Gourmet burgers and milkshakes to combat winter blues

Singing the Jack Frost blues stops right at the door of Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! this winter with a range of burgers specially designed to fire up the heart, soul and belly.
And if that alone isn’t enough to brighten a burger lover’s day, shake it up with the accompanying range of specially created cold weather milkshake flavours.
Protea Hotel Fire & Ice!, situated on New Church & Victoria Street, Tamboerskloof, has garnered a reputation for the quality of its gourmet burgers, but the special creations are only available for a month at a time.

Be sure to book your July date with the “Lamb”borghini, a minted lamb burger topped with warm brie cheese and glazed berries.
In August – just in time to celebrate the Super 15 final – comes the Bakkies Wors Burger. The SA delicacy is made for oke-sized appetites with the juiciest boerewors mince served with deep fried mustard-coated onion rings.

In September all eyes and stomachs turn to the US of A, where Uncle Sam’s kitchen helpers add some spice to the Stars and Stripes Southern Fried Chicken Burger.
There’s no arguing with the fact that nothing that goes down better with a burger than a shake, and host of divine flavours will be on offer during the next few months.

They will include:
• July: The Bees Knees – a sumptuous blend of rich dark Lindt chocolate infused with a citrus syrup and chewy bits of honeycomb, to bring back memories of hot summer days.
• August: Ouma and Oupa are the flavour of the month, sitting on the stoep waiting for the first signs of spring with cups of warm rooibos and honey, that have been infused in this shake; and
• September: Carnival Time is the celebration of the return of spring, and what better way to distil it in a glass than with flavours of toffee apples and creamy homemade fudge.
The 200g burgers are R125 each and the whopping 650ml shakes are R45 each.
