What? You won't stoop to eat proletariat food of McDonald's? Perhaps all you need is a little bourgeois re-imagining.
In a project called Happier Meals for The Grid, four Toronto chefs turned a Big Mac combo (that's burger, fries, a coke, and condiment) into a five-star meal. Well, what looks like it anyhow. This one above is by Raj and Aravind Kozhikott:
Aravind’s Open-Faced Samosas
Father-and-son team Raj and Aravind Kozhikott wanted their creation to reflect their restaurant’s Indian cuisine. To make the samosa filling, they diced the meat, mixed it with the onion and used barbecue sauce as a binding agent before wrapping it in two rolled-out-and-fried burger buns. The fries were bundled up using strips of a cut-up fry box. The cheese from the burger was scraped off the patty and used as a sauce.
