KFC -ov novi 'svečani burger' dolazi u Veliku Britaniju za Božić

Prelivi zvuče *kuharski poljubac *

KFC je predstavio novo božićno jelo: svečani burger. Iako je više sendvič od piletine nego klasični hamburger (nema govedine), definitivno opravdava svoje ime.

Najbolji hamburger u svakoj državi

Sendvič od pržene piletine sadrži originalni recept fileta bez kostiju sa svim klasičnim prazničnim dodacima. Sadrži i majonez punjen smeđom bojom, kaduljom i lukom, prelivom od brusnica i kriškom sira na običnoj prepečenoj lepinji.

Ako želite probati svečani burger, morat ćete uskočiti u avion. Služi se samo u Velikoj Britaniji, gdje je dostupan a la carte ili kao dio obroka s pomfritom i pića ili boksa sa prilogom, pomfritom, pilećim batom i pićem.

Slično u Kanadi, Boston Pizza je lansirala novu božićnu pitu sa začinjenom ćuretinom sa pečenim mesom, domaćim nadjevom, krem ​​umakom od kadulje od ružmarina, talijanskim sirevima, umakom od brusnica i toplim purećim umakom posluženim sa Tobleroneom sa strane. Iako lanac ima lokacije u SAD -u (ovdje se zove Bostonska pizza), ovaj predmet je ekskluzivan za šešir naše zemlje. Više sreće drugi put. Naprotiv, znate šta je oboje ukusno i pristupačno? 101 najbolja pizza u Americi.


Montagues domaći goveđi hamburger

Domaći goveđi hamburger sa vašim izborom zrelog cheddara, mozzarelle ili plavog sira. Posluženo uz naš domaći hamburger sos, salatu, kiseli krastavac i pomfrit#038.

Blackpool po vrlo vjetrovitom danu. Da li život postaje bolji? Rock koji ubija zube, stari zabavljači, čitanje dlanova, Glasvežani, jahanje magaraca, konac za slatkiše. Vrištite ako želite ići brže.

No daleko od bezvremenske privlačnosti šetališta i pristaništa, nedaleko od poznate plaže Pleasure, nalazi se Montagues. Smješten na ulici s eklektičnom mješavinom trgovina i kafića, s malim pročeljem koje biste mogli propustiti, ovo ima elegantan izgled iznutra i izvana.

U stvari, vani su čak bili i stolovi, ali danas nije bio dan za sjedenje vani.##8211 Sigurno nisam ’ želio da mi hamburger, ili ja, oduvamo.

Izvan Montaguesa, južne obale …

Montagues nije ’t fensi, niti je oronuo – moj prvi dojam je da apsolutno savršeno pogađa njegov “susjedski restoran i bar ” ton. Da živim ovdje, vjerovatno bih bio#PUNO. A ljepota je u tome što, dok služi južnoj obali i susjedstvu, nije ni duga šetnja za turiste koji žele pobjeći sa šetališta.

To nije hamburger. Na jelovniku se nalaze tri hamburgera (pileći, goveđi i vegetarijanski), među ostalim standardnim jelima, mješavina onih koja na papiru izgledaju kao dobro smišljena jela.

Iako sam malo ranije za ručak (otvoren je cijeli dan, ali postoji standardni doručak/predaja glavnog menija u podne), njegova svijetla, moderna, udobna i usluga je prijateljska i dobrodošla. Smještam se uz šalicu čaja i čekam podne kao najdostojanstveniji oružani napadač.

Unutra je vrlo dobrodošla …

Burger (onaj od govedine, očigledno i do sada me dobro poznajete) ima vrlo povoljne cijene za nijansu ispod 7 funti, a to uključuje pomfrit po cijeni od 2,50 funti za prilog. Doduše, strane su obično prilično označene, ali mislim da ovo i dalje nudi izuzetnu vrijednost sve dok se kvaliteta drži.

Dolazi kao prilično uobičajena konstrukcija – Patty, kiseli krastavci, salata, hamburger umak i izbor sira – mozzarelle, cheddar ili plavi. Danas idem na Italiano, ali obično bih odabrao cheddar.

Slanina, svinjetina i dodatna pljeskavica dostupni su uz nadoplatu i da, znam što uvijek govorim o slanini, ali danas sam samo htjela ovo kako stigne. Sama goveđa pljeskavica je opisana kao “homemade ” što je jako dobro, pa na prvi pogled sve ovo zvuči obećavajuće. Hajde da vidimo kako se stvarnost slaže.

Tanjir molim …!

Došao je na ploči s pristojnom zdjelom pomfrita, tražeći cijeli svijet kao nešto što bi trebalo koštati više od 6,95 funti. Na ovakvom mjestu, ja bih radije volio da mi hrana bude na pametnom tanjuru, a ne na dasci za sjeckanje, i nisam bio pretjerano zaljubljen u mali kiseli krastavčić na vrhu hamburgera.

Nazovite me staromodnim, ali preljevi od hamburgera pripadaju hamburgeru, a hrana se poslužuje na tanjuru. Ovo su manji problemi i ne bi umanjili niti dodali ukus – Ja ’d biram kiseli krastavac gdje god je stavljen.

