Hamburgers are modelled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy for two with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of burgers and fries at Gourmet Burger Co., located in Newmarket.
Gourmet Burger crafts its succulent hamburgers from fresh, farm-raised Canadian beef and tops them with an array of house-made sauces prepared with fresh ingredients. The menu's wide selection of signature burgers includes the renowned Aussie burger ($8.50), one of Now magazine's 2009 picks for Best Burger, and the colossal double cheeseburger ($9.95), which bears two 6-ounce patties and two types of cheddar and is fluent in two languages. The kitchen can slather their offerings with a staggering assortment of complimentary sauces, such as the house GBC sauce, tangy barbecue, and a savoury mayo with roasted garlic and dijon mustard. Guests can also bedeck their patties with tasty toppings such as beets, avocados, and relish. Hand-cut sweet-potato fries ($2.95) slip snugly onto the side of packed plates. While sampling these comestibles, diners can quaff Old Style milkshakes ($3.50), loaded with two scoops of premium ice cream, or tuxedo-clad gourmet sodas from Jones ($2.50).
