LOOK: North Carolina restaurant serves tarantula-topped burgers
A freshly made hamburger usually consists of a juicy patty, fresh tomatoes, crunchy lettuce, melt-in-your-mouth cheese and a soft bun. But in this burger joint in North Carolina, they chose to take it to the next level.
As part of their sixth annual Exotic Meat Month, Bull City Burger and Brewery is serving its customers burgers topped with an oven-roasted tarantula. The burger has 100 percent North Carolina pasture-raised beef, gruyere cheese and spicy chili sauce. Bull City Burger even shared a photo of what the burger looks like on its Twitter page posted last Saturday.
Martha did it yesterday, Randall did it today, and now it's David D's turn to give it a shot!

In the post, it seemed that two people had the guts to try the meal. It was David D’s turn to give it a shot.
And giving a brief description, customers who ordered it said it tasted “most like crab, or other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste.” They added: “BUT, the legs, the body…each bite tastes a bit different.”
It has been the second year since they served this kind of variety. Other choices include alligator, iguana, bison, turtle, bugs and python, among others, as reported by WRAL.com yesterday.
With the burger priced at $30 (P1,560), are you up for the challenge? Katrina Hallare /ra
