Having gone to the Burger Project at Southbank, readers would know that I wasn't overly impressed by the burgers there, but seeing as another one opened within 5 minutes of my work, I decided it would be worth a second try. Wanting to peruse the menu online, I found that they had facilities to preorder online and pickup. Those who are familiar with my blog will know that I am easily won over by convenience and efficiency, so naturally I ordered online.
I appreciated the broad range of burgers on the menu (with full options when it comes to alterations), and also liked that they also had a selection of "feasts" for large orders at a discount.
So I put my order through for a 11.45am pickup, to avoid the lunch rush.
Arriving just before my order was ready, there was a small buildup of people who had come to get lunch.
Having pre ordered though, I was able to avoid the queue and just await my name to be called, during which, I took some time to appreciate some of the interior decoration.
Service was friendly, but still a little chaotic as the store had only been open for less than a week, but our order was still ready right on 11.45am, and we quickly took it back up to the office.
Between the two of us, we shared a Chicken Katsu Burger with Bacon, and a Double Burger along with a side of chips each.
The chicken katsu was a little squished by the time it got back, and wasn't very photogenic. Nevertheless, the chicken thigh fillet was one of the crunchiest I've had in a burger, despite the sauce. It was well seasoned and juicy, though I would have preferred the texture of breast fillet more than thigh fillet. Of interest, the burger came with both chopped up lettuce inside as well as the big lettuce leaf you can see in the picture, both were very fresh.
The double we had didn't get squished and as such was far more camera-ready. Both patties were deliciously crumbly and still pink on the inside. The cheese glued it together well and the salad was fresh. The only improvement I would have suggested was the bun, which was a little more sugary than I would have preferred.
As for my sides, I had the chips with special sauce and some strawberry soda. The chips were amazingly crispy and crunchy to the last piece. The sauce was a combination of cream, bacon and chives, which proved to be quite tasty. I also quite enjoyed the soda which had real strawberry pieces in it.
Price Range: $15 - $25pp
