I was only recently informed that, by luck or (most likely) by virtue of some promotion, burgers will be arriving in our office today. So for this week's Off Topic, it seems more apt than ever to ask people to dive into their memories. Memories about burgers, of course.
Kotaku is fortunate in that our office is located fairly close to Bar Luca, one of Sydney's best burger joints. Their Blame Canada burger is the most popular item on the menu, but I prefer the cleaner taste of their Japanese-inspired chicken offering: a top fried chicken patty, wasabi mayonnaise and some lettuce. It's since been taken off the menu and replaced with a more American style chicken burger, sadly.
I've never appreciated those massive towers of burgers that looked like they couldn't fit in your mouth. The last thing I want from a burger is a pile of sauce and insides on the plate. If it's in the burger, I want to be able to sample it in a bite. Nobody wants to get splattered with sauce when they're eating out.
So clean and simple, that's the appeal for me. Although that blue burger was one of the more special items I've eaten in a while.
What's the best burger you've ever had?
