Most tourists visiting Paris don't come for the burgers, but an exception might now be made for "Le Zlatan," an obnoxiously oversized meaty treat created in honor of Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibra is big, tough to handle and very expensive — much like this new burger. He's also thought by some to be overrated and can fill you with regret if you get too close to him — much like this new burger.
The Guardian has the mouth-watering details of the dish being offered by Doddy's Cafe in the Parisian suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt:
The burger, just like the PSG forward, is a commanding presence, combining 600 grams [over 1.3lbs] of mince beef with onions, bacon and three types of cheese including cheddar, Emmental and Auvergne blue, all contained in a giant bun that has been specially made for the restaurant.
The gigantic burger costs a princely €29.90 ($40.50), which is double the price most other burgers they offer. Presumably, if you dare to order it you must refer to yourself only in the third person.
The menu description — which is accompanied by a silhouette of a man performing a high kick — boasts that "even Chuck Norris couldn't fit it in his mouth."
Restaurant manager Jean-Philippe Grandin has challenged the mighty Zlatan to come and taste his eponymous meal, which only seven customers have managed to finish so far.
If Grandin really wants the Swede to come to his restaurant, he should casually mention that Pep Guardiola was one of the folks who couldn't finish the burger. Zlatan would come down, inhale three of them and flying kick the waiter in the throat quicker than you can say "Catalan coward."
