Best Burgers In The City

Written by Michelle Natalia

Hola Guys and Dolls!

For those of you that read J’adore Mi Amor you may know that I am quite the foodie and if you follow my instagram you know I am quite fond of burgers, so in this edition I wanted to give you my personal favorite “Burgers in the City” First up there is the gourmet burger category which goes to Five Napkin Burger, I mean if you need five napkins it has to be great right? I stumbled upon Five Napkin Burger one day after a dissappointing vegan pizza lunch with my daughter! We were strolling in the Union Square area and decided to give them a whirl, seriously glad we had to endure the vegan pizza to find this gem. First off the service was fast, after 15 minutes of placing our order it was delivered piping fresh at our table, I opted for the classic  they called it a class act.- 10 oz. fresh ground chuck, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and rosemary aioli on a soft toasted roll. So juicy and tasty every savory bite kept me coming back for more! The fries were the the co-star, hand-cut fried to perfection! Five Napkin Burger know their way around a burger, my suggestion if your looking to up your burger game. Locations in the New York area

Lucky’s Famous Burgers- Best Turkey Burger

Next up is the Best Turkey Burger! I have to thank for finding this burger joint. I try to substitute my addiction to burgers with turkey burgers whenever possible to cut down in the calories but often I am dissapointed with a dry tastless patty, that was not the case when my turkey burger arrived from Lucky’s Famous Burgers. I mean I got to fully customize my order which I loved, pick your bun, toppings, and cheese, who could ask for anything more? I got a turkey patty, cheddar cheese, onions. lettuce, tomatoes and of course my favorite burger topping…pickles! They also offer crinkle and sweet potato fries, which are to die for…just perfect. A delicious burger with only some of the gilt! Lucky’s is my go to Turkey Burger spot.

Five Guys-Best Damn Burger Period

Okay I could not make a Best Burger in the City list and forget about Five Guys I mean I not crazy! This is my all time favorite burger. No fuss no frills just a great burger. The pattys are made homestyle and made from 100% beef, ahh the good stuff! Five Guys also has endless possibilites for ordering but in my book theres only one, double patty, american cheese, bacon oh yess bacon, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles! I will give it to you straight this burger is messy but it is a sloppy little piece of heaven. The cajun fries are enough to set me in overdrive, fried in all natural peanut oil and sprinkled with paprika, salt and chili powder these babies make you want to sing or dance or maybe both, all I know Five Guys gets it right every time. This is how you should do a burger in the city.
