Toronto’s restaurant scene has been a lot beefier lately. The reason? Torontonians are finally giving hamburgers their due.
The burger, that once pooh-poohed standard of American fast food, has experienced a recent rebirth into the world of the gourmand. Yes, it’s possible to get a gourmet burger in Toronto now – several of them in fact. New gourmet burger joints are opening up all over town, and judging by the rave reviews, Toronto has a lot of gastric respect for the new hamburger.
With so many options, and with the word “gourmet” being thrown around and landing on burgers where it might not belong, it’s tough to know where to go to get the best burger in Toronto.
Luckily, there’s a new burger review website and social rating tool for burgers in toronto. It’s called Burger Derby (burgerderby.com) and it’s the brainchild of a few Toronto burger enthusiasts who have adopted the life mission to find the city’s best hamburger.
At Burger Derby, individual burgers are reviewed. Rather than assigning just one rating to an entire restaurant, the expert burger reviewers and the community of site users assign ratings and reviews to the burgers themselves. Not only will you know where to get great burgers (locations of local joints are mapped), but you’ll know what the best thing on their menu is when you get there.
“Originally the idea of Burger Derby was just for us and our friends,” says Benjamin Allison, one of the creators of the burger website. “We were on a mission to find the best burger in Toronto. Then it occured to us that other people were looking for the same holy grail – so we built the Burger Derby website.”
Burger Derby is geared towards both casual burger lovers and real, hard core burger enthusiasts. After more and varied business management consulting the website developers have plans to move into the mobile sector, making it even easier for people to find the best burgers in Toronto, and rate them, on the go.
