You Gotta Eat at Kekuli Cafe

9/7/2012

They are known throughout the Okanagan for their pulled pork, but soon Kekuli Cafe will be known all over North America.

The restaurant will be featured on the hit Food Network show You Gotta Eat Here.

It's the Canadian version of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Owner is Sharon Bond-Hogg who says she still isn't positive on who nominated the restaurant.

"Someone sent in a recommendation.  I'm sure there has been a few people who have done it, but they told me one of the names was Tourism BC.  I was like wow cool.  I sit on the board with Aboriginal Tourism BC and Thompson- Okanagan so maybe someone said something and that's how it started."

The eatery is famous for pulled pork Indian tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, pulled pork poutine, and bannock.

The show is expected to air early next year, with host John Catucci telling viewers they ``gotta eat'' at the Kekuli Cafe.

The restaurant was closed on Thursday but opened up on Friday so the show could film patrons expressing how much they love Kekuli Cafe.
