The Top Ten Dishes of 2008 - #9: Burgers at Newstead Tower Public House and BC's Kitchen

"Bill's Meister Burger" is one of the best in town, the thick, juicy patty topped with cheddar and blue cheeses, applewood-smoked bacon and, its signautre touch, a spicy-sweet tomato relish exactly 37.6 times better than ordinary ketchup.
