Pokémon burger is making waves in Australia, and it is driving players and fans alike crazy.
Ever since Pokémon Go was launched last month, the smartphone game has launched several Pokémon-themed products. Catching Pokémon characters is not the only thing that makes game enthusiasts running to Sydney right now.
A mouth-watering Pokémon burger is something that many definitely want to get their hands on since these cute game characters are only available in limited quantities each day.
The Pokémon-inspired burgers were created by Down N’ Out, a food chain in Sydney, Australia run by a group called Hashtag Burgers. The Down N’ Out showcases three of the most popular characters in the game – Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander.
However, eating them all in one visit is not possible. According to Mashable, patrons could not choose which Pokémon burger they can order. They will randomly receive their burger and they have to return more than once to complete the collection.
“The flavours and the ingredients match the Pokémon’s style, character and colour. The Pikachu is a bit sillier, with our ‘tiger fries’ through it,” Ben Kagan from Hashtag Burgers said. He also described the other two Pokemon burgers. The Charmander is a little spicy with cheese dripping off it. The Bulbasaur is cleaner and tastes like a McDonald Big Mac.
The burgers also have some garnishes to complete the characters’ look. The Bulbasaur burger has a small piece of broccoli on top, while Pikachu has Dorito ears.
Where to buy Pokémon burger?
The Down N’ Out Burgers is at St John Young Hotel in Sydney’s CBD. Each Pokémon burger costs A$15 (US$11.39). The Pokémon burgers are available until Sept. 3 only.
Meanwhile, a number of places continue to ask Pokémon players to stop catching characters in their area, while some famous places in Sydney are more than eager to be included as Pokéstop. The Sydney Opera House is one of the popular places in the city that supports the game. The house recently hosted a Pokéwalk, which attracted over a thousand Pokémon Go players.
