This Restaurant Serves A Tarantula Burger... And Its Taste Is Not What You'd Expect

By Johanna Garner

Ever felt that what your favourite burger was missing was a nice crispy tarantula perched on top of it? No? Us neither! But it's exactly what this North Carolina diner has been serving up to its customers... and it's surprisingly popular!

Bullcity Burger and Brewery is THE restaurant that serves this unique burger and for the entire month of April last year, they held a lottery for anyone who fancied trying it! If you visited the restaurant and wanted to try their new "Tarantula Burger", then you had the chance to fill out a lottery ticket. They would then pick 18 names from the lottery and the lucky winners would have the 'pleasure' of eating the burger.

When asked why do they serve exotic meats, Bullcity Burger and Brewery said :

Exotic Meat Month is a chance to experience tastes that other cultures enjoy every day. It is a chance to learn about new flavors and increase your cultural awareness. It’s also fun! EMM is a chance to step outside the box and experience ingredients that are daring, fresh and exciting.

So what does a Tarantula Burger come with? The bun, burger patty, lettuce, hot sauce, and it's topped with roasted tarantula. Some customers are saying the taste is very similar to crab or other shellfish with a metallic taste. So, would you be up for the challenge?
