Pizza AllNite is one of my favourite neighbourhood spots. Sure the prices have jumped a little over the years, and they don't have all-you-can-eat Tuesdays anymore — but they're one of the most humble, friendly (and tasty) pizza places in town.
Pizza AllNite updated their menu recently to include, amongst other items, burgers. Making a burger in a pizza oven is no easy task: burgers just aren't meant to be cooked in an oven. Pizza Pieman's demise could be partially attributed to their dryer than an Osoyoos sidewalk burgers.
Given my previous (albeit limited) experience with pizza burgers, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from Pizza AllNite. I figured this was probably a Bunsen Burger: just an experiment headed towards inevitable failure. Thankfully Pizza AllNite brings the same casual care to their burgers as they do to their pizza.
This burger is cooked inside a small cake pan, and manages to retain an incredible amount of juiciness. Not only is it juicy — it's also a thick, homemade patty. Housing the patty is a D'Italiano style bun: this offers a good bun:burger ratio, but it isn't quite as tasty as the pizza buns Pieman used to use.
Topping the whole thing off is a handful of cubed bacon and an incredible amount of cheese: the cheddar was actually oozing over the sides.
One more thing to note about this burger — the patty tastes remarkably like Wendy's.
Verdict: Surprisingly pleasant: a humble, homestyle burger I'd be happy to eat again.
