Go to Burger Bar.
Two things in Montreal stick out prominently, condo developments and fancy burger joints. It’s hard to find a good and well priced one in the city. But I feel like I’ve found a gem.
The venue had a little of everything. A small and busy second floor terrace overlooking Crescent St, a fully loaded bar and a beautiful HD LED flat screen locked on sports. At first I wanted to sit myself at the bar and watch golf, but I’ve been taking advantage of the off season by talking to people instead.
I was skeptical about the place, burgers are all over and everyone is boasting about their beef. But Burger Bar has one of the best burgers. I know, it’s impossible to say ‘best’ but that day, nobody would be able to impress me more. I ordered the Wild Shroom Burger. Sauteed wild mushrooms overflowing on my plate, caramelized onions, arugula and roasted garlic mayonnaise. It smelled like caramel, melted like chocolate. The bread was soft and lightly toasted, it slowly got soaked in the juices and added a harmonious symphony of taste in every bite. Most importantly the beef was thick and cooked to a medium-well perfection. As you squeezed the burger up to your mouth, you can see the juices flowing out of the reddish beef…
The burger was 12$ and this place is on my top for Watch&Eat this fall. I can’t wait!
Best means, one of the best and in my opinion. To really have the best in anything, it’s about consistency and a general consensus, not the opinion of one, but many.
