Day 6 – the best burger EVER?

The unexpected side effect of this project, is that by eating the same type of food every day, it’s easy to compare and rank the different options.

In regular daily life, I  eat burgers maybe once every 2 weeks at the most. However at this point in the project, I’ve had at least one burger a day, sometimes two or three. So I’m immersed in the world of burgers…

Today, I put out a question to everyone at Google Boulder, asking for their opinion on the best burgers in town. The responses did not disappoint! I now have a shortlist of at least 10 new places to try. The one I chose for today was from Proven├žal restaurant Mateo in Pearl Street. This is a gourmet burger made with locally sourced, naturally raised beef, topped with caramelized onions, cheese and a side of fries with aioli. I have to say that my colleagues absolutely nailed it – this is probably the best burger I have ever tasted!
