Burger King at Churchgate

At Churchgate, just outside the train station, in place of Satkar restaurant – Burger King has set shop. I was so happy…finally an option to McDonald’s.

BK opened its Churchgate outlet on 30th of April. I visited the outlet on the 3rd of May. Between 5 of us, we ordered 2 Crispy Veg burgers, a Veg Whopper Regular and a Mutton Whopper Regular. For dessert we tried the BK chocolate sundae.

At Rs. 35 the Crispy Veg is good. (All prices are subject to taxes). I kept comparing each dish to McDonald’s and BK came out strong in almost all. The Veg and Mutton Whoppers were a hit with the group. At Rs. 159 and Rs. 169 respectively, they are a whole meal in themselves. The burgers are large and full of flavour. The burger includes French fries and a cola. Eat this and your meal is complete. Unlike at McDonald’s were the burger size is so small and lacks flavour.

The BK sundae was regular in taste.

A relative who just past us on our way in, however recommend against the Razzberry Blues ice bolt beverage.

Loved the place so much that I went there again on the 10th of May – as part of the Mothers’ day celebrations I asked to be taken there for dinner. Ordered the Veggie Strips – Rs. 25, Veg Chilli Chezos Rs. 59, a Spicy Bean Royale Burger, a Chicken Whopper Regular and a Chocolate shake.

The Veggie Strips were good but the Chilli Chezos were fantastic. The Chezos were very cheesy and very spicy. The Spicy Bean Burger came in a hotdog-shaped bun. Again the taste was interesting. What I seem to like about BK is that their food is well flavoured and there is actually a taste to the food vis-à-vis to McDonalds where the food is bland (probably so that even toddlers can enjoy).

The chicken whopper was ok but the chocolate shake was so gooood.

The 3rd time – on the 14th, I got my hubby to parcel home for me a Veg Chilli Cheese burger – OMG – it was yummy. Everytime I bit into one of the burgers I feel so good – finally burgers that have flavours! I keep repeating that.

4th time on 21st May – 10.30 pm – craving for BK burger. Hubby was on his way back from work. My request for the Paneer King Burger came true. Oh nice, very nice. Craving satiated. (Sorry no picture – devoured it as soon as I got my hands on it)

5th time – 24th May – picked up dinner for myself – just a Veg Whopper – enjoyed it thoroughly.

Today is the 28th and I’m again waiting to eat again at BK! I guess it just goes to show how parched I’ve been to an option to McDonald’s.

That pic on top is the menu of the restaurant. Its a nice change from the regular menus one sees across the city. Also, the restaurant is well done up. Simple but elegant and chic. The restaurant is at 2 levels and I chose to sit upstairs – I’ve always preferred upstairs at this restaurant (I’ve eaten a lot at the old Sundance cafe. This Sundance Cafe has taken over from the old management, having just bought out their name; everything else is with a new management. Started in November 2012)

To start our dinner, we ordered a Lemon Iced Tea and Factory Nachos

Its PERFECT. At Rs. 100, I am very happy and dive into the nachos.

Factory Nachos

The Nachos were full of flavour. Crunchy and tasty. However, the cheese sauce was less but we were giving an additional helping as soon as we asked for it. The portion size is very small. At Rs. 425, its just a layer or two of nachos scattered across the plate. At such a price I would have expected to find a nice small heap of nachos which could almost serve as a mini meal by itself!

For mains ordered the Habanero Spiced Black Bean burger and an Indian Salmon.

Its a good burger, but the potato wedges steal the show – easily. The burger is a black mean mince with avocado tapenade and tomato salsa. The burger is average. Priced at Rs. 425, I find it on the expensive side. (These prices are exclusive of Service tax and Service Charge) For vegetarians, the choice in burgers is this or a mushroom based one. However, met with the chef and they are introducing more options in veg and non-veg in the coming few weeks. Eat this with their mustard sauce and I go Ummmm…….. The mustard sauce is just like the one served at Indigo Deli.

The Indian Salmon is a pan-seared rawas served on a bed of mashed potatoes, served with zucchini and green onion cream sauce. At Rs. 525, its a great dish to be had as a main course. The fish is cooked flawless, the mashed potatoes are well herb-ed , the zucchini and eggplant are well-sauteed and all of this is brought together with the lightly flavoured green onion cream sauce – the sauce is just awesome – no other words to describe it. The dish on the whole gets a 4 on 5.

The dinner was a good end to the day. I am definitely going back to try the other options on the menu, especially their beverages and desserts – next time.

Chef is a young man, friendly and helpful. The staff attentive and discreet. Go to Sundance Cafe and enjoy a good meal.
