British burger, British Pound; both show recent signs of strength
A UK comfort food hub in the Upper East is dishing up it’s take on the Yanks’ most fundamental asset; hamburger. The market sentiment is that a British take on a burger is just as a controversial as the current LIBOR fixing scandal. The meat is a mix of dry-aged steak cuts and, mild spices, pan-seared instead of grilled. The combination yields a rather peculiar consistency comparable to that of a meatball –analysts presume that breadcrumbs and egg are integrated into the patty. The overall ‘JWF burger’ was officially stamped with the royal seal when served with a side of London style ‘chips’, stewed tomato and the Queen’s flag flying high atop the bun.
The debatable flavor and odd consistency of meat may be on par with Great Britain’s struggles with GDP, inflation and public unrest. However, the overall distinction of the burger is closely correlated with the recent strength in the Pound, making this a good choice for customers looking to experiment with a growing trend.
