Throughout the course of the last season of the Great Burger Search, an unofficial theme has been me trying sharing places that have been a vital part to my childhood and my past. While I know that the burger I’m about to present here isn’t anywhere near the caliber of the last 141, I can’t go on any further without sharing my roots. So, as you gander upon the food that surrounds Burger 142 at Guy La Patate, let me open another page in the book of Mr. Lew.

Lately, I’ve been going around and covering a lot of locations that had a place in my past. This place is no different. On a day where I had to run many errands, this fit perfectly in my plans. Plus, it’s really nice to not have to leave the South Shore to have a burger, for once. Jay C’s is located deep in St-Hubert, on the cusp of commercial territory and a highly residential neighborhood. Much more than being close to home for me, it’s also closer to another point in Mr. Lew’s past.

It wouldn’t be right to search for burgers without the supposed king of burger fast food. My love-hate relationship is now at a point where I can live without having to eat a Big Mac every week. As a matter of fact, this is only the second time in 2010 that I even set foot in a McDonald’s. Honestly, the food isn’t so satisfying anymore, but I’ll bring you the facts anyways.
Double Big Mac Trio
Double Big Mac
I’ll honestly say that this was the first time that I ever had the Double Big Mac. The Big Mac is my burger of choice when I enter one of these places, but I was curious to see what double the Mac was all about. The conclusion: MEH.
Apple Pie - The Box
The only part of the menu that still is worth the trip.

This has to be the most unique restaurant I’ve ever been to in my entire life. This used to be a former residence converted into a bistro style restaurant. You’ll notice that residential style lights are all over the place. Each table is decorated differently. I was lucky on this day because hey were still serving breakfast/brunch at 11:30 AM on a Sunday morning and allowed me to order lunch. Being a Longueuil location, you can access this location by either using one of several bus lines serving the immediate area.
L’Air de Rien Burger
I’d never thought I see the day where fruit would accompany a burger. Seeing how breakfast/brunch was being served to others, I found it quite amusing and tasty. The burger itself was good in the first few bites. As the material kept falling out or getting eaten, the patty was left. The patty itself was not very appealing and hurt the overall impression. With all the ingredients together, the burger is fine.
