|Parade Cafe - a fine looking burger|
This excitement escalated when the burger arrived. As you can see from the picture it was an awesome looking burger - well constructed on a nice looking sesame seed bun. Now I dont believe in egg so this was quickly removed from the burger. The burger had mayo and a bbq sauce, along with some salad leaves. All looking good so far...and then I attempted to eat it.
|Parade Cafe - burger opened up for analysis|
It's a cut in half and eat burger as a result of its size; and thats ok with me. Unfortunately looks deceived and I was immediately disappointed as I took a bite. The bun, instead of being soft with a bit of crunch was pretty hard and dry - i.e. stale. The meat patty was solid as lacked moistness and flavour. The bbq sauce and the mayo were all that gave it any liquidity - i even slathered some of that tomato sauce onto the burger in an effort to make it more palatable. Perhaps the egg yolk may have provided some more moistness but i didn't see the point at that stage. Again, the salad leaves didn't add value and i cant recall the fried onions at all. Were they even on there?
Overall, a good looking burger that just did not stack up to the taste test. I doubt whether i will be trying that burger again - 3/10.
