I was so disappointed with this burger as it had been recommended by a carnist so I was expecting big things in terms of flavour! In reality it was a soggy and pretty flavourless excuse of a meal, however the bread was great so if I went back, I’d just grab some fresh bread and add my homemade peanut butter as a snack or on-the-go meal.
It wasn’t particularly well presented and fell apart whilst I ate it (the copious amounts of ketchup that I slathered on it in an attempt to add some extra flavour may have also contributed to that). Happiness came in at a 3 because we also waited FOREVER! So not a great dining experience! Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t eat again!
NB: The tofu burger as per the menu is vegetarian, order without the mayo to make it vegan.
So I found a place in Laos that unknowingly decided to compete with The Green Grill coming at me with a beetroot bun and it wasn’t a bad effort at all! It was pretty great; a well-seasoned chickpea and corn patty full of flavour and moisture, delicious caramelised onions and American mustard which complimented each other really well.
The downside was the filling was a bit meagre - I could have eaten another one afterwards which knocked down the happiness score! Salad and well-cooked chips were a nice inclusion but it was still a bit pricey for Laos - another small minus. I would’ve liked to have seen a bit more texture as the whole burger was quite soft and squishy which affected the overall tastiness.
It’s a pretty sexy burger but it’s got nothing when you compare the impressiveness of The Green Grill’s Red Devil! Definitely worth a visit if you’re not on a strict budget.
Note: order without cheese to make it vegan!
