Fring's

A friend from out of town was in Toronto for a bit and wanted to try out Fring's (so here we are!)

Ceviche
Really yummy and a lot of bright and vibrant flavours.

Mushroom toast
Yummy (but not easily divisible between 5 people)

So pretty!

Sweet and sour meatballs
I wasn't really a fan of this - the sweet and sour flavours made it a little too tangy.

Beef Short rib
Super tender and melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness! We basically tried to scrape every last bit of this out of the bowl.

Burger special with fries (and garlic mayo on the side)
Really juicy burger on a fluffy egg-bun and loaded with some of their specialty toppings. Yummy!

I've passed by the W Burger Bar quite often, but for some reason I just never really had the chance to try it out until now.

Turkey Burger with Greek Salad
I decided to go for the special (so I didn't have to do any strenuous thinking at lunch) and I thought I was in the clear until the waitress asked me what I wanted on my burger and directed me to the toppings menu.
Yikes! That's a pretty long list.
Turkey Burger with alfalfa sprouts, garlic herb mayo, ketchup, lettuce, sauteed onions and tomatoes
Garlic Herb Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Lettuce, Sauteed Onions, Tomatoes and Alfalfa Sprouts is what I ended up getting with a turkey burger on a whole wheat bun. Yum! This turned out really well, the turkey burger was spiced and pretty meaty and I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the way all the ingredients were put into my burger (I did miss the cheese, but I didn't know how it'd go with the garlic mayo. The Greek salad was an extra $2 and it was just drenched in dressing and was really salty.

Overall: Good burgers and fast service - definitely one of those gourmet burger joints. It's a nice treat every once in a while.
