Instagram Contest: Win a La Tour Burger

April 22, 2019

One of the newest restaurants to start using local Kunoa beef in their burgers is La Tour Café. To celebrate, we are teaming up for an Instagram contest this week. Head over to La Tour’s Instagram for details on how to enter, and read on to learn more about this fast-casual favorite.

La Tour Café specializes in European-inspired cuisine, including sandwiches, burgers and flatbread pizzas, as well as fresh baked artisan breads, colorful French macarons and buttery kouign amann pastries. The first location opened in 2011 at Iwilei, and now there are five locations in O’ahu.

Ingredients are important to La Tour, and they work hard to source high quality meats and cheeses and local produce. They also cater to different dietary styles, including vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and ketogenic. The restaurants are now using Kunoa beef to make Smash Burgers — a combo of short rib, brisket, and chuck pressed on the griddle to 1/2-inch thick. This ups the flavor profile with a highly caramelized crust. 

In short, the food is fresh, delicious, and fast. Another thing we love about La Tour is their #LaTourGivesBack program. Each quarter, they partner with a local non-profit organization to create a special. For every special ordered, they donate a portion of the proceeds to the non-profit. This quarter they are serving a Buffalo chicken salad to raise money for the Fur Angel Foundation, a local non-profit that rescues underprivileged and unwanted dogs and helps them find forever homes.

We hope you’ll stop in and try La Tour soon. In the meantime, be sure to enter the Instagram contest before it ends Sunday 4/28 at 5pm HST. One random winner will receive a free La Tour Burger and Kunoa hat. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday 4/29.
