BK Whopper Bar
Holy moley meee-oh-my!! These upscale, eat-in, "modernized Whopper-centric restaurants" are popping up all over the place. Orlando, South Beach, Memphis, Spain, Venezuela, Singapore, New York City... And each features "create-your-own Whoppers with over 20 topping choices" available 24/7. This isn't the first we've heard of the BK's latest venture (remember a few months ago we reported about them serving beer?) but having never visited one, this is the first we've heard of specific menu options. SeriousEats reports:
The New York Pizza Burger ($12.99), a 9-and-a-half-inch wide burger made with four Whopper patties topped with pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce, and Tuscan pesto sauce. It'll be available exclusively at the New York City Whopper Bar starting in September to fulfill that longtime desire for a giant burger that sort of tastes like a pizza.
Meat Beast Whopper ($5.54) topped with bacon, pepperoni, mayo, lettuce, tomato, onions, American cheese, and ketchup.
7-ounce BK Black and Bleu Steakhouse XT ($6.30) topped with blue cheese and blackened Cajun sauce.
California Whopper ($5.54) topped with guacamole, crispy bacon, and Swiss cheese.
