Lamb burgers vs. Hamburgers

There are literally thousands of hamburger restaurants in Toronto but how many places serve lamb burgers? True burger connaisseurs know that lamb burgers offer a taste experience that hamburgers cannot match. Where can you find lamb burgers in GTA?

  1. holy chuck's 'greek bahahastard' is a double lamb patty burger. . .enjoyed this a month ago, but didn't find it better than their beef burgers. . .

    on the other hand, i recently had the lamb burger at the breslin in nyc, and i have to say, you may have a point. it was possibly the best burger i've ever eaten.

    1. Le Select does a killer lamb burger.

        +1 for Le Select. I find most other things there overpriced...but I'll gladly pay $15 for their lamburger.

          I love Le Select's lamb burger ... moroccan spicing!!!

          I've never seen anyone mention Utopia on College but they also do a pretty good burger (lamb and otherwise). They also have a lamb and brie wrap that I can't seem to resist.

            I forgot about Utopia. Their lamb burger is really good.

            I don't care for their sides :(

            But yes, good lamb burger.

        2. I know Great Burger Kitchen on Gerrard serves lamb burgers. Never had one but if they're anything like their beef burgers I'm in! Great stuff.

          1. la societe has one on the menu.

            1. FWIW, you can get a lamb burger at Summerville Market in Rosedale during the summer. They have a grill set up outside selling burgers. I've had it and it was tasty.


              1. Big Smoke Burger has a lamb burger. I can't attest to how good it is because I can't tear myself away from the Organic Beef Burger, but their signature burger is similarly excellent.

                1. I actually really like the one at O&B

                  1. I have had them many times, I really liked the last one I had at Biff's for lunch. I like the taste of merguez spices (usually in merguez sausages made from lamb) and experimented last fall making merguez lamb burgers. They were very good! Sobey's seem to have ground lamb pretty much all the time so I keep trying changing the spice mix. They are good but occasionally it is really good.

                    1. Have had them as specials at Allen's and Utopia.

                      1. C'est What pub at Church and Front St East has had a lamb burger for decades, long before the current burger trend. I know some people swear by it, though I've never tried it myself. But the food in general at C'est What has been quite good the last year or so, they went through a slump a few years back but it seems they turned things around. It's best to visit around lunch or on a weekday, though, not on a Fri or Sat evening when it gets quite chaotic with the bar scene.

                        1. Side note, anyone know of a place that serves a lamb burger stuffed with feta?

                          1. Not GTA, but the Lamblicious at Chuck's Burger Bar in Hamilton is my favourite. It has swiss cheese, sautéed wild mushrooms and onions, and roasted garlic mayo.
