Dissecting the Burger

Onions, 2 beef patties, good amount of rendang sauce (more dripped to the plate and packaging).

And then nothing else on the bottom. A very simple burger.

Reviewing the Burger

Rendang is sweet, and slightly nutty – almost like a combination of satay and rendang sauce. Mildy spicy. Tastes great in combination with the beef patty and onions. In fact, pairing with the beef brings out more of the nutty flavour, and I’m not even sure why. It is also lightly spicy, with a spiciness that doesn’t hit immediately, but instead lingers and isn’t spicy enough to sweat.

Of course, this isn’t authentic, but this is delicious.

Onion rings, as with many fast food items are hit and miss in terms of quality. Sometimes you get a crispy outer layer that is perfect, sometimes you don’t. I seemed to have gotten a below average batch, which is made worse by having it take away.

Pairing the onion rings with Burger King’s chilli sauce, which I found to be plasticky and artificial, does not taste good at all. I quickly opted for the remaining rendang sauce instead.

On a side note, McDonald’s Singapore pretty much has the best sauces for fast food restaurants in Singapore with their curry sauce, chilli garilc sauce that there is almost no comparison.

Taro turnover is a bit on the sweeter side, and I felt that more yam flavour would be appreciated. But overall, for S$1, it is okay.
