Blue Star Diner – Bridgeland
I got a chance to visit Blue Star Diner in Bridgeland around 11:30am on Wednesday. As some of you may not know, Blue Star Diner is a new restaurant opened by the fantastic Dairy Lane Cafe in West Hillhurst, where I have declared as my favourite burger there in Calgary. Well this place is not much different in terms of excellence. The menu is very similar with a few added extra’s like the Lamb Burger, which I had and a few more sandwiches and breakfast items. I’ve kind of spoiled myself by having the Dairy Lane Burger which makes it tough to try something different.
So on my plate today was The Rhinopolous Lamb Burger (Alberta Lamb, Gull Valley tomato, fresh spinach, red onion, Sylvan Star goat feta, tzatziki sauce & sun-dried tomato jam) and instead of their amazing fries I had the soup of the day which I recall was a tomato and roasted red pepper gazpacho. I’ve been wanting this burger from here so bad since I saw it as a special one day and didn’t try it. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Delicious, juicy and absolutely tasty plus the gazpacho was perfect. Fuzzy had the Alberta Honey & Dijon Chicken Burger (Alberta ground chicken mixed with local honey & Dijon mustard topped with Sylvan Star Gruyere, roasted red pepper, Gull Valley tomato, butter leaf lettuce, pickled red onion & sundried tomato jam) You know it’s really good, when he has a mouth full of the burger, pointing at it and smiling! One of our friends joined us for lunch today, we insisted for his first time here he had to go with the Dairy Lane Burger (Crystal Creek 28 day aged Angus beef, Gull Valley tomato, butter leaf lettuce, pickled red onion & DL burger mayo) with Bacon and Gouda cheese. All he could say from start to finish was unbelievable.
All in all Blue Star Diner is just as good as Dairy Lane Cafe, the restaurant is a tad bigger but without a patio, it’s very nice, simple and clean in there plus lots of street parking.
