Samuel L. Jackson’s Quest For A Tasty Burger In The U.K.

When Samuel L. Jackson visited London in the 1980s, he was having trouble finding a good “American hamburger,” according to a report from The Daily Telegraph. In fact, it was so bad that he wanted to “scream.”

“The food has gotten so much better since the 80s,” Jackson said. “When I first started coming here, I could scream.”

Jackson didn’t specify where he now gets a hamburger, when he visits London. But he said he didn’t “have to go to Wendy’s” to find one.

“Now, if I want an American hamburger, I know where to find one,” he added. “I don’t have to go to Wendy’s.”

Fans of Pulp Fiction may recall the famous scene in which Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Jules Winnfield, takes a bite out of Brett’s burger from Big Kahuna Burger, after he and Vincent Vega break into Brett’s apartment. Unfortunately, the restaurant in the Quentin Tarantino film is not a real place. But The Shortlist does offer a recipe that the website claims to be “the second best thing.”

Speaking of Pulp Fiction, the same scene in which Samuel L. Jackson takes a bite out of the burger is also the moment in which he gives his famous Ezekiel 25:17 speech. During an appearance last week on The Graham Norton Show, Jackson recited the speech without any missteps.

Take a look at both versions of the speech below. Warning: the Pulp Fiction scene is NSFW (not safe for work).
