You know how you can go to the drive through at the bank and send your deposits through a fast-moving pneumatic tube system? At Christchurch’s C1 Cafe, you’ll be able to use that procedure to receive burgers and fries. They have at least one working tube, but they’re planning to install additional tubes to serve additional tables.
The burgers go through the system at approximately 87 miles per hour, but don’t worry – they’ve built in air brakes and air pressure pockets to make sure the canister slows as it approaches your table. The craziest part is that they’ve been testing the system and the contents remain intact and upright. Science is neat.
See the system in action on The Press.

Slater’s 50/50 seems to be on a mission to get everyone on the planet to crave their food. I mean, they make their burgers with 50% beef and 50% bacon (hence the name) and everyone loves bacon.
Now they’re making a Sriracha Burger or, as they call it, “the ultimate tribute to the most amazing condiment known to mankind.”
And boy, is it Sriracha-y.
It’s made with a Sriracha infused 50/50 patty, Sriracha glazed bacon, Sriracha coleslaw, Sriracha sautéed mushrooms, Sriracha mayo, and pepperjack cheese which is then drizzled with Sriracha and served on a Brioche bun.
Want one? Well, the Sriracha Burger debuts Monday, December 9th at all locations for $10.95.
Nick over at Dude Foods isn’t a believer in “understated” cooking. Case in point, the man likes his bacon a lot (obviously) so he went ahead and made a burger featuring two hearty, bacon-weaved buns.
Here’s what went into the Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger:
So, I opened up a couple packages of bacon, created a couple square bacon weaves and then put them in my oven at 400° for about 20 minutes. Once my two bacon weaves were done I placed an upside down bowl over each one and traced around it with a knife, thus creating the two circular bacon weaves that I needed for my “bun.” After that was done, I grilled up a 1/3 pound ground beef burger, melted a slice of cheese on top of it, added a sunny side up egg to the equation and I had myself a nice little Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger!
Now is that pure culinary genius or anarchic cooking at its finest? I leave that up to you to decide. I have to go now. I think my cholesterol just shot up a hundred points after looking at that bacon burger pic for more than a minute.
The Hunger Games is about revolution, and youth taking bold measures to ensure their freedom and survival… but do you know what else is bold and revolutionary? Spicy sandwiches from Subway!
I really wish I was kidding, but somewhat at Subway had the balls to think that a story about slaughter and rebellion fits hand-in-hand with freakin’ sandwiches and shameless corporate promotion. It’s like I don’t know you anymore, Subway…

Word of warning: Once you start clicking, you won’t be able to stop. The Unlimited Burger Generator does exactly what its name implies. It creates a massive, mesmerizing stream of burgers of all sizes and types.
Guthrie Lonergan created the generator. Her other, equally mesmerizing work has been previously featured in the New Museum of New York’s Montage: Unmonumental Online exhibition.
Once again, you have been warned.

Think the Ramen burger is cool? Check out the Mac Attack Burger.
This mac and cheesy creation is the brainchild of Rockit Burger Bar in Chicago.
It tucks a gourmet beef patty, garnished with lettuce, tomato, green onion and Sriracha ketchup between two fried macaroni and cheese buns.
You wanna try it? Well, it was only at Rockit’s for a limited time earlier this month, but Mashable has the recipe so you can chow down on all of its’ delicious, artery clogging, cheesy goodness at home.
If you’re a ninja in search of a snack that will go perfectly with your super sneaky outfit, then you’ll love Burger King’s new burger: The Black Ninja.
Japanese Burger King chains will be offering these burgers starting on October 25 for 680 yen ($6.75). The burger features a Whopper patty, hashed browns, and a hefty slab of bacon. The buns appear to be the same style that were used on last year’s Darth Vader burgers sold by French food chain Quick in Europe.
Nick over at Dude Foods already cooked up a grilled cheese sandwich made completely from cheese, and now he’s done it again and created a whole new breed of melty sangie: the inside out grilled cheese.
He used Carr Valley’s Bread Cheese for the “bread,” fried those up, and tossed one slice of normal bread between them.
Genius, I say! Genius!
