Ah, burgers- one of life's simplest joys. Today until Saturday the 30th, The Bistro Truck and Jennie-O Turkey Store are teaming up to give away at least 500 free burgers per day, every day until Saturday.
Their delicious partnership hopes to sway people towards turkey burgers, which are leaner and healthier than the traditional red-meat burgers we know and love. I'm already a fan of turkey burgers, so it looks like I know what's for lunch this week.
Here's a list of locations and descriptions of the burgers at each respective spot, thanks to New York Street Food:
"Tuesday, July 26 – Hudson Street and King Street – The Mulberry Street Turkey Burger – A turkey patty topped with homemade marinara sauce, and finished with premium parmesan cheese.
Wednesday, July 27 – Union Square Farmer’s Market (15th St) – The Flatiron Turkey Burger – Made by thin-slicing portobello and oyster mushrooms, sautéing everything with a blend of herbs and spices, and placing it on top of a cooked turkey patty, which is topped with cheddar cheese and sliced avocado.
Thursday, July 28 – Old Slip Street and Water FIDI - The Brooklyn-Style Turkey Burger – A turkey burger sprinkled with oregano, cumin and chili powder, cooked, and fried red onions and cheddar cheese are added.
Friday, July 29 – 52nd Street and Park Avenue – The Bronx Turkey Burger – A turkey patty is placed on the grill. As it cooks, it’s topped with blackened poblano peppers and charred scallions. Then it’s served with spicy mayo and a creamy cheese sauce.
Saturday, July 30 – Washington Street and Gansevoort Street – The East Village Turkey Burger – A simple turkey burger patty mixed with panko (or “punko” as Yassir calls it) and parsley before cooking, then served with thin slice of cucumber, bean sprouts and brie."
Burgers will start being served at 11 am, so get there early to get your free burger! That Flatiron burger sounds amazing...nom.
