Adelaide Food Central was invited to the Ambassador event at Burger Foundry. All food and drinks were provided free of charge.
Burger Foundry has come a long way from being a tiny little suburban burger store, to what will now be a national and international chain. Guests were invited tonight for the announcement by Johnny Yung, CEO of the Taste of the Orient Group, which owns Burger Foundry, and popular restaurants such as Ginza and Ginza Miyako.
All guests were provided with their full range of sides; Mozzarella and Bacon Tater Totts, Hand Cut Chips and Onion Rings. The Tater Totts were firm and crispy on the outside with a soft and delicate mash potato like centre. Quite similarly, the Hand Cut Chips had a crunchy exterior with a light and fluffy centre. The Onion Rings looked like they were covered in panko crumbs hiding multiple rings of finely sliced onion. Served with a creamy garlic aioli, this was the perfect way to start the evening.
The burger I ordered was the Texan Madness. A Burger Foundry classic right from the beginning, the meat patty was perfectly cooked with a beautiful light pinkish centre. The sweetness of the tomato salsa and smoked barbecue sauce was heightened by the spicy chipotle chilli. I’ve had this burger 3 times now and it just tastes better each and every time.
Of course, I can’t leave this place without having their Sweet and Sticky Ribs. The pork ribs were well marinted, tender and succulent, with the meat simply falling off the bone. The sweetness of the bourbon barbecue sauce was subtle and not over powering. Simply a perfect way to finish off the night.
I’ve been a Burger Foundry customer right from the beginning, and it pleases me to see where they are today. The ingredients used are fresh and of a premium quality, and the menu has been refined to include only their popular items. Combine this with great customer service and a warm and inviting atmosphere, and it’s no wonder this chain is able to go international.
