In the burger world, 2013 will be known as a year where a few crazes took us out of the box. There were places that featured a cronut burger and some that featured other types of interesting ideas. One of those interesting ideas was the ramen burger. In New York City, a Japanese chef innovated that concept and soon thereafter, the idea spread to other places around the world. In Montréal, you can find the ramen burger at Tkrestobar.

The Mile-End part of Montreal is home to a lot of really big names in Montreal’s eating scene. Trying to become one of those iconic names isn’t quite that easy. When your neighbours are Wilensky’s and Fairmount Bagels, you know that the competition is ferocious. Fresh off their appearance their appearance on CTV’s Sunday Bite, Fabergé is one of the relatively new faces trying to cement their place among the rest.

Over the course of Summer 2012, I’ve been visiting a series of places that have been on a shortlist. While they haven’t been the kind of places you would necessarily hear great buzz from, they were close to what I was personally interested in. That all changes with the second to last name on that list, Grumman’78. It’s been well over a year that I’ve been dying to try what they have to offer. While I didn’t visit the truck, I took myself to the counter, which ensures that you get your taco fix all year long.
