On the lookout for great burgers. Vancouver, Vancouver Island and beyond.

Skol Pub. Gabriola Island, Canada
The Viking burger, a double slab monster, bacon, cheese, sautéed mushrooms, more raw onions (nice touch), pickles tomatoes, lettuce and a mayo dressing.
I'm going to call this the "so close yet so far burger"
Here's the thing; Replace the whole wheat bun with a nice white toasted sesame seed bun. Are you kidding me? This burger has enough cholesterol to kill a white lab mouse instantly dead and it comes with a whole wheat bun. I shake my head.
Take the two tasteless salty pieces of previously frozen meat like product and replace it with a nice 8 oz, fresh natural ground, cooked to a perfect pink centre. Then put it all together, forget this open faced presentation stuff. Wrap the burger in a burger diaper and bingo an instant winner. The Viking burger could be close to a 10 but sadly currently a 6/10. Once again a very mediocre burger while waiting on a ferry.
