Hamburg Steak Malabar

I am curious to know how the name for this dish came about - Hamburger with a fried egg on top. It follows a discussion about hamburgers (which the great unwashed and a few others call beefburgers). I am assuming it was born on SS Malabar.

I fed 'Malabar' into my 'Search' and it came-up with a 'Burger-joint', in a town (in the States), called Malabar. So I wonder if that's where your burger comes from and not the Brock ship. Cheers, Phil

That's an interesting take, Phil.

Are you by any chance related to John Shuttleworth on the BBC? He has more than his fair share of strange ideas, a family strength one imagines.

In a word, "no". There are a few dotted around but it's still not quite the same as asking that question about a Smith, Brown or Jones!

I did a trip on the Malabar and do not recall ever having it on the menu or spoken about. Cheers Roger

Without wishing to sound snobbish the food on all Brock ships, I was on, were of a much higher class than 'burgers'.

In fact I think MY first taste of a 'burger', (and hot-dogs!), would be on my first trip to the States.

Didn't we call 'burgers' rissoles in this Country? Phil

Hamburger steak - Originally German and should contain just beef and onion.

Rissole - Originally French - Contains any meat, veg, so basically 'leftovers' rolled in breadcrumbs, or even spare pastry, and fried.

British Rissole - just a local adaptation using whatever comes to hand but likely low in meat.

As they say in "O" Level papers, compare and contrast.......

1. Compare and Contrast a British Chip Shop Rissole with a Saveloy.

From what gutter must one hail to demand that one dresses to dine on anything ending in 'ssole'.

The ratio of Michelin Stars to Ronald McDonald's on Dodgy Mona is not in our favour. And remember the locals are so "British" they don't know of the term "Tux", try Black Tie or Dinner Jacket. Strange place to look for a BOGOF, try a BagOff.

After three now (after me. Not after Flanders and Swann!) ....

The British, the British, the British are best. I couldn't give tuppence for all of the rest!

One story is that it was HLM Edward VII's appearance in the Tuxedo club in New York when PoW that made evening dress popular.

(an aside.....)

A late friend of mine was summoned to serve where Morning Dress was required more often than the occasional wedding. He went to Saville Row to enquire. When asked why Sir required such an expensive outfit to own he explained (it was not unrelated to Buck House). He was directed to another of the same company's outlets and told to ask for their 'distressed Gentlemen's' range.

WRT Michelin Stars. At last we agree. Perhaps a Michelin Black Hole? (although the lockdown food parcels I have receive from an Irish Lady in Onchan might qualify).

Rissoles on the menu, the Chief asked the Steward for a pair of pissholes, the Tiger promptly put on his glasses and informed the Chief, "It is an R Sir". "Right, then bring me a pair of Arseholes!"
