Burger fans in Sabah must try at least one of the eight burgers in the World Burger Tour menu of the Hard Rock Cafe Kota Kinabalu. You just don’t want to miss it, considering they will only be serving the menu for two months from now until July 31.
We (the so-called food tasters) were given eight World Burgers to sample today. Prior to that, we were told that one would have to visit the Hard Rock Cafe’s at the respective countries for such a treat. So we were feeling quite lucky.
The World Burger Tour offerings at the Hard Rock Cafe Kota Kinabalu were: Corned Beef Hash Burger (Manchester, England); Greek Burger (Athens, Greece); Hollywood Burger (Los Angeles, United States); Java Lava Burger (Seattle, United States); Korean Kimchi Burger (Busan, Korea); Satay Burger (Singapore); Tandoori Chicken Burger (Mumbai, India); and Tropical Burger (Key West, United States). My personal favorite was the Kimchi Burger (photo above) which has that acidic feel to it, sweet and sour at the same time and brought out that special grilled taste of the beef. Really thought I went up to heaven with that one.Now who doesn’t love Tandoori Chicken? Unfortunately, I didn’t get to sample this one because apparently, the taste was so divine and there were only four cuts of it. This burger uses dark meat chicken patty that has been seasoned with aromatic spices and fresh herbs, topped with mint mayonnaise and served with a side of cucumber. Certified Angus Beef patty topped with corned beef hash, cheddar cheese crumbles, sliced beetroot and A1 sauce were used to make this delectable piece that soon disappeared into our mouths. Check out the yummy Angus Beef patty topped with Brie cheese, caramelised shallots and a tomato slice in the Greek Burger. A goat cheese burger in paradise, made with grilled pineapple jalapeno mango salsa, bacon and arugula on a brioche bun. Perked up with an espresso rub and topped with melted cheddar, bacon, jalapeno lava sauce, java onions, arugula and sliced tomato, topped with a deep friend jalapeno and perfected with seasoned fries and jalapeno lava dipping sauce.
