Indulgent burgers in Toronto sometimes come with a hefty price tag. Others let you devour an ungodly number of calories. These burgers are next level and feature premium toppings, like truffles or foie gras, or they're stacked so high that you'll barely be able to stretch your fingers around the bun.
Here are the most indulgent burgers in Toronto.
The Holy Duck at Holy Chuck's
The local burger chain is home to this decadent creation featuring a single beef patty topped with a slab of seared foie gras, double-smoked bacon, white truffle oil, maple syrup and freshly shaved white truffles for good measure.
The Canadiana at Shamrock Burgers
At $12.99, this burger won't break the bank, but by eating you'll exceed your caloric intake for the day, and maybe even for the week. The 8-ounce patty comes on a bun with saucy pulled pork, peameal bacon, strip bacon, crispy fried onions and poutine.
The Double Jackpot at Toma Burger Addiction
On Queen West, ultra luxe toppings like foie gras, truffle mayo, cremini mushrooms, caramelized onions, double smoked bacon, swiss cheese, arugula, balsamic glaze and truffle oil all land on this burger built on a soft, fluffy house-baked milk bun.
The Frenchie Burger at Cafe Boulud
World-renowned chef Daniel Boulud does his take on the American classic with this 7-ounce burger ($25) dressed with Morbier cheese, dijon mustard, pork belly, tomato-onion compote and arugula on a black pepper bun.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse at Burger's Priest
Instead of buns, two grilled cheese sandwich surround two patties and two panko-crusted cheese-stuffed mushrooms with all the fixins' on this secret-menu monstrosity.
The Double Pancake Pork Burger at Lisa Marie
Visit during the day to experience this brunch burger ($17) like no other. This massive morning feast features two 4-ounce pork burger patties stacked between pancake buns topped with lettuce, cheese and tomatoes and served with a side of maple syrup to douse over top.
The Classic at Bymark
A $38 burger better be indulgent. This creation from Mark McEwan's Financial District restaurant features Brie de Meaux, shaved truffles and grilled porcini mushrooms atop an 8-ounce beef patty.
The Bombolone Burger at Bar Buca
This rare beef and lardo burger ($14) is somewhat refined compared some of the beasts on this list. Even still, this is one crave-worthy creation dressed in rosemary olive oil zabaglione and topped with cured tomatoes and radicchio.
Surf & Turf Burger at Smash Kitchen & Bar
For a seafood topped burger ($19), head to Markham where this double patty is layered along with a deep fried seafood cake and topped with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and basil aioli.
The House Burger at La Societe
You'd expect to find luxurious burgers near Mink Mile in Yorkville. Caramelized onions, truffles and gruyere are what puts this burger ($23) over the top.
