There are three? I remember when I saw the first one on Main Street open up and I thought they have a wicked patio, and then I found a Burgoo on West 10th. I then wanted to know more. After asking around I found out that Burgoo is a comfort food restaurant which originated in North Vancouver (correction -West 10th is the original location) and now has a total of three locations. People have been raving about their soup.
The menu is filled with comfort food from all around the world, butter chicken, soups, sandwiches, stews, mac and cheese, the list goes on. My eating companion ordered the Irish Stew (16 dollars) and I had the beef bourguignon (16 dollars). My friend said he liked the stew but I have a feeling he likes everything. I thought his stew was just ok, but my beef bourguignon was great. The mash potatoes that it was served with had a strong garlic taste, a little too much for my liking. I hate walking out of restaurants with halitosis, it is almost as bad as when your clothing smells like Korean BBQ or what ever was being made in the kitchen. The accompaning mushrooms, carrots, and small dumplings really added to the taste of my stew.
People have been raving about this place and I was happy that I got to try it out. I plan to go back to try out some other items on the menu. Perhaps next time I am hung over. I would say it could be a few bucks cheaper but it seems the new norm for a meal is about 15 bucks.
