Introducing: Toma Burger Addiction, the latest contender in the Queen West burger wars

Introducing: Toma Burger Addiction, the latest contender in the Queen West burger wars

Name: Toma Burger Addiction Neighbourhood: Queen West Contact Info: 712 Queen St. W., 416-901-1027, toma-burgeraddiction.com, @tomaburger
Owner: Husband-and-wife team Clemence Gossiaux and Thomas Sedille Chef: Thomas Sedille, who hails from Cap D’Agde, France

The Food: Fourteen pub-style burgers made with Angus beef (except for the extravagant brie-topped Las Vegas burger, which is 100% Kobe). Brioche buns are house-made daily, as are ketchups, mayos and compotes. For nine bucks, true hedonists can top their patties with slabs of foie gras.

The Drinks: Margaritas, sangrias and other summery cocktails, including a signature spiced-pear mojito.

The Place: French owners Gossiaux and Sedille designed the space themselves. They stayed clear of mason jars and barnboard, instead creating a clubby diner with big leather booths and bright red-and-white walls—one of which is plastered with huge letters spelling out the signature dish.

The Numbers: • 14 burgers on the menu • $9 to add a slab of foie gras to any order • $5 to sub Kobe beef for Angus • 5 homemade sauces: ketchup, truffle mayo, chipotle mayo, roasted garlic aioli and Toma secret sauce • 4 giant booths
