Go Burger Gets Olympic Fever

It's hard to get better than that McDonald's Olympics promotion in 1984 that had our seven-year-old gobs stuffed with Big Macs when much of the Eastern Bloc and its allies pulled out of the games. But Hollywood's Go Burger is giving it a try with a menu of seven rotating internationally-influenced burgers being offered at the restaurant through next Thursday. The concept is fairly easy to follow. There's a "Heart & Seoul" burger with bulgogi, fried egg, and kim chi slaw, a "Croque Monsiuer" burger with bechamel and gruyere in homage to our French friends, and a "Poutine Burger" for the Canucks, in addition to four other variations and a fish-and-chips burger available each day. You may have to trade in a medal for the little $15-$16 burgers, but we admit a tempura-fried "Samurai Burger" has our interest piqued. Check out Go Burger's full roster of Olympics burgers below.
