Project Burger Baron: High Park

The Burger Baron north of Edmonton's High Park district (specifically 152 street and 111 avenue) claims to produce the best mushroom burgers in town - but I hate mushrooms, so today I sampled the Gourmet Burger, which features ham, bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheese and "our special red sauce." It's not a bad burger at all, but I'd still rather visit the Leduc Burger Baron thanks to the quality of that location's hand-cut fries. The fries here are of the "I suspect these are just the frozen fries you get at Safeway" variety - blech.

Not long ago this location used to claim they made "authentic Halifax donairs," but I didn't see the sign this time and it seems as though ownership may have changed recently - a common phenomenon for this quirky pseudo-chain.

I love donairs! I found that donairs in the Atlantic provinces replace tzatziki with honey mayonnaise. It's very sweet. I don't know if you'd like that in a donair.

Truthfully, its not bad, but I prefer the more traditional gyro.

I like a good donair every once in a while, but oddly enough the sauce is the least appealing part. Perhaps I should try the Halifax variety.
