Tiger Burger: Korean fusion brought by a couple joining the best of both of their backgrounds. Tucked in the midst of the Grey Lynn shops, it’s great to finally have a fast food option that caters for people to sit in. It’s frustrating when you want to try all the yummy takeaways but live too far away to take it all the way home to then eat it cold!
The menu is short and sweet! 4x burgers, a weekly special and a few sides.
This is probably the 1st time in a while I haven’t been able to finish my burger whilst snacking on the chips. Although I love the concept of the burgers and flavours, as per the menu says “all patties served medium rare, unless otherwise requested”. Sadly my patty was not MR, which meant getting to the end of the burger it left a rather dry taste in my mouth – hence why I couldn’t quite finish my burger. What is great about the burger is the bun – which sounds odd, but the texture is great. It really holds its weight with the amount of sauce in the burger – it doesn’t fall apart in your hands or become soggy which is a huge tick in my books!
Who doesn’t love a Fried Chicken Burger! – Awesomely huge, although could do with just that bit more sauce. The Kimchi Fries were great value for money, eye appealing and super crispy which stopped the chips from going soggy even under the sauce and toppings. My only qualm would be that I was expecting fatter chips – I am just biased I can’t help it I am just not a skinny chip person.
The food is served as efficiently as if ordering takeout but in this case you can enjoy a nice sit down with a cold beer on the side.
Value for Money: Very Good
