|My Big Fat Greek Burger (half), Chippies, Rings and 2 dips|
A while back I saw a segment on CHEK News, Victoria featuring 'Bin 4 Burger Lounge'. I immediately checked out their website, burger menu, found a location in Nanaimo and emailed a friend suggesting when we can get together, "... let's meet at Bin 4 in Nanaimo!!!"
I was in Nanaimo last week, a rare occasion through Covid and made the trip equipped with my take out order, phone number and address for Bin 4 Burger Lounge. An easy to find location in the little strip mall right next to Costco. The young woman on the phone was friendly, pleasant and helpful. I placed a large order, enough for at least two people but I had one burger for lunch and another to bring home for dinner. I couldn't make a decision on just one burger and because of Covid stay close to home, so I wanted to order a good assortment. I was not disappointed!!
|Personalized Thank You!|
I eagerly unpacked my BIG bag of take out in the car and noticed even though there was next to no personal interaction because of Covid, there were notes written on everything ... including the outside of the bag! 'Thank you!' on one side below the logo and a heart with my name on the other side. A heart warming, personal touch in this physically distanced world we live in right now. Each crisp, white box had beautiful penmanship of what was inside... 'Chicken of the Sea Burger', 'Biggest Fattest Greek Burger', 'Chippies', 'Diparoos', '1/2 Rings' and '1/2 Fries'. Yup lots of food and the personal touch of 'notes' in all this Covid weirdness!!
|Chicken of the Sea Burger with Truffle Aioli|
It was early afternoon and I was famished, so dug into the 'Chicken of the Sea Burger' ~seared rare sesame crusted Ahi tuna, olive tapenade, chipotle aioli, fresh cucumber, cilantro yogurt, tomato, butter lettuce and red onion.
|My Big Fat Greek Burger|
The 'My Big Fat Greek Burger' ~BC lamb, olive tapenade, oregano yogurt, goat cheese, fresh cucumber, roasted garlic aioli, tomato, butter lettuce and red onion... came home for super. The side was 'Spiced Potato Chips' (that became movie snacks a few days later) and bacon aioli dip.
|Mega Red Onion Rings|
The Red Onion Rings are very wide slices of luscious sweet, red onion in a crunchy Panko crust with a shaving of parmigiano and a dip. The photos taken in the car with my phone don't do justice to this burger, chips and ring feast from Bin 4 Burger Lounge. I fell off the Paleo Diet wagon on this take out but it was so worth it! I highly recommend Bin 4 Burger Lounge the next time you are in ... or traveling through Nanaimo! Support your local restaurants through Covid ... order take out!
Until next time ... Bon Appétit ...stay healthy, be safe, wear a mask and take good care!
