In July of 2011, this Great Burger Search went through its turning point, one that changed the way this whole enterprise was approached.  The restaurant that was part of that slow transformation was Méchant Boeuf.  With Happening Gourmand wrapping up, my third visit compelled me to have a much different kind of burger in a restaurant that had a strong first outing.

Over the last few weeks, the hot topic of conversation over the realm of social media has been about BBQ.  While I’m no real expert on the subject, I always keep my eyes and ears open about where I could find worthy BBQ to try.  Now, I didn’t go to the place where everyone is talking about, but I did find a place that had some of its own buzz over the last few months on its own.  For the last 6 months, Diablos BBQ has been taking on its fair share on St-Denis, a great street for food.

I’ve had my eye on this restaurant for almost 2 years. Unfortunately, my rather cramped schedule was the obstacle preventing me from coming to this establishment. They claim to have the “best” burger in Montreal. Whenever I hear anyone make that claim, I become very doubtful about it. In my opinion, there is no such thing as the best burger in Montreal, just great burgers all trying to vie for your hard earned dollar.

Bofinger is one of the few BBQ restaurants in all of Montreal. Now, my experience with BBQ is very limited, so I’m no expert. Once you come in, you’re confronted with a counter. Much like a fast food restaurant, you order what you want at this counter. Once you place your order, you wait. Seating is first come, first served. The decor is interesting as you’ll see monitors with TSN on. The stools are tall and the booths are cozy. The music in the background just calls out BBQ. Once you’re done eating, just leave your aftermath at the table, where a member of the staff will collect it. An interesting concept meant to really deal with the downtown Montreal lunch rush.

This sandwich contains french fries, cheese, Texas BBQ sauce, and pulled pork.

When I was looking at the menu before coming in, this sandwich just called out at me. It contains a lot of firsts for me. I’ve never had pulled pork in my life. I’ve never put french fries in a sandwich before. So, I basically killed two birds with one stone today. I really didn’t notice the taste of the pulled pork until much later in the meal. Since I have no real reference point, I can’t really judge the quality of the pulled pork. However, the french fries and BBQ sauce were real delights to have in the sandwich. The french fries added a sweetness to the taste, which was welcomed. The sandwich is rather easy to eat, though I felt the bun was a little too tough for my liking. This sandwich was my introduction to Bofinger. I will return in the near future to try some of the other offerings.

Paper Towel

I’m putting a picture of this because I’ve never seen paper towel so bluntly placed on a table like this.
