Once upon a time, there were two buns. They felt lonely, and life seemed to be quite dry. They decided to meat and got all saucy. And voila! The burger was born. But the story doesn’t end there.
A bunch of crunchy green leaves thronged and pleaded, “Lettuce in too!” Along came tomatoes and onions, pick(l)ed from farms and chopped on boards. Then, the fries asked, “Can we be on board too?” As years went by, the chefs experimented and deleted, and created some of the wackiest combinations to satiate their quest for new dishes. From accidental amalgamations to tested mix-ups finding a place in the gourmet world, eateries and joints came up with their signature versions of patty and bun servings.
Today, there are classic takes with a contemporary hint, and there are some completely nouveau burgers that have made the cut. But what has made them visually stand out, has been their size and height. Minced meat discs and cream-loaded sauces layered together, climbing up to inches- few things in this world can be as satisfying as digging into a scrumptious, gigantic burger. TheVibe presents to you burgers that’d give the ultimate satisfaction to growling stomachs. So drool in, as we get to you the wildest burgers in India!
