Bacchus Restaurant and Lounge, Vancouver BC, Canada

Everything about the Bacchus Lounge screams upper crust. The grand bar, the Relais & Chateaux sign at the front door, the high back plush clubish super comfortable chairs, private big money clubby. There is Pamela Martin having lunch with Wally Oppal. Very curious what they are chatting about? Is Pamela still working for Christy Clarke?

I'm here with a couple of friends for lunch. I'm going to be pedestrian and order the burger. My friends choose the fancy stuff.

The burger:

Grilled “AAA” 8oz Sirloin Burger: red onion marmalade, 3 year old aged white cheddar, parmesan and truffle aioli

Really, there was truffle in the mayo? This burger is all about the patty. Tremendous beef flavor, juiciness, thickness, pinkness. One of the best patties I’ve had in a long time. Overall I'm giving the burger a 9/10, just a few shortcomings nothing even worth mentioning. I don't know why I didn't add bacon to this burger, I could very well have covered up the shortcomings and propel this burger to a ten.

And in case you’re interested this is the fancy food my friends ordered:

Avocado and Shrimp Salad

Lamb Shank and Smoked Duck Pasta
