A Divine Heart Attack -Zaynab Hararah
As a native San Franciscan, my mission growing up was to find the perfect burger. After sixteen years and three months, mission accomplished. I call it; well actually the founder and owner named it -- Burger Meister. Burger Meister serves as my occasional comfort food. Burger Meister is featured at the newly remodeled Westlake Shopping Center in Daly City, which is about five minutes from San Francisco State University. After this location opened, I realized that three Burger Meister restaurants lie in the Sunset District of San Francisco, five minutes away from my house.
Open since 1999, Burger Meister is a local San Francisco ...view middle of the document...

Your nose gets the first tickle, sends a signal to your brain, which immediately visualizes the burger. You begin licking your lips and imagine how good the burger will feel in your hand. You scrunch your neck towards your shoulders resisting a temptation I call “the Heart Attack.” Usually on Sundays restaurants close early, but Burger Meister is open until 11 pm every day of the week. As I walk into the restaurant about Sunday afternoon, I can already feel the bleu cheese slide off my lips and down to my chin. I usually order my burger for takeout. This may be a good idea for many who practice etiquette, but do not want to be seen feasting a half-pound burger with toppings dripping inside and out. The restaurant simply stretches into one room. The bar takes about a quarter of the room, while a vibrant mahogany wood fills the room. Clean modern decor with lots of chairs and tables. I know this burger joint gets busy during the weekends, weekday nights, and even lunch hours. Many “Best Burger of SF” awards are displayed across the walls. The vibe seems friendly and relaxed. Everyone is simply enjoying, or ready to enjoy, their ½ pound of meat. As I step forward, the hostess and cashier greet me at once.
I walk up to the cashier and he hands me a menu. I look through the menu for my usual burger. The “heart attack” consists of chili a la carne, smothered with bleu cheese and a side of curly fries. When someone has a heart attack, they basically shut down. Soon enough, hopefully, they are revitalized. The chili burger smothered with bleu cheese, not only puts you at risk for a heart attack in the future, but one bite out of this burger will tease all your senses, forcing you to shut down. You will not revive until the very last drip of chili.
After five minutes of browsing the menu I realized that it has changed. Concerned, I ask the cashier as to why the restaurant would take away my chili burger. He simply claims, “We can make any burger, any way you like,” which brings my attention to the first page of the menu “Customize your Burger.” Now, if you wish to customize your burger, you have many options. The burger itself costs $9.00 served with tomatoes, onions, pickles, on a sesame seed bun, or whole wheat bun and your choice of fries, coleslaw, or spring salad mix. Step one, you choose a pattie: ½ lb Niman Ranch Ground beef, 1/3 Turkey Burger, or Grilled Garlic Chicken Breast. For the Vegans, you may choose a Bocca Pattie. The vegetarians have the options of choosing a Garden pattie or a Grilled Portobello Mushroom pattie. Once you pick a pattie, add your toppings which vary from $.75-$1.50. Then pick your side selections. You may also have garlic fries, chili fries, or curly fries for an additional $1.75. Or you may upgrade to garlic curly fries or chili curly fries for an additional $2.50. I highly recommend trying out their curly fries...
