Getting the flavour right in a burger is probably the most important thing. But I’m a big believer in getting the texture right too. What does it feel like when you take that first bite? If the patty – or central ingredient of the burger – is soft and mushy, then you might have a problem. But make sure the bun is toasted or add some crispy ingredients to add crunch and you can restore the balance. Unfortunately the burger I had today had none of that.
