HARD ROCK CAFÉ LAUNCHES EIGHT NEW BURGERS in WORLD TOUR
HOLLYWOOD(Perfect Meal Today)6/14/16/–The art of the burger continues to evolve, and the innovative Hard Rock Group launched eight new burgers at their Hollywood Boulevard flagship location recently. We were there to taste quite a few of them, and thankfully, they all kept coming out slider style. Hard Rock gave their chefs freedom to create a unique local burger which in a way emphasized their city, and in this latest World Burger Tour, Athens, London, Mumbai, Seattle, Montego Bay, Buenos Aires, Las Vegas and Honolulu were proudly represented.
These were the eight that made the cut from a total of 160 burgers that were entered.
For the ultimate burger fan you can book a world tour for two people that includes stops In Athens, Buenos Aires and Seattle and of course London to experience behind the scenes tours and much more for a base cost of $24,999. Of course the HARD ROCK concept started in London on Park Lane in Mayfair, and on this ten day tour fans will get a private tour of the vault which houses some of the most valuable items including the first piece acquired which was a signed Eric Clapton guitar.
So let’s start out with the English Breakfast Burger, a monster meal in itself consisting of an Angus Beef patty topped w/sliced ham, a sausage patty, a fried egg, Portobello mushroom, aragula and garlic aioli and served with an English staple, baked beans. I really liked the Tandoori Chicken burger from Mumbai, simple inn execution with a dark meat chicken patty seasoned with Indian spices and herbs an topped w/mint mayonnaise and served with a side of cucumber.
The Greek Burger from Athens prominently featured aragula and feta cheese and tomato Which somewhat overwhelmed the Angus beef patty, but the Aloha Burger was a beef Patty topped with SPAM, Monterey Jack cheese, a grilled pineapple ring with soy Glaze, guacamole and pico de gallo. A little but too much activity for me with this burger however.
The Java Lava Burger from Seattle was another winner with the select crowd, and this was a burger patty grilled and accompanied by a house made espresso rub and topped with lava sauce, crunchy java onions, bacon. Melted cheddar Cheese, and all this was topped off with a fried jalapeno.
Las Vegas of course came up with the heavily spiced Atomic Burger, a patty topped with Atomic beer- Battered peppers, pepper jack cheese, battered peppers, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, garlic chipotle ketchup and chipotle mayo.
