Take the World Burger Tour at Hard Rock Cafe

By now you’ve had a gourmet burger—maybe several—that incorporates “global flavors.” Now consider that the Hard Rock Cafe actually has restaurant locations across the globe, from Cambodia to Bahrain, Paraguay to Puerto Rico. Then consider that throughout the months of May and June, the two Vegas locations are serving up specialty burgers ($17.95) from those exotic Hard Rock spots, like pickled veggie-topped Banh Mi Burger from Ho Chi Minh City or the double-stacked pork tower that is the Schnitzel Burger from Cologne, Germany.

Whether you hit the Strip or visit the original on Paradise, a tasty world burger awaits. The different cafes have different flavors, so do some exploring. (That Schnitzel is the only burger at both restaurants.) For the wildest bite, I recommend Dubai’s Date Burger, an Angus patty topped with fresh dates and date chutney and hunks of cream cheese—sweet, rich, fantastic.

Hard Rock Cafe 4475 Paradise Road, 702-733-8400; 3771 Las Vegas Blvd. S. #120, 702-733-7625. Hours vary by location.
