Seven totally bonkers burgers from a new patty shop in Woodbine Heights
Hole-E Burger Bar, a new restaurant on Coxwell Avenue just north of East York, gets its name from the trio of holes stamped into every patty cooked on the kitchen’s flattop. Owners Justin Lebofsky and Sam Gan claim that the perforations help ensure an even cook. Also, the tri-pronged contraption used to make the holes doubles as a flavour injector, allowing sauces to be piped directly into the meat. The ingenuity doesn’t stop there—these teetering stacks come topped with things like crushed nachos, mounds of mashed potatoes and, in a few cases, something called a “cheese skirt.” Here, seven of Hole-E’s most creative burgers, ranked from “slightly out-there” to totally bonkers.
