The Mouth-Watering Facts About Burgers That Might Surprise You!

You think you are too frantic about hamburgers? Don’t worry because you are not the only one! Fresh lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes and a juicy well-seasoned beef patty sandwiched between soft and toasted buns, each bite results in oozing sauces and toothsome flavors! Hmm…one could hardly resist this sensation! 

Hamburger (or burger for short) has made its way to be one of the most loveable and crowd-pleasing foods worldwide. However, did you ever question where it actually comes from or what leads to the prominence of this delight? Check out the answers and other mouth-watering facts right here!  

1. Hamburger is created in Hamburg, Germany?

There is a myth that the first hamburger was originated from Hamburg and that is where it got its name from. If you believe so, this following fact might surprise you! Though the inspiration for the hamburger and its name did come from Hamburg, the burger itself was invented much later! In the 19th century, Hamburg was renowned for their beef which was commonly chopped, seasoned and molded into patties. It was the European immigrants that brought these sumptuous beef patties to America and made them popular street food. As forks and knives were not provided to eat the Hamburg steak, people had come up with the ideas of putting them in sandwiches and that’s how our beloved hamburger was claimed to be invented!

 

2/ How Hamburger Became Popular?

Although the burger was a hit after its invention, it was not until the early 20th century that this delight became phenomenal around the globe! At that time, meat was increasingly in great demand and people were interested in creating an efficient assembly line process that can help to refrigerate meat and produce hamburgers quicker. The birth of “fast food” became popular in the 1920s in the Midwest, America. However, only until the 1940s, Richard and Maurice McDonald came up with the drive-through concept and a more speedy process – a breakthrough in the history of the hamburger! With the idea of making McDonald a franchise, burgers have since weaved the way through every corner around the world, becoming one of the most successful stories of the fast food industry!

 

3/ Interesting Variations Around The World

We could hardly deny that the international presence of burgers is thanks to the effect of fast food chains, however, it is also because of the ability to adapt and various unique creations that make burgers accepted and well-loved in different regions and countries. Come to Japan or East Asia and you will find the rice burger of which its buns were substituted by compressed rice cakes. Head to Mexico and you can excite your palate with jalapeños and avocado slices packed in the middle of the burgers. And in India, vegetarian and chicken burgers are ubiquitous! Black burgers using activated charcoal or gourmet burgers featuring premium items like Lobsters, Foie Gras, Wagyu Beef and so on are also making waves!

So are you ready to sink your teeth in a delicious burger? If you are wondering where to find one, we have got the hand-picked list of restaurants with unique and scrumptious dishes in Klang Valley. Check out The Daily Grind, Mezze Bar & Bistro, Pavilions Lounge @ Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, SOULed Out Sri Hartamas, The Lounge @ Hilton Kuala Lumpur, JP teres @ Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Signature, EGG – 8 Gourmets Gala, The Beer Factory, Gobo Chit Chat @ Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Yeast Cafe Mid Valley, Uncle Chilli’s Bar & Restaurant @ Hilton Petaling Jaya, Bistro 160 @ Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, BLVD House, Raintree, Truly Wine and El Ibérico

View Interesting Facts about Afternoon Tea

Weekly Reads: In-TEA-resting Facts About Your Favorite Afternoon Tea!

Afternoon Tea is a long-standing British tradition and it has become so well-known that you can easily enjoy it at hotels, restaurants or even bars! Some of you might be frenzy advocates of this quintessential tradition for their delicious treats and etiquette, yet the following facts would make you treasure it even more.  

 

1/ The Origin of Afternoon Tea

If you think reveling in an Afternoon Tea is interesting, you would also fall in love with the story behind how this tradition was originated. It is believed that in the 18th and 19th century, English people often got hungry during the long gap between lunch and dinner which was very late in the evening. Annoyed by this hunger pains,  Anna Maria Russell – the Duchess of Bedford, scheduled her time to enjoy a light meal of cakes and sandwiches which she believed was an excellent stand-in in the middle of the afternoon. She soon began to invite her friends along to enjoy it and so the craze became a legend.

 

2/  Is It “Scone With The Wind” Or “Games Of Scones”?

The pronunciation of “Scone” is surprisingly still controversial up till now! It can either be pronounced as “Gone” or Throne”! Step back in time, the origin of the word “Scone” is believed to have come from the Dutch word “Schoonbrot” which means “beautiful bread” and later was changed to a shorter version which we know as “Scone”! There is no right or wrong in how you call it. Although you might keep in mind that some more pedantic experts would argue the correct pronunciation of scone is like “gone”!

 

3/ The Difference Between Afternoon Tea and Hi-Tea

Click here to view Afternoon Tea at THIRTY8Image Cre: THIRTY8 @ Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Many have mistaken “High Tea” and “Afternoon Tea” as one. If you do think so, this fact might surprise you! There was actually a huge difference between these two! “Afternoon Tea” (also known as “Low Tea”) was originated for the upper class, while “High Tea” was designed for a working-class man’s main meal of the day! The Afternoon Tea, therefore, will feature delicate finger foods ranging from small sandwiches to scones, pastries and cakes. On the other hand, as a working class could not afford such an indulgent treat, their tea set will be full of heartier affair like meat, pies and crackers and served on a high table as indicated by the term “high” in its name. Nowadays, fewer differences are seen between these two traditions. 

 

4/ Did You Hold It Correctly?

The standard correct way to hold a teacup is with one or two fingers of the hand put through the hole of the cup handle. The cup should be balanced with your thumb on top and your other fingers curled underneath. Although it’s not compulsory and unnecessary nowadays, the etiquette of holding a traditional teacup might be something you will find enjoyable to know. The holding can be a little tricky as you gotta try to lift your pinkie finger out to look proper. It is believed that the raised pinkie was started by a noblewoman and mimicked by the Royal family. 

 

5/ Milk First or Tea First? Jam First or Cream First?

Image Cre: The Daily Mail

In the past, milk is added to the teacup first to protect the delicate china from the hot tea. As time’s gone, it is more common now to add the tea first, followed by the milk. How about jam and cream? It has been a debate raging on for decades about whether to put jam or cream on your scone first! Actually, it depends mainly on where the tradition is from or where you are having your tea! In Cornwall, it’s jam then cream yet in Devon, people will do the opposite! 

Can’t wait to indulge yourself in an Afternoon Tea or High Tea in Klang Valley already? We have just the list hand-picked for you! Check out Newens Tea House, Pavilion Lounge at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, Altitude at Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur, THIRTY8 at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Nobu Kuala Lumpur, The Lounge & Oro Cafe at Hilton Kuala Lumpur and Bistro 160 at Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur!
