Among the three slips of paper that we had been granted, two were irregularly shaped and copper-toned, entitling one customer per table to either a tower of onion rings or a gourmet burger. The third was entirely void of hue and concealed in an envelope; the black and white slip read: "Congratulations! You've won a FREE BURGER with purchase of a Burger!".
Despite making our way through the foyer at approximately half past two, several of the tables were still occupied. The three members of wait-staff were evidently struggling to cater to various customer demands, as we were not acknowledged until a couple minutes later.
They were far from unfriendly though – I requested a window seat, and one of the girls gladly pulled apart and wiped down a large table bearing the battle scars of rowdy, under-5 diners.
Taking bacon to the next level, Six Degrees of K'vin Bacon was scandalously meat-heavy in contrast and comprised of layers upon layers of the thin crisps. Fresh Cut Fries accompanied this gourmet burger.
Other elements gave off a straightforward flavour: the beets tasted like beets and the cheese tasted like cheese, both as they should but with the addition of a small amount of seasoning. Cukes & Celery were, as predicted, of standard flavours.
Attention to detail is always an impression booster in my books. That being said, I definitely appreciated that an additional "!Allergy Peanuts!" command had been included during item entry when we informed of a peanut allergy at the table. (Most other restaurants would relay this by mouth, or sometimes forget to convey the message in its entirety.)
I would be extremely grateful if this issue is remediated upon my second visit, as I could have definitely done without the brute force exerted on my door handle by other impatient guests incompetent of utilizing common sense to decipher the fact that the bathroom door was locked for a reason.
Here’s to hoping that the future Port Credit location will be worth skipping The Burger's Priest for!
