This year’s World Burger Tour competition began with an initial round of 150+ new burgers developed by Hard Rock Cafe chefs around the world showing their take on the best burger featuring ingredients inspired by their local culture and personal taste. Based on sales performance, guest preference and culinary taste testing of the burgers at their originating location this spring, the five top finalists made it to the final round where they are being added for a limited time to all Cafe menus from June 14 through September 2, 2024.

“At Hard Rock Cafe Manila and Hard Rock Cafe Makati, we draw inspiration from the thematic decors inside the restaurant, unique local dishes and electrifying performances of our local bands as well as the friendly and hospitable staff, crew and management to create memorable visits with outstanding food and beverages, iconic memorabilia from The Black Eyed Peas, Jason Sutter from Smashmouth, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Adams and more,” said Mr. Brian Peck, Director for Operations. “We hope our guests love trying the limited-time burgers through Hard Rock’s World Burger Tour competition, and that their favorite makes it on the global menu! We are thrilled to use our Cafe as one of the many places to showcase Hard Rock flavors from around the globe.”
