Hesburger’s Rukkifileeburger


By Filed Under: mayonnaise, onion, pork cutlet, tomato


Back in May, my family went on a trip to Estonia. While there, I had the opportunity to eat at places one does not generally eat at in the United States.

For example, Hesburger. A fast-food joint, not unlike the places we know of with kingly burgers or burgers owned by a clown. However, as Hesburger is more of a European thing, they can have some interesting things there.

This sandwich is the “Rukkifileeburger”, which is Estonian for “Rye fillet burger”. Adding the “burger” on the end is a little misleading, since it contains a pork fillet of some sort, and not a meat patty we generally associate with burgers.

Anyway, the main ingredients are the pork, lettuce, tomatoes, and onion rings, with some manner of special sauce (“paprika mayo” apparently), all between two slices of dark rye bread. Rye bread is more popular in some European countries, so Hesburger decided to offer rye sandwiches in their burger joints, I guess.

The sandwich was a little better than I expected, but I wasn’t really expecting much. The rye bread was interesting… I expected slices of a loaf of rye, but it’s more like one of those rectangular shaped chicken sandwiches you might find in fast food places here in the US. Except instead of whatever bun they’d use here, it was rye bread.

Still, it could’ve been better. I mean, this is fast food we’re talkin’ here. Fast food isn’t well known for the greatest of sandwiches. But I greatly support unusual sandwich choices in places, and this gave me a chance to write about rye-fillet-burgers. I’d eat another if I get the chance, though largely for the novelty of eating an odd sandwich like this in a fast food place.

    That rye bread you’re describing is a regular rye bread. All over Europe, they are bought in shops like that. The ‘odd’ sandwich you ate is not odd. It’s a normal sandwich. Normal bread with normal meat inside. Normal sandwich.

    Yeah, maybe in Europe, but I don’t normally eat a rukkifileeburger at home in the States.

    Some people find “brain sandwiches” to be normal too, I’m sure. I am not one of those people.

    But even so, surely there’s nothing wrong with sharing pictures of normal sandwiches!

    Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many options out there that I’m totally
    overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!
