When it comes to tasty foods, the Cheeseburger (or, even better, the Bacon Cheeseburger) is high on the list of our favorites here at The Worley Gig. Last night, I was making the scene at Heavy Metal Happy Hour over at Arrow Bar on Avenue A and had the pleasure to make the acquaintance of Dave (aka The Rev) who, among other daily pursuits that rock, is on the quest to find the most delicious Burger – not just here in NYC but perhaps in the entire world.
Dave’s website, which finely documents his search for the Holy Grail of Beefy Goodness, is called The Great Burger Conquest, and it is totally rad. Burger Conquest is loaded with fun reviews of all the places where Dave has eaten a burger, accompanied by mouth-watering pictures and fun commentary. You’ll also find quizzes you can take about what toppings you like on your burger, and stuff like that. Very fun! Currently, Burger Conquest’s list of where to find the Top 5 Burgers in NYC includes: Old Homestead, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, Trailer Park Lounge, Burger Joint, and Royale – none of whose burgers I have actually consumed, yet. So I will be putting those restaurants on my list of places to hit up in my own person quest for the best cheeseburger in New York City. Thanks Dave and good luck with your Burger Conquest!
Ridiculous Food Society of Upstate New York has posted a lovingly crafted and beautifully detailed recipe for Bacon Rice Krispie Treats. I will now request that somebody reading this blog please make some of these delicious treats and invite me over to help you eat them. I will bring an appropriate accompanying beverage. Thank you.
Nick over at The Littlest Winslow just hipped me to the most awesome thing I have seen in maybe one or two days, the Bacon Of The Month Club! Holy Smoked Pork Chops, Batman, who among you will buy me a gift membership?
According to Blogger Neil Duckett, the Quarter Pounder sandwich has not yet been introduced to the menu at McDonald’s restaurants in Japan. However, McDonald’s recently opened restaurants simply called Quarter Pounder – without the McDonald’s name or familiar Golden Arches logo – in two Japanese cities. Quarter Pounder restaurants look more like pricey martini bars than fast food joints, and they sell only two menu items: the Quarter Pounder with Cheese and the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Cruise on over to the official Quarter Pounder Website and enjoy all of its minimalist splendor!
