Haven't you heard? May is National Burger Month! And while I may be late on the post, I do believe a hearty, flavorful burger is hard to come by these days.
Witness The Burger of the Month Club's attempt to name their Top Ten NYC burger bites. Much wafting, noshing, and careful chewing ensued in the quest to eat and rate each restaurant's burger. The Club has already tackled 47 different restaurants. What a job! Oh, yeah, and Turkey Burgers Don't Count.
Then there's Serious Eat's Snapshots from Iceland, involving several candid close-ups of ketchup-infused, cheese-melting, juice-dripping Reykjavik burgers. ::small groan:: Thank you, Robyn Lee, for possibly putting Iceland back on the traveler's map again. Because of you, I just might consider trekking to that frigid island in search of that "Offer of the Century."
