Earls. Port Coquitlam BC Canada
Earls has, for the time being, redeemed themselves. The last burger I had at Earls in Chilliwack was a terrible disappointment. This is a major turn around.
The Bronx Burger (I didn’t know the Bronx was famous for their burgers?) is a half pound patty, 3 beer battered onion rings stacked high, roasted garlic aioli, red pepper relish, aged white cheddar, rocket and the bun made fresh from scratch everyday.
This is a solid 8.5/10 burger. How could it not be? Bake your own bread everyday, most outstanding. And the bun was just the right size for the 8 ounce patty which was perfectly chard on the outside, semi perfect on the inside and had great flavour. The standout for me was the addition of the rocket. It added a nice bitter component to the combined symphony of flavours from all of the other ingredients.
Surprisingly, you would think that the beer battered onion rings would add some crunchy texture to the party but they turned mushy and greasy. This part of the burger needs a rethink.
Earls is batting 500, lets see what the next one has to offer. Stay tuned.
