Greek food and large group gatherings have become a vital part of my food adventures in Montreal. Ever since I’ve been to my first real Greek restaurant in September of 2011, I’ve been looking forward to every and each opportunity I could get. Most of those Greek outings, even if they were organized by me, came from the head of someone else. This would be the first time that I would be the one to choose the Greek restaurant. The pressure was going to be on my head.

With 2011 coming to an end, I have 2 locations in mind to close things off. I chose this particular restaurant for a few simple reasons. The first being that I’ve heard they had a nice selection of menus. The second was the unique name, which I find a little intriguing. The last reason was the special feature of their burger selections.

This restaurant holds a special place for me. It’s not the restaurant itself, it’s the location. This place is located a few doors down from where my late grand-mother used to live. I spent many a Sunday in this area during my childhood. So, this was more nostalgic than not.
The restaurant’s decor was quite unique. The booths were from another era. The menu displayed throughout one wall. The service was very considerate.
5 Napkins Burger
This burger contains onions, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, pickles, barbecue sauce, and bacon. The concept of this burger intrigues me. The name, for one, raises an eyebrow. Will I use 5 napkins? I’ll say, for one, the taste was quite good. I have no complaints. I, however, did not use 5 napkins, but just one. Another special note for the coleslaw and french fries, which complemented the burger well.
I put the title in capitals due to the unique name of the dessert. Usually, I do not order dessert on my burger quests, but this really intrigued me. This brownie, with ice cream, actually includes bacon in it. The cold of the ice cream and the warmth of the brownie go well together. The bacon was soft and mixed well with the consistency of the brownie. Though, I found the taste of bacon faded in all the sweetness. But, having said all that, I may die, now that I had a dessert with bacon in it.
