THE HUMBLE SPICE burger - Irish people know them well.

Whether it’s the chipper variety of the Walsh brand from the supermarket, spice burgers have been a spicy, unique burger presence in our lives.

Throw one on a plate with chips and it’s one of the quintessential Irish meals

As Gastrogays describe, Spice Burgers are an Irish chipper meal to be cherished:

In a strange way, they are almost like an Irish Scotch Egg. Spice burgers really are an Irish delicacy; taking mince and mixing some herbs, onions and spices into it, before covering in a unique crumb. You can buy them, deep-fried and fresh in the chip shop, or get them pre-cooked from the supermarket, ready to reheat at home.

And they’re the taste of home for loads of people too

The world hasn’t a breeze what they are

They’re missing out

While famous people abroad pine for them

Fans remember the great spice burger scare of ’09 well

But everything turned out grand.

The spice burger can compete with the new fangled takeaway phenomenons

It’s been keeping the nation going for decades

The unique oniony-spicy coating is hard to explain to those who haven’t sampled it
