A whirlwind tour of Fast food around the world! With special empahsis on Brazilian burgers.
Say what you will, but I suspect that the best hamburgers in the world are served right here in good ol’ United States. In the eloquent words of Lileks’ Joe Ohio:
What did the world do before Americans invented the
burger? It was the only thing you eat day after day and never grow
tired of seeing again on your plate. Flat ones, square ones, round
thick ones oozing with juice, ordinary drugstore burgers topped with
tired lettuce and a ruined slice of tomato, nickel burgers from the
buy-‘em-by-the-sack franchises with their regulation pickle circles and
emphatic jot of mustard. Burgers. Pare the world down to burgers and
women and most men would be content. As long as you promised variety.
