So I’ve been talking a whole heck of a lot about food lately, I’ve realized this and can recognize the fact that it might be getting a little obvious. “Oh, what has Mckenna posted for Evolution today? Another article gushing over pizza? Big surprise.” If you think this topic is tired, click the home page! There’s plenty of amazing articles written by our Beat Reporters, News Specialists and other Online Content Writers. BUT. If you love food and love reading about it then keep on scrollin’, because I’m about to tell you all about this AMAZING burger joint that you should have heard about by now.
Burger Heaven is exactly what the name implies. Located in New Westminster and tucked away in the corner of a side street, the restaurant’s been tantalizing the taste buds of generations since 1985, my Mum even remembers driving across the Patullo Bridge just to grab a bite to eat in the 80’s. Speaking of the 80’s, I don’t think a thing about the restaurant has changed since that colourful decade. It’s a dingy little wood panel walled joint decorated with neon signs and customers from over the years. Even if tiny little restaurants like these aren’t your forte, that’s okay. I’d say you should still stop by and check it out though, just to catch a whiff of their family style service. Personally, I’ve only ever gone a handful of times (And have only ever ordered the same burger because, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.) I can say with confidence that Burger Heaven never disappoints. With a menu that boasts at least a dozen different burger choices (with the choice to add on toppings), you can taste in every bite that the burger is homemade. Not only that, but it consists of what I can only describe as a sort of handmade professionalism. This is probably one of my all time favourite burger joints in the Lower Mainland, and is vastly different from the chain restaurants that have a suffocating uniform style of serving and ambiance.
I’m sure this isn’t the only home style burger place in the Lower Mainland though, do you know of any other spots I or maybe some of the other Evolutioners should go to on a night out?
