Posted June 04, 2019 12:29:40The beach at Rauch Bay in the New South Wales North Island is home to some of the strangest burgers around.
Woolwich beach is home of one of the world’s strangest burger creations, a burger made with a burnt onion, tomato, and garlic sauce, as well as a twist on the traditional bun.
The burger is called the “tanglewood burger” and is named after the area’s famous tanglewood tree, which has been found to contain the same fungus as a strain of E. coli, the bacteria that causes the common cold.
According to ABC TV presenter Mark Waugh, this is the second time the burger has made the Guinness Book of World Records.
While the original burger is still popular with locals, the twist has attracted more attention.
On Saturday, a group of local youths set up a Facebook page to celebrate the burger, writing: “It was a fantastic burger!”
The Facebook page also boasted of the “best burgers of the day”, including the “flamboyant” “smash of cheese” burger.
But it was the locals who took the most unusual approach, with one commenting: “I think it’s amazing how good it is.
I think it looks like a really old school burger.”
In a Facebook post on Sunday, the group wrote: “This was our first ever burger, but it was really delicious!”
But the novelty didn’t stop there.
“The locals who came along with us, also loved the burger,” one Facebook user wrote.
“I mean, they were actually helping out.
It’s very much an area that people have been visiting.”
The locals also helped with the preparations and took photos of the burger.
A Facebook post by one of them said the burger had been cooked in a “very, very small” kitchen, and that “the heat of the BBQ was a very good idea”.
The post has since been shared more than 11,000 times, and the photos have gone viral.
There have also been reports of people using the Facebook page as a place to buy cheap burgers, and there have been reports that the local authorities have been contacted by concerned residents.
In response to the backlash, the New Zealand Tourism Board said it was “not responsible” for the burger’s popularity and that the “Burger King has a strict zero tolerance policy towards the sale of cheap, disposable food”.
It also said that the board had “zero tolerance” towards any advertising for its products, and was in contact with the owner of the local burger joint.
ABC News contacted the owners of the two burger joints, as did local police, who have asked local media outlets to refrain from reporting on the matter.
