The battle of the bulge is coming to an end, as cooler weather means cozy sweaters and winter parkas are soon to take the place of bikinis and skimpy sundresses.
That means you can finally go wild with the summer's most outrageous burgers, like the Surfin' California Burger from Almost Famous in Manchester, U.K.
This carnivorous ode to California is layered with multiple beef patties covered in melty cheese, a generous schmear of guac and an entire crispy fish taco on top — just in case you were still hungry. Definitely not the sort of meal you'd want to eat before catching some waves, brah.
While you were busy shaping up for summer, the ramen burger craze came and went, but now's your chance to give it a shot! This savory beef patty encased by golden, griddled ramen buns is sure to inspire a most relaxing summer nap. The time for carbo-loading is now, my friend.
Get your burger to do double duty by combining it with another summer fave: seafood. Neptune's Oyster in Boston serves up a juicy burger topped with crispy fried oysters and slathered with creamy garlic mayo. If it's good enough for the god of the sea, then it's good enough for your backyard barbecue, right?
Craving an even more decadent burger-seafood mashup? Try topping a buttered and grilled bun with crisp lettuce, creamy mayo and an entire lobster claw. This five-star burger looks so tasty you'll have to pinch yourself — or let the lobster do it — to make sure you're not dreaming.
If you're craving a food coma and an excuse to lounge in the hammock for the rest of the day, then this burger is for you. Packing a punch of meaty goodness, this hamburger is capped by two mac 'n' cheese buns that are fried till crisp on the outside but still gooey in the middle. Take off your shoes, and stay awhile, because after you eat this burger, you probably won't feel like moving for the rest of the day — or until next spring.
