RAMEN
Last year, lines
formed in New
York City when
Japanese-
American chef
Keizo Shimamoto
launched his
ramen burger. It’s
an all-beef patty
placed between
two fried mounds
of Sun-brand
noodles, with
a secret shoyu
glaze, scallions
and arugula.

ELK
A staple of
Canadian diets,
elk meat has
started appearing
in burgers at
eateries like The
Works Gourmet
Burger Bistro in
Toronto. Leaner
than beef, elk has
more protein and
less cholesterol,
making it a hit
with health-
conscious
carnivores.

OSTRICH
Cape Town’s The
Twelve Apostles
hotel serves
grilled ostrich
burgers – at its
chic Leopard
Bar – with red
wine marmalade
onions, and
blueberry
and beetroot
chutney. The
meat is similar to
the texture and
flavour of beef,
but leaner.
Hamburgers have traditionally consisted of
all-beef patties sandwiched in a bun. But that’s
all changed, with speciality burgers sweeping
restaurants big and small.
Where’ s the beef ?
Jonas and Alexandra
Millan, who run James
Beard Award-winning
Juvia inMiami, have
opened Restaurant Le Sereno
(above) on the island of St
Barthelemy in the Caribbean.
Guests dine on Japanese-inspired
French fare like wagyu dumplings
with bonito flakes and parsnip
puree by the private beach.

A single chopstick
without its partner is
like a sneaker without
laces – not much
use. But the clever
design of these Rassen
chopsticks (left) lets
you interlock two
chopsticks so they
become one when
not in use – greatly
reducing the chance
of one half of a pair
being misplaced.
Ideal for the eco-
friendly traveller who
eschews disposable
chopsticks and
always carries a pair
of his own around.
