The Burger Cellar

The Posh Burger
The Posh Burger sounds quite rich: an Ontario Natural beef burger topped with wild mushroom ragout, white truffle oil, and Emma’s mozzarella fior di latte. Indeed, they did not skimp on the truffle oil, and yet, I found the burger underwhelming. I was slightly put off by how soggy the burger quickly became. The side of hand-cut french fries were nothing special.

The appetizers fared better though I am neither a fan of sweet meat nor tomato soup. The flavours of the Hoisin Chicken Lollipops were surprisingly multi-layered consisting of golden fried drumlets glazed in hoisin sauce, wasabi-lime aioli, scallions and sesame seeds.

Tomato Soup

The soup of the day was a tomato soup with cheese and some green sauce; the waiter spoke at length in order to list all the ingredients until I became distracted by guilt about making him do his spiel in vain. The tartness was completely absent from this rendition of tomato soup, and the slightly melted cheese was a pleasant surprise.
