We ate at Hi-Life in Ballard Saturday, and the husband had the Thundering Hooves burger. It was goooood! Really juicy, well prepared, good fat content, but not too greasy. We basically fought over how much is sharing and how much is stealing.
Hubert Keller, chef-owner of San Francisco– and Las Vegas–based restaurant Fleur de Lys and a television mainstay (Secrets of a Chef, Top Chef, Top Chef Masters), is obsessed with hamburgers, as any self-respecting Frenchman should be. Here he generously shares some of his secrets. (More can be found in his book Burger Bar: Build Your Own Ultimate Burgers.)
