The 10 most outrageous food coming to the CNE

Food coming to the CNE this year give the people what they want: gold, rainbows, ramen, Cheetos and of course, lots and lots of deep-frying. Though the priciest item this year may top out at a hundred bucks, the best thing about the CNE has always been that there are so many options. If you don’t want to go big ,you don’t have to go home.

Here’s the most outrageous food coming to the CNE for 2018.

$100 Gold Burger

A brioche bun covered in 24-karat gold is the crowning glory of this burger already fit for a king, with two beef patties, cheese, smashed avocado, onion rings, and of course bacon (seeing as this offering comes from Bacon Nation).

Dutch “Luv” Puffs

These puffs are actually decked-out versions of Dutch poffertjes, fluffy little pancakes about the size of a loonie. They’re normally topped with nothing more than butter and powdered sugar, but here they get taken to the next level with condensed milk, shaved coconut and pineapple.

Korean Fried Frog Legs

There’s nothing swampy about this rendition of frog legs with a sticky sauce. The sweet and spicy blend has the meat of this amphibian tasting just as juicy as any Korean fried chicken.

Eat the bowl too with this take on a classic, creamy fettuccine alfredo inside a bread bowl from Eat My Bowls.
