This Kensington Market spot is known for its unique take on burgers. Their menu is full of one-of-a-kind creations you won’t find anywhere else. We’d recommend just about anything on this menu, but we’ve got to highlight The Bazooka Jr. This insane creation comes with a beef patty, sautéed hot peppers, jack cheese, and spicy chipotle aioli, all topped with a runny fried egg. Is your mouth watering too?
