Blueberry Cardamom Pie Shake with preserves from Green Aisle Grocery.

P’unk Burger has been busy. They’ve sold 10,000 burgers since their February opening so now they’re celebrating with exciting new menu items and collaborations. These new burgers, shakes, and salads will stay on through the end of June at least.

The new burgers include the Big Fat Greek Burger and the Jalapeno Burger. The BFGB is a collaboration between the owners and their neighbor, Amin Bitar of Bitar’s. It features organic lamb with smashed falafel, tzatziki, cucumber and red onion.

The Jalapeno Burger is thanks to a collaboration with 1732 Meats: the organic beef burger is topped with 1732’s jalapeno bacon and then further perfected with jalapeno jack cheese, cilantro and pico de gallo. Though this burger was introduced in May, its feature is extended through June as it has quickly become the most popular specialty burger.

But it doesn’t stop there. There’s a Blueberry Cardamom Pie Shake that’s mixed and topped with fresh baked pie crust from neighbor Chhaya Cafe. There’s also a “lighter” milkshake, the Reanimator Red Eye, made with Little Baby’s non-dairy ice cream and Reanimator Coffee. The lighter menu continues with a Seared Ahi Salad and a Vegan Pulled Portobello Sandwich as well.
