New Name. New Look. New Diet.

  For the past 5 years, I’ve been giving all my time and effort towards my first blog and this is the first time I have posted here in over a year. Wow! Since I’m finding it harder to wax philosophical about running as I am injured yet again, and since I recently got a job in the food…

Burger Review: The Melt

When the good people at The Melt contacted me and asked if I would stop by their new San Francisco location and try their revamped menu, I emphatically responded, “YES!” Already a fan of The Melt and their absolutely delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, I was eager to give their new burgers a try. I was greeted with…

Burger Review: Doc’s of the Bay

Since reviving this blog, I’ve gotten lots of invites from friends to grab a burger sometime and was happy to get just such an invite upon returning from vacation to try Doc’s of the Bay. I hadn’t heard of Doc’s before but as I am currently obsessed with any and everything food truck related, we…

Pretty Pinecrest Patties

I just returned from 3 blissful weeks at our family cabin in Pinecrest and I am happy to say that I accomplished my goal of eating as many burgers as possible. If you’re on vacation with a cold beer in hand and a hot grill on deck,  a burger is really and truly the most…

Burger Review: Mooyah

If you read my other blog or know me in real life, you know I injured my stupid foot running. As I enjoy running a great deal, having an injury is a super bummer for me and as a result, not only have I been forced to lay around and rest (which means I have…

Burger Review: Christopher’s

After burning a trillion calories at my 6am spin class this morning, after breakfast, I was hungry again by 11am; however, it wasn’t until 11:50 that I was able to step foot into Christopher’s Burgers on College Avenue here in Oakland.  (Since spin class is every Wednesday, I figure that’s the day of the week…

Burger Review: Flipside

I bought a HUMONGOUS pallet of gorgeous strawberries yesterday and have been working hard to concoct some delicious recipes but realized that it would be pretty silly to start a blog called The Hamburger Blogger and then write about strawberries so, to kick-off, here’s my first burger review: Flipside on Lakeshore Avenue here in Oakland. Since I’m in…

The Hamburger Blogger Has Arrived

As of tomorrow, I will have had my 1st blog for one whole year and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to start another blog about an entirely different subject!  A subject that most of the free world already writes about… you might have already guessed from the title… yes.. this…
