Busy watching a program on the Food Network about Burger joints in the USA.
Some really nice looking burgers.
Does anyone know of a place in Cape Town where really big burgers can be bought?

Something like this :

These extra-large portion sizes are taken to the extreme with Saul’s Famous 1.2kg burger. Home of the renowned Beat the Burger challenge Saul puts it to any of his guests to finish the massive 1.2kg burger plus chips in under 15 minutes. If you do manage to Beat the Burger you will join the ranks of mere hundreds who have achieved this before you and have your name immortalised on the Beat the Burger wall as well as receive a T-shirt, certificate and a R50 voucher.

Why don't you just make one yourself? Right now I'm digesting a fairly substantial burger I made for supper.

If anyone is looking for inspiration check out the Burger Land series.

Love that series. Must still check why it stopped so suddenly.

Interesting. I'll attempt that challenge.
I better call Saul.

Not a bad idea.
The wife is contemplating what all to include and how much mince we'll need, etc.
Where would you get the buns though?

15 minutes seems to be a little too short, now to find a place like that in Joeys :)

Check out Burger Fair in Bellville c/o Park&Strand street (voortrekker). Its an old school drive-in joint and apparently has huge burgers.

Size does not equal quality!

Then again if you can chow a 1.2kg burger you are a glutton. I struggle with 2x 200gr home made burgers so 1.2kg would feed four people for me.
