Spaghetti versus Burger

Updated on November 03, 2013

I love them both

Well, things have change so much. Gone were the days were we have to wait for a food to be cooked considering that nowadays, fast food chains have ruled the streets. Even some classy restaurants have adjusted some of their ways to serve the food fast.

But two of the most common things, I like are burger and spaghetti. I like them because they taste great and they are now readily available in every corner of the street. This is the reason why, I have decided to write about it and see for myself, which among the two are preferred by people.

Spaghetti for the young and adult

Spaghetti is aIways present in most celebrations. From birthdays, weddings, baptism, fiestas and all other events, its seems like its the perfect food to prepare. It's not that expensive and basically easy to prepare. Children loves spaghetti so much, especially the sweet style preparation. So and so that now you can even buy sweet style spaghetti sauce.

In my case, I love the Italian style and normally do not add much of the pork. I love it with more tomato and spices. Well, the great thing about it is you always have the option what to put when you are the one preparing. Sometimes, I replace the pork with tuna.

I do find the spaghetti more of a snack food. It provides a light fill on the stomathis then is the reason why, I take it more during snacks time.

Hamburger for all!

I would say that hamburger is like candy this days. You would find a burger stall in almost every corner around the street. There are even those that come as buy one take one and though quite tasty indeed.

There are also those that are served in restaurants and obviously cost a higher than the ones in the street. But yes if course, they are of better quality and most of them are even made pure meat rather than a meat mix with extenders.

Well, I eat both kinds depending on my budget and depending on what is available. But for as long as I the time time and I am in my home, I make my own patty. I usually buy the beef and grind it and make my own. I find it more satisfying and believe it or not, I even substitute it for my meal. as you can see, burgers can really fill the stomach. I do add on some lettuce, tomato, catsup, hot sauce and spices.

My choice.....

I do love both as I your told you earlier. When I want a heavy fill, then I would go for the burger and when I want some light snacks, I go for the spaghetti. But sometimes, I do take both in one single meal.

But if only I have to make a single choice, then I guess the hamburger will be the one on top and spaghetti would be the second. So how about you? What would be your choice?

Spaghetti or Burger?

Which do you prefer if you have to choose only one...

      Great hub. Different. I like spaghetti better as I am not a big meat eater.

      I do not buy from street corners as I would not trust what would go into it.

      I prefer all homemade and would love to go back to the old days when it was all garden and homemade food.

      If you have recipes for either or both you should toss them on your hub.

      Thank you

      I also like spaghetti but I try to have a lot of veggies in my sauce and it has to be home made. I will never eat hamburgers, but I love the image of the hamburger stand. Well done.

      If you like burgers and spaghetti, I have to ask if you have tried pizza? It's my favourite takeaway food.

      Hmm- tough one. Well, I'm a vegetarian, so I'd choose a burger providing it was a veggie burger...But then again spaghetti with garlic and oil is absolutely delicious. Soooo I'm going to go with spaghetti!! :)

      While my husband would choose hamburgers, spaghetti is my choice. I like your idea of adding tuna. Voted up!

      Hi Elias, I think we are on the same train. I do love spaghetti but surely I would go for burger if I want a heavy fill. Thanks for the comment.

      I really love spaghetti and any kind of pasta dish for sure. A good burger is good every now and then, but I try to stay away from red meat as much as possible. I use ground turkey in my spaghetti.

      Interesting hub.

      Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Difficult to choose---Well, I like both. Very different topic for a hub and nicely done as well.

      Fast foods have made life easy, no doubt, whatever the health experts may say. If one can avoid over indulgence, they are too good.

      Voted up as interesting!

      thanks chitrangada, fastfoods do make our life easier but they also affect our health. I think the best thing to do is control ourselves and as much as possible come up with our own.

      I would always go for the burger, as I prefer to eat protein rather than carbohydrate, if possible.

      I love spaghetti and this reminds me it is about time for some. I use to put hamburger in it because I could have my hamburger with most of the fat cooked out but then discovered I love it just as well without and with the world economy plus health issue, may as well get use to being a veggiholic. lol ^

      I couldn't vote in your poll because I like them both and would hate to think that I could only choose one.

      Hi peggy, well the choices are just for the survey. But surely you can take both of them. Thanks for the visit.

      If it were a choice between fastfood spaghetti or hamburger, I'd go for the latter. But if it were a choice between real Italian spaghetti or real American hamburger, I'd go for the former. This was a fun piece. Filipinos are always choosing between the two. BTW, I also cut the noodles on spaghetti. The Italians would probably love to kill me for that, hahahaha
