Saint-Denis is not an easy street to have a restaurant. Go along any stretch of the north-south thoroughfare and you’ll see just how many eating establishments there are long the road. When you think broader and start branching out a bit, the competition is stiff. For my first burger in 8 months on the street, I chose Universel, a place more commonly known for their breakfasts. However, they also have a wide menu of other common food.

With so many burger locations opening up in Montreal in the last few years, Cheeburger Cheeburger has been one of the few that I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. This is the second American chain, after Five Guys, to open up shop in the province of Quebec. With American norms driving a new Canadian business, one is to wonder how it will do in our oversaturated burger market. So far, after being open 3 weeks, I’ve heard mostly positive things about this place, making me want to visit all the more sooner. Regardless of that, even after such a short period of time being open, I was leery of what I was to receive.

La Cage Aux Sports was one of the burger search location that I’ve been waiting to go to since I began this whole adventure. Over time, I’ve kept this as one of my back-up locations in case another didn’t pan out. However, I found the perfect opportunity to come to the cage of sports. Now, this wasn’t the particular location I chose. Thanks to Janet Jackson at the Bell Center, we had to shuffle down Rene-Levesque to the next closest one, which wasn’t a big deal at all, or so we thought.

I know what you’re thinking, why Subway. I’ll tell you why. Subway has been my go-to “fast food” restaurant since at least 2000. I have rarely ever been disappointed by my many visits to this place.

This sub contains lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, olives, cheddar, and turkey all on fine herb cheese baked bread with house sauce.
This is my optimal choice when I order at Subway. I was devastated when they no longer had the Italian Special bread, but I quickly came to know the fine herb bread. This is one of the few times a year when I eat turkey. I think, for me, it’s the only tolerable way to put turkey in my mouth. At one point in my life, the 12 inch sub was just enough for the large person like me. But, thanks to some recent weight loss, the amount of food in this sub was now too much for me. But, I’ll say, the taste always keeps me happy. I know Subway isn’t everyone’s taste, but it’s mine.
