Teddy's Bigger Burgers
Customized burgers c/o Hawaii.
The Hawaiian franchise is the mall-based burger import it’s OK to frequent. Head here for no-nonsense, greasy, piled-high then glued-shut-with-cheese burgers like you see in Hollywood films. Order it medium-rare (exactly how it comes) and the quality of the meat stands up perfectly to its light grill treatment. The only contentious thing is the bun, which is weirdly pale, but the last thing this burger needs is more richness.
Teddy’s, a Hawaiian burger franchise which has since spread across America and to a few spots in Asia, deals in the kind of no-nonsense, greasy, piled-high then glued-shut-with-cheese burgers which those of us who didn’t grow up in the States could only ever look at in films and dream of one day tasting. Think about the “big kahuna” scene in Pulp Fiction and you’ll have a Teddy’s burger in your mind. They arrive at your table in little greaseproof paper pouches to catch the various fatty drips of cheese, sauce and meat juice, as well as with a plate and knife and fork to counter the inevitable collapse of the bun.
