Mr. Lew's Great Burger Search

Trucks spotted at:

Monkland Festival

Visit:  August 22, 2014

As the temperature dips and the desire to remain outside dwindles away, we can take that one moment to look back on the past few months.  The summer was a time where we could literally stay outside forever without any care in the world.  When you’re outside, what’s better than our food truck scene to compliment the nice weather.

5700 Cote-des-Neiges
Plaza Cote-des-Neiges
Montréal, Québec

Bus:  STM 92, 160, 165, 435

Visit:  September 19, 2014

When you’re on the run and you want something quick, there are a lot of places that can satisfy that requirement.  There are also those times where you just know where you want and again, there are places for that.  In the light of this search, there are those moments where I end up places that I didn’t know I would be there when the day started.  That’s how I ended up at Le Bistro at Plaza Cote-des-Neiges.

Pizza is something that brings a lot of people together.  I can’t count the number of weeks where my family bonded over pizza back in the day.  These days, pizza is something that brings a lot of people together.  This time around, our family gathered at Québec Déli.

3860 Ontario E.
Montréal, Québec

Bus:  STM 125, 139

Visit:  September 10, 2014

Over ten years ago, Ontario street was a big part of my life and not because I really wanted it to be.  I never thought much of the stretch I was part of and couldn’t really feel any pride about it.  When you start exploring further, you’ll know that Ontario is more than what its reputation is and there are nicer places out there.  Even with that, there are still those little neighborhood gems like La Pataterie.

Whenever you consult a list of this city’s best burgers, there is always a place that makes an appearance.  Known for their oddly shaped burger patties and their over 50 years of serving this wonderful city, Mr. Steer has been an icon of Sainte-Catherine street.  For the first time in almost 5 years, I made my return to truly assess its impact on the iconic burger.

At this moment, the school year is well underway and everyone is back doing what they do best or so I would hope.  If you put yourself in the shoes of the young people who have just started cegep, you wonder where they are getting their food.  Near most cegeps, there are places that everyone knows about and they’re always nearby.  A place like that is La Roulotte in Sainte-Geneviève.

Visit:  August 4, 2014

Over the last few years, I’ve been always keen on finding anything related to dessert.  Sometimes, these places just fall on your lap when you least expect it.  These are the places that no one ever hears about, but just pops up out of nowhere and then, you hear about them all over the place.  That is the case with the relative upstart, Le Painnamou.

Let’s face it, 24 hours in a day just isn’t enough.  As we get older and much busier, we find it hard to cram all our responsibilities into that finite amount of time.  As we get older, our routines adjust to our biological clocks and for that, we need places to eat that respect that little quirk.  Luckily, there are 24 hour restaurants that offer so much at all times of the day and one of those places is called Chez La Mère.

Métro:  De L’Église
Bus:  STM 37, 58, 61

Visit:  August 4, 2014

The last 5 years of going out to try restaurants has been an eye opening experience.  I’ve had a chance to try so many things I wouldn’t normally eat.  Over that time, there was one type of cuisine I haven’t had the chance to do and that was Mexican.  Well, with a visit to El Sabor de Mexico, we can check another type of cuisine off that long list.

If you live or intend on visiting Montréal, there is a list of things that you have to experience.  Some people know this place as that big orange sphere, while others know it as one of the most iconic places to eat on the entire island.  The complete Montréal experience isn’t complete without a visit to Orange Gibeau Julep.

Over the last few years, when it came to burgers, I visited a lot of places that didn’t quite specialize in that.  Some people might think that you only go to burger places for burgers and the same for pizza.  With that being said, I decided to go back to a place that housed one of my previous burgers to take on what’s in their name.  That place is a Verdun staple known as Woodland Pizza.

Verdun has become one of the places to be when it comes to eating.  The stretch in question is Wellington and there are restaurants there up the wazoo.  If you want to make an impact and get noticed in this city, you go to where the action is.  For this still young pub known as Balconville, Verdun is the place to be.

Fast food courts aren’t really popular when it comes to writing about them.  There’s no better way to turn off your audience, but there are some things that you can’t ignore.  If you’re willing to look, there are certain dishes that might seem cheaper, but are of a better quality than other places.  One of those instances can be found at Kojax Souflaki.

If you spent any amount of time in the city of Montréal, you’ll notice that everyone is crazy about one thing and that’s beer.  Well, it’s probably not just this city, as popular culture has beer coursing through its veins.  Taking advantage of the popularity of this very attractive liquid and a prominent real estate vacancy, Toronto’s Bier Markt has settled into our city.

Visit:  July 9, 2014

In 2009, I went on a search for great burgers in the city I love.  Early on along the way, I obviously started with the places with the best reputations.  Some of those places came up short, while others surpassed what my expectations were at the time.  I’ve been meaning to get to some of those places again and I finally had the chance.  After almost 5 years, I have returned to L’Anecdote.
