Best burgers in Saint Louis

It is believed that the word “hamburger” came from the name of the German second largest city-Hamburg. According to this version, the recipe came to America from Hamburg together with German immigrants. That type of hamburger was a piece of fried pork in bread.Another version says that the hamburger was called after the city of Hamburg, which is situated in the New York state. In 1885, two brothers, at a fair,which was held in the American Hamburg, offered roasted beef cutlet, which was served between two buns. They say that the brothers had no pork sausages left, (which they were putting in sandwiches), and they decided to replace it with beef, which was left.

For the first time in New York’s eatery, the term “hamburger” was used in 1834. The popularity of the dish, which was growing every day, led to the fact that one way or another many people wanted to be a part of its invention. Many Americans and the culinary experts of other countries claimed the authorship of the creation of this dish. Ultimately, it ended up with the fact that the hamburger became a dish with one of the most intricate histories.

In 1900, inthe city of New Haven, a cook, whose name was Louis Lessing, made his first hamburger. Louis wasaskedto prepare some hot and quick dish. Using minced meat, Louis molded a cutlet and fried it on the grill. The misleading thing is that the cook served the meat between two slices of toast, not between buns. Considering this fact, some culinary critics refuse to admit that Louis was the person, who made the first hamburger. Nevertheless, in the year 2000,the only person, who cooked the first Americanburger,by the version of the Library of Congress, was namedLessing.

However, Fletcher Davis,a cook from Athens (Texas), who put a fried cutlet with onions and mustard between two slices of bread in 1880, considered himself another inventor of the hamburger. Widely known burgers became in 1904 at the fair in Saint Louis, where Fletcher and his wife sold their burgers.
