This new hamburguer it’s a limited edition and will be avaiable at all Burguer King restaurants in Portugal.

The BURGER KING® restaurants astonish  again their consumers and present THE KING BURGER their first burger with a fried egg. This new hamburguer counts amoung their ingredients, beside the egg, cow meat, crisp onion, four slices of cheese, bacon and a tasty corn bread.

Following the usual line of the company to offer the highest quality and authentic flavors in all its products this new ingredient will undergo rigorous quality controls through a unique technique that allows to conserve the egg, coming from the Basque Country, with a well defined flavor, a creamy yolk and all the nutrients.

The protagonist of this process is Javier Yzuel, owner of Food Style, who states “One of the keys to success is undoubtedly the raw material. Not pass more than three days since our chickens lay eggs until they go through the process of elaboration and conservation, so we get an exceptional taste and quality. From there, that’s when the magic begins. A secret process that has taken us three years of hard work and thanks to which we have achieved our goal: to create a fried egg just like the ones we make at home

We are sure that many consumers were looking for this combination, “says Michael Hancock General Manager of BURGER KING® for Southern Europe.
