Mini Burgers at Morton's Steakhouse



If you haven't heard, if you go to the bar at Morton's Steakhouse for Happy Hour (5pm-7pm Weekdays) they will serve you FREE mini burgers/mini steak sandwiches to accompany your beverage. I needed to try this out, so I planned a trip with some friends.

Morton's Steakhouse has only two locations in Canada and is considered one of the better places in BC to order a steak. I am a nerdy, introverted person at heart and walking into a pretentious restaurant like Mortons hoping to get something for free makes me uneasy. Keep in my mind one of my last meals was at Save On Meats, I felt like a poorly dressed hipster walking into the Louis Vuitton store toting a Salvation Army bag.

We sat at the bar and ordered a Caesar, that was more memorable for its ten dollars price tag then its flavour. Sipping the drink slowly, I kept scanning for any sign of the mini burgers. Then I started to started sniffing discretely in hopes of an aroma of the burgers from the kitchen. After 10 minutes of stirring my drink and sipping slowly there was still no signs of the mini burgers. Did I just buy a ten dollar drink for nothing? I could sense I was going to have to pay for my friends drinks for the bad intel that we acted on.

The bartender looked like Daniel Sedin (Daniel not Henrik ) and he chatted us up for a bit about the restaurant and for some reason also about the Ol' Dirty Bastard from the Wu Tang Clan. The service at the bar was great and they even made us a pineapple infused shot that tasted fantastic (the shot was on the house cause my cheap ass wasn't going to pay for it). Then the bartender said it, "Oh I have some complementary sandwiches coming your way". My face was all smiles.

The sirloin mini burgers arrived. They were not accessorized with any vegetable toppings however they did have an interesting mayonnaise, mustard and radish spread. In our one drink sitting the four of us shared two trays of these bad boys.

Overall, it was a fun experience. The free mini burgers were good and has tempted me to try out their burger special for 20 dollars.

On top of being free, these little bad boys are made from cuts of filet mignon!

I really hope this is still going on!! I got a taste of one of these mini burgers and I want more. I definitely wouldn't mind ordering a drink to get my grubby hands on these...neither would my friends.

They have this 'power hour' at most Morton's. Im in Hong Kong these days and here the beers during happy hour are 20 HKD which is 2.50 CDN, so the overall expense is lower than with 10 dollar ceasars! The only differecne is the shape here- they are mini hot dog shaped and they keep them flowing very, very generously and some people even have to turn them down after a while, although I have yet to say 'no more thanks'.
