Royale Chick

Feeling like a burger for lunch, yet knowing that I would be having beef for dinner, I decided to mix it up a bit and go for a chicken burger instead. I decided to visit a place in Malvern East called “Home to Roost”, where the menu is filled with grilled chicken burgers and lots of other chicken things too! Now, whilst I am a big fan of fried chicken in a beef burger, this is only the second time I have reviewed a straight up chicken burger. The last time was while on holidays in Port Douglas, so I was curious as to how this would stack up.

I ordered “The Royale” which came with grilled marinated free-range breast fillet, iceberg lettuce, bacon, cheese, tomato and mayo. It is a true takeaway styled place, with only one small table to sit at outside and luckily, it was a cold, windy day so I was able to grab a seat to enjoy my feast.

Finally it was ready, and as soon as I opened the box, I thought how good it looked. I picked it up straight away. This burger was wide, not high and the ingredients were well spread, ensuring a good flavour combination with each bite. The grilled chicken was amazing!! It was juicy, tender and cooked to perfection. The marinade was super tasty too, without being sickly or overpowering. Bacon was great, with the lettuce and tomato being fresh too. Plus the mayo provided just the right amount of flavour to compliment the whole burger. The bun was more like a flat focaccia style rather than a traditional bun, and you could argue that it was more like a gourmet sandwich, but it’s called a burger, so I’m sticking with it!!

Chips on the side were seasoned with chicken salt and had just the right amount of crispiness, making them a good compliment to the meal. And with limited drink choices, water was the order of the day!

Overall, this was a great experience and I highly recommend you find out for yourself. It was one of the best chicken burgers I’ve ever had, in fact I enjoyed it more than a lot of beef burgers. Best of all, I didn’t feel that heavy, full feeling all afternoon either, so likely to appeal to some of those (partially) health conscious people out there too! Next time, I will go for “the Boss”!!
