8 Different Types of Burgers You Can Find Around the World
The Ramly Burger

Mexican Avocado Burger
Heading over to Mexico, you can find the Mexican Avocado Burger. This burger has a lot of wonderful seasonings cooked within it. It’s cooked to perfection and then topped with plenty of delicious toppings.
Halfway through the grilling process, the burger is met with more wonderful seasonings. This is done at the halfway mark to prevent the burger from becoming too tough. Once the burger is done cooking, it’s topped off with avocado, crema, and cilantro.
Onions are also sometimes added to this burger, as well.
For a slightly different spin on a burger, head over to Provence where you can find the spiced-lamb burgers. For those who enjoy eating lamb meat, this burger is a must-have. For those who aren’t as accustomed to eating lamb, this burger is worth a try as it might change your mind.
On these burgers, you can find some unique ingredients, including Epoisses, which is a French cheese made from cow milk. Another unique ingredient used on this burger is the Nicoise olive. It’s quite the combination and a big difference from the typical American burger.
Our next stop is in Germany. Here, you’ll discover the Hamburg Steak Burger. The Hamburg Steak is a steak patty that’s steak that’s been chopped up into small pieces and then formed into a patty.
Unlike the usual hamburger, the Hamburg Steak Burger is served without a bun. It almost resembles what we know to be the Salsbury Steak. It’s served on a plate with a few vegetables, such as asparagus and baked potatoes.
“The Lot” Burger
In Australia, you can enjoy “The Lot” Burger. “The Lot” Burger, is what we would consider a burger with “the works.” This burger, however, has more than the typical tomato, lettuce, onion, and pickle.
“The Lot” Burger comes with all of the toppings listed above and then some. Some of the other types of toppings that you’ll find on this burger are bacon, a fried egg, sliced beets, and a pineapple. “The Lot” Burger takes “the works” to a whole new level!
Now, this next burger is for those who don’t mind walking on the wild side. The Donkey Burger can be found in China and is famous in the province of Hebei. No, the Donkey Burger doesn’t get its name from the village it became popular in or what it resembles.
This burger is actually made from ground-up donkey meat. The bun that the donkey is served on is a layered flatbread (Shao bing) and is most commonly topped off with green peppers or cilantro. The donkey burger tradition started during the Ming dynasty.
During this time, they decided that they preferred the flavor of the donkey over the flavor of the horse. So, if you’re too keen on horse meat, then consider trying donkey!
Over in Asia, you can find the Rice Burger. Rice Burgers are burgers that used rice as the bun instead of bread. The patties aren’t your typical beef patties either.
Rice burgers come with fried burdock, shrimp fritters, strips of beef, and even fried pork as the patty. It’s like having a delicious rice bowl with your favorite meats without having to use any utensils!
The Impossible Burger
This next burger isn’t an actual beef burger, but it’s unique enough to make it to our list. Some of the best burger restaurants provide new and exciting spins of the burger. This is exactly what the Hard Rock Cafe in Angkor is doing.
The restaurant has a variety of different burgers on their menu, but the most unique item is the Impossible burger made with a 100% vegan plant-based patty. On top of this burger, you’ll be greeted with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a large crispy onion ring. It’s a more exciting choice than black bean burgers.
