These sushi burgers are taking over Instagram and people are obsessed

What are we dealing with here?

NOT CONTENT WITH taking gorgeous pictures of their grub, Instagram users are also quick to spot a trend.

And the latest is an interesting spin on burgers.

Introducing the sushi burger

They’re popping up everywhere.

As The Telegraph explains:

Chefs craft the rice into the dome shape of a burger. It is sometimes left just-cooked, sticky and fresh, and sometimes fried for ease of eating.
Also included are traditional sushi components, like raw fish, ginger, seaweed and wasabi, but with a burger shop twist – so some versions include pulled pork and pickles, while others include a big, juicy burger patty.

Yes, there are deep fried versions

As Buzzfeed notes, an Instagram search of #sushiburger pulls up over 2300 posts

Which means that this is gathering some sort of pace

They might be trending on Instagram because they are a seriously photogenic but of grub

Of that there is no doubt.

It’s a brave new world for burgers
