The Miss Piggy and The Rhino Buster

Michelle from The Sweet Escape with our decadent donut-sandwich.

This afternoon we made a trip to The Sweet Escape in the Distillery to try something that could be featured on This Is Why You’re Fat. These two beautiful sandwiches are a marriage of The Sweet Escape’s maple bacon donut and Buster Rhino BBQ‘s pulled pork and beef brisket.

This was the pulled pork sandwich, which we called “The Miss Piggy.” Our friend Mike ordered this one and he said that it was good but he couldn’t finish it on his own.

And this was ours: Beef brisket and barbecue sauce between two maple bacon donuts. We called it “The Rhino Buster.” It was actually really good. I was expecting to be slightly disgusted by it, but it was just the right amount of sweet, balanced nicely with the saucy smokey brisket and crunchy bacon. We cleaned our plate.

The Sweet Escape made these two sandwiches exclusively for our curious stomachs, but they say that they’re thinking of putting it on the menu. If they did, would you try one?

    Fantastic shots. Thanks for accompanying me on this food adventure of equal parts joy, curiosity and shame. I was half expecting to see a photo of my mug unsuccesfully trying to descretly wipe the delicious saucy evidence from the corners of my mouth. I reckon those photos are being held back for future use when the Miss Piggy & Rhino Buster become Toronto classics. I think we need a round two when the heart has time to recover so we can test if pickles take it to the next level.
