The hamburger has become a defining icon of our â€œfast food nationâ€ culture exported throughout the world. It was first made, as the story goes, at Louisâ€™ Lunch in New Haven, CT as a way to use the beef scraps in a sandwich form for the local factory workers in 1895. (Louisâ€™ Lunch is still open for business.)
I have yet to visit a country where I couldnâ€™t find a hamburger and many of them have put their own twist on this American standard. The best hamburger Iâ€™ve ever had was at the Burger Edge in Cowes, a town located on the northern coast of Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia. It was called The Okker and consisted of prime beef, short rindless bacon, free range egg, pineapple, tasty cheese, beetroot, salad, tomato sauce & aioli. I took this pic of my Okker just before I devoured it.
