I Have Found the Perfect Bun for Burgers

EarlyBird | Sep 29, 2010 12:05 PM


In the past I have raved about the Nancy Silverton burger blend created and sold by Huntington Meats in the Farmer's Market at 3rd and Fairfax. It is nearly impossible to make a bad burger out of this perfectly ground combination of different cuts of beef laced with just the right amount of fat.

And wouldn't you know, I also stumbled upon the Perfect Bun for Burgers in the Farmer's Market too, made by Thee's Bakery.

The bun is a critical part of any burger. I love brioche buns but find them too bready for burgers, and usually too small to hold a good-sized patty. The standard white, mass produced burger buns are too soft and disintegrate. And a whole wheat bun for a burger? No way.

Enter Thee's Bakery's Perfect Burger Bun. It is a simple white bun, baked that day, and sturdy and large enough to stand up to a large patty. If I ran a burger joint these would be the only buns I would ever use, along with the aforementioned burger blend.

Oh, each bun is .75 cents each. Expensive, but worth it.
