Beef and Cheddar Burger
$10? $11? I forgot to write it down, but it's in that neighbourhood

This is a bit of a White Spot clone, albeit a fairly satisfying one. The tomato relish/aioli mix is what gives this offering the Nat Bailey air which anyone who regularly dines with their grandma/on BC Ferries is familiar with. That's not a bad thing, it's actually rather comfort providing.

The bun selection here is perfect: a light and squishy number, with a hint of focaccia flavour, that stands in good ratio to the 6oz flame-grilled patty. Most of the burgers in our fair city would be greatly improved by switching to this bun, or one similar to it.

Don't have much else to say about this burger. It truly does taste almost exactly like a Triple-O—just fresher and for a different scene.

VERDICT: White Spot with a skinny tie.
