At first, you might think that Ken's Market is a normal supermarket. And it is. But every Thursday at 11am, the deli counter at this Greenwood grocery store transforms into a burger joint, complete with griddle hisses and Maillard reaction smells wafting throughout the cereal aisle. And the smashburgers are a tour de force. Even after warming under a heat lamp, the lacy patty keeps its Butterfinger-like snap, shredded lettuce stays crisp, and yellow american fuses to the thousand island-y special sauce. If you want a just-seared one, try pretending to peruse the nearby wine displays until a new batch is ready.
