The Hard Rock Cafe in the Inner Harbor has been offering comfort food, libations, rock videos, and a gallery of rare rock memorabilia for years. Now they are presenting a selection of burgers created by Hard Rock chefs from their restaurants around the world. Until June 30th, diners can experience a world tour of burgers. The Minx and I were recently invited to sample these sandwiches designed to put one in the mood of lands far away.
Hard Rock has given 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. More than 150 local burgers were evaluated by Hard Rock’s culinary team, with fan favorites selected to star on a limited-time World Burger Tour menu. These four burgers will be featured at Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore in addition to its unique Local Original Legendary Burger topped with smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, golden fried onion rings, crisp lettuce and vine ripened tomato.
Before we tucked into the burgers, we were offered a selection of specialty cocktails to choose from. I went with their most popular: the Mai Tai One On. Light and sweet with strong citrus flavors, one might forget that there is Mount Gay Eclipse rum in it, so drink responsibly. The Minx tried the Mezcarita, which while full of the flavors of coconut , strawberry, and orange, the smoky Del Maquat mezcal is ever present. We also tasted the Pomegranate Mule and the Pineapple Ginger Caipirinha, so we were eager to try out some food to soak up the booze.
