America. One name, multiple values, existences and, multiple sub-cultures. Among them, surely movies and art are a blossoming up-tide. Right on top America. Google’s home, Facebook’s land. The land of the great Abe, the place where Nikola Tesla breathed his last. The land of the Great Grand Canyon, Bob Dylan, The Doors, the Sin-City, the great bustle of Hollywood; the dominion of Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
And above anything else- the land of the brave, the home to the free. America is a feeling, an emotion, a vibe and, an expression that exists in multiple identities.
But the above told, is that the only sub-culture that defines America? How about food? The American soft-power exists non-surreptitiously through a whole bunch of eatables; brands that have transformed the way the world eats.
Whether it’s the great slice of bread from the Connecticut-based SubWay, the chicken hamburger from the great McDonald’s, the chicken wings of KFC or Chicago Pizza- America exists in our life through a cultural milieu of food in a hitherto less-seen way. It grows on us. It’s contagious and, above anything else- it’s liberating in a sense.
So implicit has been the cultural exchange of the world’s favourite meals with America that one may never see the love for burgers come down. Perhaps, not even a tiny tad bit.
In that regard, it only makes sense to catch the next flight to America and get a load of about 10 separate burgers that have been ranked fantastically for their tremendous taste by none other than TripAdvisor.
Let’s come clean on that one. The love for burgers may originally have emerged from the United States only to have gone popular around the world, soon after, but it’s something so intricate like a bond with a girl-friend. It’s about love; it’s about passion for food. It may not be the healthiest choice of food one could have but nonetheless, let’s face it folks- it’s hard to resist a great, juicy, delectable burger. Isn’t it?
You read that right. And in case, you were wondering what are those choicest burger joints that have been rated so highly, so here it is. But before that, keep your travel itinerary ready and pack your bags and take to the skies.
