Tong Road’s infamous rainbow bagel burgers are about to get some serious air time.
Launching this week on BBC is Britain’s Top Takeaways, a competitive cooking show where top-rated takeaway services battle it out to be ranked as the best of their competitors and take home the title of ‘Britain’s Best’.
Episode three will be broadcast this Wednesday 11 May and it’s all about those juicy patties, sauces aplenty and brioche buns: it’s burger night.
Competing for the prestigious title of Britain’s top-rated burger takeaway, Ollie and Danny from Dope Burger, famous in Yorkshire for their rainbow bagel buns, will be competing alongside top burger joints from across the UK.
Specialising in all things colourful, Dope Burgers have set up five different locations around Yorkshire: three in Hull, one in Doncaster and one right here in Leeds on Tong Road.
Their revolutionary burgers, made with ingredients like rainbow buns and Biscoff lotus biscuits are just some of the ways that the burger joint is proving it deserves a place on the Leeds foodie scene.
The BBC have confirmed that on the Burger Night episode of Britain’s Top Takeaways, Dope Burgers will compete against Mooshies, a London-based vegan burger joint and Burger Bros in Brighton.
They won’t be the only Yorkshire competitors rolling into the Manchester-based set, a pair of cousins bringing the flavours of the USA all the way to the kitchen will feature on the show from Wakefield’s Bear Kitchen.
If you want to grab a taste ahead of the TV showing, Leeds’ own Tong Road is home to one of the five Dope Burger spots- and you can let your imagination run wild with your burger selection. Think all your favourite burger toppings wrapped between two juicy buns painted brighter than the spray-painted walls of the shop: it really is something quite unique.
Dope Burgers quickly shot to fame last year for offering out an alternative to the legendary Salt Bae burger at an affordable price. As you’d imagine, it sold out the same day and whilst it hasn’t made a return to the menu just yet, there’s still a real selection of unique combinations that will have you drooling.
You don’t even have to choose out one specific burger to get the neon rainbow version, you can simply upgrade and existing order to a rainbow bun for £1. Bargain for the ‘gram when you think about it.
