Wanaka gave us the option of sinking our teeth into an ‘Obama Burger’… “What IS this burger you speak of?” I hear you ask. Well, unbeknown to me Obama is in fact from Hawaii. And so, bob’s your uncle, slap in a bit of pineapple and we’ve got a burger fit for a king ( or president ). Apparently.
After cynically laughing at the name I sank my teeth into the president’s doughy meaty cheeks, and to my surprise… If it wasn’t one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. A bit of a turn up for the books that one. I can fully recommend you get yerself a Medium Rare Barak Burger should you ever find yourself gracing the shores of Wanaka lake. Your belly will thank you.
Yep Uncle Mike sure packs some serious flavour into his burgers, this was definitely the tastiest burger we’ve had in New Zealand. He even sold beer in pints, not these 440ml NZ pints, but proper 568ml UK pints :) I recommend the local Brewski, yum.
