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 ‘Little Sparrow’ Cocktail at Gastown’s L’Abattoir

It's giving Shaun Layton’s legendary Avocado Gimlet a run for its money as the most ordered drink on the menu (and for good reason).

You Need To Try Tocador’s Delicious Coconut Fat-Washed ‘Bird Conspiracy’ Cocktail

A delightful coconut and gin cocktail with a delightfully quirky story behind it that involves a rather harrowing flight to Cuba.

You Need To Try Powell Brewery’s Entirely Different ‘Rising Sun’ Jasmine Black Rice & Yuzu Lager

This crisp and palate-cleansing beer is the perfect thirst-quencher for summertime picnics, BBQs or plain ol' day-drinking.

The Delicious Reason Why This Fried Chicken in Kits Tastes So Freaking Familiar

AnnaLena's newest iteration of a menu mainstay is a dead ringer for a fast food staple combo that is no longer what it used to be...
