Live Blogging Chew Chew Fest: Lemonade & BBQ Pork 

Blurt Ed. Note: Food Editor Suzanne Podhaizer is live blogging the Green Mountain Chew Chew Fest today at the Burlington Waterfront.

I've been looking forward to hitting the M-Saigon table, since I adore Vietnamese food and I haven't eaten at the new Shelburne Road restaurant yet (it's near the post office, where Ming's used to be). So, I decided to make their BBQ pork balls on a skewer my third dish of the day.

But first, I snagged some tangy, fresh-squeezed lemonade from the Dismas House table. The lemonade (4 tokens) is a classic CC item, and I make a point of getting it every year. It's cool, has a nice balance of sweetness and acidity, and supports a good cause. I also love their grilled corn with lime.

The BBQ pork consists of three browned balls of ground meat on a skewer (4 tokens), and was offered up with a sweet and slightly spicy sauce. The meat is ground very fine, and is nicely seasoned. These taste good even without the sauce, but even better with it. Can't wait to try their pho!

By the way, I will be posting photos... I've got my camera, but I don't have the cord that connects the camera to my computer (silly me). I'll add 'em later, though!
