Check out these buns: A glorious burger gallery

It’s no secret that we love burgers. And who can blame us? We’ve even dedicated an article to discussing why they have such a magical hold over us. To that end, we’ve done the hard research to bring you a few of the most magnificent buns that South Africa has to offer.

Tear your eyes away from the chicken ’n waffles. Look at the burger. Look at it. It’s simple. It’s classic. And we see the gherkins peeking their little heads around the bun. We see them.

Sorry what was that? We couldn’t hear you over the sound of the mac ’n cheese ’n bacon.

Funny Bunny @funnybunnydbn

Is that a milk-stout-boerenkaas fondue topping on your burger, or are you just happy to see us?
