Yesterday, being a bit hungover, I had a strong craving for hamburger. Yes, this former vegetarian really, really wanted a hamburger. So I ordered one. Because we were not going to leave the house – See BAB Easter vs. BAC Easter. Ok, so I didn’t exactly order it – I asked my husband to order it for me and then I begged him to go downstairs and collect it when it arrived. (He made me add this part.)
I was really excited to see they had a hamburger with cheddar cheese on the online menu. Yum. So I selected this particular burger with french fries.
Since this was an award winning burger restaurant I never though twice about any flaws in my delicious plan.
The burger arrived. I took a bite. It was covered in yellow processed cheese.
Had I been in the U.S., somebody who ran a restaurant would have gotten an angry phone call and somebody’s delivery boy would have been back in a flash to pick up the yellow processed cheese covered burger.
But I’m in Brazil. So I did like the Brazilians do and ate a hamburger with non-cheese instead of cheddar cheese. It definitely tainted my burger experience. I don’t know how the Brazilians put up with it. What’s a good burger without good cheese? Huh? Even crappy place in the U.S. like Taco Bell use real cheddar cheese… right?
Oh well. I still ate it. I guess I’ll stick to making my own burgers… or just go back to being a vegetarian.
