All kinds of unique, culturally diverse hamburgers have been making waves in the culinary world over the last few years. Or maybe these burgers have always been here, and we’re just running out of things to read about on the Internet (it could happen). A beefy staple, the burger has its boots on the ground in restaurants and pubs across the world. But they're not all created equal. Ranging from burgers wrapped in gold (seriously!) to burgers squeezed in between donuts, the artery cloggers on this list are some of the best specialty burgers you can eat on this island earth.

Who doesn’t like a good burger? Even vegans like burgers (despite their burgers being not as good as regular burgers). Maybe it’s the shape, or maybe we associate hamburgers with memories of summer, friends, backyards, and good times.

Even though the hamburger is synonymous with America, chefs from across the world put their own spins on this comfort food. The burgers on this list are some of the most interesting and exciting steamed hams that you can find anywhere, but of course they tend to come from the USA.

Vote up the specialty burger that you think looks the most delicious. And if your city does something freaky with a piece of cow between a couple of buns, leave us a comment – we want to eat the thing you love!
