A burger is not just “a burger.” At least that’s never the case at these seven Calgary restaurants who are serving up some creative, outrageous, epic, and even downright crazy burger creations.

The Tokyo Bun at Regrub

So, basically this is a sushi burger. Yep, a sushi burger! Regrub’s Tokyo Bun is made with a sushi-grade tuna patty, teriyaki, wasabi, aioli, pickled ginger, nori chips, fresh avocado pate, and a bun made of sushi rice.

Doug’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper” Burger at Boogie’s Burgers

You’d better come hungry, and with your doctor on speed dial. This one’s got four all beef patties, four slices of bacon, a butterflied 100% all beef wiener, two slices of cheddar, a fried egg, boogies signature red sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion, all topped off with a mini corn dog.
