7 WTF Burgers You Have To Try During Montreal's Burger Week 2019

There are no losers on this list.
7 WTF Burgers You Have To Try During Montreal's Burger Week 2019
  • Between September 1 and 7, 2019, Le Burger Week will showcase some of the most creative burger creations in the city.
  • Here are some of the most jaw-dropping burgers that Burger Week participants should try if they dare!

September is full of images of back to school, the beginning of cooler weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and stuffing your face for one straight full week with the most ridiculously gluttonous burgers ever to be put on a plate. 

That's right. It's Le Burger Week in Montreal. That magical time from September 1-7, when participating Montreal restaurants will create a signature burger that is supposed to best reflect their cuisine but is usually more of a cheesy, gooey competition of how much fried decadence you can shove between two buns.

Restaurants will then compete for one of the crown titles like Most Popular Burger, Healthiest Burger, or Best Looking Burger. Burger-lovers vote for their favourite but if the judges don't agree, there is also a Judges Choice title winner.  

With so many restaurants taking part, and so many amazing (and sometimes terrifying) choices we took a look at some of the crazier burger creations that we would be more than willing to try.

We narrowed it down to seven, which wasn’t easy. But that leaves us with a doable burger a day for a week. Here are the seven most ridiculous burgers based on nothing other than they elicited a 'wtf' comment.

Rosélys: The Tasty Tongue Burger

Le Burger Week

Cost: $33

Address: 900 Boulevard René-Lévesque O.

The burger that can taste you back. It's a braised beef tongue burger, with foie gras escalope, coleslaw, and crispy pickles.


La Belle et La Boeuf: The Black Widow

Le Burger Week

Cost: $19.95

Address: 510 Promenade Du Centropolis, Laval

I love everything about this burger. I have no idea what a 'charcoal activated crust' is, but it comes with one along with Saputo cheddar, smoked bacon center cut, spicy Sriracha, mustard, and beer sauce.


Z Tapas Lounge: Quesadelvi

Le Burger Week

Cost: $19

Address: 1165 Boul. St-Laurent

There is so much going on here. It's a beef burger between two tortilla shells that are held together by bacon, jalapeño jam, cheese mixture, garlic and pickle mayonnaise, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and topped off with a fried avocado.


Hachoir: Double Pepperoni & Cheese

Le Burger Week

Cost: $18

Address: 4177 Rue Saint-Denis

This is one of the burgers that takes a moment of quiet while you figure out exactly how you're going to bite into it. There are two beef patties, tomato sauce, mozzarella, smoked mozzarella, pepperoni, homemade pickled banana pepper all served on focaccia bread.


Table 51: The Village Burger

Le Burger Week

Cost: $22

Address: 5475 Rue des Jockeys

It's great when a burger is also shoved with three other courses. Held together by flat bread, this is ground lamb burger is also stuffed home fries, roasted red pepper and feta cheese spread, and jalapeño poppers stuffed with red pepper and feta cheese spread. Yes, please.


Lola Rosa: The Oktoberfest

Le Burger Week

Cost: $16

Address: 4581 Ave. du Parc

Start practicing for Oktoberfest with this Schnitzel burger inside a bretzel bun. It's topped with sauerkraut, Bavarian mustard sauce, dill pickles, arugula and fresh tomatoes.


Le Birdbar: Le Hot Chick

Le Burger Week

Cost: $22

Address: 1800 Rue Notre-Dame O.

This Texan hot fried chicken sandwich looks spicy. It comes with Saputo mozzarella, red cabbage slaw, fried onions, house-made pickles, lettuce & Texan sauce mayo dip.


That's it. A burger a day for a week. That is a challenge I can accept. Don't forget to vote for your favorite at Le Burger Week.
