The Red Mill - Phinney Ridge
And people agree with me, Red Mill has won Seattle’s best burgers 10 years in a row, been featured in GQ and on Man vs. Food – though not during the eating challenge portion of the show (that was Beth’s 12 egg omelet).
It’s difficult to talk (or write) about what makes a burger great mostly because different people look for different things. So you know where I’m coming from, here’s what I like to see and taste in a burger:
Red Mill deliciousness
Quality Meat: You know it when you taste it. Beef should have flavor and not be a cardboard hockey puck.
Fresh veggies: Crispy lettuce and juicy tomatoes can make a world of difference.
Bun: A quality bun can go a long way – if they are homemade on site that’s even better. One of the reasons I love In n Out is the bread.
Spreads and special sauces: While I love ketchup and mustard it’s always nice when a place puts its own stamp on things.
French fries: One of my favorite foods on Earth – deep fried potatoes. It can really make or break a burger experience, nothing worse than a good burger served with frozen, soggy fries.
