I met up with a long-time Peep of mine and her son Little K, for a Friday night dinner at the Yellow Griffin located near Bloor and Runneymede.
I am a frequenter of this area and have walked by this establishment on numerous occasions. The word on the street is that they have the best burgers on Bloor. I was about to finally find out if this was true.
A small establishment, a few tables and booths inside. Their menu includes traditional pub fare, kids meals and an array of 35 unique burger creations. With any you can pick the type of burger – beef, turkey, lamb, chicken, salmon or bison and you pick a side – Grif Fries, sweet potato fries. salads, poutine. Their burgers take 20 minutes to cook and create, so best order early!
I opted for the Big Stilton Burger – Beef burger with walnuts, roasted garlic, Stilton blue cheese and a side of Grif Fries.
I knew I would enjoy this burger before seeing it because it was topped with ingredients I love each on their own. Imagine them all in one spot together! The burger was think and cooked perfectly, still juicy. Just enough garlic and blue cheese to complement each other and not overwhelm. Perfect amount of crispy, fresh fries.
A definite recommend for the Yellow Griffin! =)
