In Kuwait’s burger-welcoming market, infused with an exciting assortment of various burger concepts, our burger expectations have been greatly raised, and our critical evaluation of how a burger should ideally taste have evolved beyond the terms “tasty” and “delicious”. In reality however, we would propose that a good burger simply tastes good – you know a good burger when you taste it – without having to critically calculate the many ways in which any given burger is absolutely better than the next.
Tempting us to argue otherwise, there exists the faultless burger which has greatly changed the way we evaluate how a good burger should taste. Ever dreamed of tasting a burger, without thinking, albeit fleetingly, about the endless toxins that are entering your body? How many times have you breathlessly faltered whilst on your treadmill, eager to burn away the calories consumed by the irresistible french fries, which you always tend to supersize when deciding on the infamous burger meal? Introduce your taste buds to the Elevation Burger, where the guilt trip may now be eradicated on a permanent basis.
Originally conceived in 2002, founder of the Elevation Burger franchise, Hans Hess, dreamed about conceiving the immaculate burger. Opting for a quick and fast concept to suit today’s hectic existence, Hess never hesitated to prioritize the quality, rather than the quantity of how many burgers a profitable burger joint should produce on a daily basis. Instead, he focused his energy on creating a burger that truly stands apart from the rest in terms of taste, and sustainable quality. Stemming from a passion for good food that is premierily organic, sustainable and fresh, Elevation Burger was successfully introduced into the American Market in 2005. Six years later, the brand expanded to include the first branch of Elevation Burger outside of the United States that opened its doors in Kuwait in the spring of 2011.
Although it is challenging to freshly source and prepare the Elevation experience using 100 percent organic and quality ingredients, one taste of the signature Elevation Burger convinces us that such dreams are true realities. Instead of the conventionally larger and super-sized burgers we see elsewhere, we’re allowed to indulge in the smaller, yet mightily double-stacked, premium beef patties, prepared with the buttery-soft and fluffy potato bread that doesn’t compete with the tender beef. Unlike sampling other types of beef which are mass produced using modern corn-fed methods, the Elevation beef patty truly tastes of its most importantly intoxicating component: pure 100 percent grass-fed, free-range beef that is meticulously ground on location. As the facts present themselves, pure beef is emulate happier cows that aren’t instilled with antibiotics required to combat their illnesses faced by consuming a complete diet of corns and grains.
Organic fries, although we like to fool ourselves with the harsh fact that fries will always be oily, are a completely different experience when presented by Elevation Burger. Using only virgin olive oil, the true technique of creating organic fries lies deeply in the secret of preparing the fries at a specific temperature, where the end result is light and crispy golden potato strips cooked to perfection.
Weather you’re tempted to go for the original double-patty Elevation burger, complete with double and only real cheddar cheese, or going all out and opting for a Vertical burger, consisting of as many patties as you wish, we truly recommend that you prepare your senses to become ultimately elevated. Elevation Burger also offers a variety of vegetarian options as well as different choices of burger toppings allowing you to completely customize your experience. Don’t forget to complete your visit with one of the scrumptiously delicious milkshakes, prepared using freshly scooped icecream.
