Now, a couple months back, we visited this funky upscale joint on Yonge St. called lbs, where they only had three things on the menu: lobster, burger and salad. Now, I went with the lobster, but I kinda wished I couldda had a burger at the same time. Turns out you can get this—you just gotta go further up Yonge St for it:
Now, the last time I was at Lobster Monster, this funky little joint just north of Lawrence, I had the lobster nachos, which were actually no bueno, bro! But I said I’d be back for the Monster Lobster Burger Tower, a sammy so stacked, they hold it together with a steak knife, son!
Now, y’know, sometimes you can get a burger where you get a whole buncha crazy toppings that can’t hide the fact that the beef is a frozen patty from No Frills or something. But lemme tell ya, on this Monster Burger, the beef is king. You’ve got a thick, juicy, 8 oz patty cooked to a perfect medium that’s just bursting with flavour. Yeah, the fried egg is a nice touch, and then you’ve got some chunks of lobster on top, with lettuce, onion, tomato and cheese…but the burger itself holds its own, even without its feathered and scaly friends.
And hey, having the onion ring, the spring roll and the giant pickle make for nice little snacks, especially since it costs an extra four bucks to add a side…and you probably don’t need a whole side dish, anyways. 😉
