canada_bc_theburnerWhen you pull up to the Burner Restaurant & Lounge, 4260 Oxbow Frontage Road, Malakwa, British Columbia, Canada (map), you might just need a moment to take it all in.

After all, this former “beehive” burner — 70 feet tall — isn’t quite where you’d expect to find tasty, home-cooked menus in the Thompson Okanagan region. Indeed, this structure, with its distinct wider-at-the-base cone shape, was more at home in the rural forestry industry. It was used primarily to burn off sawdust and other waste wood products during day-to-day operations.

Decommissioned in the late ’90s, these burners are all but obsolete — save for this one, salvaged from the now-closed Beaumont Mill.

Disassembled and transported piece by piece from its original home, this structure underwent a year-and-a-half reconstruction and was reborn as, fittingly, The Burner.

With a nod to its forestry background, restored machinery and images from logging days past create an ambience amid the Douglas fir and cedar post-and-beam interior in which Road Trips Foodies can chow down on roast beef and gravy-slathered Burner Yorkies, beefy signature burgers on garlic-toasted buns or blackened sockeye salmon.
