Michelle and I like to go on some pretty epic adventures when we get together. I thought we were getting together for brunch. Turns out, she wanted to go for burgers at The Burger’s Priest! Burgers for breakfast? Why not?!
I would have taken photographs of the interior but original The Burger’s Priest on Queen is tiny! It is a place to order your burger and then either inhale it on one of the stools or take it to go.
The menus is extremely blasphemous and the staff are very accommodating. I wanted the High Priest Burger but not with two patties. Michelle ordered a unique version of Vatican City.
Turns out they have their own secret menu too! I love it when a place is not afraid to play with its food in such a fun and creative way.
My one patty burger was baptized the “Low Priest”.
OK, I will admit, I was hoping for a more miraculous look to the burger, LOL. It seemed so tiny and ordinary but the flavour? Incredible! Could you ever taste the quality of beef in that burger. Damn!!!
Michelle’s burger had two patties AND a grilled cheese sandwich in the middle!!! Crazy, I know!
My blasphemous breakfast did not stop there! I also had a Coffee Crisp Milkshake! A mocha shake with vanilla ice cream. Holy Hell!
Michelle got a rootbeer float to go with her burger/grilled cheese monstrosity! After we ate and talked and talked… we were out of there.
On The Road
The Burger’s Priest was so tiny there was not a washroom and we were going on a road trip so we stopped by Starbucks, freshened up and then buckled up!
Port Credit & Tiny Rockin Kitchen
From there we drove out to Port Credit to see Michelle’s beauty on the water. She bought a boat! Not only a boat, Michelle is going to be sailing the world starting the fall of 2017.
I had heard so much about her boat! I wanted to check it out but the hard part was getting into it! You see, when we arrived, there were no stairs.
Undaunted, Michelle climbed into the boat, refastened the stairs so I could finally descend into its hull.
It is being completely redone for the big adventure so you have to use your imagination a little but here is Michelle in her galley/kitchen! When she launches she is going to keep a food blog about her adventures on her site Tiny Rockin Kitchen! (Website to come.)
But did our adventure stop there? Hell no! We hit the 400 and started going north and yes, past Canada’s Wonderland. I hardly recognized it! Those are all new rollercoasters since I was an usher there when I was 16. Crazy!
I am so glad we got to go for a drive outside the city. Growing up in Toronto, I always loved the stunning rural Ontario landscape.
Less than an hour later we were at The Club Bond Head close to Aurora.
Did we feel like golfing? Not quite. Although I can see why people come here to golf, it is stunning!
Nope. We were there to see our dear friend Chef Steve! Can you tell we adore each other?
We did not have a lot of time but we did get to see around the golf club, catch up a little and Steve even made us some food. OK, can I swoon now? Shrimp and scallops with rice noodles, red peppers in a wine and lemon cream sauce. Steve is truly a master with food, as well as being an incredible guy.
By the time the sun was setting Michelle and I were back on the road. I wish I could say it was smooth sailing back into the city but it ended up being a traffic nightmare. Still, what a perfect day it was together.
We realized that this was probably the last time we would see each other for years and years which breaks my heart. I am so glad we made the most of it. From burgers for breakfast, to sailboats, an autumnal drive and seeing friends one last time, I worked my ass off to get every last drop of goodness from my trip to Toronto.
