6835 Taschereau
Brossard, Québec

Bus:  AMT Terminus Panama

Visit:  January 16, 2014


Over the course of the last 4 years, I’ve been on approximately 350 different restaurant visits.  Now, the quality of the majority of those places won’t be enough to leave anyone in awe, but that’s how the cookie crumbled.  With the majority of those places being home to my past burgers, there was always one thought that went through my head.  A lot of those places had better things on the menu than burgers and I never had the chance to try them.  Well, I had the chance to do just that when I made a return visit to Ben & Florentine.

650 Kapkowski Rd.
Elizabeth, New Jersey

Bus:  NJT 40, 111

Visit:  April 7, 2013


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.

8746 Notre-Dame E.
Montreal, Quebec

Bus:  STM 22, 185, 410, 430

Visit:  March 7, 2013


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.

133 du Sous Bois
Mont-Saint-Grégoire, Quebec

Visit:  March 1, 2013


Over the last few weeks, we’ve all been in the midst of a very tense argument about the state of things in this province.  While that has been a very negative and nasty situation, we still have to remember why this province is still the best place to live in the entire world.  One of the key experiences to have when living in Quebec is to go to a cabane à sucre.  My favorite area for the traditional experience is in Mont-Saint-Grégoire.  The place for that is Au Toit Rouge.

6202 Sherbrooke O.
Montreal, Quebec

Bus:  STM 104, 105, 138, 420

Visit:  August 4, 2012

Recently, I was given an invitation to a restaurant to try something I haven’t done in almost 20 years, brunch.  Brunch is not something that I will go out of my way to go get, though it’s something that I’ve been thinking more and more about over the last few years.  Well, there was no better time than the present to cross that bridge than at Café Grand in an area of the island of Montreal known affectively as N.D.G.

901 Jean-Talon O.
Montreal, Quebec

Train:  Parc
Metro:  Parc, Acadie
Bus:  STM 16, 80, 92, 93, 179, 435, 935

Visit:  March 22, 2012

Say what you want about Parc-Extension, but there’s one thing you can’t really deny, there are a lot of restaurants.  They may range in quality, but you have quite the choice.  It isn’t all just centered in one main style of cuisine, but in many various different types.  For my purposes, I like to find burgers in as many different areas as I can.  This particular stretch of Jean-Talon gave me another meaningful addition to my culinary resume.

Visit: July 21, 2011

This particular visit was a long time coming. My colleague/friend, who I consider a pizza and ice cream expert, made this recommendation about a month ago. Due to unforeseen occurrences, we weren’t able to make our way here until this extremely hot day (47 degrees after humidex). But, like I always say, if it’s worth it (food-wise), I’ll take on any obstacles to devour it.
