Ever wondered why a hamburger was called a ham-burger? Did you know the reason why they are called hamburgers is because they got their name from Hamburg, Germany where a cut of beef called the Hamburg Steak is from. This then evolved into what we now know as the Hamburger. Here are some more quirky facts about burgers...
