Local Spots to Enjoy Burger Week

You burger lovers have reason to celebrate because this Wednesday, May 28 through Saturday the 31st is being designated Burger Week here in Toronto. More like a long weekend than a week, but during that 4 day period, restaurants across the city will offer a special $5 burger.

Each restaurant has a different offering, so try them all! The Burger Week website lists all the participating restaurants and their $5 burgers. The local spots which are offering $5 burgers are The Lakeview, Rock Lobster and Queen West spots The Gladstone and County General.

Rock Lobster’s burger fits the brand as it’s a Surf & Turf Burger: Kobe beef, spicy carrot cabbage slaw, and grilled shrimp. Sounds delicious!

The Lakeview’s burger is also appropriate for this popular comfort-food emporium. It’s called The Pickled Piper: Chuck patty with chili mayo and chopped dill pickle relish, and garnished with a deep-fried pickle.

The festival culminates with a party at Fort York called Burger Day at which the participating restaurants will offer their special burger as a slider. Burger Day is Sunday June 1st and tickets cost $20 and sliders cost $3 each.

Happy eating!
