I don’t mess around when it comes to a good hamburger…but some people do

             Good Day Humboldt County!

Talk about traveling new roads and experiencing things…

Back in the late sixties, a friend and I traveled across Canada and America – for a lot of reasons – but one of our goals was to find the best hamburger in either country.

I know, I know. What a lofty goal. We sure had fun doing it, but I can’t remember what eating establishment had the best burger after all these years later.

I do recall once, while in British Columbia, we stopped at a local Mom & Pop hamburger joint and were shocked by what we thought had to be the smallest hamburger in the world! I took a photo of one nestled in my friend’s palm and it didn’t look much larger than a silver dollar.

So, it really brought back memories when I discovered the world's smallest (and cutest) combo meal – above.

It consists of a little cheeseburger with all the fixings, very small fries, and a miniscule soda. It's all real too. (Link)

Just look at what those clever Swiss people have come up with as product of the year. It's an import that is giving restaurants a run for their money according to the product’s PR department. I kind of doubt that, as I’ve yet to see this burgers in supermarkets near me. Cheeseburger In A Can (below)is touted as a tasty treat for any fan of the hearty sandwich made popular by American fast food chains or just grilled in your back yard.(Link) Hmmmmmmmm….


How about a Caviar Burger?

I can only imagine what one (left) would cost (Link).

As far as the area I live in, the best hamburger in the county is right off of Highway 101 in Arcata, California. It’s called “Toni’s” and I’m talking about great home cooking!!!

Their Blue Cheese Burger is the bomb! BTY – I am in no way affiliated with the family-owner business (wish I was), and am not getting paid to shill for them. Toni’s has the best hamburger in Humboldt County. Does anyone think differently? Don’t be afraid to share.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
