August 27th you say? What’s so special about that you say? Well, seemingly, it’s National Burger Day (#nationalburgerday) in the UK. After the piece on Cava this morning, a mail arrived in from Eat Galway about their Beef & Stout Burger which, if it was on the menu somewhere in Kilkenny, would have had my hands all over it about 1pm today.
It’s been ages since I’ve bought store-bought burgers, preferring these days to make my own – nip to the butchers, pick up some mince, add some herbs, onions, a little blue cheese or goats cheese (for that magic spark) and away you go.
When I go and order a burger in a restaurant, it’s got to be something special. There’s nothing worse than ordering something that looks like a frozen burger with overcooked toppings – you want something fresh, a good homemade burger with lean mince, crunchy onions, the nicest of bread (no regular buns please) and the rest.
