This week in Newport, RI, is Burger Bender. It is an event by Discover Newport where local restaurants enter a burger into a week-long competition where diners vote on their favorite burger. This year, there are 52 burgers broken down into three categories.

Full details on all the burgers can be found here.

So far, I’ve managed to try five burgers, and when the week ends, I’ll post my review for all of the ones I’ve tried. My current favorite is from Yagi Noodles: Filet-O Ebi, which was my first, but the bun did it. It’s homemade.

This is my second week trying burgers, but my first year taking it seriously and attempting to get through a bunch of burgers and try more than just a few. Only several days are left, so it’s a race to try as many as possible.
