We are quite spoiled here at Verge but are sometimes forced to make impossible decisions; like which burger is better, The Hard Rock Cafe’s Original Legendary Burger or a burger literally covered in gold? Hard Rock Cafe have launched a brand new burger that blew all of our expectations through the roof – not only does it have the same original great taste but it’s also drenched in 24-karat gold, perfect for those who are down to earth but love a bit of shimmer in their lives. We had the chance to put these two brilliant burgers to the ultimate taste test, but which one did we prefer?
The 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ – The shining star of the lineup is this first-of-its-kind burger with bling. A 227g fresh Steak Burger topped with 24-Karat edible gold leaf with cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion. It’s glitz, glamour and pure gold – a legendary bite only available at Hard Rock! Through the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, a portion of all proceeds from the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ will benefit Action Against Hunger to assist in the fight against world hunger. Hard Rock’s ongoing philanthropic efforts support the brand’s “Love All – Serve All,” “Take Time to Be Kind,” and “Save the Planet” mottos, while honoring its commitment to giving back to the community and making the world a better place to be.
The Original Legendary® Burger – The burger that started it all! This fan-favorite is a 227g fresh Steak Burger with smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, crispy onion ring, leaf lettuce and vine-ripened tomato, served with Hard Rock’s signature steak sauce on the side.
After we finished stuffing our faces and felt like pure royalty with gold dripping from our mouths, we had to side with the 24-karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger. Not only did we feel like Beyonce with every bite (as we imagine that she only eats food dipped in gold because… she’s Queen B) but the flavour kept up with the hype and did not disappoint. If you’re out for a special occasion or just looking to start the night with a bang we suggest you go to town in style, 24-Karat style.
