Toronto, March 7 (UITV)- A chicken burger has been named after Canada’s Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan by a café. The Cannibal café located in downtown Vancouver called the burger the “Minister of National Deliciousness”.

45-year-old Sajjan, who was in November named Canada’s minister of national defence in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s 30-member Liberal cabinet, stopped by a downtown Vancouver eatery to sample the burger named in his honour.

The burger, which includes a tandoori-spiced patty smothered in butter chicken sauce, was features as February’s burger of the month. However, as soon as dinner got fascinated by the name, the restaurant decided to keep the item permanently on the menu.

Sajjan, who represents the Vancouver-South, was in town last week for the Liberal government’s first ministers meeting, but made time to visit The Cannibal café and try out his namesake burger ‘The Minister of National Deliciousness’.

“National Deliciousness indeed! Tried my namesake burger at #Vancouver’s @TheCannibalcafe and was not disappointed,” tweeted Sajjan, who was originally born in India and then moved to Canada when he was five.

The chicken burger also features a tandoori-spiced patty doused in butter chicken sauce and pressed yogurt with mint, cilantro and cucumbers.

Sajjan, who called the experience “very humbling”, also shook hands with the chef behind the burger, Zai Kitagawa, and signed off on a chalkboard featuring a drawing of him in sunglasses.
