Still desperate to get the taste of that awful Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer out of your mouth? Well, I might just have the answer for you. That is, if you happen to live in Melbourne and have a soft spot for funky, themed burgers.
The chefs over at BosozokuHQ in South Yarra already have a bit of a penchant for gaming/pop culture-themed food and drink, especially when it comes to their specialty cocktails, but they’ve taken it to the next level with the ‘Sonic the Egg Hogg’ burger. Created as an entry into Chapel St’s ‘Chapel Champion Awards’, the burger actually doesn’t go crazy with wild ingredients (save for a striking, blue bun) and instead looks like something I’d eat on the regular. In fact, I can’t describe it in full without salivating so I’ll let the press release do the talking:
“Sonic – The Egg Hogg”:
The burger that will challenge you on a new multi-level journey of deliciousness. Player One: His mission begins with a radical, highly classified, Blue Brioche bun recipe that is ready to skilfully run, jump, and overcome all obstacles to get into your mouth.
Collect all the extra life points to be gained from the sesame sprinkled exterior and the secret ingredients! At every stage, his burning desire is to reach this yummy, yet complicated treasure, to unlock the “Next Level” quarter pounder of freshly ground, seasoned and seared Wagyu beef, with special bonus rounds of Canadian maple streaky bacon and melted cheese thrown in during this ambitious conquest.
On this journey to the ultimate holy grail, a !!!triple!!! scoring 62 degree egg yolk, he must carefully manoeuvre through a flurry of beetroot mustard and relish, armed with as many golden onion rings as he can grab from his path – for super extra mega-points!!
Players take your controllers and begin the path to glory. Game on.敬具
Chapel Champions runs until June 10, so there’s plenty of time still to get your blue burger fix and nominate/vote for BosozokuHQ in the competition! Funnily enough, I ate there just the other night, but it looks like I’ll have to go back and try this thing!
