Tucked away in the
heart of Parkdale amongst the busyness of Como Parade you’ll find yourself at
the Burgerlab. A funky styled burger shop offering their unique take on the traditional
burger with that something little extra.
Offering not just burgers,
Burgerlab caters to your culinary taste buds with a range of kitchen favourites
to satisfy everyone.
With a casual atmosphere
you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door, pulling up a stool we looked
over the menu to nifty little illustrations that gave you a nice little insight
into what you’re about to eat! Seems straight forward but rather helpful and
fun if you ask us.
Feeling hungry we dived
right in, deciding on the Buttermilk Free Range Chicken Burger, the Firedog
Burger, Southern Fried Chicken Wings, a side of Sweet Potato Fries, Grilled
Corn with Slaw and Chipotle Mayo and you know we had to top it all off with a
Snickers Shake and a Chocolate Malt extra thick!
And after no time at
all, the food appeared, and boy was it a lot – to say they were big burgers
would be an understatement they had some size on them. Jumping right in, the
Buttermilk Chicken burger had a good crunch and nice flavour whereas the
Firedog had a great spice from the Jalapenos which was a great little addition
to this burger.
All the while munching
on some sides we welcomed the change up of sweet potato fries opposed to regular
and freshly grilled corn covered in melted cheese – both gave this burger
experience a new twist on the traditional fries and onion rings. Which they have
– of course – but why not try something different we say!
Shifting gears, we got
into the buffalo wings – full wings not just drumettes or the wings – so again
we got more than we bargained for, but we were not disappointed. For us, we
could have used a little more spice to it, but that’s just us, we’re spicy people.
These were well worth over eating for!
The Burgerlab is a
great little neighborhood shop that is definitely worth a drive down or if you don’t
have a car don’t worry Parkdale Station is just up the road. While disguised as
a humble burger shop, they offer so much more which means you can go back again
and again and keep trying something new.
But let us leave you with
this thought, don’t be afraid to experiment when in the lab (sorry we couldn’t
help ourselves) no matter what you get, you’ll surely love it.
