While Australians are busy experimenting with lettuce for buns at McDonald’s, their former colonial overlords are pushing burger architecture in the complete opposite direction.
For those who aren’t familiar, a Scotch egg is a glorious British invention featuring a hard-boiled egg encased in sausage meat, then breaded and deep fried. At Yeah Burger, Scotch eggs replace buns in creations like the Dragon (above): a lamb patty, caramelized leeks, and clamato beurre blanc, all wedged into a haggis-and-kedgeree Scotch egg.
Other versions include the Marco Polo, which has an aged-beef patty, lemon aioli, and manchego stuffed inside a chorizo Scotch egg:
And for vegetarians, there’s the Glaswegian, which includes buttermilk-fried tofu and a mushroom-and-quinoa Scotch egg.
Yeah Burger has two London locations and will be selling these monstrosities until August 22. Godspeed.
