Steam Burger, Bodrum, Turkey

“Steam burger.” It’s the new taste of the world, apparently.

I had to try one.

I’d say in the simplest form, the steamed burger is an amalgamation of a small flat burger and a calzone. But without any of the good parts.

The bun was sickly sweet, and the patty was a thin little sliver of what I can only hope was meat. The whole package was moist and damp.

Actually it was wetter than that. It was properly soggy. The type  of burger where you hurry to the loo after (pah, not like that!) to wash your hands because they smell of rankness.

A few years back I tried the “wet burgers” in Istanbul. They are all the rage there (after a night out mostly). I was kind of keen. But in Bodrum? Avoid the hammam inspired sweaty boxes of glass.Stick to the kebabs. More on those soon.
