5 burger joints that need to open a location in Toronto

Toronto has a bounty of burgers, but there's plenty of room for more delicious beef patties. These burger chains from afar would certainly be a welcome addition to Hogtown.

Here's a wish-list of burger joints we all need in Toronto.

Shake Shack
This fast-casual restaurant started as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park and now boasts over 50 locations in the U.S. where frozen custard and SmokeShack Burgers are among the menu faves.

Umami Burger
Burgers and beer are the foundation of this L.A. chain famous for its coarsely ground Wagyu beef patties seasoned with an umami dust containing porcini mushrooms and dried fish. Bold flavourful toppings include truffled aioli and house truffle cheese.

Uni Burger
This burger shop in Montreal has earned itself a cult following for its griddle-seared burgers loaded onto squishy potato buns. The menu is straightforward, featuring single, double and even triple-stacked options with classic topping combinations that include cheese, bacon and caramelized onions.

MOS Burger
This Japanese fast food chain is well known for its superior tobikiri burgers, along with its lineup of teriyaki burgers, spicy cheeseburgers and shrimp cutlet burgers. One thing Torontonians don't even know that they're missing out on is the rice burger, which features two rice patties instead of a bun.

In-N-Out
Burger enthusiasts would literally flip out if this West Coast chain ever decided to open an outpost in Hogtown. If the one-off pop-up proved anything, it's that we want more Animal Style burgers.
