Shea's Lounge Burger

Have you ever created a sandwich so good that you thought it should forever be immortalized on a menu at your favorite lunch spot? That was the challenge the owner of On A Roll in Conshohocken presented to frequent lunch customer, Shea Roggio; if his sandwich was epic enough, it would be named after him and put on the specials menu. Returning to the office, Shea found himself struggling to concentrate on work, as all he could think about was the sandwich. After some deliberation, he came up with the perfect idea:

“I tried to create a sandwich for spice enthusiasts who are not on the low fat, low carb diet. And hence the creation of the “Shea’s Lounge”. It’s a sandwich that prohibits any physical activity for about 2 hours after digesting, and forces you to “lounge” around and not get any work done. That’s why I like it so much.”

So what does the Shea’s Lounge (photographed beautifully above by Andrea Monzo) consist of? Two homemade turkey burgers are stacked on a large, fluffy kaiser roll that is smeared with habanero paste and topped with two layers of bacon, melted American and cheddar cheese, a fried egg and Sriracha. I can feel the perspiration gathering on my brow just thinking about it.
