Kooky Canuck Restaurant Review

: Many have tried, but few have won the Kookamonga Challenge, which involves polishing off a seven-pound burger in an hour’s time. Thankfully, more reasonable portions of the signature burger are offered at this Canadian-themed diner, along with a fried green tomato BLT, catfish, meatloaf, and deep-fried Cornish hen with Cajun butter. Poutine (fries topped with gravy and cheese curds) ties in with the Canadian orientation. Log cabin walls and mounted stuffed animal heads imbue the place with a ski lodge ambience. If vegetarians can ignore the taxidermy, they’ll enjoy the double-decker veggie burger. For dessert, don’t miss the very Canadian Nanaimo bars (layers of chocolate, coconut, marshmallows and graham crackers). If you’re feeding a crowd (or a really hungry person), the Avalanche offers 18 scoops of ice cream piled high with toppings. The wine list is small, but Kooky Canuck offers a selection of Canadian beers and other premium domestics, as well as cocktails.
