The aloha burger, also known as a Hawaiian burger, is famous all over the world. What makes this burger special is the addition of sliced pineapple, which offers extra juiciness to the burger. The combination of the savory meat and the sweet pineapple produces a unique culinary experience. Often served with teriyaki sauce, this burger is also complemented by ketchup or mayonnaise.

Tips and Techniques

  • Toast the inner part of the buns to avoid sogginess.
  • Maintain the outer part of the bun untoasted for softer outside texture.
  • Grill the sliced pineapple to produce a char flavor.
  • Double-fry the French fries for a crunchier texture.
  • Add other vegetables such as onion, if desired.
