After all the disappointment with McDonald’s new menu items, can Burger King renew our faith in fast food joints?
They have launched their limited edition mentaiko burgers to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year. This includes the Salmon Mentaiko Burger (S$5.50/a la carte, S$6.90/meal) and Mentaiko Double Chick’n Crisp (S$5.50/a la carte, S$6.90/meal).
The Salmon Mentaiko Burger came with a deep-fried salmon fillet from Hokkaido between two sesame buns, and drizzled with their homemade mentaiko mayo.
I was slightly taken aback by how fishy the burger tasted, as I expected the fish to be milder like McDonald’s Fillet-o-Fish.
Thinking the mentaiko mayo might do the burger justice, I swiped a bit off my burger to try on its own. Sadly, it didn’t have the briny flavour that we all love. The tangy and savoury mayonnaise was too overpowering for me.
Hoping the mentaiko sauce would taste better with chicken, I tried their Mentaiko Double Chick’n Crisp Burger. This came with two crispy chicken patties drizzled with mentaiko mayo. However, they were a tad stingy with the unique dressing, making it taste like a normal chicken burger.
Just for Chinese New Year, Burger King also introduced their Four-Tune Box (S$8.80), which includes onion rings, fries, nuggets and golden chicken tots.
If you were looking forward to the mentaiko burgers, this might be a huge disappointment for you. It’s probably better to stick to Burger King’s traditional burgers.
