Five Guys New York: A Revolutionary Burger
Let’s go straight to the point, no descriptions, no introductions but the real deal! The burger, one of my favorites ever, one of the world’s best! After trying Five Guys in Paris, Dubai and two times in New York, I can reconfirm that this is one of the world’s best. You walk into a handful of quotes from all major magazines saying that Five Guys is their favorite burger; yes, indeed it is!
How it works: order the burger with cheese and bacon. It comes empty so that you can add to it everything free of charge. My personal favorite would be Cheese and Bacon with lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, mayo, and relish.
Everything is simple and delicious!
- A soft, sticky bread.
- A very juicy not too fatty, well-done patty; two of them in fact.
- Two layers of cheddar cheese.
- Very fresh and crunchy vegetables.
- Super duper crispy bacon chips.
- Ketchup, mustard, and mayo to give it all the juiciness and taste.
The burger is wrapped in aluminum foil preserving its taste and heat. It’s so finger-licking good. Not even comparable to the fatty shake Shack, cheap and synthetic Mc.Donalds or any other fast food burger I’ve had in town, this is undoubtedly my favorite. I also had the BLT, crispy bacon sandwich which I loved, but stick to the burger.
Back to the place: white and red, positive vibes and good music, two Diet Coke fountain machines, an open kitchen and the signature peanuts you can nibble on before food is ready.
I had the chance to wait in front of the Kitchen for my order contemplating how things are done. There is a certain vibe in that kitchen, an absolute professionalism, a way of preparing these burgers with such attention giving them that love which you feel in every bite. Freshly cut fries on premises, patties hand grilled one after the other, vegetables added by one person... everyone is smiling and happy to be doing it!
I love it here... hoping Five Guys will make it to Lebanon one day!
