A Cape Town pub has established a new record for South Africa’s biggest burger with a creation that weighed in at nearly 80kgs

Cape Town pub and eatery Annie’s Ladies Bar made history this weekend when they produced the most massive handmade burger in South Africa.

The record attempt on Saturday 27 July was a roaring success with the pub packed full of patrons as well as members of the press.

The raw burger patty weighed in at over 50 kg but there was still some uncertainty regarding how much of that mass it would lose on the braai.

At the centre of all the fanfare, the burger as a whole eventually tipped the scales at 79.5 kg while the pure beef patty weighed a whopping 35 kg once cooked. The burger was braaied on a specially made pan and put together in front of the eager crowd. They cheered on as the scale showed the record had been smashed.

South Africa’s biggest burger to the Guinness Book of World Records

This effort is a warm-up for an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records planned for October this year.

The massive burger also acted as a promotion for a range of super-sized patties sold at Annie’s.

Annie’s hopes to soon bring to market the largest regularly available burger even bigger than their current Monster Challenge Burger. The Challenge burger contains three 337g beef patties and weighs over 1kg, if you can eat the monster in less than 25 minutes it is free. For those looking for something less challenging, Annie’s offers an excellent array of pub grub.

Joe’s homemade sauces and Monster burger patties are available at Annie’s, so you can enjoy their incredible flavour at home or a braai with friends. Joe’s Monster Burger patties can be cooked from frozen, and they are made with real beef. The range of sauces also includes an incredible Tomato Chilli Jam and a range of flavours to suit any palate.

If you are thinking of popping into the famous Annie’s, the pub and eatery is located at Unit 4 Golem Park, Willow Road Bellville close to Stikland industrial estate. If you are in the area and unsure of how to get there, give them a call on 021 948 7084.
