The first thing I ask when I walk into a new burger joint is what it is.
If I order a hot dog, I’m told that it’s a hotdog.
If the menu is short, I can order a hamburgurger.
I ask for a cheeseburger and, if the burger is not a hamburge, I get a cheesecake.
In a few instances, I have the option to order a “steak sandwich” and order the burger with fries.
The burgers that are on offer have become the stuff of legend.
The first burger that I ever ordered, on a whim, at a downtown Vancouver burger joint, was a $13.25 hamburger that tasted as if it had been cooked on a campfire.
The customer who ordered it said he’d been waiting for that for 20 years.
It was good.
I order the same thing now, for a whopping $18.25.
I can’t wait to try the next hamburger, as long as it is one that isn’t a burger.
As a former smoker, I know what it’s like to go through the agony of trying to figure out what to order when you walk in.
The same is true for many people who are looking for a healthier alternative to burgers.
There is no way to know for sure, however, whether the burgers on offer in the next two weeks will be healthier or not.
While we’re on the subject of burgers, I thought I’d share my own thoughts on what I think are some of the best and worst hamburgers around.