Snop je držao ražanj (koji je takođe držao kiseli krastavčić na mjestu) i mogao sam vidjeti da je goveđa pljeskavica prilično gusta. Također sam vidio da “salata ” znači zelena salata, crveni luk i paradajz, od kojih ću posljednji ukloniti.

Lepinja je izgledala zgnječeno i svježe, a veličina je bila upravljiva. Kad sam u to ubio zube, bio je zaista svjež. Bio sam impresioniran.

Nakon upita, već mi je rečeno da će se govedina skuhati (isti razlozi kao i obično ovih dana), ali i dalje sam ostao impresioniran. Goveđe pecivo, domaće proizvodnje, imalo je idealan okus i teksturu.

Bio je prilično labavo pakiran, što ja uvijek preferiram (debelo pakirano, prekuhano, tvrdokorne pljeskavice su kućni ljubimci) i skuhano baš kako treba, a unutrašnjost je gotovo pahuljasta – onoliko koliko goveđe mljeveno meso može biti pahuljasto, tj. .

Kao što sam ranije rekao, bio je prilično gust, ali nikada nije osjetio preopterećenje i bio je začinjen gotovo do savršenstva. Do ovog trenutka sam potpuno uživao u svom hamburgeru. Kao što uvijek kažem, bez obzira da li je hamburger običan ili prljav, to se svodi na kvalitetu goveđe mješavine, a gospođa Yates i njeni kuhari dobro su odabrali.

Odlična govedina ovdje …

Crveni luk i zelena salata svojim su blagim hrskanjem razbili mekoću lepinje i govedine, a crveni luk je naravno pružio tu radosnu notu. Iako je ovo relativno običan hamburger, mogu zamisliti njegovu verziju sa običnim lukom u razvojnoj kuhinji i preduzimljivim kuharom koji kaže “ znate šta, hajde da probamo crveni luk – Mislim da će ’ poboljšati ovaj hamburger &# 8221. I jeste.

Mocarela, naravno, ne dodaje mnogo sramežljivosti, ali i sami to znate. Ovdje je dobro funkcionirao i zaista mi je drago što sam ga odabrao u odnosu na druge dvije opcije. Njegova nježna plutavost vrlo se dobro uklapa s mekom govedinom i mekom lepinjom.

Dobra upotreba preljeva …

I to me dovodi do umaka za hamburgere –, kao što je to često slučaj, blago narandžaste boje i možda malo pokušaja oponašanja djeda od umaka za hamburgere i#8211 Big Mac ’ posebnog umaka. U ovom slučaju, dovoljno je samo da pojačate ukuse, a da ne nadjačate svoje osjetljivije kolege.

Cijela ova stvar je bila dobro predstavljena i imala je odličan okus. To jedva da je najuzbudljiviji hamburger koji sam ikada jeo, ali vi ćete se boriti da pronađete bolji hamburger po tako povoljnoj cijeni, u tako ugodnom okruženju, u blizini britanskog vrhunskog ljetovališta na moru.

Bez obzira imate li hamburger (a mislim da biste trebali), mislim da bi svi koji idu u Blackpool trebali posjetiti Montagues.

Cijela ova stvar je bila dobro predstavljena i imala je odličan okus. To jedva da je najuzbudljiviji hamburger koji sam ikada jeo, ali vi ćete se boriti da pronađete bolji hamburger po tako povoljnoj cijeni, u tako ugodnom okruženju, u blizini britanskog vrhunskog ljetovališta na moru.

Bez obzira imate li hamburger (a mislim da biste trebali), mislim da bi svi koji idu u Blackpool trebali posjetiti Montagues.

Odličan običan hamburger …


Montagues domaći goveđi hamburger

Domaći goveđi hamburger sa vašim izborom zrelog cheddara, mozzarelle ili plavog sira. Posluženo uz naš domaći burger sos, salatu, kiseli krastavac i pomfrit#038.

Blackpool po vrlo vjetrovitom danu. Da li život postaje bolji? Rock koji ubija zube, stari zabavljači, čitanje dlanova, Glasvežani, jahanje magaraca, konac za slatkiše. Vrištite ako želite ići brže.

No daleko od bezvremenske privlačnosti šetališta i pristaništa, nedaleko od poznate plaže Pleasure, nalazi se Montagues. Smješten na ulici s eklektičnom mješavinom trgovina i kafića, s malim pročeljem koje biste mogli propustiti, ovo ima elegantan izgled iznutra i izvana.

U stvari, vani su čak bili i stolovi, ali danas nije bio dan za sjedenje vani.##8211 Sigurno nisam ’ želio da mi hamburger, ili ja, oduvamo.

Izvan Montaguesa, južne obale …

Montagues nije ’t fensi, niti je oronuo – moj prvi dojam je da apsolutno savršeno pogađa njegov “susjedski restoran i bar ” ton. Da sam živio ovdje, vjerovatno bih bio#PUNO. A ljepota je u tome što, dok služi južnoj obali i susjedstvu, nije ni duga šetnja za turiste koji žele pobjeći sa šetališta.

