Junghee is frugal and amazed by “eating-out” culture in this country. Somehow she begins busy with work and talk s*i* with her newly habitualized words. The green comes and goes ~ Let’s spend it.
A restaurant review by SACurrent about Five Guys Burger caught my eyes few months ago. “Oh~yeaH” ……..bad idea. According to my knowledge, grind meat burger easily can have 400 cal. at minimum. Remember Junghee! your calories intake for a meal is less than 500. I ordered Light Burger that comes with one patty and my choice of toppings. I love cheese but decided not for this time due to indescribable balance between meat and cheese. The stink of cheese ( where is this originated anyway?) would prevent my tongue to appreciate juice from the meat which was what they are known for.
Hi~~~eeeee. Can I have a light burger with grilled mushroom, onion and green pepper..tomato and letters…..aaaaand jalapeno.
ummm….Let me get regular fries, too. (with that…It was over my lunch budget, but why not? I was hungry)
On 11: 50am, the place was crowded. I had five orders in front of me which took 5 minute till my turn. An order for a minute was not bad. I detected some vinegar sauce bottles, ketchup and BBQ SAUSE~~hmm. They also had self served shelled peanuts in two boxes full and was delicious, fresh and roasty. I waited two minutes for my about to be broken dream burger and fries.
Before I get into the taste, I would like to point out their method of cooking the half-inches thick patty. On a huge flat griddle, a cook put about fifteens at the same time (good..it’s lunch time and praising the fast past). And the cook started pressing the small poor guys down really really hard. The meat left five inches diameter of protein on the griddle. Well….honey (the protein)….you are supposed not to live like that and not to leave those burnt. I just lost my important element there. . . bomber. The burnt was the reason for no mayo and no cheese and would keep the patty warm longer. (-65/100)
I got BBQ sauce on a side-friendly customer service but didn’t want to talk about the plain brown viscous liquid. Fries….yeah the fries…..thick string cut with the skin on. I shredded a piece with my teeth. There was a extremely high possibility that the piece absorbed a tsp or two of peanut oil. The waxed paper cup container for the fries facilitated sogginess (super). If I was getting the string, I would expect crispness. Where are you Ruby’s or even McDonald~~~?!!!! It went to trash. (-20/100)
I ended up obtaining my daily fat requirement from the peanut oil and mayo which I did not ask for my burger. Chunky diced cut white onion broke the entire balance. I could only feel the dried-out rounded patty parts. Grilled mushroom was canned which could tell by the way it had been cut and the taste of course. (-15/100)
Their buns? You could not say it was made by carefully selected bakeries if buns have sesame seeds on the top. The taste of their so proudly advertised buns did not meet my expectation. (you are going down~~~)
In sum, FGBF receives (-100/100) which means ZERO~ ulala. Do I have any suggestion for improvement, or am I going to try different FGBF’s burger? I have my grieve on their business strategies. According to my golden rules, #1 (failed due to the mushroom), #2,3 & 4 (failed due to their meat patty cooking method and b*a* onion) which means #5 and #6 automatically dropped.
I have no images but ENJOY~~~(>0<)
