Try This Pink Burger at a Pop Up Shop in Minnesota
A pop-up shop in St. Paul, MN called El Norte Kitchen is selling these bizarre looking burgers. I keep saying their pink burgers but really the only thing that's pink is the bun. Which really isn't a bun, it's a concha.
Ok, wait, what's a concha? I didn't know either! Thrillist talked to Ben Allen, the chef and owner of El Norte. Ben said that a concha is a "rich [Mexican] bread with a sweet topping." With this concha burger, they wanted to balance out the sweetness of the bread so they added a beef patty, pepper jack cheese, bacon, pickled red onions, and jalapenos.
They don't just serve concha burgers though, they also have other delicious food like the California burrito.
