Whitehorse Burger Challenge

Unfortunately, the picture is not a burger available during the Whitehorse Burger Challenge – but rather one from my archives. It’s from an Ottawa chain called The Works (see menu here).

Anyways, a bunch of local restaurants are competing in the Whitehorse burger challenge. I haven’t had any of them – and a recent attempt by yours truly to eat healthier means I probably won’t be having any of them in August. So I will live vicariously through you.

The poster pretty much tells you all you need to know. But you can also check out Yukon Hotels Facebook page for more info.


Participating restaurants that I’ve visited before:

Gold Pan Saloon (also mentioned in my Food Network Canada interview)
The Deck
Steele Street
Klondike Rib and Salmon (also mentioned in my 2015 Must Eats)

Happy Burgering!


In case you want to know my favourite burger in town, it’s actually served on Thursdays at Farmer Roberts. To me, a good burger isn’t about all the fancy-pants things you put on it, it’s about good meat, not overcooked – and that’s what they are doing there.

Helps that I work nearby.
