I’ve never worn a burger hat. I’ve dressed like a banana on many occasions (including the Saturday before said event), but never donned a felt hat in the shape of a burger. An honor really, as being chosen to be the events blogger was a challenge I was willing to accept. As a blogger myself (Indie Music Filter), I know its great to keep an online record, a communication tool and a home for a club of this sort.

I’ve never reviewed a burger before. But as I prepared to dig into Pikey’s offering, I took pictures and paid attention to what I was about to put away. Advertising that they only serve organic, local, farm produce, free range and cruelty-free food, I knew I was about to enjoy a richer experience than the burgers I normally eat. Their char-grilled beef burger was dressed with bandaged cheddar, tomato, Worcestershire aioli, with a good serving of chips on the side. The meat was tender and succulent, cooked just to my requested level of rareness. The aioli added that twist that gave the burger its own distinction. And of course, the challah bun, like a good bun, held it all together.

I’ve never been to Pikey’s before, but enjoyed this restaurant. The low-lit atmosphere gave a certain mystery to the burger experience. The staff were friendly and did their best to accommodate a hungry and sizable group.

Even though the chances of my hitting another BEU meeting sometime soon is quite impossible (unless I start a Toronto chapter, with permission of course), I look forward to coming back, as now I’ve got a bar to measure my future burgers against.

Long live BEU.
