|Notice to all restaurants that proclaim “The World’s Best Burger”: You’re wrong! The world’s best burger comes from Built Burger in Seattle. And they’ll ship to your door.
It was just last year that two burger lovers in Seattle pondered how to take our beloved national dish to a new level.
Yes, there are gourmet breads and condiments and organic beef, but at the end of the day, it’s still a beef patty (and more recently, a chicken, lamb, pork or turkey patty).
One day, the two intrepid burger explorers decided to incorporate popular ingredients—cheese, other meats, veggies and herbs—into the beef. This has often been done in meat loaf recipes, but the concept tastes oh, so much different in a pure, all-natural, top-quality patty made of free-range beef from the Pacific Northwest.
The first Built Burger was created with a mixture of chorizo, roasted red bell peppers, caramelized Walla Walla onions, Worcestershire sauce and French sea salt. It was so good that people passed on the bun and toppings and ate it with a fork. It was called the Magnificent Chorizo Burger, and that’s not hyperbole.
