My first memory of eating at a Hard Rock Cafe, I was probably in middle school and I was with my family in Orlando. Years later while in college, I ate at several while wandering through different countries. I still have the t-shirts from Berlin and Paris. Fast forward to just a couple of days ago, the four of us enjoyed a meal at the Hard Rock Cafe here in Minnesota. If you haven’t been to our local Hard Rock Cafe, it’s tucked into Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America.
We decided to celebrate my husband’s birthday at the Hard Rock Cafe. He was excited after learning about their special World Burger Tour menu. There are lots of worldly options to choose from:
English Breakfast Burger (London, England) – a Certified Angus Beef® patty topped with sliced ham, a sausage patty, a fried egg, a portobello mushroom, arugula and garlic aioli and served with a side of baked beans
Java Lava Burger (Seattle, United States) – a Certified Angus Beef patty grilled and dressed in a house-made espresso rub and topped with lava sauce, crunchy java onions, bacon, melted Cheddar cheese and garnished with a fried jalapeño
Tandoori Chicken Burger (Mumbai, India) – a dark meat chicken patty seasoned with aromatic spices and fresh herbs, topped with mint mayonnaise and served with a side of cucumber
Jamaican Jerk Burger (Montego Bay, Jamaica) – a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with banana pepper rings, mango jalapeño cream cheese and jerk mayonnaise
ATOMIC! Burger (Las Vegas, United States) – a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with Atomic beer-battered peppers, pepper jack cheese, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, garlic chipotle ketchup and chipotle mayonnaise
Tango Salsa Burger (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with andouille sausage, Monterey Jack cheese, chips de batata, a fried egg, salsa criolla and garlic aioli
Greek Burger (Athens, Greece) – a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with arugula, feta cheese and a tomato slice
Aloha Burger (Honolulu, United States) – a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with SPAM, Monterey Jack cheese, a grilled pineapple ring with sweet soy glaze, guacamole and pico de gallo
*World Burger Tour menus may vary by location; guests should consult their local cafe for a full list of featured burgers.
To experience the World Burger Tour my husband ordered the Jamaican Jerk Burger, and was pleasantly surprised to find he liked it. He likes beef burgers, but wanted to branch out and try the chicken. He really enjoyed the combination of flavors:
JAMAICAN JERK BURGERMONTEGO BAY, JAMAICAA smooth and spicy fusion of mango and jalapeño cream cheese and jerk mayo, banana peppers and iceberg lettuce, chillin’ on an all-beef patty between a buttered, toasted bun. Served with crispy french fries and jerk mayo dipping sauce.
It was fun to see all the music memorabilia as well as the artwork on all the walls. Our girls recognized some of the artists that had guitars, or clothing framed up on the walls.
One special area that caught all of our attention, the Prince window. It had three of his outfits, as well as a photograph of him.
