Even if you don’t live in Australia, Sydney restaurant, Down N’ Out is still a great follow on Instagram if you want photos of mouth-watering burgers to pop up in your feed every so often. While we’d love to try each and every last one, their latest creation has us looking for cheap flights to Australia: from now until September 3, Down N’ Out will be serving three Pokémon-inspired burgers that look both tasty and faithful to their source material, according to The Daily Dot.
Order a Pokéburger, and you’ll be randomly served either a Pikachu, Bulbasaur, or Charmander burger, whichever possibility you end up with being served in a mystery egg, so it’ll be a surprise until it’s in your hands. The differences between the three are reflections of their characters: the Pikachu burger has French fries inside and accurate ears made from singed tortilla chips, Charmander has spicy orange cheese, and Bulbasaur has greens like lettuce, pickles, and even a piece of broccoli sticking out the back. While we feel bad that Squirtle was sadly excluded from the promotion, we’re going to focus on the positives—namely that these burgers exist and look phenomenal.
The #pokemon masters at @downnout_ have created three #pokeburgers to homage the craze and love for all things #pokemongo – at only $15- you get a mystery burger egg containing either a #pikachu a #charmander or a #bulbasaur burger. These burgs of fun and beauty start hatching tomorrow for a limited time. #mealforameal #fcba #zomato
“The flavours and the ingredients match the Pokémon’s style, character and colour. The Charmander is a little bit spicy, there’s kind of a volcanic cheese dripping off it,” Ben Kagan, from Hashtag Burgers, the group that operates Down N’ Out, told Mashable. “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.”
