The burger of my dreams

For months, my friends and I have been trying to get ourselves over to Holy Chuck Burger but life kept getting in the way.

Last night, our burger dreams were answered. I had The Holy Chuck — their signature double beef patty with cheese, bacon and caramelized onions) and yowza! It is now my favourite in the city. It practically fell apart in my hands it was so tender and juicy. I think it may even replace the other burger that stands out in my mind as one of the best I’ve had, that being the one at Blackbird in Brooklyn.

I also had the nutella and salted caramel shake (how could I not, right?). It was delicious, but, for  me, a bit rich and sweet it was hard to have more than a few sips of it.

We’ll definitely be going back — there are some other crazy (erm, decadent aka fatty) menu items we’re dying to go back to try, namely the deep-fried pickles with bacon panko crust (and no, none of us are pregnant) and the nutella and Lindor lollipops with whipped cream.

Oh, forgot to mention, we also shared the funnel cake. (Sure am glad I’m doing not one, but two, workouts today!)

Ambiance-wise, the restaurant is very basic, like your typical fast food joint — but really, you’ll be so busy having a love affair with your burger that your surroundings will become foggy anyhow. I did enjoy their signage, though:

    I can’t stop thinking about deep-fried pickles with bacon panko crust!

      I KNOW — you’ve only mentioned going back to try them, oh, like five times!

    […] swellness. In my opinion, this place has got nothing against a good ol’ greasy burger from Holy Chuck Burger or one from Burger’s […]
