You may not look pretty eating a gourmet burger, but who cares!

We can't think of anything better than pigging out on a mammoth sized gourmet  burger. One that you can barely fit in your mouth or one that you have to disassemble just to take it down.  Thinking of a  big slab of minced beef grilled to perfection, layered with cheese, toppings and then loving wrapped in a sweet, airy  bun makes us sing for joy.

It's one of the ultimate comfort foods. It's familiar and if you ask any one of your mates to join you for a burger not many will refuse that offer. When we mention burgers in the office conversations can last for ages about favourite Halal gourmet burger joints, some of us prefer beef patties, some chicken (others veg :P). One thing we do know is that once you've tried a gourmet burger there's simply no going back to the boring takeaway burgers .

Gourmet burgers are changing up the restaurant scene

Halal burger joints are changing up the game and catching up to their non-Halal contemporaries. We've all heard of the burger chains like GBK (panko crumbed chicken is Halal), Handmade Burger Co (Halal chicken is served and cooked on a separate grill),  Byron Burgers and Honest Burgers to name a few, who've paved the way and made gourmet burgers trendy in the UK. Some of these burger chains have even introduced Halal meats because they want to tap into the Muslim market. We love to eat people what can we say!

It's all about the ingredients

'Foodpreneurs' are recognising people's tastes are changing and millennial Muslims are demanding better burgers, which use locally and ethically sourced ingredients. So these creative chefs are experimenting with more top quality ingredients from the meats they use and where they source it from, to the toppings and even the bun. No way could you have dreamt of eating  a 32 day, dry aged Wagyu beef burger 10 years ago, but now burgers like this are the norm.

Burgers are for everyone

You can't go wrong with a burger because there's literally something for everyone. For people who are more reserved in what they order and like to stick to what they know, can have burgers with cheese, tomatoes and lettuce. But for the super adventurous there's topping combinations that will make your taste-buds tickle with joy!
