Vietnamese restaurant introduces Coronaburger

A Vietnamese restaurant is selling a burger served in a bun that looks like the deadly microscopic coronavirus, according to the South China Morning Post.

Chef Hoang Tung said he started serving his burger on a crown-shaped bun resembling the virus to take the fear out of the pandemic that has infected nearly a half-million people worldwide. The bun is dyed with green tea.

“We have this joke that if you are scared of something, you should eat it,” Tung said from his eatery in Hanoi.

Tung’s Pizza Home restaurant reportedly sells 50 corona-inspired burgers a day in the country that has reported 153 cases of coronavirus infection. There have been no known fatalities, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Tung hopes the unusual burger brings "joy to others during this pandemic.”

Hanoi’s restaurants have closed down to prevent the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus, but the Coronaburger can still be ordered for take-out.
