TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: It’s a burger made outta lobster, bro!!!!

I know yesterday was National Burger Day — I had like 75 people tag me on Instagram, bro! But for me every day is Burger Day, and that’s why we’re celebrating Friday with a lobster burger from Lobster Burger Bar, this funky joint on King St West. Now, I’ve had some massive lobster rolls before, and even a burger with lobster on top, but a burger made outta lobster? This I gotta see!

They call this the Halifax Lobster Burger, and it’s waaaay better than those nachos at the Scotiabank Centre, son! You’ve got a five-ounce Atlantic lobster patty, with mozza and white cheddar baked right in, plus lettuce, tomato and a whole lotta mayo. And of course, I paid 3 bucks extra to add bacon — dude, the Number One Rule of Flavourtown is Always Add Bacon!!!!

Now, when it comes to sides, I couldda gone with fries, or maybe some sweet potato spuds. But when I saw the poutine, you KNOW I had to try it. I was a little disappointed to see the skinny little matchstick fries, but you know what? Even though the curds were kinda melty by the time I dug in, they still had that squeak, and the gravy was the closest thing I’ve had to proper sauce en canne in a while. On the scale of one to redonkuluous, it’s no Poutine Mountain, but for a side dish at a seafood joint, this poutine’s pretty legit!!!

This is Land, Sea & Air Burger Gone Wild, bro!

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. 😉
