In Chang's food journal, The Lucky Peach, he called the burger the worst in the world.

"You know who f**ks up burgers more than anyone else in the world? Australians. Australia has no idea what a burger is. They put a fried egg on their burger. They put canned beetroot on it, like a wedge of it. I am not joking you. This is how they eat their burger," he wrote.

Burger question 2: Are eggs really that egg-cellent?

This poll ended on 28 July 2015.

Say no to eggs? The yolk's on you, eggs make better everything we do!

I do not like a bun with greens and eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam I am!

Eggs might be rotten, eggs might be good, but these rhymes you do are ... really just awful. Please stop.

"Australians: I love your country and I love your food, even if your burgers are mostly terrible," said Chang.

He also slammed the Aussie classic on his Instagram account. 


"This is what all the fuss is about in Australia...the salad burger. I'm talking about practice and you wanna talk about beets & fried egg. You cannot be serious (pretty sure I'm gonna get beaten up on my next visit)," he wrote.
