So when the lovely Kelly dropped me an invite to go and give the Tiger Tower Burger Challenge at Tiger Tiger a go, I had to say yes.
My reputation was on the line y’know? I had to go and redeem myself. I had no choice. I had to eat. that. burger.
And oh boy what a burger!
A perfectly cooked beef patty, topped with cheese, a butterflied chicken breast, slices of crispy bacon, onion rings and burger sauce. All sandwiched between a brioche burger bun. Served with fries, coleslaw, a beer and a shot of Jack Daniels.
A BEER. AND A SHOT. OF JACK DANIELS. It’s part of the meal deal. And I have no shame in saying that I drank neither the beer nor the JD. Because beer fills me up too much, and whiskey is just… ew. No.
HOWEVER. I did finish the burger. ALL OF IT. And I even managed most of the fries and the coleslaw. And Erica and I were the only ones who managed it. Out of a group of 10. So now I feel validated and victorious. (Ahh alliteration. What a babe.)
The burger itself was DELICIOUS. Juicy and flavourful and full of yum. A few of us commented that it tasted kinda like an upgraded Big Mac, and that made us happy. Not quite up to Bleeker Street standard (I doubt I’ll EVER find somewhere that is!), but still a really good burger.
The fries were crispy, but could have done with some more salt added to them.
We also ordered a stack of chocolate and mango pancakes to try after, but I just couldn’t quite warm to them. The mango and chocolate didn’t really work together and the pancakes were just bland and nondescript.
