The past few years, we’ve seen the rise of the burger from fastfood outlet obscurity — playing second fiddle to the omnipresent bestseller, fried chicken — to being a star of its own. For how can you explain the sprouting of burger joints locally, each one trying to outdo the others by tweaking with the burger variables — the beef, the serving size, the fillings, even the bun.
