London Shop’s Overloaded ‘Pig Salad Burger’ Looks Terrifyingly Awesome

Sadly, it's still B.Y.O. pork rinds.

Hamburgers are big business in the U.K. right now, so it makes sense to see some fringe-burgers — those all-in, extreme-ingredient excursions like beef topped with fried beer with crushed pretzel breading — making appearances on menus. The "American-style" outfit Psychic Burger, which just set up residency at the Old Queen’s Head in Central London, is about to start serving this gargantuan thing it calls the Pig Salad Burger: That's a hamburger made from black pudding, chorizo, and ground pork, but also some pork belly confited with sage, bacon rashers, butter lettuce, chorizo-fat-addled mayo, apple jelly, and Cheddar. It's also got brawn crubeen, a kind of dense meat jelly made from slow-cooked trotters, and is served impaled on a crispy pig's ear spiral, which helps hold everything in place on the brioche bun. Only 15 will be available per day when the burger goes on sale Wednesday at a cost of £12, or approximately $20, for two weeks only, possibly because the absolute fusion of pork contained therein threatens the space-time continuum, or something.
