Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers and beverages at Burger Bar & Tequila Lounge, located in Kensington Market.
The burger artisans at Burger Bar & Tequila Tavern enhance naturally raised Ontario beef patties with gourmet fixings and a menu as eclectic as the Kensington Market neighbourhood. Accommodating cooks or hungry psychics customize each order so patrons can chow down on a traditional 6- or 8-ounce burger ($8; $10.50) upgraded with a slice of gruyere ($1.50) and spoonful of coriander pesto ($1) or crown the Wagyu Kobe beef patty ($16; $21) with a wreath of kimchi ($2). Fresh gluten-free bread may substitute for whole-wheat buns, and french fries continue their quest to finally eclipse sandwiches by arriving house-cut ($5), in sweet potato form ($5), or simmering under saag paneer ($9). Wash down any hearty entree with a seasonal concoction from Kensington Brewing Company, or try to recall the lyrics to La Bamba after sampling each of more than 10 tequilas.
