If you thought that sibling rivalry was getting out of hand when you handmade your mum’s birthday card to top-trump your sister’s Hallmark offering, then step aside and see how it’s really done. What do you do if one of your brothers was a star of boy band New Kids On The Block and the other is none other than international Hollywood A-Lister Mark Wahlberg? Well the answer, it seems, is launch a highly successful chain of top-end burger joints.
Led by Paul Wahlberg, alongside his brothers, Wahlburgers will open its first branch outside North America when it comes to Covent Garden later this year. The restaurant, which even has it’s own reality TV show in the US, takes inspiration from the family cooking the Walhberg bothers’ father, offering a menu of high quality homemade burgers and sandwiches, fresh salads and milkshakes.
Over in the US the menu features Wahlberg family favourites like Mom’s Sloppy Joes and Mac ‘n Cheese with Smoked Bacon as well as a chef inspired menu of fresh burgers, housemade condiments, crispy haddock, seared chicken and vegetarian and gluten-free options. Signature items also include thin crispy onion rings, tater tots and thick creamy frappes and floats.
Also, the kids’ menu is called Smahlburgs, which is kinda cool.
