You may have been eating burgers wrong as this is the ‘correct’ way, people say

From chicken burgers to beef to veggie, there is a burger made for everyone.

Most pubs in the UK host them on their menu, McDonald’s Big Mac is always its bestseller, and there are hundreds of different brands stocking their ranges in our supermarkets.

But did you know we have been eating burgers wrong?

And we’re doing it for aesthetics rather than making the most out of enjoying our burgers before the bottom bun goes sloppy.

According to Simon Dukes, founder of the blog Burger Lad, we should be eating burgers upside down.

He also advised you not to eat a burger with a knife and fork and to use your hands.

Simon Dukes says we have been eating burgers wrong all along

The idea behind it is the top bun is thicker and more sturdy so can take the weight off the inside so it doesn’t all fall out or makes the bread bun go soggy.

Speaking with Insider, he said that burgers are served wrong due to aesthetics.

He told the publication: “Burgers are served the way they are purely for aesthetics.

“The crown (the top of the bun) is generally thicker (and therefore stronger) than the heel, so for a better eating experience, you should actually flip it upside-down to eat it.”

Simon continued: “The crown will then hold the weight of everything else, and there is less likelihood of it falling apart in your hands.

“A true burger connoisseur should always eat their burgers upside down.”

The tip was then shared on Reddit which saw a lot of people agree – one even said it tastes better when eaten upside down.

“As one bites down on a hamburger their tongue touches the burger from the bottom, meaning that toppings are easier to taste when a hamburger is upside down,” said the Reddit user.

They added: “The tongue will come into contact with the toppings just before the patty, which is the ideal circumstance.”
