Concha-Burger: The Ultimate Mexican-American Food Mashup

The burger, shake, and fries are enduring icons of American cuisine. This greasy, calorie-laden food is the stuff of American folklore. Integral to the iconography of the U.S. of A., burgers are the perfect meal anytime of day, any day. But a group of visionaries, added a twist to the American classic to switch it up a little —for the better.

In a time of cultural hybridization, the blending of elements from different cultures, an All-American burger, paired with the quintessentially Mexican pan dulce resulted in the cultural hybrid of dreams. I give you: the concha burger.

If you, like us, love a good pan dulce as much as you love a juicy burger, Mexican food pop up, El Norte, has something to say to you; ¿Por qué no los dos?

El Norte Kitchen, a Mexican food pop up that specializes in “Norteño” food —food typical of the northern region of Mexico— came up with a sweet and savory creation, that’s the stuff of Mexican-American dreams. Replacing the burger buns for a concha, this new sandwich is a sweet and savory delight that will satisfy both your cravings.

Run by a Latinx family, El Norte’s food has Sonoran roots with an Arizonan touch.

El Norte Kitchen is a Pop-Up Restaurant run by the Allen Family. The pop up creates unique Mexican inspired dining experiences in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. The Latinx family lived in Tucson, Arizona for years, which is why their food is influenced by the culinary delights they tried in their many travels to the southwestern city.
