The sizzling hot Wagyu beef and glazed doughnut burger — complete with Nutella-flavoured bacon — might seem an odd combination, but Surry Hills-based Ze Pickle cafe owner Adam Cheers reckons it hits the sweet spot. “We have so many repeat customers coming in for it,” Mr Cheers said.
“People love it. One person told me it changed their life, and another group of 12 came in the other day just for the doughnut hamburgers.”
However, Mr Cheers admits the calorie-laden burger might not be the most healthy of options.
“A lot of people come after their workout for it, because it’s a good cheat meal,” he said. “It’s not something that you could live off or have every day but it does fit the bill for a great treat.”
Dietitians Association of Australia spokeswoman Lauren McGutten estimates it would contain at least 1000 or so calories — almost half of your recommended daily intake “or breakfast, lunch and then some”.
“It’s a once in a blue moon treat, not a weekly treat,” she said.
