Is The Best Burger In Vancouver At Hawksworth?

IMG_6354

by Andrew Morrison | Oh, it’s very close. This sublime fellow is a fat bastard of ground tenderloin, ribeye, and chuck flavoured with onion, garlic, and long peppercorns. It’s mounted with double smoked bacon, aged Canadian cheddar, a perfect onion ring, crisp lettuce, and fresh tomato. The sesame seed bun sustains quite a bit of squeezing and juice, and it comes generously smeared with an incredibly tasty ketchup-based house sauce that includes licks of sweet smoked paprika, ancho chilies, herbs de provence, Worchestershire sauce, brown sugar. With a side of hot and crisp-edged frites served with mayo, it weighs in at a hefty $19 and is absolutely in contention despite the high price tag (for a burger). Also in the running for the totally subjective title are the burgers of currency at Pourhouse, Mamie Taylor’s, The Oakwood (the new one), Cannibal Cafe, and Campagnolo Upstairs. Not in the running are the ghost burgers of gluttonies past at Feenie’s, DB Bistro Moderne, Au Petit Chavignol, and Fray. If basic is your bag, try Save On Meats or the internet hype machine known as Hamburger $2.85.

  1. *drooling* Yet I am amazed La Brasserie’s delicious monster of a burger didn’t get a mention here, it tops my personal subjective burger-podium! Although in fairness I haven’t tried all those on this list, and will get to work on that straight away.

You Need To Try the Emerald City Cocktail at Gastown’s Pourhouse

This apple-garnished, mule-inspired looker combines classic autumnal flavours like ginger and cinnamon with nutty Fino sherry.

Where to Sip the Inspired, ‘Nacho Medicine’ Cocktail on a Cold Vancouver Day

This delicious take on Sam Ross' famous "Penicillin" cocktail is a worthy smoke show. Best enjoyed with rain.

You Need to Try “The Broken Compass” in Chinatown

The seasonal cocktail at The Keefer Bar is tiki-inspired without being sweet and summery. Think blended Scotch, coconut and Amaro.
