      Try it. It's a very homey, very neighborhood, very hip place. Breakfast ok, lamburger excellent, frites great too.


    2. I've heard good reviews of the lamb burger at L'Anecdote, but never tried it myself.

      L'Anecdote is at 801 Rachel Est (at St-Hubert).

      1. I had a yummy lamburger with sheep cheese at L'Amère a Boire (2049 St-Denis) a few weeks ago. I'd definitely order it again.

          Thanks for the heads-up, mainsqueeze. Was in the Latin Quarter this afternoon and dropped by L'Amèreàboire for lunch (the kitchen is closed from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. by the way). A plump puck of flavourful, coarsely ground, medium-fat lamb grilled to a crispy char on the outside, pale pink on the indside, sitting on a ciabatta-like bun, garnished with Dijon mustard, lettuce, chèvre frais and a slice of marinated red bell pepper: juicy perfection, by far the best resto burger I've had in ages. What's more, it comes with the incalculable advantage of being orderable with a pint of Cerna Hora, the hoppy, Czech-style pilsner that, despite not getting much buzz, is one of the city's -- if not the country's -- top brews. Other burgers on the menu include vege, beef and rabbit (!), all of which I'm now curious to try, though it will be hard to resist the siren call of that juicy little lambkin.

          1. re: carswell

            My friends ordered the beef and the rabbit burgers, but we were all in agreement that the lamb was the best of all. Glad you liked it too!

        2. Are lamburgers commonplace in Quebec province? I live south of your border, where they are all but unheard of. I grill my own, with a garlic powder and rosemary powder dusting. Ground lamb plumps up much more than beef, and takes a bit longer to cook, but otherwise it's as simple. I usually make a bed of Boston lettuce and a very thin slice of purple onion, and a little mint sauce. The spinach and feta sounds good.

          1. re: Veggo

            I see lamb burgers on menus quite often, Perhaps it's because we have a decent sized Middle-Eastern population here and that ground lamb is readily available.

            1. re: SnackHappy

              I too see lamb burgers all the time (I'm in BC)
              I make my own with garlic and parsley and then top with Tzatziki (instead of Mayo on the bun) Lettuce, tomato, thin red onion and a spot of Dijon. mmmmm Lamb burgers for dinner me thinks. :)
