Uniburger: What a Burger!

One of my fondest memories of my childhood is being up north at my parent’s country house playing on the lawn while my Dad BBQued dinner. We used that charcoal Webber like it was going out of style. I loved to help my Dad, but I always knew I had to stay far away from the fire. I would bring him the meat, or a clean plate to put the cooked burgers or steaks on, all the while staying far away from the actual BBQ. One of our favourite dinners, besides a good rib steak, was burgers. Oh how I love a good hamburger (or cheeseburger)!

I had heard amazing things about the burgers at Uniburger. Classic all meat patty, fresh topping and a killer bun what’s not to fall in love with? One night after a long tiring day at work, my friend and I headed over to the Cote-des-Neiges location and ordered up a couple of burgers, fries and drinks!

There is no real vibe to the grungy, casual decor at Uniburger, it just feels like a burger joint. We grabbed a seat at one of the bench tables, filled our cups with Orange crush and sat sipping our drinks till our burgers and fries were ready. It didn’t take long for two picture perfect burgers and crispy fries to be arrive, and as soon as they were, we dug right in.

This is the only burger place I can think of that takes such pride in executing identical and perfect burgers. The burger was picture perfect and tasted even better than it looked. The burger screamed fresh meat, the toppings were just perfect and the delicious potato bun that held it all together was on point – No soggy mess here!  I especially loved how each burger is made fresh and can take about fifteen minutes for your order to be ready.  The fries were perfectly on point as well.  Crispy and not greasy, just really good fries.  

I really enjoyed Uniburger, so much so that I have been back quite a few times since.  For a damn good burger and fries, Uniburger has become my go to place, and it's so cheap!  Next time, I got to try a shake!

Le Santal, the very best of St. Martin

Vacation time is always the best time.  Planning every part of your trip and then finally getting to experience everything you hoped for.  This year, my girlfriends and I planned a last minute spontaneous trip to St. Martin with a stop in Anguilla.  I of course was excited for all the food.  The research started once my flight was booked, and did not stop until I felt we had more than enough options.  I can get obsessive, so I had to really narrow down my list.  At the top of my list were a few, but one kept reappearing, Le Santal.  

Sitting on the beautiful beach of Sandy Ground St. Martin, Le Santal blew my expectations like no other restaurant has ever done before.  We pulled up to the restaurant where the valet and hostess were waiting for us.  Our car was taken to the parking lot and we were escorted to our table.  Our table was overlooking the water, so beautiful so calming, we really enjoyed the view.  
The restaurant is gorgeous.  Elegantly decorated in whites and blues, it real…

Grumman 78 - A Taco heaven?

Scrolling through my pictures this weekend, I noticed ones from my lunch at Grumman 78 and immediately realized that I had never written a review on them - shame on me!  Better late than never right?  So here it is, a year late ...

My visit to Grumman was so long ago, in fact it was at their Faubourg location that closed a while back.  Two friends and I headed over the Grumman for what we heard were the best tacos in town.  Arriving at their order counter, I quickly ordered two tacos (pork stick and the lamb curry taco), papas Grumman and a tomato and corn bread salad.  

The first Taco I had was their "Pork Stick" topped with a delicious potato and egg salad.  When ordering this taco I thought I would be transported into a different taste dimension, maybe I was expecting too much.  It was good, but nowhere near as good as everyone made it seem.   I found it to be a bit lacking in flavour, I barely tasted anything expect the salad topping.  I enjoyed it but wasn't as impres…

Spiga; Italian cuisine on a French Island

Spiga Grand Case, St. Martin

Since travelling to Italy, I have become such a snob when it comes to eating Italian food.  I don't enjoy pizza as much, except for a couple of places, pasta dishes seem bland and tasteless, and don't get me started on the meats.  I just don't get it.  Italian food used to be my favourite, but now, I just keep dreaming of the day I can go back and eat till  explode, literally!  I am saved sometimes as my co-worker is a from Italy and happens to be a killer cook.  She satisfies my gnocchi craving when I need it the most.  So when I came across Spiga on my restaurant quest of St. Martin, I was cautious, but hopeful.  
We parked like typical locals, squished on some lawn on the side of the road, and walked in to the very cute restaurant.  It was quite busy, one table in particular was overly rowdy and obnoxious, nevertheless we were seated very quickly, a very big plus in my books.  We sat down, ordered drinks and waited hungrily to order our mains. …
