No doubt about it, burgers are great. But they quickly ramp up from great to awesome with the addition of two little toppings – bacon and cheese.
And every brilliant burger joint has its own take, to turn up the taste just a bit more. At Burger Office, you'll find a two-cheese version, Burger Joint New York offer a single or a double, and Omakase Burger serve up the staple or an amped-up alternative.

Ideally, the burger patty will be tender but juicy and full of flavour. Only prime ground beef will do. Then, it's time to take care of the toppings.

The 20s staple
Hamburgers are an American staple. Loaded with cheese, topped with bacon and stuffed in a bun, that US classic comes alive. As a popular food from the late 20s, the history of the cheeseburger creation is blurred. But whoever first topped that tender patty with a slice of cheese deserves a medal.

As one of the most popular topping combinations in burger joints around the world, the bacon-cheese choice is also fun to customise. Burger Joint New York offer theirs as a single or double patty, and give the option of heating things up with some jalapeño on top too.
