What once was YYC Burger Week (2013 & 2014) has now grown to be Alberta Burger Fest with 4 contributing areas: Calgary, Edmonton, Banff/Canmore, and Southern Alberta towns. Each restaurant that is participating is competing to win best burger, and while they are at it, raising money for Alberta-based charities; 10% of every burger you buy goes to charity. That’s more than enough reason to try out some of Alberta’s best burgers. Alberta Burger Fest runs from May 1 -10 so you have a few more days to get in on the burger goodness.
Some of the restaurants participating are The Living Room, Midtown Kitchen,and Wurst. For the full list in Calgary, click here. I will not be able to get to all the burgers (obviously) but I will let you know which ones I try. Share your recommendation for me and other readers to try! Use the hashtag #ABBurgerFest to share your feast and get entered into the contest.
This burger was unreal; seriously, top 5 best burgers I have ever had. Naturally raised beef & pork, topped with pulled pork, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and this amazing jalapeno sauce – to die for. The jalapenos add a little kick to the tender meat. It is massive though, definitely bring a friend to share!
Overall rating: 10/10
Eat all the burgers.
