Rather than revering on only haute cuisine , let’s talk about the ultimate comfort food for us workaholic millennials- burgers!
Did you know- if all Hamburgers eaten by us in a year are arranged in a straight line, it would circle our Earth 32 times or more!
Burgers are quick, filling and delicious!
The tale of burgers started from the city of Hamburg and the word literally means “from the city of Hamburg,”. But as the food item gained popularity around the world , the hamburger’s associations with the city of Hamburg were lost, the ham was occasionally dropped from the burger, probably because the ham here was mistakenly thought to refer to the meat. This permitted not only the simple form burger but also the creation of endless variations such as cheeseburger, veggie burger, and tofu burger. With the burger’s emergence in the foodscape of our capital, we are getting alternative flavors of burgers everyday- some using our age- old spice filled recipes for the patties and the sauces for an alternative taste.
Everyone has their own idea of what a perfect burger tastes like. Personally, while some might like a charred, medium-well burger with lettuce, mayo and mustard, others might like it with exotic flavors of mushroom, pickle or even tomato puree!
But what is it that makes a burger, ‘great’?
Is it the softness of the bun or the succulence of the patty ?
Starting from that lilliputian burger found in the school canteen, which was basically a little piece of beef potato chop tossed inside a stale bun; to that fresh and overhyped food court in the city where they served a fried chicken with bones and everything inside a soft bun; the truth is- The concept of a yummy burger is only about two decades old at Dhaka.
However fast-forward to now, we have many delicious options in hand and what is a better time to explore all these while being stuck in quarantine? After all as Gigi Hadid so poignantly puts it-
“Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane.”
So don’t forget to order away to your heart’s content from Pathao!
