ShuRaku Sake Bar & Bistro

833 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 1K7

Located downtown at Granville and Smithe, ShuRaku Sake Bar + Bistro is serving up a burger with a Japanese twist for this year’s festival. This truly one-of-a-kind meal – the ShuRaku rice burger – features sautéed slice rib eye with housemade barbecue sauce and panko-crumbed fried lotus roots with jalapeno and chili miso sauce. Note that the restaurant will only be serving this specialty burger at dinnertime.

East Side Craft House

1445 41st Ave E, Vancouver, BC V5P 1J8

Experience a little taste of Italy right here in Vancouver by snackin’ on the Little Italy burger at East Side Craft House. Savour the lean ground chuck and chorizo sausage patty, topped with Grana Padano cheese, sweet onion, red pepper relish, baby arugula and tomato on a garlic-toasted bun. Wash it down with one of the several craft beers the restaurant has on tap.

The Pie Hole

3497 Fraser St, Vancouver, BC V5V 4C3

Why is a pie shop participating in a burger festival, you ask? You’ll have to head to The Pie Shop in Fraserhood to find out. The chefs have combined two American favourites – cheeseburgers and pie – to create the bacon cheeseburger handpie. This savoury snack is made up of ground beef, cheddar béchamel sauce, dill pickles, cheddar cheese, onions, bacon and mustard baked in the shop’s original double butter pie crust.

Charqui Grill

1955 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1C9

This fun Kits restaurant (at Cornwall Avenue and Walnut Street) is a destination itself – always offering live music and karaoke. However, your trip to Charqui just got tastier with their special burger for this year’s festival – an Angus beef patty on a brioche bun, served with mushrooms, bacon and guacamole.

Relish Gourmet Burgers

2290 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5N 4B5

This Commercial Drive joint is serving up The Big Texas for this year’s nationwide celebration of burgers. This Texas-sized burger includes a AAA Angus beef or vegetarian patty, topped with smoky barbecue sauce, crispy onion frits, pepper jack cheese, crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato, garlic mayo and beet relish. Come hungry!

Fable Diner

6
151 Broadway E, Vancouver, BC V5T 1W1

Located in Mount Pleasant at Main and Broadway, this quaint diner will be offering a unique, delicious and Instagram-worthy burger for this year’s festival. Picture this: locally sourced beef paired with foie gras, a sunny side egg, housemade ‘beef dripping’ mayo, pickles and diced onions.
