Oh yes, another Burger joint has made it to Foodies Inked Burger Quest. I do have to preface this post by making one big disclaimer; this new addition to the quest only applies to the BQM shop on Queen Street West. I have heard and read many reviews on this chain across town and most of them concur that the taste, service and flavour vary by location. Not really sure why, but that’s just the way it is…like the song says.
BQM is a diner specializing in all things Burger, just like The Yellow Griffin Pub. It offers a variety of burgers with many topping choices, as well as three different kinds of freshly, never frozen, naturally raised, hormone-free AAA Ontario beef.
My favourite choice is the Stem Burger.
Choosing the Chuck part of the cow for my pattie – oh yeah did I forget to mention you get to choose which side of the cow you want? Chuck, Sirloin or Brisket? – I decided to have my burger accompanied with a fried egg (soft yolk), bacon, avocado, mozzarella cheese, tomato and lettuce. Are you already imagining the way it all looked once put together and egg yolk was dripping all over it? Imagine no more…
The bun was tasty and fresh, I am sure its store bought but pretty good never the less. The beef was juicy and done to my liking, medium-well; and although it could have used a bit more seasoning, the bacon/avocado addition balanced it out quite nicely.
BQM also offers your typical side options, and although this is extra, my recommend would be to go for their sweet potato fries with a side of their garlic aioli, it brings it all together. And to drink, a pint of the Steam Whistle, which is their staple beer, would be your best bet.
Until my next quest find!
