It’s National Burger Day on the 22nd August, so we’re going full ham and celebrating the ultimate in British pub food. But why is it called a hamburger? There’s no pork involved - in fact, most patties are made of beef, right? Well, it’s said the naming comes from a group of rowdy sailors from Hamburg who named America’s turn of the century (that’s the 20th century, folks) culinary invention after themselves. Bit cheeky, perhaps, but they may have been on to something - after all, we’ve been calling them hamburgers ever since.
So, in tribute to these sailors and their burger legacy, we’ve come up with some of the city’s most bonkers burger concoctions, including some that are so big we’d be surprised if a whole crew could get through them! Go forth and enjoy, this National Burger Day.
