GBC Gourmet Burger Company – Great Big, er, Disappointment

The Anticipation

I have been looking forward to visit the Gourmet Burger Company! And boy oh boy, was it a disappointment! Offering lamb burger and a variety of cheeses as toppings available may be gourmet, but the patty and bun are the primary elements that make the burger and they were unsatisfactory.

The Order

I visited during a Saturday for a late lunch/early supper in between appointments. It was an odd time of the day to eat so the joint was empty. I ordered the Lamb Burger with tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers,  and GBC sauce. I ordered the combo with fries and a soft drink, for a grand total of $12 and some change. The service was pretty good – I went to the washroom while waiting for my order and my friend, and the cashier had placed my order at my seat. Please suffer through my blurry pics – I didn’t want to be so obvious being the only customer, so I used my phone and didn’t wait for it to focus.

Taking Gourmet Fast Food to a Whole New Level

I took advantage of New York Fries’ buy-one-get-one-free offer on Twitter after the Canadian Women’s Hockey won gold (yay!) and got myself some yummy yummy poutine for dinner. I thought I should eat a more balanced diet (even though I’ve made a meal out of a regular sized poutine frequently – definitely a guilty pleasure).

I was inspired by Fancy Fast Food when I thought of this recipe. I decided to pair New York Fries poutine as a side to accompany the pork tenderloin I had just gotten from the supermarket, while it’s fresh.
