Sinful? Or Sinfully delicious?

The new "Ghost Burger" at Chicago's Kuma's Corner -- a 10 ounce goat and beef patty made with a red wine reduction and topped with an unconsecrated Communion wafer -- has got a lot of people talking.

Kuma's is known for naming burgers after heavy metal bands, and restaurant officials said this creation is named after a metal band from Sweden called "Ghost B.C."

"In the spirit of our undying reverence for the lord and all things holy, we give you the Ghost which we think is a fitting tribute to the supreme blasphemous activities carried out by the band itself," reads a post on the joint's Facebook page.

A restaurant official admitted to the Chicago Tribune that some people have expressed concern about the burger.

"The thing with this is, the communion wafer is unconsecrated, so until that happens, it's really just a cracker," Director of Operations Luke Tobias told the Tribune.

The burger is available at Kuma's Corner, on the 2900 block of West Belmont Avenue, in the city's Avondale neighborhood.
