The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 6/16

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 6/16
From, by admin

The list of intriguing burger elements encountered in the past fortnight starts, of course, with camel. Ground in house, no less, at the appropriately named Ground Burger Bar in Newmarket, Ontario. But the list doesn’t stop there: black Manchego cheese; bacon & orange marmalade; Korean Gochujang sauce; onion chutney and lavender mayo.

Intriguing in its omnipresence is arugula (known in parts of Europe as rocket), included on four of the burgers below. I would wager that soon more high-end burgers will be dressed with arugula than with lettuce. This is being a steady, quiet changing of the culinary guard. Try it if you haven’t.
