So a couple of weeks ago I tried this almost awesome burger at White Tiger Gourmet — a terrific, hip-without-trying-too-hard joint in Athens.
More on White Tiger in a sec.
First the burger: I say “almost awesome” because I loved nearly everything about it, specifically the juicy/crusty patty, the great bun, the grilled onions, the crisp greens.
I hated the American cheese, however. I always hate American cheese. It’s like eating melted plastic bags. It coats your tongue with its petroleum-product texture and its processed flavor.
And yet the kind of people who bake their own buns, and cure their own pickles, and grind their own cows (you know who I’m talking about) use American cheese because of the way it melts.
Sorry, I can’t deal with the American cheese on the Bocado burger, either. Deal breaker.
I just noticed that the kids over at Eatocracy got into this discussion recently once the comments started rolling in.
You know what’s good cheese on a hamburger? Good
