And what better location for it than the West Bank, Palestine?
The themed restaurant, “Salta Burger,” was opened some time in the summer of 2014. It was based in Ramallah, where hunger strikers are currently protesting the conditions of Israeli prisons.

Upon executing further research, I have a lead on a Krusty Krab road in Galway, Ireland. This could easily be a Google user prank, but hey, who knows? There could possibly be an Irish seaside-pub serving up the secret Krabby Patty formula. Being that the Wedding Therapist and I will be visiting Ireland in August, there may be only one way to find out…
Here’s a video featuring Salta Burger, check it out:
