I have fond childhood memories of White Castle. I'd occasionally accompany my dad to work at the car dealership he managed in Yonkers, New York, and it was one of the closest places to grab lunch. I loved how the buns' inside parts got wet and sticky, how they clung to those little bits of reconstituted onion. Krystal burgers have the same appeal, but White Castle burgers always existed in my mind as the genuine article and, therefore, slightly better.
So, I recently reintroduced White Castle to my shitfood diet and I can now tell you precisely what the difference is between Krystal and White Castle ... there is no discernable difference between the burgers at Krystal and those at White Castle. People prefer whichever burger they were raised on. And despite White Castle being my first, Krystal was in my life longer, and I absolutely prefer it.
And there are reasons beyond the burgers ...
— White Castle's onion rings were hideous. Really bitter and gross. Krystal doesn't have onion rings, which is fine. If you're not going to do it right don't do it at all.
— Krystal Chiks are very, very good. Try one with the usual pickle and mayo, but add bacon. It's really something.
— White Castle spent the summer trying to push its "saucy" BBQ sliders, and that just sounds awful.
Which do you prefer and why? Or do both make you want to puke? There are no wrong answers in the world of small, square burgers.
@TheGorgeousJR: "[It is] very inexpensive; we sell it at the shop. You can get it…
Where can you buy caul fat?
This looks amazing. However, I see a bell pepper on the counter, and bell pepper…
Love pork belly.
Some food just doesn't photograph well, even if it is tasty.
Nothing wrong with grease on the walls if the burger is tasty.
