Ed Sheeran has found his new favourite eatery right here in Otago.

Turns out the global superstar loves Queenstown's iconic Fergburger.

Fergburger is famous for it's gourmet burgers and people wait in lines out the door to get their turn to try them.

The Fergburger crew made a trip to Dunedin today to personally deliver Fergburgers to Sheeran and his team.

An impressed Sheeran shared a photo to his Instagram story, saying the burger he had was "by far the best burger in the world".

Sheeran previously visited the resort town in 2016 during his year-long hiatus from his music career.

The singer-songwiter shared on Instagram, two years ago, that he was taking time off from both his busy career and social media after the success of his sophomore album X.

Comments

Some investigative journalism was called for here: did they cook the burger in Queenstown and bring it over? Did they find somewhere to make a bespoke burger for him here? In either case, the burger is not going to be the same as Jo punter would get from the shop.
