Le Gourmet Burger

As a self-proclaimed burger aficionado, I’ve been searching Montreal high and low for a great burger. Have I finally found what I’ve been longing for? Amidst the popular (but mediocre) restaurants on Bishop, Le Gourmet Burger is easily overlooked, but what lies within its charming interior is nothing short of pure bliss.

Each Burger (beef, chicken, veggie) is served on a warm, toasty brioche bun and garnished with the standard lettuce, tomatoes and caramelized onions. Cheese can be added to the burger for an additional $1.00-$4.00 depending on what you fancy. Supplementary toppings cost between $1.00-$5.00 each and range from guacamole to eggplants tahini to the pretentious fois gras. Help yourself to the variety of condiments, both classic and bold, available at the counter. The patty is thick and juicy, and the meat to bun ratio of the burger is spot on.  There’s just enough bun and just enough meat to create a harmonious balance, and together with your added toppings it creates magic in your mouth. The burger is incredibly scrumptious.  It’s probably one of the best burgers I’ve had, EVER.

The Sweet Potato Fries are an absolute MUST. Typically, complementary fries are not meant to outshine the burger itself, however these sweet potato fries can really hold their own.  Its crisp and salty exterior beautifully complements its sweet and tender core.  They are perfection. Absolutely delicious!

Look no further for a great burger! It’s a wonderful and incomparable alternative to fast food burgers - it won’t event break the budget! If you’re ever around the area, skip the many bland restaurants and treat yourself and your taste buds to a little piece of heaven!

So what kind of burger did you get? And if I can be so bold as to ask, how much did it cost?

I always get the beef burger, with a slice of monterey jack cheese and grilled mushrooms - $8.00 tax included
I also never leave without having the sweet potato fries - $3.00 tax included
