PYT’s new burger of the week, and we may have to agree. The Lasagna-Bun Burger swaps out boring bread for two thick slices of golden, deep-fried lasagna, which surround a meatball-seasoned burger for a deliciously absurd mashup.
The patty itself is topped with melted provolone and housemade marinara, and the whole thing is served on a plate with Parmesan-seasoned fries for $15. Is the crispy, saucy, cheesy creation really possible to eat like a burger? It is, according to Up, though he warns that it’s not necessarily pretty (tip: don’t try this on a first date).
“If you can get it all up to your mouth in one piece, then you just need to start eating and keep on going - don’t stop or it’ll come down like a five-foot-tall house of cards,” Up says. “We’re recommending a knife and fork, but it’s all up to you and how serious you are about making it happen.”
Seems like a worthy challenge. The burger is available this week only, so swing out to Northern Liberties and duck inside the air conditioned neon bar to give it a try (215-964-9009).
