Burgoo Bistro winning “Best Comfort Food” in this year’s Golden Plates awards was truly inevitable because the restaurant offers three droolworthy variations of mac and cheese—with toppings like bacon, shrimp, and smoked sausage.
The five local and especially cozy locations serve warm comfort classics including: shepherd’s pie, beef bourguignon, French onion soup, and cheese fondue with apple slices, grapes, and crusty bread.
If diners are looking for a meal on the lighter side, the eatery also has a wide range of delicious soups, salads, and sandwiches. All of the soups featured on the menu—crab bisque, tomato, mushroom medley, and corn and chicken—pair faultlessly with an order of cheddar and parsley Burgoo biscuits.
Try not to battle with your tablemates over the last one. Biscuits are (sadly) temporary but family is forever.
All Burgoo locations participate in Meatless Monday each week by creating a new vegetarian or vegan dish available for order. But fear not meat lovers, you can still get the pulled chicken and bacon sandwich.
For those who want to leave the restaurant with a belly full of melted cheese and fresh bread, this can be achieved by a visit on Fondue Friday. The fondue’s superb accompaniments are changed on a weekly basis.
Sweet treats like chocolate mousse, strawberry cheesecake, and banana chocolate bread pudding will be the proverbial cherry on top of your lunch or dinner.
If you’re unable to make it to a Burgoo location, multiple food delivery partners are able to bring the warm comfort fare to you. This is wonderfully convenient during torrential downpours, sick days at home, romantic date nights, or when you don’t want to put on pants.
Burgoo Bistro has had the pleasure of serving the hungry people of Vancouver for 19 years and counting. The team would like to share their gratitude with the restaurant’s valued diners who voted for Burgoo Bistro in the Golden Plates 2020 awards.
