Moroccans make their hamburgers smaller and eat them without a bun . They serve them with crusty bread and a host of salads, dips and sides–mezze style, if you would. They take a bite of the burger followed by a few pieces of bread dipped in the various accompaniments. It’s a very tasty way to enjoy a burger though I must say that I love having it American-style as well.
