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.

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.

Most of us have fond memories of our neighborhoods. These are the places where we grew up and became the people we are today. Our neighborhoods had everything we needed and that satisfied us. But, there are some neighborhood places that are a little bit better than what we had and one of those is Piquillo.

Every city has their fine dining options and the restaurants that pattern themselves after that formula. These days, you don’t have to put on a tie to eat at these places and that opens up a world of possibilities for people like me. The place that you definitely need to keep an eye on in the city of Ottawa is Absinthe Cafe.
The summer is half done and there’s only one month until the regular routine is back. July is always a month of decompression and mandatory sleeping for me. This year was no different. With all that time dedicated to doing nothing, there’s one thing that doesn’t really take a vacation and that’s making sure this blog pushes forward.

Every city has their top burger contender. That is true in a city that has been a big part of this search, Ottawa. The nation’s capital might not strike you as the type of city where you can find food, but if you’re willing to look, you’ll find something. Anyone who is looking for Ottawa’s best burger should try Chez Lucien before making any kind of judgement.

If there’s one dish that’s even more popular than the burger, it’s pizza. I have to admit that I might like the pizza a little more than the burger, but who doesn’t? Starting this month, I’ll be doing my best to post a monthly pizza post. While it won’t be as often as the Great Burger Search, the quest to find this city’s best pizza is one that we should all be on. So, with all the past locations fair game again, we begin with a newcomer to this blog, Pizzeria Napoletana.

The sixth season of Mr. Lew’s Great Burger Search is now underway. With that being said, I always like to start with something unique and special. For me, I’ve never started in my hometown of Brossard and this was the perfect opportunity. On top of that, there is a burger in my own backyard that should pique the interest of anyone who hears about it and that can be found at Jack Saloon.

Over time, there’s always that one restaurant that you wonder about. It’s that one place that you visited a long time ago and you weren’t so sure what to think of it. Well, a whole bunch of people like that place and you just quite understand. I have that feeling when it comes to Elixor and I had the opportunity to give it a second chance.

In this day and age, to compete with the countless restaurant concepts, you have to do things that will stand out. When you’re thinking about the ‘All You Can Eat’ world, there is a lot of competition and there, you still have to stand out. Under the category of Brazilian Churrasco, Le Milsa provides you with as much meat as you can eat.

After 10 months and 48 burgers, it is finally time to get to the final regular selection of the fifth season of this search. With a lot of things happening on the personal side of my life, I had to rush to finish this season of the search. This has given me the opportunity to try some of the places that I’ve been looking forward to. One of those places is Bar & Boeuf.

Boulevard Saint-Laurent is probably one of the most iconic streets on the island of Montréal. While there is a lot going on, there are some stretches of The Main that has very little when it comes to eating. In the last little while, you have a place that is starting to change that assumption and it’s called Pub Sir Joseph.

Almost 5 years in, it’s getting tougher to find places that make it hard to ignore. This island that we all call home has a lot to offer and there are surely some places that fit that bill. When you make your way to the west end of Westmount, you’ll find a place that is known as Brasserie Central.

Our whirlwind trip through Boston was winding down and we were making our way home. A lot of our students had to be home for Easter dinner and our options were limited. So, a stop in West Lebanon yielded a lot of fast food options, or so one would think. With a timer on this visit, this gave me the opportunity to visit Denny’s.
