THE PINT PUBLIC HOUSE
455 Abbott St, Vancouver, BC
The corner of Pender and Abbott. Lesbian nightclub turned sports bar. Just what Vancouver needs, another Donelly-esq “social house”.
So the place is super generic, nothing special.. about a million TV’s blaring from every corner. BUT I’d heard good things about this place, namely that it has cheap drink and food specials, so I went to check it out.
We got a couple burgs…
The Garden Burger was ok. I’m pretty sure it was an Yves veggie patty… readily available at your local Safeway. The hummus and veggies on it were a nice touch, but overall it was just ok. The fries, as you can see are intensely deep-fried and heavy. Ugh.
Fiery Blue Cheese (offered as Beef, Chicken OR Buffalo!), was also ok. It’s obviously got a lot going on, I mean look at that bacon peeking out from all sides! That scary mound of blue cheese! Look at that sassy red onion!
The thing is, these burgers were each $14.00. Neither of us felt like we ate $14 meals. I’d say these were $12 burgers at best. For $14 I want my burger to be extra special, not an Yves patty with a pile of greasy overcooked taters.
