One of the best parts about Saskatoon is running into the Ace Burger Food Truck when you are out and about. I’ve had Ace burgers a few times now and each time was great! The Ace Burger is a cheeseburger with bacon, greens, tomato and red onion nestled in a fresh home style bun along with Siracha mayo. It is one of, if not the best burger available in Saskatoon. Not only can you get it all summer long via the Ace Burger food truck, you can get it at The Congress Beer House all year long.
You can find the Ace Burger food truck at local Saskatoon events like The Fringe, SaskTel Jazz Festival, and daily on the Snack Map app that is downloadable from from the Google Play and Apple app stores for free.
Jordon loves Big Macs but since he started chemotherapy, he can’t keep down a lot of breads. So this easy to make salad means he can enjoy a Big Mac again and I can premake it and have some ready when he is.
