Not so Classic Burger…

Classic Burger Joint Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

It’s a new branch and it was just on our left in Zouk Mkayel, however we were on the wrong side of the highway, and a detour from inside Kaslik away…

It’s also a new menu, new add-ons on the already successful list of Classic Burger’s items

The joint was absolutely packed… It’s very small yet very welcoming… There was a small crowd just outside as we were making our way in… Luckily, some people were just leaving so we were almost immediately seated.

… And immediately served… with a rather disappointing appetizers, now don’t get me wrong, they tasted good, however, this is the opening of a new branch, you know what I mean ? It should have been something more interesting than cheese fries and Jalapenos & Fried Onion rings, no matter how good they were…

This was followed by the Classic Platter, the crispy fish burger, the protein bowl and the house gravy chicken

The Classic platter was very interesting to look at and honestly triggers drooling… I mean, it’s a double open faced served patties with melted American cheese and a fried egg on top, at this point… you pretty much don’t see the iceberg and the pickles underneath the meat… the classic sauce was and still is a success with this dish… the fries were amazing… the Burger itself ? Well… a classic… personally, I would have served some crispy bacon on top of the egg and market it as a brunch item… it misses truly the crunchiness of the bacon…

The Crispy Fish Burger was a total surprise to me, voyez vous, I don’t like fish burgers, never had, they tend to be oily… soggy… and blank in taste… I almost didn’t want to taste it… How glad I was that I did. First of all it was PERFECTLY fried, not soggy, no oily, very crispy… it apparently is made from a fancy fish filet coming for the very very far away New Zealand, I wasn’t listening honestly to the explanation of the very capable and professional Yolla… I was experiencing a good, tasty, crispy generous piece of fried fish filet in a burger… the only issue? Well I thought they should add a little more of that delicious tartar sauce… that’s it…

Coach Chicho was attacking the protein bowl, and I wasn’t surprised, I knew he would be interested in that item because it probably fits his protein diet, he is very adamant on protecting his 6 packs… Anyways, it’s a creative dish addressing a specific audience… no fries here… no buns… just a juicy beef patty on a bed of greens… while I totally get the concept, I personally wouldn’t come to Classic Burger to order that meal, it’s good, mind you, but it’s just not as appealing (to me) as the other goodness they serve.

The House Gravy Chicken on the other hand was a total Yumm… I love grilled chicken, I love gravy, I love mustard sauce, I love sautéed mushrooms… and that burger brought them all together… my favorite of the bunch. Each bite was a perfect combination of those flavors…

All in all? Goooood, The secret of success of Classic Burger is probably its simplicity in delivering a straightforward goody packed burger while keeping a descent level of diversification… the quality and freshness of his ingredients goes as well a long way in making him a destination of choice…
