Portabello mushroom burger?

I used to get these from Bamburger which is no more, Anyone know of good places, preferably in central Toronto?

  1. Not sure of a place, but they are incredibly easy to make...
    We usually just have them at home. No sure I have ever had them out, come to think of it

        I don't think the type of portobello burger that BP sells is what she's looking for. I love portobello burgers too, but the mere idea of the BP portobello burger makes me nauseous.

        BQM does a portobello burger. It's called "the ossington". Here is a link to the menu.

          Thanks---but are you sure it's just the mushroom? It looks like it's mushroom and meat (one of 3 meat choices)? The veggie section doesn't include plain mushroom.

          1. re: Ediblethoughts

            I'm almost positive that you can get it on its own. At least that was the case @ the ossington location a few years ago.

      2. Great Burger Kitchen did a great one. Haven't been in a while, though, so you may want to call to check if it's still an option.

          Looking at the website menu, it doesn't look like they have one now..

          1. re: Ediblethoughts

            I just called the Gerrard location and they said the fabulous portobello Brie burger is still available. I highly highly recommend it!

              Thanks for checking! Noted for future...

        2. You can try W Burger Bar right at Yonge and College. They have both a portobello mushroom burger grilled like a regular burger and a veggie burger option too.

          The Works also seems to offer a portobello cap mushroom as a "patty"option, in addition to a gourmet veggie patty. Haven't tried it so can't comment.

          Interestingly, Stockyards also does a vegetarian portobello mushroom burger.

          Holy Chuck has one too but like Burger's Priest, is deep fried (but tasty!)

            W burger bar makes the BEST veggie burgers ever! A little messy, but amazing!! That said, I haven't tried the portobello burger, but if I'd have high hopes for it given how good the veggie burger is.

            1. re: bluefirefly

              I actually did try Burger Bar on the weekend and it was good. I will keep the Works in mind for sure. I like to sit and eat in for the most part though so Stockyards probably not an option. I've seen Burger Priest. I am flummoxed by it...

            2. Baton Rouge has this but with other veggies, never had it though
