The infancy of Mr. Lew’s Great Burger Search had its growing pains.  Much like anything in life, it takes time to get into a groove.  We all make a few mistakes along the way and with that being said, we always like to get a second chance.  Interestingly enough, I’m not referring to a mistake made with a burger, but something even dumber on my part.  This is why we’re back at Faste Fou.

Whenever you consult a list of this city’s best burgers, there is always a place that makes an appearance.  Known for their oddly shaped burger patties and their over 50 years of serving this wonderful city, Mr. Steer has been an icon of Sainte-Catherine street.  For the first time in almost 5 years, I made my return to truly assess its impact on the iconic burger.

1377 Greene
Westmount, Québec

Métro:  Atwater
Bus:  STM 24, 63, 90, 104, 138

Visit:  February 12, 2014


Westmount is one of the nicest and most affluent neighborhoods on the entire island of Montréal.  Part of the reason for that reputation is the storied past that is such a vibrant part of today’s culture.  Included in the city of Westmount is a restaurant that lays claim to being the oldest on the entire island.  Since 1920, Chez Nick has been a vital part of all that is Montréal.

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.

Visit:  December 20, 2013


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.

Sainte-Catherine street is probably one of the busiest pedestrian avenues in the entire city.  On any given day, you’ll find thousands of people making their way to one place or another.  It’s the kind of street where things happen at all times of the day.  That’s the case in the middle of the afternoon at Guido and Angelina.

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.

Visit:  October 17, 2013

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.

Visit:  October 15, 2013


October is National Pizza Month and there’s only one way to celebrate such an occasion.  Pizza is probably one of the items that can give the almighty burger a run for its money and I happen to love eating it just as much.  So, in the ever-loving quest to find good pizza on this island, a trip to À la Vieille Cheminée was in order.

Pointe Saint-Charles is one of those neighbourhoods in Montreal where you can find some of the most recognized places to eat.  Over the last few years, the area has been going through a slow resurgence and that is no different when it comes to the world of restaurants.  Despite that, some tried and true places still remain like À la Fine Pointe.

735 Bord-du-Lac
Dorval, Québec

Bus:  STM 191, 209

Visit:  August 15, 2013

When it comes to finding something decent to eat on the island of Montreal, it is pretty safe to assume that you won’t be short of ideas in the central part.  When you start going towards the extremities, those choices become scarce.  When you add your standards and requirements to the mix, you’ll be hard pressed to come up with solutions.  Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow and try your luck.  That’s where Chateau Dorval comes into play.

Visit:  August 6, 2013


Finding food on the island of Laval is not an easy thing if you’re being particular.  The overabundance of chain restaurants is something that seems to be the key identity of Laval.  Some of those chains are good, while with others, they need not be mentioned.  One has to wonder how Portovino stacks up when it comes to scrutiny.

Crescent has a double reputation in the city of Montreal.  For tourists, it is the place to come to be seen.  For the rest of us, it is the place to avoid when you’re looking for something decent to eat.  So, that begs the question, is there anything worth visiting on the street?  Well, the only way to find out is to check all those places out.  One of the staples of Crescent is Dundee’s.

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.

615 Curé-Labelle
Laval, Québec

Bus:  STL 24, 151

Visit:  June 14, 2013

One of the struggles I’ve always had in my search for anything remotely edible is finding something in the territory of the island of Laval.  Whether it be a burger or anything else, I’ve always found myself with the feeling that there’s better out there on the island.  A lackluster night and a random suggestion brought us over to a place that relocated from the island of Montreal to Laval called b sweet.
