An American classic smashed up with the Italian favourite for a tantalizing experience on your tastebuds. As you chew the flavours meld together for an elevated experience. Marinara, pepperoni, and cheese set the stage for The Very Good Burger. Although it was love at first sight, the dripping sauce and ooey gooey cheese will make a mark on your heart that will warm you from the inside out, over and over. Or as long as you can make the burger last.
This month the burger supported another great local charity, RASTA Sanctuary, and we were able to raise $120 for a home for rescued farm animals on Vancouver Island. With a long history across British Columbia and Alberta, we want to recognize the amazing service, devotion and care they have provided the animals over the years.
