Good day and welcome to episode 89 of the Montreal Burger Report. We're going to play this one fairly straight, because we turn the microphone and pretty much the entire episode over to David Ferguson owner and chef at Le Jolifou, and we're not certain how he feels about sound effects. He starts off by explaining how he and his wife Helene got the name Jolifou from a Cornelius Krieghoff painting.

David Ferguson owner and chef at Le Jolifou then goes to explain just about everything you needed to know about the meat. While making small tangents to discuss the concepts and ideas of making authentic food and what exactly a Roadhouse is.

Once all is said and done, will he successfully hijack the show? Is anyone going to eat? And What about the condiments? Find the answer to these and other questions next week in episode 90 of the Montreal Burger Report. Same Burger time, same burger channel.

Le Jolifou is located at 1840 Beaubien East they are open Tuesday to Sunday nights until 10 o'clock at night (later on Fridays and Saturdays). Their phone number is (514) 722-2175. And the website is
