Burger Month a sinful celebration for carnivores
Craving a juicy burger? Shanghai Burger Month has you covered.
Hosted by Rachel Gouk, founder of Nomfluence food and drink blog, 12 restaurants in the city will offer 12 unique burgers throughout September.
Guests can grab an official Shanghai Burger Month passport at any of the participating venues, and collect stamps from eight restaurants to enter a lucky draw for cash prizes of up to 2,000 yuan (US$309.6) and vouchers worth 1,000 yuan (from Liquid Laundry, The Cannery, Green Common, Heritage by Madison and Highline).
In addition, you'll get a free bottle of Curtice Brothers sauce for every participating burger ordered while supplies last.
