Burger’s Priest


For anyone that lives in Toronto, one of the most talked about burger place is Burger’s Priest. It has been opened for quite a while, but every time I passed by the place, there would be big line. I finally had a chance to visit the place in the middle of October.

The inside of the restaurant is much smaller than I expected. I knew it was smaller, but it was much smaller than imagined. I didn’t take in much of the interior as I should have but the place looked clean. The front of the restaurant occupied some tables and chairs that were crammed together. This most certainly is not the place to take a group of people to eat at.

Anyway, let’s get on to the burgers.

When you take a look at the Burger’s Priest website, they have their traditional menu. But, they also have a secret menu. To access the secret menu, you have to answer a question about Noah’s ark. You can try more than once to answer it, so basically everyone has access to the secret menu.

They have some interesting burger combos in their secret menu. Some are way over the top with the fillings and look impossible to chomp on. Originally I wasn’t going to order an item from their secret menu. However, I figured I’d only visit this restaurant once so I might as well go all out.

I ended up ordering the “Vatican City.” The burger has two grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns, two double beef patties, cheese, and whatever toppings you select. I ended going with all toppings except for mayo.

The photo above is what mine ended up looking like. One word to describe the burger: Greasy. There was an excess amount of grease in this burger. I know it’s expected to be greasy, but this was not a good greasy feeling. I’m surprised the burger didn’t drip puddles of grease. However, the patties were good. They were juicy and flavourful. Other than that, there wasn’t anything special to the burger. I did have a difficult time trying to bite into the burger. My first few bites barely got both grilled cheese sandwich buns. It wasn’t until halfway through the burger that I could finally eat it properly. The fries weren’t that great either. McDonald’s has better fries, in my opinion. Also, it is quite pricey at Burger’s Priest. For the “Vatican City” burger, it was about $11, plus I got a drink, so it came close to $15.

Overall, my experience at Burger’s Priest wasn’t special. The burger didn’t have the “wow” factor I was looking for. I’ve eaten at Shake Shack before, and for a much smaller burger, I enjoyed that much more. However, if you’re curious about the place, I suggest visiting it once and ordering an item from the secret menu. But otherwise, I suggest saving your money and going some place else.

    I heard so many good things about this place too and I wanted to visit and try it out next time I go to Toronto, but I’ll pass. Thanks for your review!

      No problem! Thanks for checking out my review 🙂 The hype was why I had to check out the place. Next on my list is Parts & Labour.

Thanks a latte, @nespresso.ca ☕!
⠀
TIFF '19 ended this past Sunday. During the festival, I saw 19 films in 11 days. To try and stay awake, I drank lots of @nespresso coffee (swipe ⏩).
⠀
It started with one cup on Festival Street, where I had the Melozio. It has the intensity of 6. Then, when volunteering at the TIFF Industry Centre, I had many cups there during my shifts. I had one of the strongest ones twice in one day and instantly regretted it after my shift.
⠀
TIFF is when I mainly drink coffee because I need to stay awake for all the films.

I'll be frank, this is actually a veggie dog 🌭
⠀
Yesterday was the start of September, which meant I officially started being a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I'm not against eating meat but for health and environmental reasons, I've decided to make the lifestyle switch. I would like to cut out dairy and egg but it's too difficult for me right now.
⠀
I had a veggie dog today at @canadaslargestribfest from @theultimatefoodtruckco. It does have a different texture and taste but it wasn't that bad! It slightly tasted like some kind of tofu.

Keep calm and curry on! (Swipe ⏩)
⠀
Two weeks ago I went to Manpuku for a second visit, after a trip to the AGO. Again, I had the takoyaki but I also ordered the Curry Udon with beef.
⠀
For $6.99, the size was pretty good for the price. I do think for some people, the curry might be a bit "watered down". I know I wasn't used to it but there is still a prominent curry flavour. Also, for an extra $1.50, you can get a noodle refill but the amount given was perfect for me at the time.
🍜

Whiskey away to a colder climate, please! 🍧
⠀
The summer heat is why one reason I can't stand this season but having @kekougelato makes it bearable!
⠀
Yesterday I got a scoop of Whiskey Green Tea on top of a scoop of Durian. The Whiskey Green Tea holds more whiskey than green tea but eventually the taste of the whiskey starts to fade when you continue to eat it. And the green tea provides an almost Earthy element to the combo. When I combine that with the Durian, the Durian packs a much stronger flavour than the Whiskey Green Tea but both are still good flavours to get.
⠀
Thank you again @alt.aria for your complimentary double scoop! 💙

(Free) Food will always have a pizza my heart 🍕
⠀
To celebrate the grand opening of their Oakville location, @blazepizza is giving away free pizzas today from 11 AM to 10 PM! All you have to do is download the Blaze Pizza app and go line up for the free pizza! It's that simple! You can choose from one of their Signature pizzas or Build Your Own (1-2 toppings).
⠀
I've been meaning to check out Blaze Pizza in Toronto but always forgot to and since I'm closer to Oakville, today's grand opening was the perfect way for me to try it! I got the Art Lover signature pizza (swipe ⏩), which has artichokes, ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, and dollups of tomato sauce. I also added some oregano. The pizza is thin (which I prefer), and though it doesn't look like much on the Art Lover one, it actually packs a lot of flavour.
(The other pizza pictured is the Meat Eater.)
⠀
What's your go-to pizza topping?
🍕🔥
