A Love Letter to The Ric Flair Donair Burger

Everyone who has been following me on Facebook or Twitter knows that I was selected as a PEI Burger Love Blogger. Well, all my assignments were done and today is the last day of this month long, province wide celebration! I had to go out and find one more love to share my heart with and when I came upon the Big Orange Lunchbox, I knew this would be an experience to remember!

In honor of The Ric Flair Donair burger, I wrote this review and have some photos to share with you. Try not to eat your computer while you read this...



To understand the total epicness that is the Big Orange Lunchbox's Ric Flair Donair Burger is to know the love of Island Beef. As a girl, finding herself at the end of PEI Burger Love, I can't say I wasn't already lamenting the end of our fabulous month of culinary excellence. I was convinced that there was no way I could find a love that would last all the way until Burger Love 2014...

And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way

Who is he, you ask? The Ric Flair Donair Burger! And oh, what a magically memorable day this became once I was met face to face with such a paragon of Burger Love. As I was presented with this impressive Burger, the first thing that struck me was that there, surrounded by home made donair meat, roasted garlic donair sauce, veggies and a coriander bun was 9oz of purely fresh Island Beef.
With my first bite into this epitome of deliciousness, The Ric Flair Donair hit me like a love song that only needs one phrase, "Postman, postman, we're the perfect pair, send this love letter care of the Ric Flair Doniar!".

Every taste after it was like being introduced to the perfect Burger over and over again! It was fresh, crisp and perfectly seasoned. The peppery donair meat met the sweet and sour pickles for a trio of heavenly sensations dancing on my tongue. And while the provolone cheese melted in between the donair and beef, it created a soft creamy flavor alongside the zip of red onion and make perfect companions for the roasty garlic donair sauce that has a pinch of uniqueness that make it a taste exclusive to the Big Orange Lunchbox! Topped off with that gently spiced presence of the incredibly fresh house made Coriander bun and you're on a trip to Burger Love Cloud Nine!

The Big Orange Lunchbox is where's the party's at and with Ric Flair Donair at your side, you'll never look at a Burger or Donair the same way! All others pale in comparison to the vivacious combination of flavor, tang and spunk that Chef James brought to life in this treat for the senses. My taste buds owe you one, Chef!

And there's a true moral to this epic love story on the last day of Burger Love. It's never too late for true love and...

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

Burger Blogging for PEI Burger Love

To all of my readers from Prince Edward Island, you know the glorious feeling that April brings. Spring is here, the blooms are budding, the birds are singing and we've got a month of culinary excellence spread out across our entire Province!
You know what I'm talking about...PEI Burger Love, the amazing event where chefs create the most amazing creations in beef that man or woman has ever been subject to. As an ardent lover of PEI, Island Producers and food artistry it only makes sense that this is one of my favorite times of year!

As such, I was given the opportunity to be a an Official 'Certified' PEI Burger Love Burger Blogger! What does this mean, you ask? Only that I get to go and eat, savour and write Love Letters to Burgers that are so worthy of adoration that I wish I had a choir with me here to sing their praises!

So far I've had the chance to enjoy The Griffon Burger at the Dundee Arms, as you can see in the first picture with Sous Chef Michael and I.

And...Found my "Soul Mates" Burger at The Pilot House, where bonding with this Burger was like true second nature!

I've written odes to both of these Burgers terrific, live-changing qualities that I know by now you're just drooling to read...
