DINING OUT: 10 days of heaven for burger lovers

By Margot Thomas

BURGER LOVERS in Panama get to celebrate the longest “week” of the year  in March, and the opportunity  to feast on gourmet burgers  across the city  as  40 different chefs strive  for the title  Burger Master Chef 2017.

The fourth edition of Burger “week” will run  March 10 to 20.

It is a  gastronomic activity aiming  to show that “hamburgers are not limited to bread, meat and cheese,” said a press release from the organizers.

The -gourmet offerings will not be at fast  food chain  prices  and will  range from  $10 to $16  but will include a beer or ginger ale. Tourists will get a 10 percent discount and  resident seniors will get the customary jubilado discount.

During  the Burger week diners will have the opportunity to choose their favorite hamburger in a vote through the internet while a jury will choose six semifinalists to  face each other on March 30 at the Hotel Riu, competing  for the Burger Master Chef title. Tickets will be $30.00 and will be available on Panatickets.

From Monday, Feb.  20   information about the participating restaurants and their hamburgers will be available at http://burger.week.com.pa/

“Burger Week is a  gastronomic activity aims to show different varieties of hamburgers that exist and are not limited to bread, meat and cheese,” said a press release from the organizers.
