For a 5th year, Le Burger Week returns from September 1 to 7, 2016. If you love burgers, then you don’t want to miss out on all the yummy goodness. There are burgers for all the tastes, from simple ones to outrageous ones. Of course, there are some vegetarian burgers.
I’ve decided to do a Top 7, in other words 1 burger per day. Though realistically, I’m aiming to try 3 burgers but we never know. Here’s my Top 7!
Chez Chose – Cheese Bagel Burger – $12
I love cheese and I love bagels and did I mention this burger is stuffed with cheese, what? A Turlo farmed pork meatball stuffed with l’Île aux Grues cheddar cheese topped with a fresh homemade bagel with relish and smoked mayonnaise.

A clean burger made with plant-based ingredients, perfect if you want to eat healthy and stay energized! 100% plant-powered burger made with beet, carrot, Sumac slaw, coconut bacon, tomato, lettuce, alfalfa sprouts and pesto mayo served on organic kamut, gluten-free, or collard wrap. This burger is clean, made with wholesome, plant-based ingredients, and supports a healthy, active lifestyle. Get energized.
La Brasserie Saint-Denis – Le P’tit Gros – $18
I mean there’s a tiny burger on top of a burger…how could this not be on my list? Wapiti burger stuffed with duck confit, 2- year old aged smoked bacon applewood cheddar from PEI, onion confit, apple cider infused radicchio and roquette, BBQ and beer mayonnaise, accompanied with a P’TIT burger puffed pastry stuffed with duck and foie gras mousse, garnished with radish sprouts.
