A Burger a Day in May: Dorothy Moon’s Triple Decker Cures Hangovers

Fear not the street meats. This messy sandwich will help you forget last night’s sins.

Welcome to Hangover Hamburger Friday, in which, throughout May, we’ll share the meatiest, greasiest, booze-soakingest belly bombs we can get our shaky little hands on.

First up: a triple stack of street meat from Dorothy Moon’s Gourmet Burgers. The DC-based Dorothy truck sounds innocent enough, but that’s before you get to ordering three fresh beef patties on a sesame seed bun, decked out with unlimited toppings such as mushrooms, smoky bacon, cheddar, Sriracha sauce, and a fried egg. There’s no brioche-based Richard-ification of the burger here: This sandwich is an unqualified mess, and we mean this in the best way possible. Those with a little more self-restraint–and a little less booze-induced malaise–can opt for one or two patties ($6 and $8 respectively, or $10 for three).

Typically Dorothy Moon orbits around areas like Farragut Square, L’Enfant, and Union Station. She’ll be doling out beefy deliciousness at the Curbside Cookoff tomorrow alongside 45 of her closest friends.
