Having a coke with your burger is pretty common, however racking up a fat line of booger sugar and then going to down on a greasy pile of meat is somewhat less so.
However, pop-up burger bar “Pablo Escoburgers” seem set to change that, by very cheekily serving their signature burger with a nice fat line of garlic flour and a fake $100 bill.
Opinions ranged from the standard “I love a coke with my burger” all the way to “This is tearing apart the ethical fabric on which this country was built on”.
Co-owner Vaughn Marks issued a statement hitting back at the criticism they recieved, claiming it’s impossible not to offend people these days.
“We are very proud of our burgers but we do also understand that Pablo Escobar was a horrible man who destroyed the lives of thousands of Colombians,” the statement read.
“We do not condone, idolize or promote Pablo Emilio Escobar or his actions in anyway. We are however Australian and know how to have a laugh about a good play on words.
“Its just a name of a pop-up burger bar not really a theme. Hard not to offend someone in 2019.”
The restaurant is sticking to its guns and has refused to change their name or menu items.
