Le voyeur du boeuf

Howdy!

Happy Burger, Mr. Prime Minister?

Howdy!

Down south they celebrated Presidents Day on Monday, and in honor of the mid-winter holiday βurgerβusiness came up with a list of Presidential Burgers. Which made me think of making a list of Prime Minsiterial Burgers. It'll be a little bit easier, seeing as how there have only been 22 PMs vs. 44 Presidents. But first, how many Canadian Prime Ministers can you name?

Good day and welcome to episode 91 of the Montreal Burger Report. David Ferguson owner and chef at Le Jolifou still has the microphone and has successfully prevented any sound effects from happening. He is in the middle of explaining how and why he changed the concept of Le Jolifou from fine dining to roadhouse. And then finally our heroes are able to wrestle the microphone away so they can get down and eat! E Coli goes undercover and our heroes decide to order some chicken wings, cole slaw, a buttnaked burger and an all dressed burger. They then discuss the Ferguson's living arrangements and what public transportation to use to get to the restaurant while waiting for the food to arrive.

The bar at Le Jolifou

In real life E Coli and Zeke went to Le Jolifou and then afterward Zeke went and interviewed David Ferguson. But to make a more entertaining and enjoyable Montreal Burger Report experience we have artfully spliced things together so that David Ferguson explained things first. What you hear next happened a week before what you just finished hearing.

Chicken Wings at Le Jolifou

Thank you very much for listening to episode 91 of the Montreal Burger Report where David Ferguson owner and chef at Le Jolifou finally got off the microphone and let our heroes order. Will they ever get to eat? Where's the mayo? and what about the service? Find the answer to these and other questions next week in episode 92 of Montreal Burger Report.
