Triple O’s new burger and milkshake offerings are all about awesome combinations. The Triple O’s kitchen have come up with a Poutine Burger and a Salted Caramel Pretzel Milkshake and both are must try items! The burger is the classic patty with Triple O’s sauce, bacon and chipotle mayo along with poutine served with a side of gravy. This is a 4 napkin burger easily with the gravy from the poutine getting everywhere when you take a bite, it’s obviously heavy but the chipotle mayo helps cut the richness and add smoky flavor. The cheese curds were completely melted as expected but they did add a great cheese element to the burger. Eating the fries in the burger was something different for sure with it definitely being very filling. The gravy on the side for me was overkill and I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do with it-dipping my burger wasn’t an option or needed.
To wash down your poutine burger or any of Triple O’s burgers the new Salted Caramel Pretzel Milkshake hit’s the spot. The combination of sweet and salty is huge right now but this is the 1st time I’ve heard of pretzel being used in a milkshake. The milkshake had more of a butterscotch flavor to it rather than salted caramel but it was still enjoyable. The winner for me was the pretzel pieces, they were small enough to pass through the straw and they retained texture while drinking the whole milkshake. Flavor wise they did add a salty note and also a slight toasty hint when eating the bits. This milkshake comes in at just under $6 and is available till October 27, 2013.
If you like comfort food or outrageous burgers I’d say that both of these items are worth a try. Availability wise I would think the menu items are only in British Columbia but I’ll update the post if I hear different.
