Winning burger featuring charred pineapple, volcanic fire roasted red peppers and SPAM on Zinburger’s menu from September 15-21
Livingston, NJ (RestaurantNews.com) After hundreds of submissions and weeks of online voting, burger fans will now be saying ‘Aloha’ to the Honolulu Baby Burger at Zinburger.
The Honolulu Baby Burger priced at $12, will be featured at all nine east coast Zinburger locations from September 15-21.
The Honolulu Baby Burger consists of a Certified Angus Beef patty with charred pineapple, volcanic fire roasted red peppers, swiss cheese, mayo and a Hawaiian favorite – SPAM – all between two oven roasted bronzed buns.
According to Sandy Dostal Thornton, the creator of the winning burger, a Hawaiian-style burger was just the perfect choice.
“”Hawaii is our favorite place in the world to visit,” said Thornton. “Also, my dad used to sing the song ‘Honolulu Baby’ to me when I was a little girl so it just seemed appropriate to come up with something that represents Hawaii. Nothing says Hawaii better than pineapple and SPAM, which is truly a staple on the menu there.”
Thornton, who recently moved with her husband to the Buckhead area of Atlanta right around the same time Zinburger opened in Lenox Square earlier this summer, comes from the hospitality industry and has an affinity for great food and beverages.
“After eating at Zinburger for the first time, the food quality and the variety of the burgers was truly amazing. So I knew my burger creation had to be novel, delicious with a little bit of whimsy.”
Besides having her winning burger featured on the Zinburger menu for one week, Thornton received a $100 gift card for placing in first place.
