Shake Shack, of any burger chain, makes the best basic cheeseburger. The bun is brioche-like, the meat is juicy and savory and the orange cheese is melted evenly.
On my way to the FYF Festival I stopped off at Dog Haus, a restaurant apparently specializing in hot dogs.
The toasted bun was decent bread.
It was good, albeit messy.
At one time in my life I thought In N Out was the Alpha and Omega of fast food burgers. At one time I guess it has. But the burger Renaissance which began about a decade ago, has left In N Out behind. Don’t get me wrong- it’s much better than Wendy’s or McDonald’s or Burger King.
But Five Guys is better.
It’s over between me and In N Out. I’ve moved on to better cheeseburgers.
I don’t remember if I had ever eaten this cheeseburger from Wendy’s long ago or not.
Coming back from a family event with my brother who lives in Hollywood we pulled off somewhere around Huntington Beach to get something to eat.
While I prefer steak to be cooked rare, the charred well doneness of this burger pleased me. The cheese was waxy, the bacon cheesy, but I devoured it. It wasn’t great by any means, but hunger is the best spice, as they say.
is a new hamburger chain, at least to me.
But how is the burger, you ask?
It was very good. I think the beef is grass-fed and in any case the quality was good. True to the menu, the burger was charred. They use better quality lettuce than In and Out and the bun was warm and slightly chewy.
In Singapore I fantasized many times about Taco Bell. I went here a couple of weeks ago. They have a new offering, a burrito with a core of liquid cheese!
The Cheesy Core Burrito was delicious! Slightly spicy (to my palate hardened by bird’s eye chilies in Southeast Asia) and full of Grade D beef and liquid cheese. There might have been sour cream and lettuce present.
