    LOOK, we’re not pretending this is the first time anyone has published a list of top burger joints.

    But we’ve never met a food listicle we haven’t liked, so we thought we’d share this new one with you. Because it’s Friday/the weekend and what better time for a cheeky burger?
    User review app Yelp compiled the data to ascertain which burger spots were given the most enthusiastic thumbs up by members. And if you’re a vego, don’t despair. A veggie burger comes in at 10th spot.
    Here are the results. Prepare to drool.
    1. 8bit, Footscray, VIC

    #4 gets my vote. But what makes a good burger, like pizza, is in the eyes of the beholder and the debate will never be settled. What's changed in the last 10 years is the quality of the patty. Gone are the frozen mass produced mystery bags and now black Angus or Waygu patties made by hand are all the rage and being asked how you like your patty cooked is something new. You pay for that of course, there's no end of 250-350 baht burgers available in Pattaya now. Of course you can still get 60-100 burgers but the flavour is chalk and cheese. I have a couple of fotos of local burgers of the high end in price and will post them if this thread takes off, which I hope it does

    That's a burger??

    It looks more like some wanky, over-priced, bit of wank on some wanked focaccia bread or sumfing.

    Which is one of the main reasons I make my burgers at home, where current stocks are good


    Here's a Wagyu burger from The menu - Steak & Co Pattaya Really good.


    And here's a classic cheeseburger (Black Angus) from Pastrami on Rye Thailand .

    I had to choose between the two, this one would win by a millimeter. Both are most excellent though.

    So more farting cows so okker ogres can over eat.
    If this wasn't from a reputale scientific souse,I'd think it was a spoof on how to destroy your health the planet and encourage litter,low paid menial work while ignoring the nutritional needs of the most needy.
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    You know this thread is 'Where to find Australia’s best burgers', right. Not the 'Let's Be Vegetarians for the Health of the Planet' thread.

    So anything to say about burgers? Bacon and egg burgers maybe?

    Funny you should plagiari... say that, because I just saw this:

    Nanogirl: Would you eat a burger grown in a lab?

    12:24 PM Friday Nov 13, 2015Add a comment

    Food & Drink Opinion Science

    As a planet-conscious carnivore I've often struggled with my love of homemade burgers and the environmental consequences that beef farming is having on the world.

    At the Beyond the Line of Sight conference in Auckland this week I learned about the role of science and technology in the future of food and farming and became fascinated by the research of Professor Mark Post.

    He is the pioneer of cultured meat technology, thanks to a Dutch government-funded programme investigating "in-vitro meat".

    Lab-grown meat or cultured beef is made by harvesting a type of stem cell from the neck of a living cow. Known as myosatellite cells, they repair muscle tissue.

    After harvesting, the cells are transferred to a vegetable derived nutrient gel in a petri dish and kept in a controlled environment which allows them to split and grow into muscle cells.


    After a few weeks the cells merge into muscle fibres called myotubes and start synthesising proteins which grow into strands of tissue. It takes 20,000 strands to make a burger patty with some added synthesised fats and muscle texture. Apparently it doesn't taste too bad.

    Although many people turn their nose up at the thought of a lab-grown burger, the obvious advantage of synthesised meat is that it removes the issues around animal cruelty.

    Only a single cow is needed for the cell donation process which involves a tiny biopsy cell-harvesting procedure. The cow is then free to continue with its life. The sustainability argument of cultured meat is also hard to challenge. An Oxford University study showed it used 45 per cent less energy, produced 96 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions and used 99 per cent less land than traditional beef production.

    This is not the first time that our agriculture industry has been through a disruptive challenge.

    In the early 20th century the industrial revolution replaced animal labour with machinery which reduced the amount of land needed to feed farm animals. But the introduction of machinery increased our fossil fuel consumption.

    Over the next few years the world may see a similar disruptive shift as emerging technologies allow factory-cultured meat to replace animal meat, with the transformation pitched as an environmentally friendly and cruelty-free alternative to livestock.

    The biggest solution that I see laboratory-grown meat providing is with the challenge of the world food shortage problem.

    The United Nations expects the global population to grow from 7.2 billion to 9.6 billion by 2050. According to the UN, the amount of meat eaten per person will double in that time. The planet just doesn't have enough land or resources to cope with this increase so needs to rethink how the world's population consumes protein.

    It's still a concept product and costs $68 a kilo, so conventional beef is cheaper. However as the technology improves the price will inevitably go down. Muufri, a vegan synthetic milk made from yeast cultures, and Clara Foods' chicken-free egg whites are already in the animal-free protein market.

    The challenge of competing with synthesised products might be a tough one for New Zealand's future. Due to the use of genetically modified yeast in many of the synthesised products, it's going to be hard for us to compete with this new technology without a change in GM legislation and only time will tell if the global market is willing to pay more for a real animal product or a cruelty free, green, clean meat solution.

    The thing about a hamburger, in my view, is that it must be able to be eaten with your hands, not a knife and fork.
    This

    Doesn't make the grade.
    The whole idea of the hamburger is a portable meal. If you can't pick it up with 2 hands and eat it it's not a hamburger, it's a pile of food.
    As for the beetroot, if you haven't tried it you don't understand the new taste dimension it brings.

    How many member know this place on a Saturday night






    Hamburger Hill

    Once famous as 'the place to be seen' back in the 1960's and 1970's in your hotted up car to impress the girls dancing at the juke box.

    Once voted the best hamburgers by the night shift journo's from the Daily News and the taxi drivers for many years in a row.

    It had magnificent views of Perth before the Burswood complex was built.

    And the train station used to be known as Rivervale until they changed it's name in the 1990's.

    We would hangout there on a Saturday night in our FB & EJ's

    To be fair to the Convicts, they do a great burger.

    I had an amazing works burger up in the Northern Territories; could've fed a family for a week... Cost $5.50 which is about 25 British pence.

    You can piss those hipster-save the planet vege bullshit pretend burgers off,a disgrace
    to all true blues.
    2-3-5 show the expected standard, but as esteemed critics like Hardworx and Cujo know ,
    it must have beetroot and also it is a crime against humanity not to have pineapple.
