Burgoo (Point Grey): Comfort Food
Burgoo is the place to go to when you’re craving some real comfort food. Pretty much everything on their menu spells out dishes that warm and fill your belly like mac & cheese and chicken pot pie. They don’t just focus on one region of cuisine either… they have Mexican, Thai, French, British, American, etc… as long as it’s comfort food, you’ll find it here. While they have 5 locations around town, this visit was to their Point Grey location on W 10th Ave.
We wound up ordering the Beef Bourguignon ($18) prepared with red wine braised beef, caramelized pearl onions, carrots, and mushrooms. With a type of stew like this, you need some type of carb to pair it with and we opted with their Homestyle Mashed Potatoes ($4). Next, we added the Kentucky Burgoo ($16.50) made with slow-cooked lamb, beef, smoked ham, lima beans, corn, molasses, tomato, okra and served with a warm white cheddar and parsley biscuit. For an additional $6, we got another 4 biscuits and it was well worth it. We added a Burgoo Lemonade ($3.25) and a Tall Mango Cooler ($3.95) to complete our meals.
The beef was beautifully tender and the pearl onions gave it a slightly tart flavour. The buttery and creamy mashed potatoes was really a good pairing choice for our stews.
The Kentucky stew was similar to the bourguignon and so filling. The stews are filled with rich and tender meats If you’re in the mood for some comfort food (and who isn’t?), make your way to your local Burgoo. What’s your favourite comfort food?
