In Search of the Better Burger: On Simplicity…

Sometimes, keeping things simple is best...

There are times when one craves for something incredibly elaborate for lunch, but there are also times when all you want is something utterly simple – like a plate of rice and some sauteed veg, or a schmear of peanut butter on toast, or – best of all – a properly grilled burger.  No bells and whistles, no frills: just a properly grilled beef patty on a warm bun.

Beef, bread, a bit of veg - what more can you ask for?

Case in point: the Baby Brothers Burger at Brothers Burger.  Robust beef on an oatmeal bun, a slice of tomato, a few shreds of lettuce – and no: not even a drop of either catsup or mayo.  Ah, bliss…

  1. I like Baby Brother or Brothers Burger from Brother’s Burger too!! I like my burger simple.. just the grilled patty + bun + lettuce/ tomato + catsup-mustard-hot sauce! 🙂 never liked it with mayonnaise or those special dressing and add-ons.

    Other burgers I love are from Army Navy, Sango, Burger Avenue, Kenny Rogers and Bite Club! 🙂 McDo’s cheeseburger is good too– that’s the only burger I get from there.
