Holy Chuck, 1450 Yonge Street
Holy Chuck is a fantastic burger place in Uptown Toronto that uses fresh (never frozen!) meat in their patties. This post is just a mere sample of their wide selection of burgers.
The Holy Chuck,the restaurant’s eponymous signature dish, is described in their website as "DOUBLE CHEESEBURGER WITH BACON & CARAMELIZED ONIONS
PLEASE DON’T PUT ANY TOPPINGS!!”. Indeed, I would recommend that you don’t put any extra toppings on the burger, otherwise they would warp the burger’s simplicity.
Animal Feed, is a panko-crusted portobello mushroom burger with feta, cream cheese, lemon herb aioli, lettuce, and tomatoes. It is a vegetarian burger that is packed with enough substance and umami to satisfy meat-lovers.
Personally, I think the Holy Chuck Fries looked better than they actually tasted. Smothered in bacon, cheese, and chili, all the flavours seemed to clash and disagree with each other. It it possible that this is just an issue of personal taste, since I don’t really like carrots, and the fries were covered in carrot cubes. However, I can confidently say that these fries were a second-rate rendition of poutine at best, given that they were a bit too salty (even for fries) to be enjoyable.
