The burger King, that is. Earlier this week I posted the delicious picture
of the new burger at Memphis Roadhouse
and wrote it would only take a few tweaks to truly make this the best burger in all of Denmark.
Well lo and behold - Chris and the guys listened to my feedback, employing a few tricks inspired by the Bossman of Hodad’s
in San Diego and it certainly took this burger to the next level.
A few highlights are the facts that most burger joints wrongly builds their burgers upside down, placing the beef patty close to the heel (bottom) bun. Why is this wrong? Let me quote the Bossman here:
The juices aren’t going to go up. You want that burger juice to go down through the lettuce, onions, pickles and tomatoes, and marinate the whole burger.
In the other words, let gravity - assisted by wrapping it tightly in a burger diaper - make your burger better as the juices of the beef, the produce, and the sauces marinate and give you a first-hand experience of synergy: This burger is greater than sum of its parts.
Now we just need to teach Danes not to eat their burgers with a fork and a knife (yes, that is the standard around here!), but use their built-in utensils: Hands! And remember, once you pick it up, don’t let it go - that’s when things get messy.
Anyway, the most important message here is: This is my first non-gravy 5 out of 5 burger experience in Denmark - in other words: If you want the best damn burger in Denmark, go to Memphis Roadhouse in Aarhus: ALL HAIL THE KING!
