A controversial burger has emerged in Melbourne, sold at a pop-up bar named after notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.

“The Patron burger” – sold at Prahran burger bar Pablo Escoburgers – is topped with a line of white powder (garlic flour garnish) and a rolled up, fake $100 note.

Escobar led the Colombian cartel that supplied most of the world’s cocaine in the late 1980s.
