What a shame. We had such high hopes for this burger and had been dying to check out Milk Bar for ages - their Insta game has always been on point, but this food was just not up to par. The smashed beef patty was sadly dry and lacking flavour. The sticky maple rainbow beef was a little crispy but chewy, and overpoweringly sweet. Also, the bun was nothing special, soft but a tad dry. Whilst there was creaminess from the aioli and slaw, there was no taste of either the bulgogi or kimchi to be found. This made the burger lack the necessary spice/heat to balance the almost sickly sweet maple flavour. The crispy onion and lettuce were also MIA, again lost to the overpowering maple flavour. Unfortunately, it was a burger of one flavour profile which significantly lacked any balance or texture. Onto the chips. Whilst they were super crispy, they were lacking any potato in the middle and were very oily, some even floppy. However, the aioli with the chips was an unexpected delight - free of charge and delicious! Fortunately, the service was very friendly. We were advised that they were only doing Take Away orders as they were finishing up their lunch service, but then they kindly suggested that we sit at one of their outside tables so we could enjoy the meal fresh whilst they closed up.
