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 the course of the last 4 years, I’ve been on approximately 350 different restaurant visits.  Now, the quality of the majority of those places won’t be enough to leave anyone in awe, but that’s how the cookie crumbled.  With the majority of those places being home to my past burgers, there was always one thought that went through my head.  A lot of those places had better things on the menu than burgers and I never had the chance to try them.  Well, I had the chance to do just that when I made a return visit to Ben & Florentine.

I can’t start to say how busy October has been in just about every part of my life.  I finished off the month with a week where I visited restaurants nearly every day.  That way, I have a lot of my upcoming posts covered for the next month.  With that being said, the monthly review posts will now feature what was posted during that month, and not what was visited.  That way, it will make things a tad bit easier.

In 1985, an iconic movie was released and was stamped as one of the greatest high school movies of all time.  What that has to do with my latest visit is something that I’ll leave to someone’s imagination.  Let’s just say that there is a restaurant in Brossard that adopted the name for their operation and that place is called Breakfast Club.

Brossard’s Champlain Mall has been around for nearly 40 years.  For a lot of us living on the South Shore, it is the one place that we remember from our childhood.  With major competition from a nearby commercial goliath, it makes things difficult for the mall and any of its over 150 tenants.  One of those tenants is Via Vivoli, a gelato and dessert store.

Imagine you’re stuck in traffic on a nice day and you can’t wait to get that one frozen item.  Well, if you’re ever lost navigating the immense sector that is Quarter Dix30, you know that you need a reward for that.  By getting through the gridlock in the area, you can settle down for something sweet at La Fontana Gelati Bar and Lounge.

Quartier Dix30 has become the cornerstone of the city of Brossard.  In that area of town, you can find nearly anything and everything.  That is more than true when it comes to the world of eating.  As of three months ago, you couldn’t quite find any quality Greek food.  That has now changed since there is a place that is known as Skara.

With Easter weekend now behind us, we realize that every now and again, a break is needed.  This long weekend brought something that I wasn’t really expecting, another burger in the search and one that would take place in my very own stomping grounds of Brossard.  With this being the first burger in Brossard in almost a year, the candidate this time around was La Station des Sports.

My visit to Léo Pizza in Brossard marks another chapter from my childhood that I want to share with everyone.  Léo’s, as we called them at home, and their pizza played a large role in my upbringing.  In a relationship that spans almost 20 years, it is the establishment that introduced me to my all-time favorite ingredient in this whole, entire world.

One of the most important things for me in this Burger Search is trying to find places close to home.  The South Shore of Montreal doesn’t quite have the quality, signature places that the island does.  It might be the case when it comes to restaurants, but when it comes to shopping, that’s a whole other story.  Quartier Dix30 opened back in 2006.  Since then, it has grown exponentially and has become the face of Brossard.  What’s the most important commercial sector of Brossard without the possibility of a burger?  That’s what I wanted to find out.

I remember this particular week in the Summer of 2010 like it was yesterday. Heat wave. Those are the only two words that really describe what it was like. When it’s hot, no one wants to cook or even move. For that reason, we found ourselves in the air-conditioned confines of this restaurant. This was the third time I’ve ever been to Chenoy’s and I have yet to ever see it at it’s busiest. This restaurant also has the distinction of being one of two places that received two visits in the Great Burger Search. I was tempted to order a burger on this sorry day, but laziness won out and something else was taken instead.

Philly Cheesesteak

Tried: July 7, 2010

This dish contains steak, onions, and cheese.

Now, this is in no way a iconic Philly Cheesesteak. This will also never supersede one you could get in Philly, but it was hot, and I needed food. As for taste, I can’t complain. The first thing I did was pour the sauce all over the sub, which wasn’t a bad idea. Despite the decent taste, I would probably rather go for a steak submarine at one of those cheap steamy places.

Another breakfast place that recently opened near my stomping grounds, I was looking forward to trying the burger selection. The wait staff at this restaurant were all very keen on their customers, which was a good thing. Where I was sitting, I got a good look at the kitchen area where the “manager” was working. The manager was quite unique personality, though he was focusing on his “friends” more.

Burger w/Bacon and Mozzarella

This burger contains lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mozzarella, and bacon.

Being my second breakfast restaurant burger in three days, my expectations were once again low, with the exception of burger. As I keep reminding myself, breakfast places have no excuse when it comes to bacon. The unique shape of the bun was interesting to look at. The taste, at first, was decent and made good use of the ingredients. I’m still on the fence when it comes to mozzarella cheese on burgers. The disappointment came at the end stages of the burger. The combination of the tomato and the final bites of burger turned this meal into a cold one. The cold caused the flavor to be zapped completely from the burger. It was okay while it lasted.
