Burgers may not be the perfect lunch or dinner for those who have the concept that to eat, food must come separately on a plate and you must use a knife and fork, but without a doubt this gringo invention is an excellent option when looking for an alternative to eat well and fast.
In my life as a comelón, hamburgers have a long journey, when I was a boy the walks through Urdesa ended at the Big Mac (Las Lomas and Víctor E. Estrada), then they were those of Rusty (Víctor E. Estrada y Cedros), local of a nice American with long, thin coiled mustaches. Already bigger at the end of a party he made the trip at dawn to the south to ask for a single in El Chino (the original in El Oro and Chile) and at university time he killed hunger with a double with an egg in Tom Boy ( Tungurahua and October 9).
Today things have changed and practically all restaurants regardless of the type of food, either with their own service or through third parties, are within reach of a phone call or using an app on the cell phone, and thus their products arrive directly to ourhouses. This kind of meat sandwich has no problem traveling 20 to 30 minutes, which normally takes home delivery, so it became a favorite during quarantine. "
Those were other times, at that time to eat hamburgers it was essential to go to the local to make the order. Today things have changed and practically all restaurants regardless of the type of food, either with their own service or through third parties, are within reach of a phone call or using an app on the cell phone, and thus their products arrive directly to ourhouses. This kind of meat sandwich has no problem traveling 20 or 30 minutes, which normally takes home delivery, which is why it became a favorite during quarantine. This is my ranking of the best burgers in their different categories.
In the category of the fast ones (it takes a few minutes to be ready) I give the first place to the quarter pound of Mc Donalds, It is a basic hamburger, always juicy, with cheese, chopped onion and pickles. Then comes the classic Whopper from Burger King, with its grilled meat it comes complete with lettuce, pickles, tomato slices and onion. Another one to mention is the triple Baconator from Wendy’s, three meats, three cheeses and three layers of crispy bacon, making it the largest version of hamburger that can be eaten with your hands.
The frozen segment (frozen and vacuum-packed meat) has improved markedly in recent years, Brangus (main street of Entre Ríos) has the first location, excellent meat with its own brand, which they cook in the oven and which leaves it super juicy. Second place goes to Eddy’s, its hamburger with 200 grams of meat, comes with Argentine chorizo, cheese, vegetables and chimichurri sauce. Within this group I must make a special mention to the greatest of all, The Boss Burger. This gigantic creation of the restaurant Chilli’s, that you cannot eat it with your hands and the use of cutlery is mandatory, because its half pound of meat, pieces of smoked brisket, pieces of pork rib, smoked sausage, bacon, cheddar cheese, vegetables and sauces give it a height greater than 12 centimeters and there is hardly a mouth that can bite you.
In the gourmet category (meats prepared with their own recipes) number one is La del Chef, in The meats of Chavela, prepared with ground loin, bacon, caramelized onion and cheese. It is cooked on charcoal and I suggest ordering it on average because its juices make the bite a delicious experience. I should also mention Bonfi BurgerNot only for the quality of the fresh meat, but also for the creativity of its combinations, the version with ripe fried and brown salt should try it. (OR)
