DailyDirt: Hamburgers Are American (Not German)
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
If there’s a food that people think is American, it’s the hamburger. The original hamburger probably came from German immigrants in the late 1800s, and the first mass-produced modern hamburgers started selling in the 1920s. Some estimates say that hamburgers account for nearly 60% of all sandwiches eaten in the US (and about 7.5% of all our potatoes go towards making French fries). If you like a good burger, check out some of these links.
- Joe’s Cable Car Restaurant has been serving a legendary greasy burger in San Francisco since 1965. If you want to try one, you’d better move fast because the restaurant is closing forever on March 16th. [url]
- Pornburger promotes all kinds of delicious variations of the hamburger. This “Full Monty” burger looks pretty good, but only if you like burgers dripping in sauce and cheese. [url]
- If you always make a mess while eating a hamburger, maybe you should try using this technique. Apparently, this method was devised by a Japanese TV show. [url]
