OMG Burger

Burgerlees:

OMG Burger SignOMG Burger is a new concept venue where an old church was transformed into a restaurant. Located in the Eastern Townships in the City of Sherbrooke, this place ironically adopted a devilish decor to create the ‘Oh My God’ food temptation that turns into a desire.

The OMG Burger, which costs 12 CDN$ (before taxes), comes served in a metal tray with the choice of the coleslaw salad or fries and accompanied by a soup of the day. The meat comes well done, as it always does in Quebec, with cheese, lettuce, tomato and their homemade mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise condiments. I must say that despite all this the burger had no taste and was quite dry.

It is definitely worth coming to this place just to see the decor as they’ve done such a wonderful job turning a church into a restaurant. The next time I’m in town, I’ll probably come here just to sit at the bar and enjoy a drink 😉 My overall rating for this burger is 2/5.

The Burger Bar

Supersonic Burger PlateThe Burger Bar located on Crescent street in Downtown Montreal is well known for its location and huge variety of different burgers. In the center of all the action, this American concept burger joint, yet with a touch of French Québécois added, is well worth the visit.

For 17 $CDN (before taxes), I ordered the Supersonic burger which consisted of a well done AAA beef patty, Jalsberg cheese, bacon, pickles, lettuce, peppers and spicy mayonnaise. Let’s not forget that it was topped with three delicious onion rings. It came in a sesame bun served on a white rectangular plate and choice of coleslaw, mixed greens or fries. I chose the mixed greens and even though this burger was massive and extremely messy to eat, it was worth every drip as it was so juicy and tasteful. The overall mixture of the ingredients blended well together and it made it one of the best gourmet burgers I’ve had so far.

I will definitely come here again the next time I’m in the city and try a different burger. They have so many choices and they offer the Hangover burger, which consists of poutine added (poutine is the well known French Canadian dish). This place is more of a burger porn joint and my overall rating is 5/5.
