Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the new secret menu item at The Burger’s Priest

By now, pretty much everyone is well aware of The Burger’s Priest’s position at the top of the city’s burger totem pole. With two locations spinning out the goods (one east, one north), owner Shant Mardirosian isn’t stopping his domination any time soon; folks can expect to find new joints, well, just about everywhere in the not-so-distant future.

This week’s pick is the so-called Fiery Furnace burger ($11), a hot-off-the-presses addition to the secret menu that’s only posted online. Beginning with the ultra-premium beef that makes up all of the burgers (save for that vegetarian number), two meat patties are cooked to order on a flat top. Topped with American cheese and bacon, the lot is joined with mounds of cherry pepper compound butter, and it’s all tucked into a soft white bun.

If desired, other classic toppings are available (ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles and onion), but don’t even think of asking for relish.

Just remember: they’re closed on Sundays for church.

The Burger’s Priest, 1636 Queen St. E., 647-346-0617; 3397 Yonge St., 416-488-3510

The calories and fat are reasonable for a filling meal, but the sodium gives you three quarters of your daily intake in one sitting! Don’t go adding any kimchi fries on the side.

In Season: Mustard is more than just the top condiment at restaurants like Toronto’s Black Hoof

Canada is the world’s leading producer of mustard seeds. So this week, we’re veering west of Ontario to talk about how the yellow/honey/hot mustard plastered all over your late night hotdog (often my midday snack) probably started in the Prairies’ mustard fields.

Inside the world of AAA Bar, purveyor of Toronto’s most authentic Texas-style barbecue

Inside a corrugated tin lean-to near the corner of Gerrard and Broadview, you’ll find one of the most intense barbecue setups in the city. There, four Traeger grills operate nearly non-stop, slowly inundating beef, pork and chicken with oak smoke. Brisket and ribs emerge sheathed in crispy, candy-sweet bark, tinged deep pink beneath the surface.

Joanne Kates reboots her top 100 restaurants list for 2016

We saw this coming — tasty Toronto restos have been going relentlessly downscale for several years. The vast majority of this year’s terrific new restaurants are casual and cheap. They can’t be judged against white tablecloth temples of gastronomy
