What you loved and loathed last month

Toronto Life - - Contents -

Our rank­ing of the city’s top 20 new burg­ers brought out goo­gly-eyed, lip-lick­ing, bucket-list­ing burger evan­ge­lists ev­ery­where. A small sam­pling of the love, via In­sta­gram:

“I want this in my life NOW!!!” —fash­ion­po­lice­toronto

“Um, I just saw this, yum!” —joriel­lenunag

“This looks so good.” —car­ly­crum­pet

“BURRRGERRRRRr­rrrr.” —va­leriemis

“Should we go try all the best burg­ers? I think we should….”


“Let’s do it! But we must skip all burg­ers with­out pick­les on them. Just say­ing.” —maple­ba­con­pan­cakes Plus a few winky-eyed co­me­di­ans…

“We’ll of course have to ver­ify these spe­cious claims….”


And then there were the ve­g­ans, who ob­jected to the meati­ness of it all, and the car­ni­vores, who ob­jected to the ob­jec­tions of the ve­g­ans. “Wait­ing for ve­gan healthy op­tions...no cru­elty, no added chem­i­cals.” —the_in­nergy “Keep wait­ing.” —bran­don_bom­bay

“In­clude ve­gan burg­ers too pls (you know the ones that are bet­ter for us and the en­vi­ron­ment)!”


“Would you go to a hockey game and com­plain when they don’t start play­ing bas­ket­ball? You’re com­ment­ing on a post about burg­ers. Let it be about burg­ers.”


“There are great ve­gan burg­ers with zero pain and suf­fer­ing in­volved! At least 10 kinds. Please check and think about it.”


“These sand­wiches you speak of are not burg­ers.” —ryguy­lucy

“Agreed. Go hi­jack an­other post. Why are ve­g­ans al­ways try­ing to repli­cate meat dishes? Create dishes that stand on their own mer­its.”


Fi­nally, there was some grip­ing about burg­ers that didn’t ap­pear on the list (How could you not in­clude Rich­mond Sta­tion? Where is Mu­seum Tav­ern’s burger?) un­til we re­leased our top five all-time best burg­ers.

“Woo hoo for The Sta­tion Burger!! The best ever!!”

—Karen Mez­ciems, Face­book
