Aussie Restaurant Designs Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur-themed Poké-Burgers
posted on by Amanda Whalen
The Sydney burger joint Down N' Out is offering new themed burgers featuring the classic Pokémon Pikachu, Charmander, and Bulbasaur.
The burgers were designed by Down N' Out's creative director, Ben Kagan, and each comes with a trading card listing its ingredients. Prospective trainers are not given the choice of which burger they want, but are given one randomly.
Kagan said, "The flavors and the ingredients match the Pokémon's style, character and color. The Charmander is a little bit spicy, there's kind of a volcanic cheese dripping off it...The Bulbasaur is grassy and cleaner, but it tastes like a Big Mac actually – which is quite nice. The Pikachu is a bit sillier, with our 'tiger fries' through it."
Apparently, a Squirtle burger was attempted but ultimately scrapped when it became too difficult to create a blue bun.
The burgers are AU$15 ( about US$12) and will be available until September 3.
