So I’m going to admit something here – the other day I got lost on Prince Edward Island. My friends and I, all “from away” as the Islanders would call us, were unable to find our second burger destination on our Sunday burger adventure. After half an hour in the country-side, and some firm words with the google-maps app, we decided to head back to town and find a place that we hadn’t experienced yet.
This is how we found ourselves at the Chambers Restaurant at the Rodd Hotel in Charlottetown, trying the Hook & Ladder:
“Two 4oz. Island Beef patties, Horseradish Mayo, Caramelized Onions, Sliced Dill Pickles, Bacon Jam, Mushroom Duxelle, Swiss and Cheddar Cheese, Smoked Bacon, Beefsteak Tomato Slice, and Leaf Lettuce on a grilled Sesame Bun garnished with Dill Pickle and Cherry Tomato”
Of all the Burger Love entries, this one is probably the most classic. This enormous burger was served with a massive dill pickle and tasty cherry tomato. I could barely hold it in my (weirdly tiny) hands, which made it a challenge to get a full-flavoured bite.
This burger was tasty, but relatively basic. It contained all of my favourite toppings: pickles, bacon, and cheese – with a hint of mayo and bacon jam for sauces. It met my expectation, though far exceeded them in size. In fact, I barely finished a forth of this burger before packing it up. Scott was happy to finish the leftovers.
Overall – this burger was nice, but won’t be blowing any minds. A good burger for people who are looking for a classic.
