The Bungalow

Headed out to London for dinner with some friends last night.  The original goal was to visit a restaurant that was featured on the show "You Gotta Eat Here".  Some online reviews indicated the place wasn't as awesome as reviewed on the show.  These same reviews suggested a place called The Bungalow as a good alternative.

When have internet commenters ever steered somebody wrong?

But they were spot on in this case.  A charming little building in the middle of a downtown London neighbourhood.  Parking is a bit challenging for a full sized truck but it is worth the struggle.

The draw here is the burgers.  If you've ever been to The Works, it is a similar approach but about 10 times classier.  You can build your own, but there are some mouth watering menu selections.  Jen and I were both raving about our burgers.  We need to go back and try more.

The beer selection is varied and there are some interesting picks but I'm kind of disappointed now when I don't see a Sawdust City beer on tap.  But there's still something for everyone and there will be a beer to go with whatever burger you've picked.

Every once in a while you find a place like this.  Unfortunately they are rarely close to where you live.  I am really hoping them success because I want a franchise in Kitchener as soon as possible.


  1. My faith in "You Gotta Eat Here" was shaken a bit when they chose Joe Feta's in St Catharines. We ate there after the show to give it a second chance and were still massively unimpressed.

    I still love watching the show, though.

    1. Yah, you gotta wonder with that show sometimes. EVERYTHING is awesome. Pays to get a second opinion. Smokin Buddha is on this season, interested in seeing what they prepared for the show.

    2. Seriously!? I didn't know that! That's awesome. See, now that I can believe.

    3. Now I've gone to check the website and I see Memphis Fire BBQ in Stoney Creek is set to be on the show as well.

      Memphis Fire is AMAZING, so I concur with these choices to represent Niagara(ish).
