We have always associated burgers with fast food. Burgers have undoubtedly remained a staple in the American diet, hence we know and love them as such. Yet, we Indians have an innate way of moulding things according to our own tastes; fusion, as we call it, is something we are truly fond of.

We look for a desi kick in everything - a familiar burst of flavours so good they can whisk us away to an entirely different world. Hence we have been waiting for desi versions of our favourite burgers and it seems that our wishes have finally been granted. Box-O-Burger in Kanpur is a burger joint known for its delicious desi version of burgers.

Apna wala Box-O-Burger

While we've known and loved burgers to be a meaty juicy goodness, Box-O-Burger serves some weirdly familiar flavours packed between breads. The burgers are no less than flavour bombs and the fun part is that they're a hundred percent vegetarian!

From aloo kachalu burger to a paneer-e-makhani burger, there isn't a burger here that follows the plain-Jane American palate.

We absolutely love the the Apna Wala Burger, Roohani Burger, the Rajma Singh Burger, Achari Mushroom Burger, Cheesy Burger Bomb and Pizza wala Burger!

To-die-for snacks

The Box-O-Burger doesn't just serve a select range of desi and familiar burgers, they also serve a delicious variety of snacks that are sure to please the fusion lover in you.

From cheesy garlic breads to burger-pizza, potato tornado, shakes, smoothies, sandwiches and more, their selection will please the junk-food lover within you! We would a hundred percent recommend the cheesy tikka fries, zhannat lehsuni fries, apni wali garlic bread, tandoori aloo chakri and the Punjabi tadka maggi. Pair these with the kiwi mojito, zara hatke pink mojito, chocolate banana or mango masti shake and have yourself a delightful desi meal.

Knock Knock

Box-O-Burger in Kanpur is a great option for those who love burgers as well as the familiar traditional flavours. The burgers are vegetarian, delicious and quite reasonable, hence they make for the perfect snack or even a full meal. Get yourself a desi burger and enjoy an avalanche of flavours like never before.
