B-Boy Limping

So I tried the NY Pizza Burger

The novelty

“”Four WHOPPER® patties, slices of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese with marinara and Tuscan sauce on a sesame seed bun”

that’s sold exclusively at the Burger King Whopper Bar in Times Square.

(also, oh yeah, there’s a BK Whopper Bar in Times Square. Open 24 hours. Soon to be serving beer.)

And yes, it was absurd.

The absurd thing is not that this thing exists. Because as far as pizza-flavored food items go, the taste is exactly as you would expect it to be.  And if you split it with folks, the 2,500 calorie count isn’t that ridiculous.

It’s is not even that it looks like a bloated flower. Like a pizza representation of Narcissus, or a Muppet prop. That’s actually endearing.

No, it’s that I ate it Friday after a night of Fashion’s Night Out indulgence which included the chef David Chang/ Vogue food critic Jeffrey Steingarten-hosted event at Andaz  5th. (Which it seemed like every food writer in NY showed up to. They love free Momofuku.)

But guys, I had to do it. It’s not that often that I find myself in Times Square with a bunch of folks willing to split a Pizza Burger, at the only place in the world that you can currently get it.

A PIZZA. BURGGERRRRR. [This is America.]

It was totally worth it.

But um, nobody tell David Chang.
