Yesterday I attended, as a guest of my long time friend, Beast, a benefit event at the Lantzville Pub. The benefit was for a 33 year old firefighter who is waiting for his second Kidney Transplant. The proceeds were to help him with some if the costs of his family being in Vancouver with him for the surgery. In any event there was a great turnout and more than 90 items had been donated for a silent auction. My friend had donated a gift script for a stay at his Terrace Beach Resort in Ucluelet.
For $20, they served a pint of lager and a burger. Some of the $20 went to the benefit. But let’s talk about the burger! We both agreed it was one of the best we had ever enjoyed. A perfectly cooked beef patty, probably 6 ounces, topped with sautéed mushrooms, cheddar cheese and two strips of bacon, all wrapped inside an excellent bun with a delicious sauce. A side of fries was included and Lantzville Pub fries are always good.
I had never ordered a burger at the Lantzville Pub before but I guarantee that I will in the future. The Fish & Chips, Fish Tacos, the Reuben and the Saturday night Prime Rib have been my favourites. But, if you go, try the fully loaded BURGER. Happy, happy, happy.
