The first burger unveiled was the English Breakfast Burger (London, England) – a Certified Angus Beef@ patty topped with sliced ham, a sausage patty, a friend egg, a Portobello mushroom, arugula and garlic aioli and served with a side of baked beans. This burger also had a side of delicious curry fries with a tandoori masala dipping sauce to die for. The cocktail they paired with the English Breakfast Burger was the “Hurricane”– Orange, mango and pineapple juice, infused with BACARDI Superior Rum, BACARDI Select Rum, Amaretto and the finest Call Grenadine.
The next burger bite was the Colombian Plantain Burger (Cartagena, Colombia)– A South American savory and sweet combination of caramelized onions, bacon and Monterey Jack cheese, spiked with molasses and tapped with fried plantains on a certified Angus Beef© patty. Perfectly paired with crispy plantain chips and mojo sauce. This delicious burger was served with herb parmesan fries.

The final burger in the tour was the one near and dear to our hearts, The Gaslamp 150 Burger! This savory creation embraces San Diego’s culture and heritage with 1/2 lb Angus Beef Patty topped with pepper jack & cotija cheeses, enchilada and crema sauces, a fried poblano pepper, crisp lettuce & topped with a serrano pepper.
