Just a little over a year ago, I made a decision that would expand the scope of this Burger Search to include all kinds of burgers. Regardless of what went into them, if a burger was on the menu, it was fair game. With fish, chicken, and shrimp all getting their turn this season, it was time to once again revisit the land of the veggie burger. While some might be turned off by this idea, there are still droves of individuals who look for options like this to carry out their lifestyle. The appropriate place for the second ever veggie burger in this search comes from Crudessence in downtown Montreal.

Have you ever had a meal that you know other people would never agree with you about? About 2 years ago, I visited Deli Planet and had a burger that really surprised me. I didn’t go out of my way to tell everyone how good it was because I just knew that others would probably not see it my way. So, out of nowhere and out of a bit of curiosity, I decided to return to Deli Planet to see if there was consistency.

The trip to New Jersey/New York has now come full circle. For 4 days in the beginning of April, the experience in those two iconic states has been one that shall never be forgotten. At this point, it was time to make our way back home. It was only fitting that since our trip came full circle, that we made one last stop in the Queensbury area to have one last meal as a group.

On the last day of our trip to New York and New Jersey, we set off on our way back to Montreal. Along the way, we needed something to eat and we entered the city of Allendale, New Jersey. Little did we know that we would be stumbling into a special place known as Allendale Eats!
During this Great Burger Search, I’ve always been about reaching the last visit of the season. I’ve always saved the most anticipated burger for last. This being the fourth year of the quest to find great burgers, something just had to give. Sometimes, there are opportunities that are too good to pass up.

Regardless of where you’re living on this planet, you’ve probably heard of this restaurant. The International House of Pancakes is a name that has made many appearances in movies and on television. Though you can’t find one in the province of Quebec, you still aren’t very far from one. IHOP, a breakfast staple, is home to another surprising element to the Burger Search.

Our main destination for our second night in the New York area was at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Me, being the ultimate opportunist that I am, was planning on seeking out any burger I could find in this relatively new building. With New York traffic shutting us out of the first half of the game, this burger might of never happened. In any circumstances, we arrived early enough to get to our seats and for me, to get to Prospect Heights Grill.
Check out how we got here, Prelude to Burger 187.

The first stop in my 4 day trip to the was along the lines of a rest stop. The city of Queensbury popped up at the right time and we were in need of something to eat. It was out of the corner of our eyes where we saw Friendly’s. Friendly’s is an American diner chain that also touts their wide variety of ice cream.
A few months ago, a trip idea was presented to me and it was one that I couldn’t really pass up on. Over the coming 5 weeks, you’ll be seeing the fruit of that labour. From April 5th all the way to the 8th, I had the wonderful chance to spend time in the states of New Jersey and New York. Over that time, I had the chance to see a whole lot and I managed to consume 5 different burgers.
The month of March is now behind us and it was a very busy one. The blog itself celebrated its second anniversary. It’s hard to believe that so much time has already passed. Also, it must be noted that the March also set another benchmark number of unique visitors.

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.

Time and time again, the best types of places to visit for nearly any kind of quick fix are your local neighborhood haunts. These tiny places are full of history and personality, which makes things all the more interesting. The borough of Verdun has one of those places tucked in an out of the way part. That place is known as Pierrette Patates.

In 2009, I embarked on a course that would take me to places that I never thought I would ever see. Now, over 180 burgers later, there was that one place that I just had to return to. Before any one of us can move forward, we always have to give our dues to the past. Without the past, the future doesn’t have a chance. While the Burger Search officially started with an iconic place, the real path began at Frite Alors!

The Pointe-Saint-Charles district of Montreal is becoming an increasingly popular area when it comes to finding places to eat. These neighborhoods are becoming the places to go to when it comes to finding those places. One of the places that’s attracting crowds is a place called Le Diable à Quatre, which touts itself as a modern tavern.

One of the biggest issues that I always mention in doing this search on the island of Montreal is the fact that it’s not very easy to find burgers in the east end. At this point, the furthest east I’ve been has been near Les Galeries d’Anjou and I just know that there are places further east. So, for this visit, I ended up at Coronel on Notre Dame East.
