It’s been pretty gloomy lately in Vancouver so I've been craving for something hardy and comforting. I've been to Burgoo twice but it was always at their Main Street location, and that was probably a good two or three years ago. So D and I decided to check out Burgoo in Kitsilano for a nice hardy meal.
What I love about the Kitsilano location is their interior. I absolutely love all the wood they used, it just felt so nice and cozy! After looking at the menu I ordered the Mac 'n' Cheese and the Butternut Squash soup. D being the more adventurous diner decided to try Burgoo's Soup of the Day which was a Split Pea soup with Spinach and Mint. He also ordered the Burgoo Clubhouse sandwich, which consists of roast chicken, bacon, tomato and cucumbers with a house made onion marmalade, served open faced on toasted filone bread. The Butternut Squash soup was pretty tasty, but I think the consistency of the soup was a little bit on the heavy side for my liking. I got a chance to steal a few spoonful’s of D's Split Pea Soup with Spinach and Mint and surprisingly it was pretty good (wish I'd ordered that). I thought his soup was going to taste very minty and gritty because of the spinach and the mint leaves but it didn't. D's soup was savoury and had just the right amount of earthiness to it. My Mac 'n' Cheese was very cheesy, and I am the type of person who would eat anything that's smothered in cheddar so no complaints there.
Now, the funny thing about D is that apparently he's a very picky eater. When his Clubhouse sandwich arrived I watched him eat the roast chicken, bacon, tomato, and cucumbers off the toasted filone and that was it. I asked him how come he's not eating the bread, and his answer was because there's onions touching the filone bread. Ha! D, you might as well have ordered a salad. Anyways, now I know to never share a French onion soup with him.
