Cheese Burger: 3.3
$12 (platter with fries)
Wednesday special: burger platter + show: $12
Ron Josol provided the laughs, and man, the guy’s funny! The entire Tuxedo Park mall is under destruction, but if you persevere, you’ll find your way through the scaffolding and descend to Rumor’s. The burger special is served between 6 and 7 and they won’t sell you a ticket unless you’re there (no ordering for tardy friends).
Super Boy’s. The bread-wrap was the weak link - a Wonder Bun would’ve been a step up. However, it was a stack in conflict - the bright red tomato and delicious easy-bite leathery bacon were in juxtaposition with the other ingredients. The patty was topped with a sprinkle of shredded marble cheese and broiled. It all made for a good presentation served bun-open.
Geoff reviewed: “A big crowd for our burger day down in the basement at Rumor's. The burger is pretty basic, and not a lot of leeway on the toppings or selection. The Spartan burger comes with only cheese, tomato and lettuce, with a side of mayo. The patty was a bit crumbly, and not a tonne of flavour in it. There was talk of onions in the meat, but I didn't spot them. The club itself is an institution and it was an inspired choice. The servers were friendly and fairly efficient. The fries were tasty.”
Cary scrawled on his little review slip: “The patty has a lot of filler and the bun is very plain. Good Poutine. Joke (because at Rumor's): How does a burger acquire good taste? With a little seasoning (ba dah, dump).”
We learn so much about each other at Burger Club. Laura has been going to Physio and her “butt is loose now.” It was their anniversary and someone in the kitchen inadvertently made Willy the butt of a joke by serving him his burger with two bottom buns and Laura two tops. Correction: It was Willy who received the bottom buns. Blog updated.
Nat (with an h) *loved* the poutine: "Great fries and Poutine -> big compliment coming from a Quebecer!”
