In Montréal and other places, there are a whole bunch of restaurants that make their money on delivery and takeout orders.  Their menus offer a very large variety of items and they range from nearly every category of food.    The majority of these places have the option to eat inside the actual restaurant.  While the quality of these places is obvious, visiting them is a whole other deal.  Lafayette Hot Dog fits the bill when it comes to neighborhood restaurant that offers something that might just hit the spot.

2014 is well underway and everyone is back in the middle of their normal routines.  The same can be said when it comes to burger business.  Even if the year changes, one can be assured that nothing will be different when it comes to burgers.  With that in mind, the first burger of 2014 for the search comes to us from Dorval at Barbie’s.

The first burger post of 2014 takes a look at the very last burger experience of 2013.  You might think I’m crazy for covering the kind of place that I do my best to avoid, but there are times where you can’t avoid things.  For the third time in my life, I got the chance to try something rather unique at Boston Pizza.

A brand new year has now arrived and some of us are still stuck looking back at what was.  Well, that’s what I’m going to do for a few more moments while 2014 is waiting full of adventures and whatnot.  December was a month of fewer outings, mostly because people are staying home and using that time to relax.  I got most of my visits out of the way early so that I could take the latter half of the month to recover from that unavoidable cold.

When I look back at 2013, I can say that I tried at least 51 burgers and had a blast doing it.  The Great Burger Search expanded beyond Montreal with visits to New York, Boston, and Ottawa.  I got a chance to try a total of 9 burgers outside Montreal and some of them will be hard to forget.  Also, I also had the chance to visit some of the biggest names in restaurants when it comes to this wonderful city.  With places like Kazu, La Queue de Cheval, and Au Pied de Cochon taking their place on my burger list, 2013 will always be a year that will rank high in the history of this search.

My second burger on this day in Ottawa had to be one that was interesting.  There were many contenders, but one had a little something extra that was worth checking out before making my way back home.  Named after the address on Preston Street, two six {ate} provides the finale for my fourth Ottawa burger trip.

In the last 4 years of doing this search, I’ve always cherished each trip to the nation’s capital, Ottawa.  Since 2011, I haven’t had the chance to make it to Ottawa and that was something that bothered me because I had so much left to do over there.  On a random Sunday in November, I found that moment to attempt, not one, but two burgers.  The first stop was at The Smoque Shack.

The year is almost at its end and the finish line is in plain sight.  At this particular point, as I’m writing this, I only have 1 more burger to do in 2013.  I can’t believe that we’re almost looking at 2014.  November was a big month and there were a lot of interesting things that took place.  One of the most notable things was the fact that I managed to reach my unique visitor total from 2012 in 11 months instead of 12.  That’s one step forward.

Visit:  November 13, 2013

In the burger world, 2013 will be known as a year where a few crazes took us out of the box.  There were places that featured a cronut burger and some that featured other types of interesting ideas.  One of those interesting ideas was the ramen burger.  In New York City, a Japanese chef innovated that concept and soon thereafter, the idea spread to other places around the world.  In Montréal, you can find the ramen burger at Tkrestobar.

Ever walk by a place for years and wonder what the inside looked like?  There are so many places that can yield that sense of wonderment and the sad thing is that we don’t get to see all those places.  So, when you have a chance to set foot inside such a place, you leap at it.  This was the case with Chez Alexandre et Fils.

After over 4 years of searching for burgers, I’ve just now been going back to addresses that I’ve been to in the past.  It hasn’t happened too much, but I take every opportunity I can to revisit the buildings that once house past burgers.  This was the case when I had the chance to have lunch at Via Marcello.

When it comes to the most unique part of the island of Montréal, one could only go as far as the Old Port.  There, you have some of the most interesting architectural buildings the city has to offer.  They’ve been around for ages and it is interesting to see what occupies those places in 2013.  This is where Pub St. Paul comes in.

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.

To this day, I’ve consumed 215 burgers and visited a few cities in the search for great burgers.  But, when it comes to my stomping grounds of the Greater Montreal Area, there are so many stones that haven’t been turned.  One my biggest wishes was to find burgers on the eastern part of the island.  Well, I found a place that is one of the further east on the island in Teddy’s Deli & Bar.

Eat me.  There are those foods that just shout out those two iconic words when you see them.  In Montreal, there are a whole bunch of dishes that just scream the two magical words.  A few months back, a hamburger and poutine bar opened up on Mont-Royal, just wanting everyone to Mange-Moi.
