Happy National Burger Day!

A taste of heaven between two buns...that sounds like a burger! According to all sources, it’s unclear exactly why the 28th of May dons the title “National Burger Day”, but let’s not complain about the lack of historical clarity, and focus on what’s important on this delicious food day: it’s an excuse to grab a hamburger!

The United States actually reserves May 28th exclusively for national hamburger day, and boasts two other national days for cheese and veggie burgers. #GodBlessTheseUnitedStates


Origin of the hamburger

The hamburger is an icon of American fast food, but its origins might surprise you. From the military camps of Genghis Khan, to German steamships entering New York harbour, the humble burger has a pretty wild history.
