Was over at Haji Lane this afternoon for a meeting and was introduced to BERGS gourmet burgers by Eunice! I was thrilled that this joint offers 2 vegetarian selections in their meaty/seafood menu.
I had “GOOD FALLA” falafel burger (small portion which was so huge) $11.50 and topped up $4 for a side fries (VERY YUMMY and FAT) and a cup of lemonade. Sadly they do not offer hot beverages for the set. The other vegetarian option was “KRAKATOA” tofu burger with spicy satay sauce, coriander pesto, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cucumber and aioli.
The falafel patty was slightly crispy on the outside but very mushy inside. It was served with lemon yoghurt, avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion, chilli and aioli. (Aioli is traditionally made of garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and egg yolks.) Which makes this joint a non-vegan place to visit unless you request to omit the sauces.
I found that the mushiness of the falafel lacked texture and the taste was overwhelmed by the strong garlicky sauce. For that price, it was value for money for the size of the burger but not for the quality! In the future, I might just pass by to grab their fries to munch on if I am near the area.
