A cafe 30 minutes out of Brisbane is making headlines due to its scandalous burger. 

Cafe, ‘Fins n Fries’ in North Stradbroke Island has had a burger named the “Bali 9” on it’s menu for over four years. The chefs promise it only has that name because of it’s ingredients, but the looming execution of the Bali nine duo, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, has people saying that the burger’s name is distasteful. 

Owner / head chef Cameron Tobin told the Brisbane Times that the burger earned its name from having nine ingredients and a Balinese sauce. 

He has said that customers have been asking him recently if he’s “going to call it the Bali seven in a couple of weeks time?” which he agreed was ‘distasteful’. 

He says most people have a bit of a laugh but then he explains the real origin. He discovered the recipe while travelling through southeast Asia.

The burger is the most popular item on his menu, which he thinks is due to people believing it contains drugs.  

“It is my best seller, but I get lots of people ask me if there are illicit products used in the making of the burger,” he said

Instead, the nine ingredients are lettuce, sweet chilli, fried shallots, bean sprouts, cheese bacon, chicken-devilled pattie, Balinese satay sauce and a bun.

Do you the burger’s name is distasteful?
