On the set of Broad City, we’ve seen Abbi Jacobson do just about everything. From dancing nakedly to getting high with Kelly Rippa and getting it on with Seth Rogen, there’s not much we haven’t seen… except for eating a what most people have for lunch or dinner at least once a week.

It turns out the Broad City star has never eaten a burger.

“I’m saving this for the right moment: I’ve never eaten a hamburger”, Jacobson revealed at the 92Y, this past Sunday.

Of course, being a hamburger-virgin is a completely serious matter. It makes sense that Jacobson would want it a big deal. The actress has plans to make her first hamburger experience a major life event, searching for the perfect burger spot.

“I think it’s a fun thing to throw a party and do. I was thinking of doing it on the show at some point,” she explained. “It’s this whole thing. I’ve been polling where to do it, and I mean, years I’ve been telling people.”

But Jacobson doesn’t want to make hamburgers her new default food after the deed is done.

“I don’t think I want to eat hamburgers, but just the one. A good grassy burger,” she admits.
