Bacon Unwrapped

I had an awesome bacon cheeseburger for lunch yesterday...

Yesterday I ate lunch at North in Glendale, AZ with some colleagues. And I had one of the best bacon cheeseburgers I've ever eaten.

The burger was made from Angus beef, which was cooked to medium and had just the right amount of juiciness without being too sloppy nor overcooked. The cheese was a thick slice of slightly melted fresh mozzarella. The bacon was actually two pancetta slices that were cooked barely crispy and formed into little circular patterns. And while the bun is typically my least favorite part of a burger, this particular bun was pretty incredible - it was just the right thickness, the bread was light and not too chewy, and the flavor had a slight sweetness to it that went really well with the savory meats. I topped it off with just a slight amount of spicy mustard, but the texture of the bun and the combined flavors of all the ingredients really made condiments unnecessary.

I'm gonna have this burger on my brain for a long time.
