Advice: Share the fries with a friend as the portion is large.
These aren’t just any burgers, this is burger heaven. I had heard that Romer’s had some amazing burgers and since I had recently judged the Yaletown Burger Competition, I had to check out the new burger joint in Kitsilano. The star attraction here is the burgers, from the All-Natural Heritage Farms range fed Angus Beef to the Turkey, Free-run Chicken, or Wild Salmon.
I had the Man’s Man Burger ($11) All-natural beef, local creamery amber ale cheddar, onion strings, smoked alder salts and slice tomatoes. My friend Carlos had the Standard Burger with cheddar cheese ($10.50) all-natural beef, vine-ripened tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, and R sauce. We both shared a basket of the Fresh-Cut Fries ($7) with truffle oil and regianno. Asides from the tasty burger it is the bun that really won us over, each burger is served on a lightly griddled brioche bun. You can ‘Pimp Your Burger’ by adding savouries, marvelous mustards, different types of cheeses and more. There is a variety of starters including Poutine, a variety of French Fry offerings, fresh Salads and a couple of great looking desserts. The beer menu is about as impressive as the burger line-up and paired well if you choose to go that route. I’m looking forward to my return visit to try the So Cal Turkey Burger.
