A couple of weeks ago my hubby and I took my daughter, Kat, shopping downtown in Kensington Market. She was looking for a Grade 8 graduation dress. (My baby is growing up!) Since my husband is gluten-intolerant, we decided to try The Burger Bar, since they have gluten-free buns for their burgers. :)
I love all the vintage beer bottles around the restaurant. They serve lots of local beers, my husband and I tried the Augusta Ale ($6.25/pint), since the only gluten-free beer they carried was Nickel Brook. :(
It was actually pretty good. I was pleasantly surprised. It was light and refreshing on that hot and sweaty day. Also, it went well with our yummy burger and fries. :)
I ordered the Mushroom burger ($8). I loved it!! I forget sometimes, that something so simple like grilled marinated portobello mushrooms can taste so good. Of course, arugula pesto and roasted peppers also helped. :)
Our most favouite thing we ordered was the 50/50 fries ($5). It's a mix of regular fries and sweet potato fries sprinkled with masala salt served with homemade chipotle ketchup. We devoured this bowl of fries, if we had more time, I think we would have order another one. :) ** Just a warning though, the Burger Bar only has one fryer, so those with severe gluten-intolerance or Celiac should stay away of their fries. Sorry! **
I can't wait for the next time we go, I really want to try their Lamb burger - 6oz organic lamb, kimchi, Danish blue and dijon. (I'm drooling as I type right now. lol )
Have you been to the Burger Bar? What did you think? Do you have another restaurant recommendation in the same area?
