Well, what can I say? I’m not really a burger person, usually. But Uli’s in White Rock (right on that main street along the water, with the pier visible) has me rethinking that stance.
Mind you, to lump it in the same category as all the other burgers out there is not only an injustice…it’s a little bit ludicrous.
The ridiculously good food I had
So my charming dining companion and I shared two burgers:
1) the Uli’s burger — the burnt onion relish and smoked cheddar convinced me that said dining companion was correct — this place has a tasty burger.
2) Uli’s burger Version 2.0 — I think I went into my own little world for a minute. I actually wanted to be alone with this burger for a few minutes. As if the garlic aioli, candied shallots and creme de Paris (herbed butter made, apparently, from 27 ingredients and based on an old French recipe) weren’t enough, the way the juice from the sirloin patty soaked into the bun just blew my mind.
It keeps getting better — summer can’t come soon enough for this sun-hater
I am going back. No question. And in summer, they carry Fruli, one of my favourite beers in the entire world, on draft. It’s Belgian and made from strawberries.
Version 2.0, Fruli, patio, view and captivating company — sounds like a good summer awaits.
I’m not alone in loving these burgers
If you don’t believe me, check this out. Uli’s holds the title of best burger. Here’s a contest for which I would not mind being a judge…providing, of course, the other burgers can even hold a candle to these ones. I’m doubtful though.
