Chez Victor is a gourmet burger franchise on Saint Paul in Quebec City (walking distance to Old Quebec) with multiple locations within the city serving a variety of different burger selection for all tastes. This modern rustic funky concept restaurant offers on its menu vegetarian, salmon, pork, lamb, duck and the classical beef choices to choose from.
Amongst all the available choices I decided to go for Le Classique, which consisted of beef, cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, caramelized onions and pickles. The burger was priced at 13.25$ before taxes and for an extra 2.50$ I changed my meat to Wagyu Bio de Saveurs des Collines and my fries for a green salad with choice of dressing for an extra 2.50$ as well.
The burger came served on a white plate in a slightly toasted poppy seed bun with well done beef. In Quebec the burgers always automatically come well done, which works great for me as it is my preference. I found that the meat was slightly dry but the combination of ingredients mixed very well together, especially the cheese and mayonnaise. The bread became soggy but it wasn’t messy to eat.
I quite enjoyed my experience and overall it is one of the best burgers I’ve had in Quebec yet. If I ever have the chance to come here again I would try different selections from the menu. My overall rating for the classical burger is 4/5.
OMG 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 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 $CDN (before taxes), I ordered the Supersonic burger which consisted of a well done AAA beef patty, Jalsberg cheese, bacon, pickles, lettuce, peppers and spicy mayonnaise. Let’s not forget that it was topped with three delicious onion rings. It came in a sesame bun served on a white rectangular plate and choice of coleslaw, mixed greens or fries. I chose the mixed greens and even though this burger was massive and extremely messy to eat, it was worth every drip as it was so juicy and tasteful. The overall mixture of the ingredients blended well together and it made it one of the best gourmet burgers I’ve had so far.
I will definitely come here again the next time I’m in the city and try a different burger. They have so many choices and they offer the Hangover burger, which consists of poutine added (poutine is the well known French Canadian dish). This place is more of a burger porn joint and my overall rating is 5/5.
Les Péchés de Pinocchio Restaurant, located in a small town called Magog in the Eastern Townships, is situated on the main street beside the Jack-O restaurant. Close to the Memphrémagog Lake, this nice, warm and cozy ambience, yet elegant, little gem serves amazing food.
The Angus Beef Burger comes served on a white rectangular plate with choice of fries or salad. The bun was nice and fresh and the meat well cooked, as it always is in Quebec, with the expected cheese, lettuce, tomato and bacon toppings. Everything about this burger was excellent. The portion was just right, the meat was juicy enough and the taste was simply amazing.
The staff was very friendly and for 16 CDN$ (before taxes), I would definitely have this burger again and plan to the next time I’m in town. My overall rating is 4/5.
