So I decided to go get a burger for lunch today. I went to Vera’s Burger Shack. As you can see on their website, they’ve been voted as Vancouver’s best burger. I had the BBQ burger. Here are my comments.
Provolone: I was having a brain fart today because I thought that provolone was some type of bacon. It’s cheese. Never mind that calcium in general inhibits iron absorption, but baked or melted cheese tends to upset my stomach. So the burger’s now sitting in my stomach, feeling like a rock. Or maybe it’s the grease. Nevertheless, my tummy is unhappy, and that just takes away from the whole eating experience.
Price: it’s a good burger, but very pricy. For the amount of nutritional value that I’m getting from the burger, onion rings and Coke, I might as well gone to McDonalds. Okay, their burgers are not as good, but they are half the price.
Hubby refuses to go back there, after the couple of times he was served by “male airheads” (I believe those were his words.) I'm not certain if I want to go back there myself. The food expereience was okay at best, and the service tends to be very slow. Bah.
The upshot is that they gave me some free packets of ketchup for my condiment stash. This is a big commodity in around these parts as the hospital cafeteria only allows you 2 small packets of ketchup with your meal, any more you have to pay. Hey, 2 small packets of ketchup doesn't stretch very far.
