When is a burger not a burger????…..

Answer: When it’s an NUBURGER
So recently in my household we set a few lofty fitness goals, the biggest one for myself was to try and get back into my old “race” shape, for my wife, it was to run in her first long distance race. So we both signed up for and ran in the 10km portion of this years MANITOBA MARATHON, and I am pleased to say that for both of us it was a resounding success.  That being said, that success didn’t come without a lot of hard work in the gym, and a slight change to our diet plan. So where could we go to celebrate all of our hard work, without also destroying everything that we worked so hard to achieve.
Well  a BURGER is definitely a great way to celebrate, add the facts that at NUBURGER their beef patties are always fresh never frozen, and that they are made with 100% lean Manitoba beef, or that I can get local Bison meat instead, NUBURGER was the perfect place to balance our celebration and diet needs.
So here’s what I went with.
The OPAH! burger


This was an amazing, bison burger, served on a multi-grain bun ( traditional buns or lettuce wraps also available) with an olive tapenade, Feta, Gourmet Lettuce, Tomato, & Lemon Oregano Yogurt. This beauty hit the taste buds in all of the right spots,  and for you local sports fans, my wife enjoyed this delicious treat
The Blue & Gold burger

Again a Bison patty served on a multi-grain bun, but this time it was garnished with Blue cheese, Fancy tomato, Balsamic Onion, Gourmet Lettuce, & chipoltle sauce, and unlike the local team… this burger is a winner (sorry boys, I know..this year will be different. lol)

So we did both decided to splurge a little bit and get some fries, but the tough decision was whether we wanted traditional, or sweet potato fries?? well after one quick suggestion by the young lady behind the counter, are choice became quite clear…. BOTH!!!!
find this on the menu as “SHAREABLES”

The SHAREABLES comes with both regular fries tossed in sea salt, and sweet, sweet yam fries and 2 dipping sauces, from which you get to choose from Ultimate chili aioli, rosemary garlic aioli, chipotle aioli, thai curry mayo, truffle aioli (that one’s an extra 50 cents), or the old stand by honey dill.

What a meal!!! the satisfaction from enjoying such a great meal balanced perfectly with the satisfaction that we were both feeling for accomplishing our goals. We went home from our experience with a smile on our face, full tummies, and a promise to return again.

Please check out the link to their web page, It is a great menu with most burgers available in beef, bison, and chicken options, there are vegetarian choices as well, and as the menu says ” The answer is YES! we serve beer”.  The atmosphere is fun, the decor is quirky and you will definitely make a second visit to try something else.
