Here at Spin247 we’ve been playing through our amazing online slots game, Burger Man, and it inspired us to see what weird burgers some strange people just love to eat! Here you’ll find the answer to that musing, from the weird and wonderful, to the downright bizarre – so read on food lovers, and be sure to let us know what you think of these concoctions:
The Original Ramen Burger can be purchased from the Ramen Shack in Long Island City, New York, and is exactly what it says on the tin. With primed beef nestled between two noodle-buns and seasoned with a beautiful shoyu glaze, it combines an American demand for delicious burgers with a touch of the Oriental – a deliberate intention of the creator, Keizo Shimamoto.
Stuffing & Cranberry Sauce Burger
This thanksgiving-themed burger is available all year round at Wahlburgers – they currently have franchises all over America. This burger takes a turkey burger, and pairs it with stuffing, mayo, orange and cranberry sauce, as well as roasted butternut squash. Would this be a hit or a miss? Here at Spin247, we may just be considering a hit… If we’re ever in the area, that is.
The Mac Daddy Burger
This weird and wonderful creation consists of: pulled beef short rib, a double brisket & dry aged steak burger topped with mac and cheese, as well as espresso-spiked BBQ sauce. You can find all of this within a seeded brioche bun and on the menu of any Dirty Bones restaurant within London. Would you dare to try this?
Avo Bun Burger
This is the signature dish over at London’s Avobar, and is made up of an avocado bun, a sweet potato & red lentil patty, topped with a coconut & herb dressing and finished off with a vegan slaw. Who here is an avocado lover? If you are, this might just be the burger for you!
Over in Philadelphia, you can find in Village Whiskey a burger made of Angus beef topped with a Maple Bourbon-Glazed Cipollini Onions, Rouge Bleu Cheese, Applewood Bacon and Foie Gras. Points if you can pronounce everything on that list! They even sell duck fat fries, which might accompany the Whiskey King quite nicely.
Sesame Crusted Tuna Burger
Ditch Plains over in New York offer up this sesame crusted tuna burger on a bed of pickled carrots, guacamole and jalapeño aioli. Could this be heavenly, or hellish? We’ve never quite understood the allure of warm tuna before…
The Original Waffle Burger
Over at Bird in London, the chefs have pooled several foods into a combination that will sing to the heart of any American. Combining fried chicken, bacon, cheese, BBQ sauce, mayo, hot sauce and maple syrup, all served between two waffles… it may be a heart attack waiting to happen, but is it something you’d try?
Here at Spin247, we mostly plan on sticking to the calorie-free online slots game, Burger Man, but if you get hungry while playing it, at least you’ll have an idea about what to order!
