After a hospital visit, which unless you are visiting a mother and newborn are always unsettling, I was walking back through the city and passed Mos Burger. I had absolutely no intention of burgering, and I was in fact making a beeline for a certain green tea iced beverage, however, after a quick check of reviews, I walked back and succumbed.
Mos Burger is the second largest Burger chain in Japan, second only to McDonald’s, and is popular throughout Asia, and its only Australian outlets are in Brisbane. The internet was raving about the chicken teriyaki burger, but the rule is to sample the cheeseburger as the yardstick – if one is to have an exotic, non-burgery burger then it’s not really a fair burger assessment.
The cheeseburger does not bode well when I have to scrape off about half a pound of diced, raw onion. The cheese sits unmelted on the apparently wagyu pattie. There is no pickle or mustard. I bite in. Not for me. The pattie has a seasoning I don’t care for, kind of like old sausage roll seasoning. There is no char or smoke (my two prized burger qualities) and I contemplate not eating it. I eat it though as I hate wasting food. It is not dry inside, which is good. The chips would be decent if they were hotter.
Service at Mos Burger is friendly and polite and I did enjoy the iced tea that came with the meal, but sadly their cheeseburger was nothing to swoon over
