"Big Red" - PEI Burger Love 2017 - Part 1

Stop #1 of the 2017 tour.

So it begins, this year for PEI Burger Love there are a record 84 beefy creations to try across our great Island.

A group of us from work normally go out to lunch at the West End Grill every Friday so we figured it would be a good place to start this year.

The "Big Red" consists of 6 oz Island Beef Patty, Sun-Dried Tomato Aioli, Smoked Bacon, Aged White Cheddar, Tomato Peach Chutney, White Balsamic Vinaigrette, tossed Arugula on a toasted Brioche Bun.

The burger was cooked well, slightly juicy and thick. There weren't any overpowering flavours, but also none that stood out. It was a good burger but not one that I would need to try again. I tend to feel a bit bad for the 1st one I try each year as I tend to stand it up against the best one from the year before. In this case it's a couple of notches below.

On the plus side, the price point of under $14 including a side will help bring people in to try it out.
