World's first lab-grown burger is eaten in London
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23576143
Quote
The world's first lab-grown burger was cooked and eaten at a news conference in London on Monday.

Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle that they combined to make a patty.
...
The professor said the meat was made up of tens of billions of lab-grown cells. Asked when lab-grown burgers would reach the market, he said: "I think it will take a while. This is just to show we can do it."

Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, has been revealed as the project's mystery backer.

I forgot to point out these passages. After each, be sure to exclaim, "That's what she said!" with a big smirk on your face.  Bring your own!

Quote
Upon tasting the burger, Austrian food researcher Ms Ruetzler said: "I was expecting the texture to be more soft... there is quite some intense taste; it's close to meat, but it's not that juicy. The consistency is perfect, but I miss salt and pepper."

She added: "This is meat to me. It's not falling apart."

Food writer Mr Schonwald said: "The mouthfeel is like meat. I miss the fat, there's a leanness to it, but the general bite feels like a hamburger.

"What was consistently different was flavour."
Since my worst food poisoning bouts were from undercooked hamburgers, I wonder whether an undercooked "lab burger" still makes you sick? paranoid

I would probably prefer these.  The only way I eat hamburger is if itís been blackened in a cast iron frying pan until it crunches.

My digestive tract proudly reports that I consumed two undercooked Niman Ranch slider burgers -- I gave them 13+ minutes (turned over about every 4) on an oven top grilling pan that's always been sufficient before -- for dinner last night and did not puke my guts out.  icon_smile

I took one bite and looked at it under the lamp and thought, "OMG! How is this not thoroughly cooked?" And then I ate the rest of it anyway.

Bspot.com. Nuff said. Micheal Simons fast foodish option here in cleveland. Good beers on tap and excellent burgers fries. Pricey, but happy hour is awesome. Btw, five guys kind of sucks. My wife likes it but she has bad taste. She married me afterall...

This. Bspot. Seriously, after moving to Cleveland it was a godsend to find this place. I love the pickled everything/relish bar.

However, I like fiveguys, sorry it's solid, and they started near my home.

Cleveland, though, has a lot of great burger places. Winking Lizard, Hyde Park, Clevelander, Johnny's little Bar, BGR9, and just recently there is a "soul food" place downtown on Prospect that has solid burgers. There a lot of secondary places too. Great foodie town all around.


granted I like my own burger too, usually some mixture of Turkey, Italian Sausage, Lamb, Veal, Bison, seasonings, binder of some sort like an egg or bread crumbs, and toppings, ridiculous toppings. Just found this stuff called wild brine, like a relish/kraut/pickled cabbage mixture, several varieties. Makes for some good burgers and samiches.

I tried a cheeseburger (see photo) for dinner last night, with a side of sweet potato fries, at a Smash Burger in Virginia (it's a growing, national chain of gourmet burger joints):
http://smashburger.com/our-food/

Their schtick is they "smash" a ball of ground beef on the grill, so it's perhaps a little wider than typical burgers and doesn't have that "pre-formed/cookie cutter" look. Some folks insist doing that sort of thing ("smashing" a patty on a grill) squeezes out flavorful juices, so I don't know if the "smash" part is good or bad.

I enjoyed the burger. Because it's not flame grilled it doesn't maybe taste as distinctive as at BGR or other places that cook over a gas or charcoal grill. The toppings are fresh, and I kind of like that they put them on the other bun half (per the photo) and let you "complete" the burger at your table. Yes, like a McDLT, minus all the styrofoam!  icon_cool

I do find that as with other places of this ilk, the bottom bun half is just not up to staying intact due to the juiciness of the burger. So by the time I finished it, the bottom bun was soggy and falling apart. Although the web site indicates you can choose your bun (egg bun, brioche, etc.), I wasn't given any choices.

The sweet potato fries are great, if expensive ($2.49) though like most gourmet burger places they probably give you enough for 2-3 people to share.

Their ordering computer system was down so fountain drinks were at least free. That's really where these places screw you, charging $1.50-$2 for a lousy cup of soda.  icon_neutral
