Around the world in 6 burgers

Published May 28th, 2015

Who first thought up fast food fave, the burger? Was it the denizens of Hamburg in northern Germany (known as Hamburgers themselves) or is it an American invention? Whether you’re Team Germany or Team USA, burgers have evolved from one-all-beef-patty-special-sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickled-onion-on-a-sesame-seed-bun to gourmet iterations with premium meat, meat-free burgers and even bun-less versions for the Paleo purists who still want their hamburger fix. Whether you believe no burger is complete without beetroot or will happily entertain the existence of a ramen burger, come around the world in six burgers with us to celebrate International Hamburger Day.

Consumed with unrequited wanderlust, I get my fix in 24/7 cities and hippie retreats. I'm still looking for the ultimate combo of secluded beach and major metropolis, and my happy place is a 5-star hotel room all to myself - sigh.
