Chicago burger place Kuma’s Corner is known for their bizarrely themed specialty burgers, all of which are named after heavy metal acts. Their latest, The Ghost (named for Swedish band Ghost B.C.), is courting more controversy than most, due to its special ingredients representing the blood and body of Jesus Christ.
The Ghost comes topped with a red wine reduction and an (unconsecrated) communion wafer, plus goat shoulder, white cheddar, and Ghost chile aioli. Despite the fact that an unconsecrated communion wafer is technically just a cracker, some are still upset by the blasphemous burger. Others are more likely to be offended by the Ghost’s $17 asking price, which includes an order of either fries, chips, or a side salad.
If you’re feeling a little godless and are in the Chicago area, you can head to Kuma’s Corner to try the Ghost today. And check out their website here for more information, including a post on the recent controversy.
