By hit­ting the per­fect bal­ance of pro­tein and en­ergy-boost­ing ex­tras, Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK)’S Kiwi founders suc­ceeded in in­tro­duc­ing Bri­tish taste buds to some­thing slightly more re­fined – not to men­tion sig­nif­i­cantly more sus­tain­ing – than your typ­i­cal late-night burger van.

The New Zealan­ders sought to recre­ate the pat­ties reared on the windswept, cat­tle-friendly wilds of home. And while its beef­burg­ers more than hold their own, it’s GBK’S Ca­jun Blue chicken burger that re­ally sets the brand apart, with a shirt­sleeves-swelling 40g of pro­tein per serv­ing. Not only will this feed hun­gry mus­cle fi­bres af­ter your hard­est train­ing day, but the anti-in­flam­ma­tory cap­saicin found in the jalapeños works to soothe post­work­out aches so that you can hit the gym again to­mor­row.

While all of that is go­ing on, the abun­dant thi­amin found in the pineap­ple su­per­charges car­bo­hy­drate me­tab­o­lism, ramp­ing up en­ergy lev­els to keep you fight­ing fit. Best of all, it’s topped with a healthy, me­tab­o­lism-spik­ing dol­lop of sriracha, just be­cause. Proof, at last, that chicken doesn’t have to be cheeky.
