Ted's Lunch: Ted's Cheeseburger
Where: Ted's Lunch, Meriden, CT
What: Ted's Cheeseburger
Build: Steamed burger with Vermont cheddar, lettuce, r/o on soft kaiser roll.
Comment: Where do I begin... First, click on the photo to enlarge the burger and take a good look. This is what crap on a roll looks like. Seriously, I've read about Ted's Lunch in books, seen him on TV, listened and read reviews on the Internet... I just don't get it... The burger is steamed in a little steam box along with the cheese. Okay, steaming cheese - not so bad, but when you steam meat and then pour off all those wonderful juices you are just pouring flavor down the drain. Not to mention everything that makes a burger taste and feel like a burger in your mouth. This burger had the appearance of a small animals brain and the aroma was not one of a hamburger, but of bland overcooked meat. Ever get served a burger where the roll was so large that attempting to get a bite of the burger becomes a game of hide-and-seek? Well, the roll at Ted's is sooo large it's big enough to house 2 burgers. Sorry Ted, I just don't get it. EPIC-CRAP-FAIL.
