The Most Unusual Burgers For National Burger Day

The 25th of August is National Burger Day here in Blightly. To celebrate our love for the burger in all its forms, we’ve found five of the funkiest in London.

Challo paneer gourmet sushi burger

Created by the boys at Sticky Bundits, this tofu burger does away with the meat, cheese, and even the bun. Instead, slab of paneer cheese is slathered in spicy chilli sauce, cabbage, and cooling raita, before being sandwiched between two discs of peshwari rice. It’s a burger, in the loosest sense of the word.

Ramen katsu burger

Sticking with the Asian theme, say ‘Kon’nichiwa’ to the raman katsu burger. You can find it at Wawa in London Bridge. Angus beef is coated with crispy breadcrumbs and served with wasabi and mayo.

Avocado bun burger

2015’s break out ingredient proves it’s not just for smashing on toast. The avocado bun burger calls Joe’s Southern Table and Bar in Covent Garden home. In the ‘bun’ is a beef patty, sauce, tomato and lettuce. There’s also the option of adding cheese. Of course the drawback is you can’t really pick it up with your hands like a normal burger.

Tempura Soft shell crab charcoal bun burger

Black never goes out of fashion, and at Bull In a China Shop the buns are made with bamboo charcoal (don’t worry, it doesn’t taste of ash). Inside is a tempura-battered soft-shell crab.

Finally, there’s the original waffle burger at Bird, which see a tender chicken thigh, rasher of bacon, and slice of cheese all served between two golden waffles.
