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 $11, you get a Hamilton Street burger (a $16 value) and a pint of R&B Brewing Co. beer (a $6 value) at Hamilton Street Grill in Yaletown (a $22 total value).
Named one of Vancouver's best burgers by Vancouver Magazine, Hamilton Street Grill sates hungry stomachs with fire-fresh offerings, including its eponymous burger crafted from house-ground, certified Angus beef. Chefs artfully bedizen succulent patties with a tongue-pleasing trio of house-smoked bacon, aged cheddar, and truffle mayonnaise. Kennebec frites, made from freshly cut potatoes, accompany the baronial burgers and assist them with their ceremonial robes. Give overworked mandibles a break while sipping on a pint of locally brewed R&B Brewing Co. beer, which comes in a variety of flavours, from a medium-bodied bohemian lager to a clear, crisp Sun God wheat ale. Groupon holders may opt to replace the pint with pop, tea, or coffee. Housed in a spacious converted warehouse, diners can sample these potables and comestibles amid the dark, sleek ambience of the dining room or al fresco on a heated patio surrounded by verdant plants and a protective moat.
Hamilton Street Grill
Although the quaint streets of Yaletown emanate the vibe of unhurried contentment, the kitchen in Hamilton Street Grill is hustling and bustling under the direction of owner and head chef Neil Wyles. He helms a skilled kitchen crew as they dart about the kitchen, whipping up a menu of certified Angus-beef steaks, fresh BC seafood dishes, and the house-ground char-grilled burgers that have won praise from Vancouver magazine. The dining room, which reflects the slower pace of the shop-lined street outside, boasts cushy booths, rich oak accents, and exposed yellow brick reminiscent of industrial warehouses and Oz’s municipal trucking route.
