Pokemon Burgers Make Me Want to Play With My Food

As if I needed another reason to crave a hamburger, along comes the limited-edition (and totally un-gettable) Pokemon Burger:

Besides being adorable, it's got serious burger cred - it's the creation of Australia's beloved Hashtag Burgers. According to the AU Review: "Inventive burger Chef Seb (ex-Mr Crackles, Thirsty Bird) has come up with flavours to match the corresponding Pokemon type, dreaming up what each Pokemon’s personality would ‘taste’ like and building some burgs from there. So far, they’ve got Bulbasaur, Pikachu, and Charmandar (where Squirtle at?) in burger form with hopes of more Pokemon to come (please not Zubat)."

It's for sale for only two weeks at Down N Out restaurant's Sydney location. Their Facebook page bears the grim news nightly:

Catch Your Own!

If you can't make it to Sydney, maybe you can hack your own. Make your own hamburger buns and add food coloring to the dough. Add singed corn-chip ears. For the face, Allrecipes senior editor Vanessa Greaves tells me you can buy a food-safe felt pen at craft-supply stores. Gotta catch 'em all!
