New Zealand: The White Lady (Auckland)



Portland transplant TheCheeseTease shares the gospel and shows us the way:


I have never found a burger that parallels this. This is from a long white trailer, complete with white xmas lights, that gets dragged in by a tractor and dropped around the corner from Showgirls. They call it The White Lady. I regret to inform that I have never purchased the $16 Aucklander Burger, which consists of a 300-gram Scotch filet steak, and many other things I cannot possibly think to list.

Everything on their burgers comes from within a 100-km radius. Their meat has BITE; real chew. I have never tasted meat that was more meaty. They make their own buns, their own ketchup (referred to simply as "tomato sauce"). They grill their onions in meat grease. I was in the habit of sucking down one of these bitches 4-6x a week until I realized I could no longer fit into any of my clothes. I normally went for the $7.50 cheeseburger or $9.00 egg/cheese burger. Here is a photo of the latter.

Buy a plane ticket. NOW
