Title: Big burgers - a gripe
Post by: Flashheart on Sunday, February 21, 2021, 11:01:00
Don't get me wrong - I fucking love a good burger. And I am also rather partial to large meals.

But WTF is it with these huge burgers so large that you can't possibly open your mouth wide enough to eat? Like this:

What's the fucking point? How is one supposed to eat it without sitting on the fucker first?

Pricks.

You pull the stick out and press the bun down with your hand.  :)
I get your point though.

I suggest you donít watch Diners, Drive-ins & Dives then. I do agree with the OP. I suppose itís to show the customers that theyíre getting something exceptional rather than just laying it out on one level on a plate.

It does. It looks amazing.

It's eating it that's the problem.

Just woke up after a big night. Right now that burger is the salve I crave. They are a fucking pain though.

To be fair they never look like that in practice. In the photos, a Big Mac looks like it would struggle to fit in your mouth, but once served it's about half the height. Food photography is like witchcraft.

I have seen many like that. I end up having to dismantle it just to eat it. It's something I check for no before going to a new place.

I always have to dismantle a burger first in order to get rid of the fucking tomato.

Absolutely no place for them in burgers

And pickles.

But I always tell them that I want one without. If you're in a fast food joint, you have the added benefit of having a fresh one made for you instead of those that are pre-made and left in the warming thingamy for 15 minutes.

I hate pickled gherkins, the wife loves them but they spoil the taste of the burger even if removed.

I am having a big burger for my birthday tea today, a local place delivers them to the door, these are a small sample, not sure which one I will get yet though.

I love a big burger and usually will go for the biggest one they do in these type of establishments. Can definitely relate to the how the hell do I eat this dilemma. I generally take it apart or use a knife and fork. I've got it down my shirt before which was a pisser as I was going to a gig after so go cautiously now.

I'm a NO tomato's guys too, but pickled gherkins are amazing, as are caramelized onions.

I do agree though that anything that doesn't fit into you mouth in one bite is unnecessary, i can't be dealing with a burger that ends up falling out of the bun and your left with a mess on the plate.

That said, i'd love to go to Vegas and try the quadruple bypass at the heart attack grill.

Tomatoes, gerkins (/pickles), lettuce, raw red onion, cheese, wack it all in there please. Most importantly though, let's have that bun toasted. The crustiness of it gives a bit of structure to the bread to hold all those delicious juices in.

When it comes to burgers, size is almost always inversely proportional to taste unfortunately.
