A decadent but healthy burger at Nelson’s Bite food truck

The Bite food truck shares why they think they are among the best burgers in Nelson.

While many diners may look to indulge in their burger experience, others are looking for a healthy option without sacrificing flavour.

The Bite food truck, who is in the running for Nelson’s Best Burger — along with Jackson’s Hole, The Hume Hotel, Finley’s, Relish, Bogustown, Uptown Tavern and Kootenay Time — offers a healthy burger with a decadent flavour.

“We get so much positive feedback,” said owner Joscelyn Harris. “We hear people really comment on how fresh our burgers are and that they are homemade and completely decadent and yummy. They are just delicious all around.”

Harris, who’s favourite is the Luxe Burger which includes double cream Brie cheese, bacon, red onions and their local, organic lean beef burger, said simplicity and consistency are what makes Bite’s burgers the best.

“I’m here all the time so consistency is huge so that every time you come it feels like the first time,” she said. “We try to use as many local and organic products as possible. I think we offer a burger that has a homey feeling, but is gourmet at the same time.”

When it comes to what makes a great burger, Harris said it’s all about the beef.

“I think simplicity in the beef itself and then to have all of the other additions that come with it,” she said. “Quality and equal amounts of ingredients are important in a great burger and an overall light fresh flavour. We make sure everything is super fresh.”
