertaining guests. It just so happened that on the night that we visited, Sabor Divino was a few days into their first annual Porkfest (Oct. 15 - Nov. 17)! With the suckling pig in mind, of course we had to try their Porkfest menu. In the end, with the exception of our appetizer and desserts both of our mains came from the Porkfest menu.

|Check out the crispy skin on this chunk of pork that I had for my main!
This is the oven roasted suckling pig, home fries, salad and accompanied with dipping sauce ($32)
|Temptation size of Tiramisu and made in house. I would say that this would be the deluxe
version of tiramisus as it had espresso coffee, coffee liqueur, Bailey's and Frangelico.
|There is also a semi-private dining area near one side of the restaurant.
For most of the night there was a private party there with about 10-12 people.
They ordered an entire suckling pig to share between them!
So, there you have it! Our fulfilling first meal at Sabor Divino filled with pork goodness and divine desserts. If you want to partake in some of the amazing local food (& pork!) that we ate that night, their PorkFest runs until November 17, 2012!
On our next visit to Sabor Divino we would certainly want to try their regular menu as I've heard that they do some amazing seafood! Too bad we missed out on their Seafood Fest back in August/September! Christian Mena, co-owns the restaurant with his long time friend Chef Lino. Christian also talked so highly of their Chilean Carica Fruit dessert that I will have to try it on my next visit.
