My next stop was the "5 O'Clock Somewhere" at The Lobster House in Summerside.
7oz Island Beef Patty, Merlot Tomato Compote, Beer Battered Bacon, Goat Cheese, Port Caramelized Onions, Whiskey BBQ Sauce, Bourbon Apple Fennel Slaw, and Tequila Citrus Aioli on a Brioche Bun, garnished with Sweet Pickled Onion Gherkin Parasol.
This one set the bar pretty high, with deep fried beer battered bacon how could it not. Not usually a fan of goat cheese but there was only a little bit so wasn't overpowering.The whiskey BBQ sauce and the bourbon fennel slaw added a nice sweetness to the flavour.
My only (small) issue was that having the slaw under the burger made the bottom bun a little soggy, but overall a delicious burger and easily the clubhouse leader after 2 stops.
As we were leaving we suggested that after Burger Love that the Deep Fried Beer Battered Bacon should be an appetizer on its own, I'm sure we weren't the only ones suggesting it. So good, just on their own. Heard yesterday that this has already happened!! Will be back for an order of those for sure.
Who decides 2 put deep fried beer battered #bacon on a burger? A genius, that's who. @PEIBurgerLove #PEIBurgerLove pic.twitter.com/9P02tYKh9I— Rod Gallant (@Rod_Gallant) April 2, 2016
