5 Crazy Burger Challenges Around The Globe
Who doesn’t love a good burger? The options are endless and can satisfy even the most ferocious of appetites, but not all burgers are created equal. To celebrate World Hamburger Day, we’ve compiled five of the craziest burgers from around the globe...
Quadruple Bypass Burger at Heart Attack Grill, Las Vegas
Basically 10,000 calories of beef patties, bacon and cheese. This greasy monstrosity will help you to reach your daily calorie intake in one sitting… if you manage to finish it, that is.
Avocado Burger at Joe’s Southern Kitchen, London
For a slightly more healthy option, we head to London for a green-hued bun infused with… you guessed it, avocado! Gluten-free and low in carbs, this one might not actually be a bad option, if you can get past the green buns.
The World’s Most Expensive Burger by Diego Buik, Rotterdam
This patty will cost you a pretty penny. If you’ve got a spare $3,400 (AUD) floating around, treat your tastebuds to what’s described as “Japanese dry-aged Wagyu beef, Oosterschelde lobster infused with Dutch Hermit gin, Foie gras, white truffle, Remeker cheese, Japanese fruit tomatoes and caviar, all topped with a gold-leaf, saffron brioche bun.”
Donut Burger at Red’s True Barbecue
Can’t decide between dinner and dessert? Why not have both! This bonkers burger has a beef patty, ‘unholy’ BBQ sauce, cheese, smoked bacon, crispy onion and dirty sauce all between two sweet glazed donut. All we can say is this: it's not for the faint-hearted.
The Ramen Burger, originating in Japan
Now a worldwide foodie phenomenon, the ramen burger finds it origins in the hinterlands of Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture. With two buns made up of ramen noodles, filled with... well, whatever you want really. For the authentic experience, head to Furusato-tei restaurant’s version in Kitakata City – pork filling with soy-flavoured sauce. Otherwise, your local city is sure to have at least one (still delicious) copy-cat attempt.
