GORGELICIOUS - The Pit Burger Bar
January 28, 2013
The Pit Burger Bar

This is a classic grab-and-go place that’s open later than most of the other food joints on campus. Located in the basement of the SUB (Student Union Building), The Pit Burger Bar has been our favourite place for burgers, waffle fries, and poutine for the past four years. The prices are decent but unfortunately, you can’t use your UBC card meal balance to pay for your food.

Waffle Fries Poutine - $4.41 (6.5/7)

This is pretty amazing stuff. We wouldn’t have ever thought of putting together our two favourite foods until we noticed the Thursday special sign at the till. Upon reading the words “Waffle Fries Poutine”, we legitimately felt like we were experiencing an epiphany. The thing with The Pit’s poutine is that they don’t use the classic ingredients to create their Canadian dish. Instead of cold, squeaky cheese curds and gravies heavy with mushrooms or meat, their poutines consist of a mix of cheddar and mozzarella cheese, runny gravy, and green onions. The combination of this, plus the amazing waffle fries, creates a sublime experience. This is a must try!
