Friday Eve and a Burger Pie. Thats the Shizzle!


It's Friday Eve....sounds better than Thursday right?  Right...well thats my theory and I'm sticking to it.

Our local 94.7 Highveld Stereo radio station this morning, had an interview with an Australian stand-up comedian on.  

It was Jim Jeffries, somone I had never heard of before but after his rave about South Africa's Burger Pies, I thought it best I google and YouBoob him to see more of his stuff.  

(He's playing his Alcoholocaust show at the JHB Civic this week and yeah, tickets are still available *punt punt*)

You see, Jim's here on an SA tour at the moment and all the South African's he meets want to take him to show of all the nice fancy restaurants and hot spots in Johannesburg.  However, he's discovered the BP Express 24 hour garage shop Burger Pies  and that's all he wants.

Jim says that the person who invented these gems should be knighted!!  A Burger Pie is all the scrumptuousness of a cheese burger but all wrapped up in a yummy tastey flakey pastry baked to golden perfection. 

I must tell you from personal experience that, at 2am in the morning, a Burger Pie is the Fucking Shizzle but when it repeats at 7am the next morning, the taste is NOT so hot.   Och, perhaps that was all the booze and cigars consumed the night before...och fuck, that's a whole other post.

So, celebrate your Friday Eve with a BP gas station Burger Pie and coke tonight and tell me what you think.

I do agree with you - that burger pie is only good in the wee morning hours. The next day however, it is not

Not a fan of the burger pie. I'd rather do a snake and gigmy one.

More of a shepherd's pie kind of guy, myself. Nothing quite says, shut up and go to sleep like tucking into a good helping.

I never heard of it, but it sounds absolutely amazing! And this video needs to be set to music and auto-tuned. I'd play that nice and loud for the neighbors...

I'll stick with my Chocolate Devotion ice cream creation by Cold Stone Creamery...75% of my daily caloric limit and 200% of my daily fat intake limit. ;)
