You’ll soon be able to drink Heisenberg-style you’re in London. A pop-up bar called ABQ after Albuquerque, will be offering adult beverages in an RV like the one Walter and Jesse used for their operation in the early days. It’ll cost £30 (about $47), to “cook” up two custom drinks with the bar’s expert mixologists.

Most of them will be blue I’m guessing.

Up to 22 people at a time will be able to customize a drink, but there’s already a long waiting list. There are over 18,000 guests who have already signed up for their chance when the bar is open starting in July through August.

HumanCentipedeBurgerFeature05182015-970x545

The folks at Zombie Burger, a Des Moines, Iowa-based restaurant, are fans of the Human Centipede movies and decided that they would be a great inspiration for food. Naturally.

In honor of the series, the burger joint recently concocted the “Martin’s Revenge” burger–named after the bad guy in the second film, Martin Lomax–and it features a “three-piece slider bun with a different burger in each segment.”

According to dmjuice, Zombie Burger chef Tom McKern notes:

The first burger is steak with cheddar, bacon and red raw onion. The second is a burger patty with American cheese, pulled barbecue bacon and sauteed red onion. The third burger is a loose meat sandwich with house-made cheese whiz and bacon-red onion jam.

“I was trying to figure out a way to do a take on the movie through a burger,” McKern said. “I basically started with whole ingredients, and processed them down from slider to slider.”

The burger goes for $10.79, and frankly, I’m just happy the chef didn’t sew the burgers together…or include human meat.

Because you can never have too much meat on a burger, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are introducing the “Most American Thickburger” on May 20th. This behemoth will feature a beef patty topped with a split hot dog and a layer of Lay’s potato chips.

Forget about the diet because this thing packs 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

You’ll be able to get one for $5.79 on its own or for $8.29 as a combo with fries and a drink, because you know you want fries with that.

Starting this Fall, Indiana Jones fans will have a new place to grab a bite and have a drink at Walt Disney World Resort. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

Jock Lindsay, as you may recall, was Indy’s intrepid pilot. So look for aviation-themed cocktails and food like the “Hovito Mojito”, the “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” and “Rolling Boulder Meatballs”. Aviation decor, vintage travel posters and even a docked steamboat are part of the fun. And look out for nods to Lindsay’s pet snake Reggie.

Based on the concept art, I’d definitely like to swing by some time. Still, it’s not exactly what I would expect for an Indiana Jones-themed restaurant. Seems like they could have gone much bigger with this.

Think people posting photos of their food on Instagram has gone too far? Carmel Winery a and restaurant in Tel Aviv called Catit thinks it hasn’t gone far enough.

Chipotle’s guacamole is, as any diehard fan of the chain can attest to, pretty darn good. Amazingly enough, it’s also pretty darn standard and easy to make. We know this because Chipotle has revealed their recipe so you can make your own at home.

Check out the recipe after the break…

According to Sanrio, this is the world’s first Hello Kitty restaurant. It is set to open this month in Hong Kong and features themed foods, most shaped like Hello Kitty.

I’m not so sure about that Hello Kitty meatloaf-esque dim sum though. That looks a little odd.

They are currently trying to get drink koozies with the company’s logo and it looks like Burger King has taken notice. They’ve reached out via twitter in hopes of contacting Mr. Burger and Miss King.
