It was recently brought to our attention that May has been dubbed National Hamburger Month, so in the name of research, we spent the month looking for our favourites burgs in the city. We love a good eat on the fourth floor and (almost) nothing can beat an all-star burger. If you have a craving, head to one of these spots.
Sustainable ingredients, quality flavour
This casual, cozy resto has two excellent burgers on their menu (along with some other mouth-watering, scrumptious items like the curry club wrap). Their burgers are made with certified organic beef, and topped with fabulous condiments like brie, spinach and roasted red peppers.
South St. Burger Co.
Very few quick-service resto’s can match up to the greatness that comes out of the kitchen at South St. Starting with their great service, their epic burgers are incomparable simply because of the huge variety of toppings available: chipotle BBQ sauce, olives, blue cheese, mango chutney and spicy ketchup are a few of our faves.
Located off the beaten path (at Queen and Coxwell), The Burger’s Priest offers simple hamburgers with a twist. To be a true connoisseur of their burgs, order from the secret menu. Try the newest concoction, Judgment Day, in honour of the Rapture. On your trip, expect fresh ground beef, a soft bun and simple, classic toppings, all griddled to perfection.
The Harbord Room, referred to by NOW magazine as “the hottest bite in town”, sure knows how to cook a burger. The naturally-raised beef burger is a culinary dream. Seriously, just ask this guy. Served on a yummy Fred’s Bread egg bun, the combination between the beef, sharp cheddar and caramelized onions are sure to please every single one of your taste buds.
Known for it’s tapas-style menu, Origin has one of the greatest burgs we’ve tried yet. This tasty bite is crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, and is brilliantly contrasted with creamy avocado, smoked mayo and arugula. Mmm-mmm, good.
Best BBQ around town. Get the ‘animal burger’. T
wo mustard seared 3 oz. patties, American cheese, sauce, lettuce, pickles, caramelized onion. Apparently as good as an In-n-Out
, if that’s your thing. It’s definitely ours.
So, whether you are into quirky toppings, holy hamburgers, or gourmet renditions of this American classic, we sure hope you enjoy your next trip to any of these resto’s for a piece of happiness in a bun. Got a beef with one of our choices for best? Tweet us what you think is better (@rockitpromo).
