If you are in the Grand Beach area, you will not want to miss out on this surprizing foodie adventure. Just north of the Hwy. 59 Grand Beach turn off, on the west side of the highway, sharing the parking lot with a Woodstove company is a little yellow school bus which has had various personas over the years. If you are expecting a plain fast food burger and frozen fries, hold on to your beach hat!
The burgers are hand-formed patties from grass-fed beef and the cheese-burgers come with your choice of five Bothwell cheeses. I do not have the entire run down of selections because we were in a hurry to get back into the city yesterday. But from the three parties of people from my family who are raving about the little place, I know that there is smoked Gouda and jalapeno.
Bothwell cheeses are also featured in their artisan grilled cheese sandwiches.
Smoothies can be whipped up and I understand that the milkshakes are very good but the star of the show (for me at least) are the hand-cut fries and poutine made with Bothwell cheese curds! I got to taste the fries first hand when a take out box of them appeared with a roving gang of friends this weekend (they just opened Saturday). The fries are sliced daily and retain that sweet and almost nutty flavour that only fresh cut fries can. I can only imagine what the combination of a savoury gravy and Bothwell curds would do to enhance them. I understand that from-scratch onions rings are also on the way. Yum-cannot wait until Friday when we had up to the Beach area again.
Tell them Food Musings sent you and I predict that you will get extra curds on your poutine!
