BurgeRoom, Top of the class

Posted:
 

At BR, they’re raising the bar, with innovations such as the chilli fish, lobster, and foie gras burgers. Though we were tempted, to keep things fair we went for the classic beef burger ($48) with tomato, lettuce and home-made Thousand Island. Before we’d even had a bite, it had already scored heavily for its slick packaging.

What our tasters said: “It’s huge!... Really big and fresh... It’s got the appearance and thickness of a seriously good-looking burger... A nostalgically American classic taste... The bun doesn’t disintegrate like with some big burgers... Onions would have been welcome... The creamy Thousand Island is perfection... It’s just a really great classic American burger, which is one of the hardest things to get right.”

Meat: 10/10
Bun: 9/10
Toppings: 9/10
Value: 8/10
Overall: 9/10  Supremely satisfying and brimming with all the right flavours, BurgeRoom proves that, above all, a great burger is about quality ingredients, carefully prepared. Sounds easy when we put it like that...
