Bull City Burgers and Brewery/Facebook
Just when we thought we had seen it all, a restaurant in North Carolina is offering a hamburger topped with a most unconventional topping….an oven-roasted tarantula. But, it’s not as easy to get as one might think.
Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham is offering the $30 Tarantula Burger that features a pasture-raised beef burger topped with Gruyere cheese, spicy chili sauce and a crispy, oven-roasted tarantula. But, in order to score one of thespe unique burgers, patrons must enter a raffle. Winners are announced daily while tarantula supplies last, and they are only available during April, Exotic Meat Month.
No need to worry if tarantulas aren’t quite your cup of tea. Bull City Burger will be offering an array of exotic meats ranging from alligator, camel and python to Rocky Mountain oysters, reindeer and ostrich. For those with a sweet tooth, chocolate covered bugs will be offered as a topping for their homemade ice cream.
Check out some of last years’ offerings:
“Exotic Meat Month is a chance to experience tastes that other cultures enjoy every day. It is a chance to learn about new flavors and increase your cultural awareness. It’s also fun! EMM is a chance to step outside the box and experience ingredients that are daring, fresh and exciting,” the restaurant’s website reads.
For those brave enough to conquer 7 exotic treats, Bull City Burger will reward you with a free t-shirt. See one lucky diner get her first taste of the Tarantula Burger in the video below.
