So what makes a great burger? According to chef Tony Chu:

"A perfect burger is a burger that has the right amount of beefy meat funk, a.k.a. umami. It is moist with a crispy semi-charred surface and made with a soft moist bread with nutty nuances. But the real question is how to make a perfect burger. Making the perfect burger is all about understanding what the cuts of beef really taste like and blending them to create the ultimate meat profile: gamey, rich, grassy, cheesy, beefy, and nutty. The burger should be somewhat greasy. The bite of the burger should be soft and moist, yet it should not fall apart and disintegrate in your hands. The burger meat should have some springy bounce."
