American or British Burgers? Do you have a preference? Last night Honest Burgers asked some burger fans to vote whether to keep or ditch the US Burger they created for Independence Day.
Burgers, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder… just like people, some are judged to be more beautiful than others, more often. (See my post on “Best Burger in London” for more).
A number of burger fans were asked to come along to Honest Burgers’ new site in Camden to try out two half burgers. One half would be the fan favourite “The Honest Burger” and the other half would be the “US Burger” special made for Independence Day.
According to Tom Barton, co-founder of Honest Burgers, a surprising number of customers were disappointed when the US Burger was removed from the menu. This experiment was to ask us, the burger munching public, if the US Burger hould be on the menu permanently.
We were given a plate with the obligatory rosemary fries and told to put the flag in the correct flower pot to vote for the US or the UK burger.
When I was there the US vote was significantly higher than the UK. However, by the end of the evening is was a lot less clear cut. As yet the result hasn’t been announced. However, Tom from Honest Burgers claims it’s a close call.
@Burgaffair you'll have to wait and see. Was pretty close last night though!
