Finnish Empire State Burger

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

A friend of mine from Finland is paying me a visit next week and just thinking about his visit brought back memories of one of the most amazing burgers I've ever seen. I was in Finland last summer at a wedding and while in Helsinki we visited a burger restaurant. They had a burger called the Empire State Burger on the menu which was basically 3 burgers on top of each other! It's apparently the largest commercial burger available in Europe. Two guys in our group gave it a go, one Finnish and One Irish. Needless to say we were there a while but Finland most definitely won, with the Fin not only polishing off the burger (or 3) but he then proceeded to finish his fries and drown everything with a pint of coke. The Irish guy struggled for nearly 50 minutes to get the burger down, didn't touch the fries and couldn't speak for 3 hours after eating. Watching him struggle through was one of the highlights of the trip!
