“Eating a burger upside-down allows the thicker bun to the absorb the juices”

On “10 Life Hacks You Need To Know For Summer!” by The King of Random (Grant Thompson), broadcast on YouTube on uly 25, 2013, it was suggested to eat a hamburger upside-down. The advantage is that the top bun is usually thicker and better able to handle the juices.

A disadvantage is that parts might fly out if the hamburger is taken from the plate and flipped upside-down. Lettuce might fall out, and the sesame seeds of a bun (if seeded) might also come out. Also, eating a hamburger upside-down looks awkward to many people.

“Eating a burger upside-down is the proper way as it allows the thicker bun to the absorb the juices therefore making it less messy to eat” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 22, 2020.

According to life hacks expert Grant Thompson - who likes to be known as the ‘King of Random’ - the best way to eat your burger is upside down.

See, usually the top part of a hamburger bun is wider, thicker and sturdier than the bottom half - plus it has less to contend with as it sits on top of the filling rather than underneath it all.

One of the main reasons for this flip-side way of eating a burger is that the crown, or top of the bun, is usually thicker than the bottom, or heel.

The thicker, top part of the burger bun, food experts say, can better withstand all the meat and vegetable juices and condiments than the thinner bottom of the bun that gets soggier more quickly.

In fact, eating a burger upside down is the correct way to eat a burger since the top bun is thicker. If you flip it upside down the juices absorb into the top bun, opposed to the thin bun. Therefore, the bottom (thin) bun will not break or become soggy if a burger is upside down

Eating a burger upside-down is superior because the bottom bun doesn’t turn into a soggy mess. The top bun also absorbs more of the toppings and gets a richer flavor.
