Chris & I were off to enjoy yet another glorious evening out in Vancouver this summer. We had tickets to go to a Vancouver Canadian baseball game (where, apparently we were unlucky charms as their winning streak came to an abrupt end with them loosing 9-2 against the Aquasox!), but first we wanted to get some dinner!
We’d never been to Splitz Grill before – though the set up reminded me a bit of a Lick’s burger place in Ontario (though with less singing!). First you order your burger and meal options with the cashier, then follow your tray down the way where a ridiculous number of topping options are available for your sandwich.
We had a bit of an issue with my order – I had ordered a Lamb Burger, which doesn’t get cooked on the same grill as the other burgers, so the folks behind me got taken care of first – this got my toppings ignored, and then assembled on someone else’s bun. This got fixed quickly, but was a bit of a headache. Anyhow, on to the food!
This was a huge meal – the fries you see up front were great; cut thick with skins on, they were nice and crispy. The gravy which was an extra $1.75 was worth it in my books – dark and meaty, it went super well with the fries. The burger itself was pretty good; the lamb had a good strong flavour, and the fresh toppings (including tatziki, sprouts, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, etc.).
I also tried a bit of Chris’ Legendary Splitz Burger – it was definitely great – much juicier than my lamb burger, and super meaty too. I think his burger was better, though I was happy with my order too. Both burgers were a mess to eat – toppings and sauces falling all over the place. This is definitely a “to stay” burger, not something you’d want to risk eating in your car!
