Ion balkan burger

I went to a phone launch today, and I was a bit worried if they would feed us nice food. I shouldn’t have been – they brought in a food truck. Well, a food bus, actually – the Balkan Burger Bus. It was so delicious. The folded patty meant that all those fresh veggies didn’t just drip and juice everywhere, keeping the freshness in instead. With a nuanced cheese that is actually a mixture of Kashkaval and Mozzarella, as well as a mildly spicy and incredibly flavorful sauce, this burger was fresh, exotic and definitely delicious. If you see them at an event and get a chance to try it, I recommend them – although apparently the hot version isn’t as tasty as the mild one.

    How is it that the biggest MOBA game (League of Legends) has such a small prize pool yet Dota2 has a prize pool quadruple what they have. I think they should perhaps get the LoL community to pay in some cash to the winning prize pool (The same compendium type of idea dota2 has).

      i’ve wondered the same thing, but then Riot would have to give some control to the community, and we know how they feel about that… 😛

      Did they warm the food on the phone?

    I’ve had the Balkan Burger, every one was raving about it. It was decent, but not brilliant

      I want to try Rocomamma’s cause everyone keeps raving about it. Have already tried the place you have ed raved about, Burger Bistro (owner lives near me, nice family)

      Looked at menu: not expensive looking for what you get at all, wonder how it tastes

        How did you like Burger Bistro?

        Rocomamas wings are very, very nice. Also, the flapjack pudding is majestic AF
