6 Gourmet Burgers We'd Kill For Right Now

No we are not talking about two burger buns stuffed with a wholesome chicken or beef patty with a scrap of lettuce and a sliver of gherkins with some cheese slapped on to it. We mean gourmet burgers with everything from decadent fondue and fresh guacamole to a seafood patty, peanut butter and hickory-smoked barbecues versions. The humble fast food gets a really, really posh update in our list of gourmet burgers.

Cajun Grouper Burger

You have heard of humongous beef patties or pulled pork being stuffed into burger buns, but the Cajun Grouper Burger at The Black Rabbit uses seafood and that too crispy-fried grouper. The fish is then stacked with gherkins, jalapeños and arugula for an added crunch. Add-ons include mushrooms, Blue Cheese dip, American Cheddar, and Hickory-smoked bacon {at an extra cost}.

Beer & Cheese Burger

Fondue in a burger. Yes that’s true. This version at Smoke House Deli adds beer in a fondue-like cheesy sauce, which is slathered on a char-grilled tenderloin patty. Now add a generous amount of Cheddar Cheese and some crunchy onion rings. And you are done.

Nothing But Hound Dog Burger

Named after an Elvis Presley song, this burger at Social has two ingredients that were an absolute favourite with the late singer: peanut butter and bacon.

Guacamole Burger

At Tex-Mex eatery chain Chili’s, buffalo meat patty is seared first, after which it is slathered with fresh guacamole. Then comes piled, melted Monterey Jack cheese, fire-roasted jalapeños, sautéed red and green bell peppers, some extra cheese, caramelised onions and a cumin-lime flavoured sour cream. Now that’s what we would call a stack.
