Comment of the Day: The Sacrilege of Ketchup on a Burger
Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.
In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.
Today Christina Uticone wrote about how she's assimilating in Texas by learning to leave ketchup off her burgers.
Albert Nurick chimed in on why Texans do this:
On a high-quality burger, less is more.
Ketchup and mustard can hide all sorts of woes; neither are required if the beef is juicy, the right amount of cheese is present, and the veggies are fresh.
When I want to evaluate a burger joint, I order a cheeseburger with lettuce, onion, and pickles. The flavor of the meat is front and center.
Make sense to us!
