World Burger Tour, here we come!

This past week, the folks from Hard Rock Cafe contacted me, wondering if I'd be at all interested in checking out their World Burger Tour, a month-long celebration of burgers inspired by the flavors of the world.

Um... YES. Of COURSE I would. Don't you even know who you're talking to? CLEARLY, I'm interested... So as expected, I responded with a resounding, "I would be happy to," and so today, before heading out on an epic burger-filled fun-fest, I thought I'd stop on over here and give a brief breakdown of the World Burger Tour over at Hard Rock Cafe in case you wanted to join in on the fun!

The details: Hard Rock World Burger Tour

  • Hard Rock Cafe locations in North America are celebrating the start of burger season with a menu showcasing international Local Legendary™ Burgers
  • The limited-time World Burger Tour menu is available Sunday, May 1 through Thursday, June 30, 2016
  • This year, Hard Rock is also offering a literal World Burger Tour, a travel package that takes the most adventurous burger enthusiasts on the road (and the skies) to sample offerings from the World Burger Tour menu at Hard Rock Cafe locations in London, Athens, Buenos Aires and Seattle!

Basically, Hard Rock is giving chefs at their cafes the freedom to create a unique Local Legendary Burger that captures the flavors of their city. This year more than 160 local burgers were evaluated by Hard Rock's culinary team with fan favorites selected to headline the World Burger Tour menu. Throughout May and June, Hard Rock Cafe menus* will feature the following World Burger Tour offerings including, but not limited to:

  • English Breakfast Burger (London, England) - a Certified Angus Beef® patty topped with sliced ham, a sausage patty, a fried egg, a portobello mushroom, arugula and garlic aioli and served with a side of baked beans
