For those of you that follow lots of Edmonton food people on twitter, you may have noticed a torrent of @Smashburger tweets last night as a number of us were invited to the media launch of the newest Canadian Smashburger (1st in the Capital Region, 3rd in Canada) in Sherwood Park. As I was able to bring a few friends with me, I dragged A and JP along despite the potential of burger fatigue from the Canada Day long weekend because I needed to try several items. Randomly, it turns out the owners (Bo and Lin) of this Smashburger are casual friends of mine, so I was even more excited to try things out and talk about the food with them.
Let’s start this post off with a disclaimer: I got a message from the owners of BurgerWorks asking me to mention their new promotion on the WWAP blog and I felt that it is not my style to just talk about the promo, so I decided to pop in for lunch and combine a review with more details about the promotion. I did not get paid ( in cash or food) for this review/promotion mention and all opinions in this post are my own. (EDIT: Sadly BurgerWorks is now closed)
Now that we’ve taken care of the disclaimer, let’s talk about the food. BurgerWorks is a (now) locally owned restaurant out in Sherwood Park. It used to be known as Fulton Market Burgers so some of you might remember it as such. BurgerWorks’ slogan is “Gourmet Your Way” so you have a lot of opportunities to create your own signature burger.
