Why is Burger Day celebrated?

It is an initiative to celebrate this highly popular food and the favorite of many in the world. May 28 was chosen because, it is said, on a day like this, but in the year 1900, a German immigrant living in the United States, named Louis Lassen, prepared for the first time this dish as it is known today: a combination of bread, meat, tomato, cheese and lettuce.

The hamburger arrived in Mexico in the 1930s, when international restaurants began to include it on their menu. Much later, in 1985, the famous fast food chain, McDonald's arrived in Mexican territory and the consumption of these became massively popular.

Fun fact: Did you know that the most expensive hamburger in the world was made by Dutch chef Diego Buik? The sandwich was valued at 2,300 euros (about 55,800 Mexican pesos). It was made with Japanese Wagyu beef, Hebit Dutch Coastal gin-infused Oosterschelde lobster, Remeker cheese, and white truffles.
