Goodbye, Earth: A Burger With An Avocado For A Bun Is Apparently A Thing Now

August 4, 2016


This is a small burger with a halved avocado for a bun. It is the brainchild of Amsterdam-based "food stylist and photographer" Colette Dike, and looks like Yoshi could hatch out of it at any moment. Dike recommends eating the burger with a knife and fork though, since it's more of a stacked salad than a traditional burger. Wait -- what's a stacked salad? Is that like a salad tower? Should I be embarrassed I don't know? Sounds pretty froufrou to me. I've never paid more than $5.95 for a salad in my life, and that's dinner menu pricing. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer my salads how I prefer my butt-- "Tossed?" What? No, I was going to say full of English cucumbers.

Thanks to Alexander, who agrees buns were made to be squished so you can fit as much in your mouth at once and eat like a wild animal with hands.

    That burger would shoot out of that avocado bun like a greased pig. Also, if you were going to do this in real life, you would cut the avocado lengthwise, not like this.

    I can't say I've ever witnesses a greased pig shooting out of an avacado bun. But it sounds damnably entertaining.

    Interesting. It would have probably slightly more calories than a standard bun, but would be MUCH healthier. Bread is the bane of good nutrition and weight maintenance/loss, unfortunately.

    I'd eat the shit out of that.

    gross...and hahahahahah I need to compliment the dish at a fine restaurant with this exact phrase now.

    Avocado is so delicious! It's good on burgers too, but this would be so hard to eat. I have an idea of using those large portabella mushrooms as buns, but I haven't tried it yet.
