Burger quest. Stop no 4: Buns!
Sometimes, the smallest and most unexpected place is the best. Here is the perfect example: well hidden between two shops on Ste-Catherine and sharing the place with a ice cream shop and a sandwich place is Buns! The guy behind the counter looks like someone you don't want to mess with, tattoos all over the body, facial hair reaching his chest, with some flip flops! I know that it is wrong to assume anything from him but it just makes our trip more fun by doing so! For those who watched 'How I Met Your Mother', the place reminds me exactly of where Marshall went to. And I was expecting an orgasm when bitting into my burger! Did I have one? He he, read along!
The menu is simple, you have hamburgers, fries and soft drinks. All taxes included and the extra cheese is free!!! We ordered the hamburger all dressed (tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickle, ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise). He served it wrapped in checkered paper which was put in a brown paper bag.
Well installed on the stairs in the 'Quartier des Spectacle' during the Jazz Festival of Montreal, we excitedly revealed the mouthwatering hamburger from its little paper. Mmmmmm, by cooking the pattie on the charcoal, it gave the perfect amount of smokiness and provided a certain crispiness to the edges of the meat. And must I say, the ingredients were perfectly balanced. For once! The pickle was the best part! Miam miam miam! Did we found the perfect burger? I am not sure I want to say that yet since it is only our 4th destination but I will give a 9 on 10. I would have liked more pickles :) Hi hi hi hi! Stay tuned for the next burger stop!!!
