Burger 55, The Smokin' Buddha, Icehouse
John Catucci asked for your recommendations and now he’s arrived at your favourite restaurants for another Fan Fave Edition of You Gotta Eat Here! Super fan Tracy Reis wrote in about burger customization at Burger 55 in Penticton, BC. She said, “You can build your own burger by choosing from a gazillion ingredients!” With wacky toppings like grilled peaches and drunken onions, it’s enough to make a host sing its praises. Next stop is The Smokin’ Buddah where it’s a culinary world tour without leaving the comfort of Port Colborne, ON. Fan Rick Sheppard tells us, “Chef Kevin Echlin is really doing something different over there!” and John discovers a restaurant of exotic flavours – without the annoying tourists. John ends his journey by accepting an invitation from fan Lori Kay, “Montreal’s Icehouse – You Gotta Eat Here!” So he did! And discovers a super southern-styled gem where crispy fried chicken comes in what else, a bucket!
