The good news is that our trip to Kensington Market was rewarded with the most flavorful hamburger patty we have had in some time. The meat was lean but not so lean that it was dry. Probably the decisive factor was that the meat was cooked only to medium rare. Unlike many burger places, Burger Bar grinds its own meat and is therefore, under health department regulations, not compelled to cook its patties to well done. Alas, the interior of the bun was so slick that the delectable meat kept squirting out. When you are eager to consume, who wants to waste precious time reconstructing the meal? The ambitious kitchen staff makes the ketchup. This plus is not so positive as the product seems overcooked, concentrating the spices and creating an acrid rather than fresh tomato taste.
