Dot Com Burger

imgp0268.jpg

In honour of the iconic Wally’s Burgers closing its doors at the end of the month, it was decided to forgo our usual Dot Com Pho this week and have Dot Com Burger at Wally’s. Like usual, I arrived to see a line-up right up to the entrance door. In attendance were John Chow, Michael Kwan and his girl Susan, Stephen Fung, Ed Lau, Greg Morgan, Danny Chang and myself.

Luckily, the members of the Dot Com crew were already in line. I gave my order to Ed and sat down to save us a couple of tables. Unfortunately, Ed goofed up and forgot my order. I found this out after everybody else got their food and were already half finished :(

Stephen and I were already at Wally’s Burgers earlier in the week, and I had been trying to get him down the street to visit Tops Restaurant for their Super Burger. Tops has been around for as long as I can remember, although not as long as Wally’s Burgers, and is open 24/7 to satisfy your hunger anytime.

After finishing up our burgers at Wally’s we headed down the street (literally, Tops is over one block and across the street from Wally’s) and sat down for round two of Dot Com Burger. John and Danny weren’t up for the Super Burger but each opted for a soup instead. The rest of us braved the cholesterol count and dug into our Super Burgers. The Super Burger at Tops consists of two 5oz sirloin beef patties, a fried egg, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, pickles, real cheddar cheese, all sandwiched in between a sesame seed bun. The burger is easily bigger than my fist. Stephen is the only one to actually finish the whole burger, he’s got a wooden leg.

I also went for the homemade cappuccino milkshake, which was so thick it actually filled me up before I even started on my burger. At $12.99 (with your choice of sides), the Super Burger is a steep price but worth it as the occasional treat.

I never heard that one before. But hell, if you’re gonna go after girls that young then you have to accept some acne as part of the package.

Checking airfare prices….I need to get out there and challenge Stephen to an eating contest, lol.

I love seeing how the Dot Com Pho group continues to grow – and if you guys keep eating a double meal you will really begin to grow.

You should come up here to Vancouver for a visit. You can meet all of us for Dot Com Pho and take you out to some of our famous eateries. We’ll even throw in a colonoscopy before you head back home ;)

I was checking airfares as I would love to get up there for a visit. Direct flights into Vancouver were about $700 while 1+ stops was about $400-500. If I had the time to take off from work I would really like to make a road trip on the Harley out to Vancouver as I think that ride would be amazing.

Visiting Vancouver is now on my list of goals for 2008.

BTW, I’ll pass on the colonoscopy.

The burger looks so yummy…No restaurant around my home sells that burger. So, I guessI have to be satisfy with McDonalds.

Wow… that really looks good right now. Mr Bartley’s Burger in Boston (Cambridge) serves a similar burger if any of u visit that area.

Fried egg on a burger? Is that good? Bah! Why can’t my city have any legendary food places like this.
