10 Cannon Street, Hamilton, On., (905) - 536-1146, Open Mon - Wed 11-8, Thurs. - Sat. 11 - 9, Closed Sunday.
I finally had the opportunity to try The Burnt Tongue on a Thursday evening with my son Thomas. He has raved about it after trying several of their home made soup concoctions. Located in the downtown core of Hamilton on Cannon street near James Street. It is a rapidly changing area of Artists and Hipsters and has a lively street scene.
It has an open kitchen and a friendly welcoming staff.
The inside has several small tables and a bar and stools at the front window.
There are usually several choices of soup available. The menu is displayed near the kitchen area and includes vegan choices and burgers.
Tom and I both chose the same soup - it was the split pea and sausage in the large size (there are 3 sizes, small, medium and large).
With the soup there was a choice of bun, carrot and celery vegetables or an apple. We both chose the carrots and celery. The soup was very hearty, large and very good!!
We accompanied our soup with an order of their Belgian fries, which are hand cut and double fried. They come with a couple of dip choices - we chose the curried ketchup, which was sweet and spicy.
This establishment is not licensed, but it has quite a selection of soft drinks. We chose the Coke, which comes in old school glass bottles.
Two large soups and 2 cokes with fries and dip came to around $35. Although not cheap, the quality of the ingredients, the tasty fries and the friendly service are all worth it. We will definitely return soon for more tasty soup concoctions!!
