"Local Legendary Burgers" from around the world to hit Hard Rock Cafe Niagara's menu

For the first time ever, Hard Rock Cafe Niagara gives guests a backstage pass to sample "Local Legendary Burger" offerings, showcasing the flavor and ingredients at Hard Rock locations across the globe as part of the new "World Burger Tour" menu. These unique burger "acts" from three continents will take center stage at Hard Rock Cafe Niagara through Tuesday, June 30.

Hard Rock gives chefs at their cafes the freedom to create a unique "Legendary Burger" that captures the local flavors of their city and is only available at that cafe location ... until now.

Hard Rock's culinary team evaluated more than 150 local burgers, with fan favorites selected to star on a limited-time "World Burger Tour" menu. These four burgers will be featured at Hard Rock Cafe Niagara in addition to its unique "Local Legendary," the Beef on Kimmelweck Burger, which features a beef patty topped with horseradish, onion frizzles and served on a kimmelweck roll. From the Sweet & Sour Burger in Hong Kong, featuring a grilled pineapple drizzled with house-made sweet and sour sauce to the Tandoori Spiced Chicken Burger in Mumbai, featuring aromatic spices and fresh herbs, Hard Rock's "Local Legendary Burgers" are packing their bags (or buns) and heading out to Hard Rock Cafes across the country, with a special stop at Hard Rock Cafe Niagara.

"As a global brand, Hard Rock understands the importance of tailoring its menu and embracing the different taste profiles of guests at each of our locations," said Michael Beacham, senior vice president and chief operating officer of corporate cafes for Hard Rock International. "The 'World Burger Tour' provides us with a new way to share a taste of the 'Local Legendary' experience with burger fans around the world!"

Sizzling headliners that will be featured at Hard Rock Cafe Niagara as part of Hard Rock Cafe's "World Burger Tour" menu include:

Banh Mi Burger - this Vietnamese "Legendary" features a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with house-made Vietnamese glaze, pickled vegetables and cucumbers accompanied by a garnish of cilantro and green onions

Sweet & Sour Burger - this Chinese "Legendary" features a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with a fried onion ring, bell peppers and grilled pineapple drizzled with house-made sweet and sour sauce

Tandoori Spiced Chicken Burger - this Indian "Legendary" features a dark meat chicken patty seasoned with aromatic spices and fresh herbs, topped with mint mayonnaise and served with a side of cucumber

The Bosphorus Burger - this Turkish "Legendary" features a Certified Angus Beef patty topped with homemade eggplant salad, fresh and flavorful haydari sauce and pickle slices 

"Local Legendary Burgers" are served with lettuce, tomato and paired with the ultimate sidekick - Hard Rock's Savory Artisan French fries. Throughout the "World Burger Tour," each French fry selection is paired with a complementary signature dipping sauce. Guests in select markets can choose from Hard Rock's classic seasoned french fries or additional new offerings, including chili seasoned fries with chipotle garlic ketchup, Parmesan Romano fries with garlic aioli and herb and garlic fries with chimichurri mayo*.

"Local chefs at Hard Rock Cafes take great pride in conceptualizing and creating a 'Local Legendary Burger' that perfectly captures the culinary essence of their home city," said Russell Booth, executive chef for Hard Rock International. "I speak for each of them when I say we're excited to take our 'Legends' on the road this summer."

Just like the artists whose memorabilia lines the walls at Hard Rock locations worldwide, the burgers Hard Rock Cafe serves are nothing short of "Legendary." All "Legendary Burgers" feature the highest quality meats, fresh ingredients, savory sauces and rich, melted cheeses. Every half-pound Angus burger is made with Hard Rock's proprietary blend of premium Certified Angus Beef.

As part of the "World Burger Tour" menu, Hard Rock Cafe Niagara will also showcase the brand's world-famous cocktails. Guests can stop by Hard Rock Cafe Niagara to try out the latest items or visit www.hardrock.com/niagarafalls for more information.
