Burgers in America

Dayum, dayum, dayum…

Jason’s has two favourite foods: burgers and pizza. I’m not the keenist on pizza (must have eaten too much of it as a child) but I am growing an obsession with burgers. We have found the best burger in Berlin and were in search of the real deal in New York. If I’m honest, I was pretty disappointed. In the two weeks we were in America, we had four burgers in total – that’s a lot, but… yeah, we were on holiday!

1) Ellen’s Stardust Diner

Jason got the burger – and enjoyed it-ish. It wasn’t amazing he says, just an ordinary burger, no real meaty-taste to it sadly. It looks great as do the sides that went with it, plus the waiters and waitresses sang to us at the same time, so a fun experience to go with the fun burger.

2) Wendy’s

One word: sh*te. I don’t really swear and I’m not a fan of swearing on our blog, but it was rubbish. Just as it looks. Disappointing and never plan on going to Wendy’s again.

3) Umami Burger

Mega disappointing. I was really excited about this as I had been recommend it by SO MANY PEOPLE. But it tasted weird – I got the Umami Original Burger: parmesan frico, shiitake mushrooms, roasted tomato, caramelised onions, Umami house ketchup all for $11.50, but it tasted a bit off. It didn’t feel like meat was in my mouth, more a soft-gooey kind of tofu. Jason liked it and everyone else I know has too, but not on my to-do list for our next trip.

4) McDonald’s

It was an emergency – we were in New Orleans and needed to eat something immediately and it was one of those moment the only thing around is that Golden M. Please don’t judge me – haha. This burger is the only meal during our entire trip that I didn’t photograph – a great shame as it was absolutely divine – properly delicious, meaty, sauce-y and nommy. I am disappointed that the best burger I have found in America was at McDonald’s, but credit is due here – yum!
