Since I worked quite hard these days, I decided to give myself a treat - to have a fabulous meal at lunch. The appealing fast food restaurant Triple O's came across my mind instantly, and I was anticipating the lunch hour for the whole morning.
At lunch, I went to Triple O's and found there was no one on the queue, fabulous. I went through my choicephoia and finally made my decision on the Mushroom Burger Combo. I actually have a thing towards mushroom, so according to my boyfriend, my choice was not hard to predict. Anyway, I ordered the set priced at $68, which I also requested an extra egg topping for $5. Given the price of the combo, $5 was comparably cost nothing.
My Mushroom Burger Combo was made with 100% pure beef patty topped with fresh sautéed mushrooms and triple O’s sauce. It was not my first time having Triple O's Burger, but before I blogged about food, I never really remember how food tasted like when I had them. So I was really excited about having a nice big delicious burger at lunch.
Anyway, when I unwrapped my burger, funny enough I found my slice of pickle at side on top of my burger. The pickle was a pretty large slice. Since I love pickle in my burger, I immediately inserted it to the happy layers of toppings in between the burger buns. My colleagues commented the put aside act was very considerate since she didn’t like pickle very much and would take it out everytime when she encounters pickles in burger. My boyfriend told me that in the US, people usually ate the pickles separately from the burgers. E.g. Several bites of burgers then a bit of pickle. Interesting.
Triple O’s burger was in general not a particular huge bun, i could still managed to take a mouth bite from top to bottom in one go after squeezing the buns together. Somehow I did have this constance dilemma of having the great satisfaction brought from a huge burger and the messiness it brought me when every single bits of the toppings fell out. I do think I am a greedy person, so I did wish Trip;e O's burger was larger.
I have my 100 % pure beef patty
grilled to medium, and I was a bit disappointed as it was not exactly as juicy as I thought it would be. Although it was not juicy enough, the possession of a strong beef taste counter balanced that. Adding the Triple O's secret saucing, the patty tasted amazingly delicious.The Egg
was a Over Hard one and I was partially dissatisfied about the thickness of the egg. the egg was done too thin that it lost the mouthfeel that it supposed to have possessed. Whereas, the mushroom
were also a bit tiny, which I personally prefer a nice portabello if only they could have any.
On the other hand, the Chips
were amazing too! They were all thickly sliced, possessed a crispy as well as golden yellow coating. The chips were at suitable saltiness, but having ketchup to go with it was even better.Triple O’s saucing
was extremely good. It totally spiced up the burger and gave much more taste and moisturization to the beef patty. The sauce was plenty and was literally everywhere - in the buns, between the layers of toppings as well as the paper wrapper. Although I did not mind the overflowing sauces and the messiness, I could not helped wondering why they had to have so many sauces on the bun. I flipped through Triple O's take away leaflet and found this.“The burger-only concept, Triple O’s. was launched in 1997 and was named after carhop shorthand where three “X”s meant no sauce and three “O”s meant extra extra extra sauce. "
And here it explains why.
