I was super excited that one of my favourite burger joints that started it all had FINALLY made it out to the west end! I was excited to see a chic indoor seating area – quite large – and a crowd of locals salivating for their orders. The kitchen seemed a little chaotic, almost unfocused; however, I really didn’t wait that long to hear my number called.
Oh, but then, after I sat down and began to devour my once highly regarded prize my heart sank. The cheese burger was tasty yes, but the bun – the magic – had fallen from that first kiss I had years ago at Shant Mardirosian location in the beaches. Fries were good and so was the, um Pillsbury tasting chocolate chip cookie. But is that enough? I say, no! One of my most cherished, most hyped burger joints has spread himself way too thin, let all the fame get to his head. Something was missing in this tiny little cherub… I think it was the love.
