Vancouver’s Beloved Monarch Burger Is Transitioning From Pop-Ups To Permanent Brick-And-Mortar Restaurant

What is more exciting is its proximity to Uncle Abe’s. Monarch will be serving up burgers until the late hours on weekends to satisfy all your cravings after events.

Finally, the much-awaited moment has arrived. Monarch Burger, the famous burger shop of Vancouver, which is known for its ‘Dirty Burger’ has officially opened its first physical restaurant on 15th May. The owner and ‘dirty burger’ famed chef Robert Belcham has conveniently located the shop at 3034 Main St, Mt Pleasant, adjacent to The Narrow Group’s ‘Uncle Abe’s.’

Belcham introduced Monarch Burger as an offering at Campagnolo Upstairs on Main Street back in 2014, which then found a spot at the nearby ‘The American.’ However, it has been around East Vancouver in the form of pop-ups at several events, offering its delectable creations to its followers. 

Now with the opening of its permanent location, Belcham jokingly commented, “The exile is over.” He added, “It’s fantastic to be back where we belong.”

The shop is in collaboration with the Narrow Group (The Narrow, Uncle Abe’s, and Key Party), replacing The Narrow Group’s Mitra Canteen, which was closed earlier this month. 

What Is On The Menu?

Monarch Burger is offering seven different treats along with its signature ‘Dirty Burger.’ The offering includes,

  • The Burger
  • The Original Dirty Burger (cheeseburger)
  • The Double Dirty (double cheeseburger)
  • Veggie Mushroom Burger (featuring house-made patty)
  • Smokey Beef Fat Fries
  • Poutine
  • Spicy Loaded Poutine (with pulled pork and Wreck Peach Hot Sauce from Rosie’s BBQ and Smokehouse).

At Monarch Burgers, all of the burgers and other treats are made with locally sourced 66 Acres Beef, fresh lettuce, and tomatoes, Belcham’s own recipe – homemade buns, homemade pickles, and most importantly the brand’s secret sauce. Additionally, it also offers cold beer and soda for its customers. 

In the case of takeouts, Monarch takes special care to pack with different components kept separately to ensure the items remain crisp and fresh, avoiding soggy in the bag. 

For people who choose to dine in at Monarch, you have two options: sitting at one of the 13 high-top tables indoors under the visually appealing murals of local artist and author TheCoalCinder, or on a fully licensed and year-round patio. Currently, the patio will accommodate 10 seats at a time, but in the future, 20 more seats will be added to the seasonal curbside patio this summer.

What is more exciting is its proximity to Uncle Abe’s. Monarch will be serving up burgers until the late hours on weekends to satisfy all your cravings after events. Also, you can take the monarch’s treats to enjoy over there. Doesn’t that sound good?

Opening Hours of Monarch Burger:

Monarch Burger will be open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. on weekdays and 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. on weekends. 

Belcham shared about his first physical shop, saying that his intention all along was to open a casual burger joint with its meticulously crafted menu, although Monarch’s reign as a burger king in Vancouver was short-lived. Unfortunately, the pandemic put a pause on his plans. However, it has now sparked excitement among its followers all over Vancouver.
