fergburger


last night, during the pub crawl, i'd had enough of all that, and i made my (usual) lenny escape -- silently, quietly, without a lot of ceremonial hugs. ..in other words, i just ran! :)
.
anyway, i was feeling a bit peckish. ..it was that time of "late-nite" when every wellness-oriented thought in my mind was saying "fruits, vegetables, breeeeeeeeeeathe..."
.
blah, blah, blah.
.
a much louder inner-voice said "fergburger!"
.
now, "fergberger" alledgedly originated when a couple of kiwi dudes decided to sell GIANT burgers to the lushes who were returning back from late-night pub crawls. ..(they pronounce it with a silent "g")
.
what they found was that people of all ages and sizes and shapes wanted to chow down on gigantic burgers at any time of the day, so they opened-up operations 24-7.
.
i went with the basic cheeze fergburger, with lettuce and tomato (which i think incurred an extra charge).
.
confession: i also ordered the giant fries.
.
now... you can choose to (a) eat badly and feel guilty, or (b) to eat badly and enjoy every, single, tiny, greasy, delicious bit of decadence. ..need any help deducing which way a martineau goes, given that choice????
.
naturally, fergburger is a now a franchise.
.
in greymouth, you can find your local fergburger right next to any (i am not making this up) super liquors.
