Pearl River Burger
Every once in a while people start recommending burgers on the Livevictoria forums. Strangely the Loghouse Pub recommendation came from a "Best Restaurants" thread, and not the "Best Burgers" thread. I was completely oblivious to the existence of the Loghouse Pub, but figured the fat bastards that frequent the Livevictoria forums probably know a thing or two about eating in Langford.
The Loghouse Burger Menu reminds me of the late, lamented Logan's Pub Menu. Before their menu change, Logan's was easily the best burger spot in Victoria. With a twinkle in my eye, and a hole in my stomach, I scanned the Loghouse menu. After some soul-searching I settled on the Pearl River Burger.
Bleu cheese and bacon are a match made in heaven. Put them on top of 6oz of home-made beef patty, and you've got one of the best burgers in the capital region. Thank god they keep things simple too. After seeing so many ill-fated bun experiments, I was happy to see Loghouse go with classic sesame seed.
My only qualm with this burger was the amount of chipotle mayo: it needed about a dollop more.
Loghouse Pub offers seven different beef burgers (including a swiss burger with a wicked brandy peppercorn sauce) and a number of chicken and fish options too. Not only do they have an incredible number of menu options, the quality is excellent. A lot of places could take cues from the simplicity and TLC Loghouse projects.
Verdict: Easily one of the best in the region. A must-see if you're ever headed through Langford.
