After visiting 50 places 50 different burgers I think is time to do a retrospective analysis to see how the quest is progressing and what are the results so far.
My top 10 in a galaxy not so far away…
Korean style Kimchi Cheeseburger, have to say every bite was glorious, the spicy fermented vegetables done properly playing with the melted cheese superb.
Their simple burger which you can upgrade with several toppings like sautéed mushrooms, cheddar, bacon and even fried egg. Another perfect score for the runner up, the crispy bacon with the cheddar just awesome.
Daniel Boulud spin off of his NYC restaurant, with the same 3 burgers, same style, same Yankee, Frenchie, and Piggie, but also on special occasions a fabulous burger comes into play just like the Moroccan burger I had in their anniversary a great burger.
Burger Masterchef Fred Smith gastropub, never stop to impress with his creation and special burgers, the special Iberico burger I had was perfection in a bun.
Simon Wadham takes on burger, the Luxury one with all the trimmings, perfectly executed and great flavour.
The Mal burger, beef supplied by Donald Russel cooked to perfection, but the melted gruyere with the special tomato sauce makes the difference.
The indoor bbq grill A.K.A. Josper Grill gives the BdV Burger another dimension, classic approach with bacon and melted cheese complete the scene.
A slider made it to the top ten, but is a hell of a slider, Iberico pork burger with foie gras, melted manchego, and aioli, you will be proud to be Spaniard while eating this baby, be prepare to eat more than one.

The city saw how the buzz created by the blogging community and doing things right took Yianni to another level, after a food truck, some festivals, and a pop up, we got a permanent location, be prepared to queue for a while as the buzz is as strong as the early days, the Bobcat burger is an icon in the city.
The small restaurant in Borough serving a consistent and pretty good cheeseburger, the mix of cheeses they used, sourced from the market is to die for.
Burgers remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Parking Garage”
Jerry: Why do I always have the feeling that everybody's doing something better than me on Saturday afternoons?
Elaine: This is what people do
Jerry: No they don't. They're out on some big picnic. They're cooking burgers. They're making out on blankets. They're not at some mall in Jersey watching their friends trying to find the world's cheapest air conditioner
