How to make the ultimate burger

They say that there’s no food more American than the lowly hamburger.

Web Watch can tell you that quite a few European countries have no idea what a proper hamburger is.  (Or how to put ice in your drink, for that matter.)

But if you really think about it, most Americans have a lousy idea of what a hamburger should be.

Their perceptions have been tainted by the substandard fast-food fare provided by McDonald’s or Burger King in a mass-production conveyor belt method. What was likely unique and original 50 years ago has just become, well, “bleh”.

Most would agree – you take your burger patty, slap it onto a bun, and maybe add some cheese or ketchup and you’re done.

Very unimaginative. Very forgetful.  Comforting?  Sure – but where’s the fun in that?

That’s why you should check out the hamburger awesomeness presented at PORN BURGER,

Burgers featuring ingredients like

  • port wine onion jam
  • black garlic fries
  • steamed bao bun instead of the traditional hamburger roll

Imagine the possibilities, if you just got out of your burger rut and tried one of these delectible monsters!  Your belly would be so much happier with you.
