Messi pays homage in Ibiza by trying a dish with his name on it
The Argentine superstar opted to try the hamburger named after him, the ‘Messi Burger’, that was born from his collaboration with the Hard Rock Café.
The 2021-22 season ended, giving way to some much-needed vacations, which are being enjoyed by the majority of footballers who have their future tied up for next season. One such player is Lionel Messi, who will continue to wear the Paris Saint Germain jersey for the second season.
But, the Argentine ace misses Spain, and that is why he has taken advantage of the summer period to visit it, doing so in Ibiza, where he is enjoying a few days with his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, and their children. This is an opportunity that has also led him to be in the audience at the Ushuaia Festival, where he was with his former teammates, Cesc Fábregas and Luis Suárez, and their respective partners.
But on the Balearic island not only did the famous number 10 have time to party and rest, but he has also allowed himself the chance to taste a food dish with his name on it, something he then shared through his social media account. The name says it all: ‘Messi Burger’.
Messi collaboration with Hard Rock
Far from opting for a more sophisticated, Michelin-star restaurant, the former Barça player decided to dedicate one of his meals to his latest collaboration with Hard Rock Café, a hamburger that has all the Argentinian’s favorite ingredients.
The ‘Messi Burger’ is a reissue of the Hard Rock Café Steak Burger. It is made up of two discs of high-quality minced meat, seasoned and braised, with provolone cheese, sliced Spanish chorizo, caramelized onion red sauce, tomato, romaine lettuce, a smoked sauce and another spicy one.
All of this is served on a toasted brioche bread and accompanied by a cup of crisps. In addition, you have the option of topping it off with a fried egg, just as Messi himself has chosen on this occasion. Just as he has left defenders and goalkeepers with egg on their face, he was readying himself for a similar fate.
