Burgers are big business and everyone has their favourite. The Dublin Burger Championship put 16 of those favourites against each other in a knockout style tournament to see who would come out on top. After 4 days of voting and over 20,000 votes Featherblade was crowned king, overcoming Wowburger in the final by the slimmest of margins. The popular Dawson Street restaurant and No.5 seed – well known for its excellent steaks – advanced to the final after 3 tough match ups against Farmer Browns, Box Burger and the powerhouse No.1 seed that is Bunsen in a closely contested semi final.
All burgers use their signature patty made from smoked brisket, aged striplion & chuck taken off grass fed Irish Angus. Was it the use of Applewood Smoked Sweet Bacon that sealed the deal though? Featherblade are currently offering a Bacon Cheeseburger box at home and many have commented on the wonderful bacon that comes with it. Dj and foodie funny guy Marcus O’Laoire joked he would like to be in a relationship with the thick cut pork and we can understand his desire after our own creation at home.
Wowburger were unlucky to miss out on the title after coming through their own tight semi final with BuJo but the championship and The Dublin Patty Cup is Featherblade’s for 2020.
