Dot Com Burger Lunch at Fraiche Restaurant

Fraiche Restaurant

In addition to the weekly Dot Com Pho meet ups, the Dot Com Crew likes doing burger runs to find the best hamburgers in the city. We pretty much tried them all. From the most expensive burger in Vancouver to the most famous, we are always on the look out for a great burger.

This quest for great burgers lead us to a restaurant in West Vancouver call Fraiche and their Organic Beef Burger with truffle pecorino, foie gras butter, caramelized onions, pancetta, house-made fries with sea salt. The nice thing about Fraiche is its location – it’s just down the street from my house and offers an amazing view of Vancouver (when it’s not cloudy).

Joining Sarah and I for this Dot Com adventure were Ed Lau, Fraiche Restaurant Chef Aaron Koo, Michael “FATal1ty” Yurechko, Chris Tew and his wife Victoria from the UK and Stephen Fung, who completely misjudged Vancouver traffic and showed up and hour late. Good thing the Dot Com Lifestyle allows us to take three hour lunches.

The Organic Beef Burger was extremely good and at $16, it was also reasonably priced. The burger was so good that Stephen decided to consume an Organic Beef “Slider” made up of three burgers and three orders of fries. Fraiche Restaurant never had anyone order three of their organic burgers in one seating and proceeded to take photos of the event for their Facebook page. Everyone ordered the burger except for Sarah. She went for the truffle soy marinated sablefish.

We want to thank Fraiche for giving us their entire restaurant for lunch. We’ve never experienced that level of service before. If you’re in West Vancouver and have a hankering for a really great burger, head on over to Fraiche Restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.

    Hahaha I saw you guys tweeting about this earlier today. Stephen is an ambitious man, that’s for sure 😛

    1. Ed Lau says:

      Ambitious is not the word we were using. Ours started with S…and ended in “tupid”.

      1. Stephen says:

        You won’t like me when I’m hungry…

        1. Aaron Koo says:

          I forgot about the deal, but if I’m there this saturday, I’ll pay for your meal.

          1. Benjamin Cip says:

            If I ever have a lunch with Stephen, I will try to make him pay the bill otherwise I’m become broke lol

          2. Come on Benjamin … you can afford to give treat to all of us.

            We hope you will give in near future 😉

    2. So it was $48 for lunch? That’s not cheap.

      1. Stephen says:

        Compared to the $60 Feenies Foie Gras burger, yes it is 🙂

      2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        $48 for a lunch with such foods and such environment, it’s not expensive, affordable. 🙂

  2. Ed Lau says:

    I did not take those pictures…mine are being uploaded right now.

    1. John Chow says:

      Oh I’ll be switching it to your pics once you get them up. 😛

      1. Ed Lau says:

        LOL, okay, then I will have taken those.

  3. Syuxx says:

    wow, now that look so yummy lol 🙂

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Yammy? Are you carnivore?

  4. slugbug55 says:

    I used to work with a guy named Stephen who could eat an extra large pizza, an order of fries, and then wash it down with 2 cans of Pepsi. I think he had a hollow leg 🙂

  5. Will says:

    I’m suddenly hungry as a horse.

  6. Vincent Woon says:

    Stephen you rock 🙂
    Just wondering …how many ounces are the burgers?

    1. Stephen says:

      I’m not sure. It didn’t say on the menu. I’m sure someone will chime in with the answer.

      1. Aaron Koo says:

        It’s an 8 oz patty.

        1. Benjamin Cip says:

          You shouldn’t watch this blog if you are on diet….

  7. Wow that looks amazing. I bet you enjoyed that meal a lot.

    1. John Chow says:

      I enjoyed it. Not sure about Stephen however. lol

      1. Stephen says:

        I’m still enjoying them…right now. They have not completely digested and I taste them on occasion 😛

        1. Wow that mean your tummy is now a storage warehouse.

          That one is really lovely and nice till one and after that I do not think that I would even like their smell.

  8. Stephen is an eating mahine! He is still slim and sleek, but if he eats like that he will resemble Jabba the Hut sooner rather than later!

    1. Stephen says:

      This is actually a diet. It is called “Intermittent Fasting” 😉

  9. I must admit the burgers look delicious! But three of them? Hm, perhaps a fish dish as a starter and a burger as a main? SY

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      I’m not really into burger, I prefer KFC nuggets

      1. Also yummy! But I do love seafood more, you remember the old joke “I am on a seafood diet, I see food and I eat it”, rofl, SY

  10. It seems these are really delicious burgers! I think you had a great time with this burger lunch.

  11. ian says:

    I am having a hard time believing he ate all of that so fast. One day, you should post the unedited video. He must eat absolutely nothing in between those food challenges.

  12. Dean Saliiba says:

    Am I the only one who thinks $16 for a burger is an enormous amount of money?

    1. One of this cases where you get what you pay for I guess, if you want good meat, you pay for it, if you want McDo style meat you pay less, oh, and it depends obviously also on the country you eat in! I had a burger once in Serbia that was divine and cheap! SY

  13. How the heck did mama Fung ever afford to feed this chap as a kid? Time to petition Webster’s to put a picture of Steven next to the word glutton.

    1. Stephen says:

      They owned a restaurant. That’s how 😉

      1. That is a good explanation 😉 SY

  14. 3 burgers and 3 orders of fries = 1 heart attack waiting to happen.

    1. Stephen says:

      There’s no family history of heart attacks. Just big appetites and a huge sweet tooth =)

  15. fas says:

    What was the aftermath? Motions?

  16. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    John, Stephen and Ed Lau, you three always hang out and have great meal together. I’m sure you guys enjoy your current life.

    Between, the desert looks promosing.. 😛

  17. That’s a snazzy looking restaurant for getting a burger!

  18. Wow that one is really great looking Burger with Juice and all.

    Boy I am feeling hungry after seeing this video and awesome photos by Ed.

    1. Kevin Pasco says:

      I wonder what camera he was using…

      1. EarningStep says:

        believe me , that one is the best in this world

  19. mrloo says:

    I never had an organic burger! I should try that on my next R&R…. I hope they have that in Dallas and Bangkok.

    I really like this blog. You are one of my blogging idols John. 🙂

  20. Manga says:

    Down here Mcdonalds has the best burgers, we don’t have restaurants that serve high class burgers. Your post certainly made an advertisment for that joint! The Burgers looks so perfect! 🙂

  21. Arrange a lunch in INDIA too,, i am very feeling hungry 😉

    1. Stephen says:

      I thought Cow was sacred in India?

  22. Andi klin says:

    I’ll get a lunch there if I’ve a chance….. That’s sound great…

  23. videostar says:
