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.
