Burger King Catches Crab Cakes With New South Korean Burgers

Burger King is shining the spotlight on a popular seafood item over in South Korea. The fast food burger chain added two new menu items that incorporate crab cakes into their latest sandwiches.

We’re all for any place you can get fast food crab cakes on demand.

Brand Eating reports that Burger King locations in South Korea are serving a new burger called the Tong Shrimp Crab Burger. The new item boasts a fried crab cake patty that’s topped with garlic shrimp, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and an Old Bay-flavored tartar sauce.

Accompanying this new item is the Red Crab Whopper, which boasts the same exact ingredients as a Whopper with the addition of a fried crab cake and the Old Bay tartar sauce.

The two items are only available for a limited time at participating Burger King locations in South Korea. Don’t expect to see them past the summer.

Pizza Hut Korea Created a Surf ‘N Turf Pizza with a Dessert Stuffed Crust


No one ever agrees on what toppings to put on a pizza, that’s for sure. Pizza Hut Korea doesn’t have time for this kind of indecisiveness, however, so they’re throwing om everything and then some with their new Star Edge Pizza.

The Star Edge Pizza (whose name likely comes from its star-shaped crust) is topped with calamari, shrimp, broccoli, peppers, bacon, sausage and steak. The crust is stuffed with cream cheese in the form of little turnovers. Each piece is filled with a different fruit: cinnamon apple nut or cranberry. While this doesn’t sound like the best combination of ingredients, we have to hand it to them for creativity.

Though it’s a tad on the pricey side, what would you expect from a pie that serves an entire three-course meal in one slice? A medium Star Edge Pizza is available for 28, 900 won ($27.09 US) and a large for 34,900 won ($32.71). The Star Edge is available at all participating Pizza Hut Korea locations.

Would You Shell Out $1,700 for This Glamburger Covered in Edible Gold?


Here at Foodbeast, we’ve seen our fair share of crazy ass burgers along with a plethora of expensive as fuh luxury dishes, but today, those lines are forever blurred thanks to this Glamburger.

Located at Honky Tonk, a London based American diner, this burger has indeed been authenticated by Record Setter as a world record burger. Crafted by Chef Chris Lange, the Glamburger touts a Kobe Wagyu Beef and venison patty that houses black truffle brie in its meaty inner sanctum. The burger then gets the surf and turf treatment with the addition of Iranian saffron poached lobster and bacon covered in maple syrup to the point where it’s nearly candied.

Still not decadent enough for you fancy pants? Well the Glamburger comes topped with a smoked duck egg covered in edible gold, Beluga caviar, matcha mayonnaise, nestled between a bun swimming in gold leaves. To take this thing just over the edge of insanity to the brink of WTF, Chef Large adds shaved white truffle and tops it with a mango champagne jus. Can you say luxurious?

The Glamburger was created in partnership with Groupon to celebrate the site’s five millionth voucher milestone. Not to worry if you don’t have a cool two grand to drop on this swanky burger, Groupon is given one lucky winner the chance to experience the Glamburger absolutely free.

Del Taco Launches New Surf & Turf Burrito for a Limited Time


Del Taco’s recent line of Epic Burritos, which launched in November, are a hungry stoner’s wet dream. Thirteen to 18.5 ounces of wet, steamy meat set on a bed of rice and wrapped in a warm flour tortilla, these guns came in three varieties: the Epic Fajita, the Epic Steak & Potato, and the Epic Chicken Chipotle Ranch. Now for a limited time, DT fans can get yet another diner-inspired fix with the latest addition to the line, the new Epic Surf & Turf.

Available a la carte for $5.29 or in a combo for $6.79, the Surf & Turf combines crispy fried shrimp, fresh grilled carne asada, lime rice, cabbage, creamy ancho pepper sauce, pico de gallo, and Del Taco secret sauce. Pretty brilliant, if you think about it, considering it’s stuff Del Taco already has on the line thanks to the Lenten return of their crispy shrimp tacos.

Pick some up on your next drunchie run, but don’t forget to #GoBold.

Spicy Surf and Turf Burger

Most traditional surf and turf burgers keep it relatively simple, considering the genre-fusion of proteins going on. While normal concoctions would consist of a succulent piece of beef topped with an even prettier piece of lobster tail, our bearded friend decided his version was going to be a bit different. In this particular variation, the beef patty was topped with a freshly made lobster salad, using mayo, banana peppers and Sriracha for the dressing. Are you in? Or are you in?



Lobster Surf and Turf Burger

A special, rather uppity burger version of the “Surf and Turf” idea. We’re looking at a Black Angus burger topped with a grilled half lobster on a bed of grilled asparagus. Juicy lobster meat on top of juicy beef, sounds like a match made in heaven. This sucker comes straight from our friend Nick‘s dinner at the Burger Bar in Las Vegas‘ Mandalay Bay hotel.
