Good value Western fast food

Visited Burger King's branch on Phạm Hồng Thái street next to New World Hotel today, and as it is the week before Christmas there was a Christmas tree next to the checkout and some decorations in the store to bring a bit of Christmas to Ho Chi Minh City.

I decided to go along with the theme and ordered a Christmas Whopper value meal, which is a Whopper with a different dressing. I paid a total of 133,000đ for my Christmas Whopper with cheese, french fries and a bottle of Dasani water. The bottle of water instead of a soft drink is my way of tricking myself that the meal suddenly got a lot healthier.

The burger was just as I would expect it to be, and even though I have heard people say that the burger buns are terrible in Vietnam, I could not notice any difference to a normal Whopper in Western countries. The burger patty, bun and veggies were all very nice and had that distinct Burger King taste which at least I have come to like. The honey mustard dressing was tasty even though it was a bit too mayonnaisy for me, worth a try but does not beat the original.

The staff at the counter were nice and efficient and when I was a bit slow to pick up the food, they brought it to my table. Overall a very similar experience to visiting a Burger King in Europe or the U.S.

Super stacker lunch at BK

Reviewed on 2014-03-03 (Updated on 2015-09-14)

Being an avid burger fan & having just done a 4km walk, I decided that the Burger King branch on Phạm Hồng Thái was a well justified venue for lunch. Also, the fact that it was on my way, compounded my choice. I am already a devote BK fan but for the sake of this review, I decided to leave all past experiences behind.

I was politely asked for my order by Tuan the server, I ordered the ‘Super Stacker’ which is a temporary addition to the BK menu. I placed my order at 11:33 & at 11:36 Tuan politely indicated that my meal was ready. Three minutes is certainly fast enough, even for fast food in my view.

The burger itself is clearly a BK response to a signature burger of another well-known American burger chain. It contains 2 patties, cheese, onions, lettuce, mayo and ‘special sauce’ all contained in a bun with a bun middle as a divider. The burger itself was very satisfying, right temperature & the innards all tasted fresh. It certainly meets its rival & leaves oneself feeling content, my only gripe is that the onions should be chopped finer; the chunks of onion slightly overwhelm the burger. The fries were crispy & hot, the coca cola was cool with just the right amount of ice.

I am awarding BK 4 stars out of 5. My reasons for this are simply that I believe anywhere has room for improvement. Also the air con upstairs was not working properly so the place was too hot. This BK serves customers as you would expect with the same offerings found around the globe, convenient & recommended.
