Devil Burger, which was relatively empty at 5.30pm (this was in stark contrast to FergBurger down the road where there was a queue). It was also a chance for me to review a burger outside of Wellington (I knew I had called it BurgerNZ for a reason!!)
I went for the Yankee Devil as this was the closest i could get to a cheeseburger. The basic devil burger comes with their own Devil Relish, which i wasn't too keen on sampling. The Yankee Devil came with cheese, pickles, fancy lettuce, red onion, tomato, aioli and tomato relish. I ordered the regular size for $12.50. (Large was $14.50 but looked significantly larger).
When the burger arrived it looked ready for the ball. Well wrapped, the onion and mayo offering a glimpse out the front end. Unfortunately it was all window dressing. Check out the opened burger. The onion and the mayo were planted in a position of prominence but the rest of the burger was neglected. They were joined by a solitary slice of tomato and enough lettuce to hide the pattie and the cheese. At least they were consistent. A lone gherkin slice was perched on the onion.
The burger, overall, barely squeaked past average. My score of six was largely in support of the initial presentation, a solid bun, and an alright pattie. I would expect more from a place that specialises in burgers. There is a reason this place is relatively empty, whereas Fergburger was packed!!
