viewer, Mya, emailed me about a burger she had in Las Vegas. She told me it was
the most expensive burger she has ever had; she cannot remember if it had crab
or lobster, and she cannot remember if the crab/lobster was on top or inside of
the burger. So I came up with this burger to help recreate that vacation food
memory for her!
