    Vietnamese restaurant introduces Coronaburger ? too soon?

    https://www.nydailynews.com/news/wor...mai-story.html

    Sorry, KFC: Your deep-fried, artery clogging Double Down sandwich has nothing on the Coronaburger.

    A Vietnamese restaurant is selling a burger served in a bun that looks like the deadly microscopic coronavirus, according to the South China Morning Post.

    Chef Hoang Tung said he started serving his burger on a crown-shaped bun resembling the virus to take the fear out of the pandemic that has infected nearly a half-million people worldwide. The bun is dyed with green tea.

    ?We have this joke that if you are scared of something, you should eat it,? Tung said from his eatery in Hanoi.

    Tung?s Pizza Home restaurant reportedly sells 50 corona-inspired burgers a day in the country that has reported 153 cases of coronavirus infection. There have been no known fatalities, according to Johns Hopkins University.

    Tung hopes the unusual burger brings "joy to others during this pandemic.?

    Hanoi?s restaurants have closed down to prevent the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus, but the Coronaburger can still be ordered for take-out.

    Restaurant owner Hoang Tung holds up a "Corona burger" in Hanoi, Vietnam on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. As the world is fighting against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Vietnamese restaurant hopes to cheer people up with their new creation, in which the burger buns shape like a coronavirus.(Hau Dinh/AP)

    Well, it's obviously not as prevalent there so to them it wouldn't be considered insensitive. I like the idea of eating what you're afraid of and he's making a killing with it. I say kudos to his ingenuity to set himself apart from the other restaurants during this crisis. It could be what keeps his business alive.
