“I still eat a burger at a counter with ketchup dripping down my face.’crooned a very good looking
Scarlett Johansson once. That got us thinking. About burgers and the ways people love eating them.
Found in every part of the world and a favorite among various age groups from freckled teenagers to the wiser generation, burgers have endeared themselves to a variety of foodies. Restaurants across the country compete for proving their mettle as the one that serves the most juiciest, delectable burger and food lovers talk about trips taken in search of such the perfect burger.
A Burger consists of a grilled seasoned patty-veg or non veg as per choice, served in a bun, along with condiments like ketchup, mustard and/or mayonnaise with some lettuce, tomato and onion slices and cheese. There are many burger varieties that can be enjoyed in hole in the wall diners, pubs, fine dine restaurants or as a take away from a fast food joint. People enjoy eating their burger in different ways and believe us that does tell a little bit about your personality. Lets take a look at a few such traits.
The Perfectionist Approach
Yes, there is that perfect way to eat your burger as researched by scientists that gets you ultimate satisfaction in every bite. And you have mastered the art of eating your burger in that specific way. You position your fingers in a specific manner- thumb and pinky underneath and fingers on top to get a good grip. No spillage, no dripping, no cutlery. Just you and your burger, chowed down and enjoyed. What does it say about you? That you love to know what you will get every time and enjoy predictable outcomes, you are not a lover of surprises.
Messy is the New Neat
You grab it with both your hands or sometimes single handed if you are busy juggling a task while eating your burger. Say like driving or answering your phone. You don’t stick with rules and enjoy doing things your own way, just like you enjoy your burger. A little bit of mess does not bother you.
The Perfect Half
Even though there is no room for cutlery in the world of burgers, you slice the burger in a perfect half, right in the middle and then bite into your juicy treat. That leaves your other hand free, maybe to pick up fries in between. You are sane, sensible and live life at a relaxed pace. Grabbing things in general do not appeal to you and your manner of eating makes you perfect dining companions.
Nibbling Around the Edges
Come on, admit it- a little bit of attention never hurts anyone. And you do love attention by setting your own trends. You love relishing food rather than chomping it down and prefer a unique style in everything you do. Slow and sensible, now are we?
Love it Extra Large
You are never satisfied with the usual and like to sprinkle some more in your life and your burger. Why enjoy the goodness of a single patty when you can easily fit in two juicy patties in a single bun and enjoy some more of life and your burger?
Deconstruct to Make Your Own
There are many who sit down with their favorite burger, open it up and take a bite of only the patty, remove the onion or lettuce and put it all back together…then take another bite. You like enjoying life bit by bit and sometimes in its whole glory. You like to analyze, slice and dice information before making any choices in your life.
“A toasted crisp bun, absolutely no lettuce, place a juicy patty on the bed of extra tomatoes and drizzle only mayonnaise” if this is how you sound while placing order of your favorite burger….there is no doubt in the world you are a fussy eater. You stick to your choices and do not bend easily. Getting you to do things that you don’t like can be a challenge.
Burgers are a lot of fun and can be enjoyed as one likes them. Whichever way you prefer eating your burger, so not forget to close your eyes, take a bite and enjoy the taste.
