What Makes An Amazing Burger?

There are always high stakes when it comes to finding the right flavours that make the perfect burger. However, when professional restaurants find the right flavours that work, it might be a hit or miss with the general public. This is because of different taste preferences. As some people dislike too much complication when it come to a simple meal – where they would just enjoy something that is well-prepared and simply made. But there are others who enjoy trying out different burger variations.
The Type of Bun
A simple bun has gone a long way with brioche buns, sourdough or whole wheat bread being used. Experimenting with different type of bread has produced some unusual and great results – whereas some purists prefer a simple toasted bun that does not get over soaked by the toppings and sauces. However, the size of the bun should not overpower the size of the burger.
The Meat and Seasoning
The meat patty is definitely the highlight that will make or break the best burgers HK. A moist beef patty simply seasoned with salt and pepper or even a secret special ingredient that has been added has shown better results. The texture also depends on which beef cuts have been used, as well as the method the meat is grounded. Chefs usually have their own special preferences on what works best, where they decide whether flame grilled or cooking on a flat top would be a better preparation method. Of course there are different variations of patties now such as falafel, pork, turkey, seafood burgers and more.
Finding Sauces and Toppings That Work
Sauces made with the right combination of ingredients can ideally bring out the flavours of the patty or work with them without overpowering its taste. At most times the best burger will work with simple ketchup or mustard or a combinationof both. Of course some chefs have even created their own sauces that have become a hit with customers and even barbeque sauce has worked quite well. The classic combination of toppings includes cheese onions, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce. Then again chefs have experimented with items like caramelized onions and bacon for extra flavour and so much more. 
Why Experimenting With Flavour Will Help
By combining interesting and unique flavours together with the right preparation method, new unique types of burgers can be created. Of course burger purists will generally prefer the simpler version where the burger with the perfect meat to bun ratio remains the main part of the meal. However, experimenting can be a fun way to create something that has not been done before.
