With these warmer and longer days, it’s time to relax, meet with friends and family and grab a burger downtown!
That ubiquitous summer meal – juicy beef patties finished with the simplest of toppings or dressed up to satisfy the cravings of the gourmet.
We visited five local restaurants and asked them to present us with their favourite burger. Here are FIVE BURGERS TO TRY this season!
1 – The Pink Bicycle – “Blue Flame Beef Burger
The original gourmet: named after the dragster car of the 70’s “The Blue Flame.” Spicy chilli mayo, blue cheese, and Springford Farms beef on a Bond Bonds bun. Using all natural, locally sourced ingredients, it’s the original gourmet burger joint in town, going strong for over 6 years.
2 – Big Wheel – “Bacon Cheeseburger”
The classic Canadian cheeseburger: in-house ground organic hormone-free and antibiotic-free beef patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles and secret sauce on a lightly toasted locally-made bun. “Fast food” that’s actually “real food.” On Tuesdays, those in uniform get 15% off! www.bigwheelburger.com
3 – DeadBeetz food truck – “The Beatrice beef burger”
Take out delight: local grass- fed beef patty from Carnivore meats, with Vancouver Island truck-made sauce, lettuce, real cheddar, truck-made pickled beets, and locally made buns. The exceptional quality and to-die-for harmony of flavours will have you coming back! Follow on Facebook, Twitter or get the Street Food App to find the daily location of the truck. www.deadbeetz.com
4 – Bin 4 – “Pre-Season Favorite”
Guaranteed gourmet winner: locally and ethically sourced antibiotic-free and hormone-free beef, Fraser Valley back bacon, house-made roasted jalapeno guacamole, Parmigiano cheese, roasted garlic aioli, and butter lettuce on bruschetta. Pair it with the big chunky onion rings! After 9pm all burgers are half price with the purchase of a drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic! www.bin4burgerlounge.com
5 – John’s Place – “The Black n Blue Burger”
Flavor explosion at iconic local spot: 6oz house-made beef patty grilled with melted Danish Rosenborg blue cheese and thick sliced Applewood bacon on a fresh Kaiser bun with BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato and mayo.
