Akaushi Cheeseburger With Herbed Mayo

The burger: ABC Kitchen's cheeseburger featured Bloomsday, a cheese similar to cheddar, only softer; baby arugula, herbed mayonnaise, and house-pickled jalapeño slices on a sesame bun. Although it was more medium-well than medium-rare, there was no denying that the meat was soft, juicy, tender, and flavorful. I couldn't stop eating the addictively crispy, not-too-thick-or-thin fries, either.

My takeaway: Use the best-quality meat you can find. ABC Kitchen's burger featured Akaushi, a Japanese Wagyu breed that was sustainably raised in Texas.
