The beavertail is the Canadian equivalent to the American elephant ear but way better. Don’t get me wrong, fried dough in any form is usually good no matter how you make it but this particular kind of deep-fried deliciousness is off the charts yummy. It’s crispy on the outside yet soft and chewy on the inside and thick enough to handle whatever you throw on it. The dough is stretched into a resemblance of a beavertail (hence the name) then fried up perfectly until it’s ready to be topped with even more unhealthy goodness. I swear a bit of regret comes over me each time I eat it but I always share this so the guilt doesn’t linger too long.
My order is always the same. Straight up nutella. They finish off the tail with a dusting of confectioners sugar before it’s ready to devour. Mmmm Mmmm. Is your mouth-watering yet? Because it should be! I always ask them to cut it up so it’s easier to eat and this way if you are the sharing type, you know exactly how much everyone is getting. Seriously, counting of pieces each person is allotted has happened and you’ll understand why if you’ve ever had one. You gotta protect your share of the beavertail right? I purchase this wonderful creation at Beavertails Inc. located in North Vancouver (Canada) inside the Lonsdale Quay. Check their website for all their locations. My hips are so grateful this is 6 hour drive for me.
