There’s nothing like putting [sandwich protein] between two slices of [something delicious/fried that is definitely not a traditional bread bun] to get the Internet worked up and drooling in envy. Joining the ranks of viral food creations is this burger with deep-fried macaroni and cheese as buns from a Chicago eatery.
The Rockit Burger Bar in Chicago is only serving this Frankenfood creation — topped with scallions, lettuce, tomato and Sriracha ketchup — until Sunday, notes HuffPo. So counting the rest of today, that means diners have four days to get their hands on that thing. Which can’t be easy, as the bun is fried food and it probably gets your hands greasy — you know where we’re going here.
Limited-offerings are a great way to ensure that the restaurant doesn’t have to fear turning into an assembly line dedicated to one trendy product [cough, cronuts, cough cough who cares], for sure. That being said, anyone handy with deep fryer could definitely create a reasonable facsimile of this on their own time, long after the clamoring masses have gone home.
Or we can all just go on the Internet to ogle comfort food and see what comes up next, without ever tasting most of these creations because geography is in the way. Sigh. It’s a vicious, hungry cycle.
