disclaimer: this review was written by my girlfriend... It was no samari as the burger name suggests although I did opt for normal aioli rather than the original wasabi mayonnaise missing the Asian spice that may have given this burger the edge it needed. But whether the addition of wasabi increased the nobility of the burger would be forever unanswered as I would not go out of my way to order again. Brioche is a favourite of mine, so imagine my delight as I encountered the bun for this delight to be destroyed by the dryness of the bun. Hence, my mouth was seeking the moisture of the aioli, which was there but not really in ample supply. The protein: the panko crumb poultry, as always, was the star of the show. With a lovely crisp crumb, the chicken almost made me forgive the dryness of my beloved brioche. However, nothing could forgive the 'asian' slaw. It was nothing special and nothing uniquely asian as the title promised. It was Hap-hazard vegetables simply chucked on the burger for the sake of having vegetables on the bun. Overall my rating would be 3.7/5. I would re-order the chicken purely as a chicken samari sword (kebab stick) but the samari burger would not make it onto my plate again.
