Originally since it was Wednesday, I wanted to take advantage of Whopper Wednesday and get a Whopper.
However, as I pulled near the drive-thru window, the big huge advertisement for the BK Mushroom & Swiss Steakhouse Burger caught my eye and it was too enticing to pass up.
So I gave up the $1.49 Whopper and splurged on the much more $$$ Steakhouse.
I could’ve behaved and had the burger by itself. But no, I had to get the “Value Meal”.
Good thing they had good fries. Having worked at a BK before, I totally knew how ghastly the fries would’ve been if they have used old oil. These were a nice pale golden color, tasted fresh, with no hint of old oil. I’m usually partial to McD’s fries but these were seriously not bad.
Even before I opened the wrap I could smell the “flame-broiled”ness.
However, I must say, they did a pretty bad job on assembly. They could’ve used a bigger bun ie. the Whopper bun but they had to use the Whopper Jr. bun. Honestly, it doesn’t take that much effort to make a burger look presentable. Whoever assembled must really not care.
This is probably false advertising at its best…the poster burger was probably twice the size of this one proportionally. But that wasn’t unexpected was it?
So tastewise, I probably shouldn’t try to guess how much sodium is in this thing. The patty was very very good and flavorful.
Especially with the crispy onion flakes and the swiss cheese. Kinda disappointed they use canned mushrooms though.
Weird thing, towards the middle of the burger there’s a BBQ-y ketchup thing going on. I thought that tasted really weird and took away from the mushroom-&-swiss-goodness. If I do get this again, I’ll ask for no ketchup.
Honestly, I can’t really discern the difference between this supposed “100% Angus Beef” and regular beef. It looks like regular Whopper beef to me.
And by now, it was getting pretty salty.
I’m not sure how worth $8 this burger is. I can probably get better quality stuff at Red Robin or White Spot. But I don’t regret this though.
