So I've been a fan of In N Out burgers since the first time I visited San Fran last year and clearly nothing has been able to satisfy my taste buds ever since....until now.. maybe. But good news Vancouver, there's a pretty decent substitute for burger lovers if you haven't already known - Hamburger $2.85! And just as the name says, the burger is just $2.85 ($3 after tax) with the cheeseburger only being $3.50. You'd think that for ~$2.85, you woudn't get much but think again, cause this is no bite sized burger. For a loonie and a toonie, you get two nicely grilled buns, literally half a head of fresh crispy lettuce, a thick slice of tomato and a juicy beef patty all glazed with a distinct Japanese sauce (am I the only one who tastes wasabi in it?). Never mind the mushroom melts from Triple Os or Prime Chophouse Burger from Red Robins, Hamburger $2.85 is the one. Sure it's not elaborately packed with bacon, mushrooms or lobster but it really gives new life to the simple and classic burger without being plain about it.
Now let's compare that to my previous love....
In N Out burgers really ARE good, I mean they're heaven but I can't afford to fly to the states every time I want one so I think I'll gladly settle for the Hamburger $2.85 while I wait for my next trip :)
Food quality: 10/10 (I need more of this in my life. Will they do delivery? haha :) )
Service: N/A (It's a food truck! But the staff is polite and friendly. )
Atmosphere: N/A (..it's a food truck.)
Price/affordability: 10/10 (This is like...American food affordable. I love it. $3, taxes included, gets you a crazy amount of FRESH goodness. The massive amount of lettuce was definitely a big plus for me.)
Would I go back/recommend this place?: Uhm YES, I'll be coming here every time I pass by to get on the bus to school. If you haven't been here.....wait, why haven't you been here already?
And if for some reason you haven't tried In N Out burgers a try....you better book your next trip to America soon
