After a satisfying gym date with Hellen, we decided to load up at The Burgernator (269 Augusta Avenue). Tucked away in Kensington Market, this place is located amongst a variety of other small eateries with lots of local character. The Burgernator proclaims a mission to fight the good fight against poorly made burgers in Toronto with their own delicious handcrafted ammunition.
I’ve gotta say, this place does a superb and creative job in keeping their decorations and menu items in line with their battle theme. It’s a lot of fun! They also have a set of Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples for customers.
And now, let’s burgernate!
all beef patty, deep-fried herb crusted cheese, tomato, lettuce,
with a sun-dried tomato aioli
[combo with fries and drink for another $3.74]
This was sooo gooood. I like how the beef patty was cooked and the cheese was incredible. The home-cut fries were nice and crispy. Notably, they offer a range of condiments including ketchup, vinegar, and Tabasco sauce. Much appreciated!
crusted portobello mushroom stuffed with cheese and fresh herbs, topped with lettuce, tomato, and roasted garlic rosemary aioli
This is always a hit item with me, and it was no different here! The combination of the mushroom with the cheese and herbs was perfect, and I can already feel myself salivating all over again. I decimated this pretty quickly.
SALTED CARAMEL MILKSHAKE
Yum, I just couldn’t resist. This was pretty much what you’d expect it to taste like, and a perfect size to go along with the burger.
This is a great burger place! The portobello mushroom burger and milkshake here haven’t topped my love for the ones you can find in Holy Chuck, but this was definitely still a solid meal. Hellen and I demolished our burgers so quickly; they were just so good. We realize we completely mitigated our earlier gym time, but we felt like it was worth it, haha. As we left the store, the words “You’ll be back” read on the wall to our left. We probably will be, soon. lol :)
