You might have read this post on Crazy Pizzas You Might Want to Try. Well, to continue the wild and crazy series about food, here are some burger variants you might have once thought were too weird to be true. While the previous post may have some homemade wonders, these burgers are all for sale and are being served up in various fast food chains.
In a double whammy-type situation, KFC gives us two unique burgers that are sure to raise eyebrows. The first is the Double Down burger. Most patrons of the fast food franchise may already be familiar with the tasty delight. Instead of burger buns, the Colonel decided to have two chicken filets sandwiching some bacon, cheese and sauce. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then I don’t know what will. This cholesterol-packed menu item was first announced during April Fools day. What a lovely prank.
The other concoction thought up by KFC execs in the Philippines is the Cheese Top Burger. The name says it all. Instead of having the slice of cheese in the middle of the sandwich, it was placed on top. Now, this seems like an April Fools joke to me. The new item garnered a lot of buzz (and criticism) for it’s head-scratching concept. It even got a spot on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. They do say that there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
Another Filipino first is the Chow Pao. Quite similar to the Chinese Meaty Buns or Siopao, this burger has an oriental twist. Instead of the steamed buns in the Chinese dish, these are fried and then filled with various meats, and veggies.
For those who have a sweet tooth, Krispy Kreme has something right up your alley. Part dessert and part main course, their burgers mix sweet and savory. Though I don’t recommend this dish for frequent consumption, it’s alright to indulge once in a while. Just don’t forget to exercise afterwards to keep your body from telling the world how much you love burgers.
That’s it for now! If you know some other funky burgers out there, hit the comments section and share your weird burger experiences.
