Succulent Coloured Burgers

As we wind down on Burger Week 2019, I would like to highlight what I consider the most exciting theme this year, Sarovas’ scrumptious Coloured Burgers. Many restaurants go out of their way to entice and excite their customers with new burger recipes and variations to tantalize their taste buds. And this is a lot of fun!
