Hamburguesa Completa.

Thursday 6th October 2011

A hamburger just isn’t complete without salad. Onion, lettuce & tomato. It softens up what would otherwise be a piece of fried meat inside a bit of bread. You can keep your mustard & ketchup but the O.L.T. are a must.

On our way home from an afternoon at my Nan’s house, we would sometimes take one of my Dad’s infamous detours & head to a take-away burger bar called ‘Hunger Cure’. As I’ve mentioned before, take away food was a big deal at the end of the 70’s which made it that much more exciting.

My sisters & I would wait in the, seatbelt-less, back seats of the car while my Dad would run in a get our order.

They served a 100% flame grilled burger, a huge toasted bun, fresh tomato & crispy lettuce – a classic burger.

Fortunately my first taste of a real burger wasn’t under the golden arches.

Unfortunately ‘Hunger Cure’ isn’t there anymore but the memory lives on.

    I like your burger’s presentation. I do keep the ketchup & mustard, though. Sadly, many McD burgers were consumed in my youth…
