The First Annual Leaside #BurgerBattle!!

Let the battle begin!  The first ever Leaside Burger Battle is on!

From August 11 to August 25, 2014

Seven restaurants in the Leaside community will be competing to win the title of ‘Best Leaside Burger.’ The burger competitors are: Against The Grain Urban Tavern, Grilltime, McSorley’s Saloon and Grill, Originals Bar, Shoeless Joe’s, South St. Burger Co., and The Leaside Pub.

Throughout the two week Burger Battle, the community is invited to visit the seven participating restaurants to eat, vote and support their hood. A dollar from every ‘Leaside Burger’ sold will be donated to SickKids Foundation in memory of Georgia Walsh.

Andy Elder, owner of Grilltime in Leaside, came up with the #BurgerBattle as a way to connect the neighbourhood. “Leaside is a tight knit community filled with great families and great restaurants,” said Elder. “The Burger Battle brings the two together for a fun end of summer celebration.”

Meet the Leaside Burgers!

Against the Grain Urban Tavern
8 oz. all natural beef patty stuffed with mixed cheddar and jalapenos, topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion and finished with a deep fried pickle.

6 oz. patty of ground brisket topped with double smoked cheddar cheese, peameal bacon jam, Neal Brothers Foods sriracha mayo, and pickled red onions served on a COBS hamburger bun.

McSorley’s Saloon and Grill (on South Bayview!)
6 oz. fresh ground chuck burger that’s mustard seared and griddle smashed! It’s topped with house made gherkin mayo, peameal bacon, sliced tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, fresh arugula, cheese curds & piled high with dusted onions, served on a toasted buttery sesame seed egg bun.

Originals Bar (on South Bayview!)
7 oz. 100% prime rib beef, built with Guinness smoked bacon, hickory BBQ sauce, sautéed mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, onion rings, hothouse tomatoes and lettuce. Served with a dill pickle on the side.

Shoeless Joe’s
sautéed mushrooms, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, baby arugula and goat cheese served on a toasted brioche bun.

South St. Burger Co.

The Leaside Pub
A house-seasoned all-beef burger topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickle, and cheddar cheese.

The winning restaurant will earn bragging rights and the title of ‘Best Leaside Burger.’ To join the conversation on Twitter please follow @LSBurgerBattle and use the hashtag #BurgerBattle.
