    The worst thing Red Robin ever did was discontinue their tempura broccoli. What's worse, they still sell tempura zucchini, and they still sell steamed broccoli, but I can never get them to just put some fucking broccoli in the tempura then why is that too much of a request

    five guys is my go to burger before a movie

    i mean, it helps that the theater i go to is attached to a five guys, but yeah -- they are intrinsically linked for me

    the food options there are altogether pretty great

    taco bell, ivar's, and piroshki piroshki are all right there too

    I make sure to get Piroshki Piroshki whenever the opportunity presents itself. They are like the baked goods you get from the hot box in almost any Australian bakery.

    I know Red Robin gets shit on sometimes but it is hard to beat a good burger & unlimited steak fires for $7.

    Plus Red Robin now serves entire steins of beer.

    It is my favorite place to eat at before going to see a film.

    The Royal Robin is legit a really tasty burger, and it introduced me to the heaven that is a fried egg on a burger.

    I 100% like Red Robin's food more than Five Guys. I enjoy sitting in a Red Robin's more than Five Guys. I think Red Robin's has better sauces on hand than Five Guy's. I think Red Robin's is a better place to go if you have a group larger than 4 people.

    The only thing I have to recommend about Five Guys more than Red Robin's is that Five Guys has the big giant bag of fries. If Five Guys were to be renamed based on what I actually want from them, it'd be named "Five Guys Bags o' Fries".

    Bad Food Prep related:

    I went to the grocery store here in Hong Kong to stock up in case Mangkhut keeps me from being able to go out to eat tomorrow (tragic) and/or keeps me in the city for a bit of extra time, and came out with:

    1 container hummus
    1 container crudités
    bag of broccoli florets
    some apples
    pita chips
    olives and feta cheese
    A premade chicken salad
    Some yogurts
    instant coffee
    A bag of mint caramels

    This is how you prep for possible disasters, right?

    E: to be clear, I immediately bought two giant water containers upon arrival yesterday)

    I'm pretty sure the people of Hong Kong could make food out of anything, and it would mostly not give food poisoning to the locals; this is not because of being profit-driven, but because of the long history of needing to figure out how to make something out of what is available.

    Like, I 100% expect that the moment a 大排檔 can be set up without being literally too flooded to prepare food, you're going to see them up and they'll have "hurricane specials" that some random granny will recognize as something she had the last time this big of a hurricane struck a century ago or something.

    I never order standard cheeseburgers in a restaurant, I can make those at home and I'll probably like it more anyway

    I'm kinda the opposite. The further away from basic a burger gets the less likely I am to enjoy it.

    Fancy expensive high concept burgers are usually weaker than the sum of their parts.

    I typically favour a cheaper simpler burger myself, but there is a burger place here that makes a burger called "The Steaky" which is made with a Turkish roll and consists of a striploin steak, crispy bacon, caramelised onions, tomato, lettuce, BBQ relish, and aioli. It's $15, but it comes with a side of nice chips and some decent salad. There is also "The Steaky Deluxx" ($16) which nixes the bacon but adds grilled capsicum, grilled mushroom, sliced beetroot, and cheese. I get the Deluxx, but swap out the mushroom and beetroot for the crispy bacon from the Steaky. It's absolutely divine, and worth both the price and the hour-and-a-half round trip.

    if i'm getting a burger somewhere i'm gonna want at least cheese, onions, some decent sauce, tomato and some greenery. Which is generally the standard for most places doing burgers that aren't mcdonalds-y fast food places. Most pubs/cafes/places doing a burger will have all of that and if you don't want any of those you tell them. hell, i straight up don't get the appeal of a cheeseburger with just the meat and cheese. Not all burgers have to come with the lot, but they've still got a few trappings that i like

    but also since we don't have the same sort of burger/sandwich distinction i'm way more open to get novelty burgers

    i should put more pickles on burgers since those are good but i haven't made burgers for myself in a long while

    I am perfectly content to have a burg with just a patty, pickles, and a dab of ketchup if all the ingredients are high quality. It's such a great, simple flavor combo.

    I'll eat a burg however the chef is serving it. Plain, cheese only, cheese and condiments, pickles and all sorts of crazy sauces. There's no bad burg for me.

    When I talk about high concept burgers I'm not talking about lettuce and tomato and onion. Those are all normal, standard things.

    I'm talking about your SOUTHERN BBQ SMOKEHOUSE PATRIOT burger with honey glazed andouille sausage and Green Chile queso and caramelized arugula and a fucking deep fried cowboy hat.

    It occurs to me that Fogo de Chao is probably very friendly towards low-carb diets considering it is basically All The Meat.

    yeah same

    like, because a burger is generally a biggish thing with at least a few ingredients, and because having a pulled pork burger or a fried chicken burger or haloumi burger or whatever is pretty popular to have on a menu

    to me, it feels like a big old high concept burger isn't that much of a step beyond what I might expect as a burger

    apart from with price, but honestly I know far too few mid-tier burger places that are the step between mcdonaldsy places, and your real boutique burgers where the starting price for the most basic burgers are in the high teens.

    my rule of thumb with burg construction is if the burg is any less than 2/3 patty in between the buns, it's too complicated
