East Fargo, MN (aka Moorhead) – In a quirky town that is known for its social awkwardness, it’s fitting that this is the backdrop for a story to warm your heart and satisfy your appetite for all things good.

Executive Chef Ethan Ellis, who’s had Assburger’s Syndrome his entire life, is trying to help raise awareness about this misunderstood autistic disorder.

Chef Ellis, who heads the staff at the formerly defunct TreeTop Restaurant and Lounge, said the idea came to him while he was recently obsessing on a South Park episode about the Assburger Syndrome. “Why not sell Assburgers to help educate people about the Assburger Syndrome?”, he thought to himself. So, that is exactly what he decided to do.

“Now, by using an iPad touch-screen menu and without ever having to talk to anyone, customers can order their Assburgers with or without cheese and whatever extras they want. At the same time, they can also learn various facts about Assburger’s Syndrome” he explained.

The impressive compilation of trivia factoids that Chef Ellis has gathered range from: It was Austrian physician Dr. Hans Assburger back in 1944 who first studied children with the characteristic symptoms of Assburger’s Syndrome, to: Pointing out that the popular internet gathering spot for people such as Chef Ellis who have Assburger’s Syndrome is WrongPlanet.Net.

So, the next time you’re looking for a nice quiet place to have a bite and learn a bit, consider having an Assburger, just the way you want it, high atop the formerly defunct TreeTop Restaurant and Lounge in vibrant downtown East Fargo.
