2013 is already upon us and we’re all probably ready to really get this year going. This is also the case when it comes to burgers. There’s not going to be any more time wasted as I’m looking forward to seeing what the new year has in store when it comes to having burgers. To begin the year, I look to a very crowded burger street in Avenue Mont-Royal and relative newcomer, Cornichon.

Montreal’s Saint-Hubert street is home to some of the more memorable moments and burgers in the past 3 years of doing this. While most common citizens come to this area to find that key ingredient for their wedded bliss, I come here to find the next step in a search for burger greatness. Even though it is situated just south of the sheltered portion of the street, La Bétise is another key component in the progression of the Great Burger Search.

My visit to Le Jardin de Panos is the third in the series of outings as part of the Fat Squirrel Society (inside joke). The first visit was in October for Korean BBQ and the second was in the midst of Chinatown. So, we took a little bit of a curve by going to see what other Greek restaurants there were to explore in Montreal. I honestly thought that I reached the plateau of Greek cuisine with my other visits, so I was hoping to expand to that list.

2011 has been a big year for me to try and get to like Greek food. Over the course of this calendar year, I got a know a Greek colleague who basically has been guiding me through Montreal’s Greek cuisine. But, I need to say that I’m not the only one who wants to expand their Greek horizons. Shortly after my post on Ellada at the end of September, a conversation on Twitter gave me quite the idea.

It’s been a fully charged Greek cuisine week for me. When I heard that our colleagues at school were planning a retirement party at this restaurant, I had mixed feelings. For one, my fellow food fanatic teacher cohort, who is Greek by the way, did not have rave reviews for the food. I also wasn’t going to pull out the full food blogger Mr. Lew hat for this evening, but I was convinced otherwise by my cohort. He was hoping that I would back up his previous statements. The rest of the personnel at school all felt that the food was quite good. I think I was going to make it my goal to see the truth since I obviously eat a lot.
