Summer is here and that means sun, sand and patios. Boston Pizza has the best patios around, and now, with their new All-Start Burger Lineup, the best burgers too.
The crowning gem of the All-Start Lineup at Boston Pizza is the MVB (Most Valuable Burger). It consists of a 100% Canadian Beef patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, Canadian cheddar and their signature Cactus Dip all in a soft and sweet brioche bun.
I really liked the clean taste of the burger patty – it was seasoned just right so you can taste all that beef goodness. The sweetness of the brioche bun melted very well with the other flavours. Overall, this burger is simple, wholesome and delicious.
Other burgers in the line-up include the Spicy Perogy Burger, the Double Bacon BBQ Burger and the Pepperoni Bacon Pizzaburger. These are the must-try burgers this summer.
Other summer menu items include salads, shrimp tacos and flatbreads We tried the Asian Shrimp Salad and found it a fantastic deal for only $14.99; You get a lot of food (and a lot of shrimp!). This salad has a lot going on: edamame for an extra layer of texture and Asian noodles for crunch – all tossed in a savoury carrot ginger dressing.
We also ordered the Mediterranean Flatbread to go, but it was so good we ended up eating before we left the restaurant! It comes with Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, red onions and feta ($10.99).
Of course you’ll need something delicious to wash all this goodness down. I recommend Boston Pizza’s new Summers Quenchers. Made with only natural flavours, they are prepared fresh and made to order. They come in three flavours: Mango & Ginger, Black Raspberry, and Cucumber & Lime. The Black Raspberry was my favourite. (And I personally think that the Cucumber and Lime would be lovely with a tad of gin). Best part? these sparkling treats are only 45 calories a piece.
If you still have room for the dessert, the delicious Mini Dessert Burger is the perfect size to finish your meal. A sweet treat made with ice cream, chocolate ganache between two sweet potato buns and drizzled with warm caramel.
Boston Pizza is the perfect place to catch a game, have dinner with the family (the franchise is very kid friendly and I take my son there regularly), and having drinks and eats with friends on the patio. With several locations in the lower mainland, the perfect burger (or pizza) is close by!
