Last week I had the chance to try Bareburger at a private tasting. I hadn’t heard of the restaurant before, the first Canadian location of a New York chain. We had a chance to meet the franchisee and the owner of the original locations, as well as some of the suppliers and the executive chef. The team was really down to earth, answering any questions about their message and their food. They were happy to share their Bareburger story. The restaurant is decorated using beautiful reclaimed wood, it has a casual vibe to it.
Bareburger prides itself on using the fresh and organic ingredients. We had the meal “family style” although that’s not how they usually serve it so the portions may look a little crazy in the pictures. Upon arrival, we had some iced tea and lemonade, I’d highly recommend the white peach – black tea raspberry. We started with the sweet potato fries and onion rings with more sauces than I knew what to do with. These were probably the best sweet potato fries I’ve ever had in my life. Definitely one of my favourite items. I got through them so quickly, I just have a picture of the sauces.
We finished the evening off with two desserts (totally necessary). We had chocolate milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches. I love ice cream sandwiches so regardless of being so full, I had to try at least one. We didn’t know what each of them were – I picked up what looked like a snickerdoodle and took a bite. And the ice cream? It was roasted marshmallow – not just marshmallow but ROASTED marshmallow. I don’t know what sorcery he used to make it but it was so good.
I really enjoyed my evening at Bareburger. The food was really good and the service was great.
Have you been to Bareburger? What did you have?
