Behold the humble burger. Everybody loves a burger, all over the world. Why? One theory–my own–is that a hamburger is a cheap way to crave our carnivorous appetite. We want meat! Having the experience of biting into a meaty burger, chewing through the beef, juices running out of the patty, the texture of the bread, is an (almost) divine experience.
Feeling inspired by my recent gastropub night at home, in which I made a bistro style, French Onion burger, I’ve decided to search for great burgers around the city. Philadelphia might be best known for cheesesteaks and hoagies, but there are plenty of places–hidden or not–that offer a great burger experience. I hope you come with me as I search for the best local burger in my Philly Burger Round Up series.
