For those of you living on the East Coast, the concept of a diner is pretty commonplace. For those elsewhere, it’s a catch all restaurant that serves a wide array or cuisine and most of them are owned by Greek or specialize in the cuisine. Any diner worth their gyro is open 24 hours a day. In NYC, there is a diner on almost every other block and are very reliable for end of the evening snacking. The Galaxy is 2 blocks from my Hell’s Kitchen apartment and on a stumble home from an evening out with my friends, it’s glowing neon sign call out to me like a beacon.
Due to high volume, quick turnaround and a large menu, most diner serve pre-prepped food. Chances are the burger I ate was too however I have to say, for a diner burger, it was damn good. Cooked to a perfect and juicy medium rare with lettuce, onion and American cheese, the Galaxy served up a treat better than I had expected. The fries were well done, just the way I like em and even the burnt bun was easy to overlook. Late night desperation burger craving satisfied.This meal was not intended to be an official Burger Conquest but after a couple of bites, I new I had a duty to fulfill.