To nije hamburger. Na jelovniku se nalaze tri hamburgera (pileći, goveđi i vegetarijanski), među ostalim standardnim jelima, mješavina onih koja na papiru izgledaju kao dobro smišljena jela.

Iako sam malo ranije za ručak (otvoren je cijeli dan, ali postoji standardni doručak/primopredaja glavnog menija u podne), njegova svijetla, moderna, udobna i usluga je prijateljska i dobrodošla. Smještam se uz šalicu čaja i čekam podne kao najdostojanstveniji oružani napadač.

Unutra je vrlo dobrodošla …

Pljeskavica (ona od govedine očigledno i do sada me dobro poznajete) po vrlo je niskim cijenama za nijansu ispod 7 funti, a to uključuje pomfrit po cijeni od 2,50 funti za prilog. Doduše, strane su obično prilično označene, ali mislim da ovo i dalje nudi izuzetnu vrijednost sve dok se kvaliteta drži.

Dolazi kao prilično uobičajena konstrukcija – Patty, kiseli krastavci, salata, hamburger umak i izbor sira – mozzarelle, cheddar ili plavi. Danas idem na Italiano, ali obično bih odabrao cheddar.

Slanina, svinjetina i dodatna pljeskavica dostupni su uz nadoplatu i da, znam što uvijek govorim o slanini, ali danas sam samo htjela ovo kako stigne. Sama goveđa pljeskavica opisana je kao “homemade ” što je jako dobro, pa na prvi pogled sve ovo zvuči obećavajuće. Hajde da vidimo kako se stvarnost slaže.

Tanjir molim …!

Došao je na ploči s pristojnom zdjelom pomfrita, tražeći cijeli svijet kao nešto što bi trebalo koštati više od 6,95 funti. Na ovakvom mjestu, ja bih radije volio da mi hrana bude na pametnom tanjuru, a ne na dasci za sjeckanje, i nisam bio pretjerano zaljubljen u mali kiseli krastavčić na vrhu hamburgera.

Nazovite me staromodnim, ali preljevi od hamburgera pripadaju hamburgeru, a hrana se poslužuje na tanjuru. Ovo su manji problemi i ne bi umanjili niti dodali ukus – Ja ’d biram kiseli krastavac gdje god je stavljen.

Snop je držao ražanj (koji je takođe držao kiseli krastavčić na mjestu) i mogao sam vidjeti da je goveđa pljeskavica prilično gusta. Također sam vidio da “salata ” znači zelena salata, crveni luk i paradajz, od kojih ću posljednji ukloniti.

Lepinja je izgledala zgnječeno i svježe, a veličina se mogla kontrolirati. Kad sam u to ubio zube, bio je zaista svjež. Bio sam impresioniran.

Nakon upita, već mi je rečeno da će se govedina skuhati (isti razlozi kao i obično ovih dana), ali i dalje sam ostao impresioniran. Goveđe pljeskavice, domaće proizvodnje, imale su idealan okus i teksturu.

Bio je prilično labavo pakiran, što ja uvijek preferiram (debelo pakirano, prekuhano, tvrdokorne pljeskavice su kućni ljubimci) i skuhano baš kako treba, a unutrašnjost je gotovo pahuljasta – onoliko koliko goveđe mljeveno meso može biti pahuljasto, tj. .

Kao što sam ranije rekao, bio je prilično gust, ali nikada nije osjetio preopterećenje i bio je začinjen gotovo do savršenstva. Do ovog trenutka sam potpuno uživao u svom hamburgeru. Kao što uvijek kažem, bez obzira da li je hamburger običan ili prljav, to se svodi na kvalitetu goveđe mješavine, a gospođa Yates i njeni kuhari dobro su odabrali.

Odlična govedina ovdje …

Crveni luk i zelena salata svojim su blagim hrskanjem razbili mekoću lepinje i govedine, a crveni luk je naravno pružio tu radosnu notu. Iako je ovo relativno običan hamburger, mogu zamisliti njegovu verziju sa običnim lukom u razvojnoj kuhinji i preduzimljivim kuharom koji kaže “ znate šta, hajde da probamo crveni luk – Mislim da će ’ poboljšati ovaj hamburger &# 8221. I jeste.

Mocarela, naravno, ne dodaje mnogo sramežljivosti, ali znate i sami. Ovdje je dobro funkcionirao i zaista mi je drago što sam ga odabrao u odnosu na druge dvije opcije. Njegova nježna plutavost vrlo se dobro uklapa s mekom govedinom i mekom lepinjom.

Dobra upotreba preljeva …

Blackpool po vrlo vjetrovitom danu. Da li život postaje bolji? Tooth-killing rock, aging entertainers, palm-reading, Glaswegians, donkey rides, candy floss. Scream if you want to go faster.

But away from the timeless appeal of the promenade and piers, not too far from the famed Pleasure Beach, is Montagues. Situated on a street with an eclectic mix of shops and cafes, with a small-ish frontage you might miss, this has an elegant look both inside and outside.

In fact, there were even tables outside but today was not a day for sitting outside – I certainly didn’t want my burger, or myself, to blow away.

Outside Montagues, South Shore…

Montagues isn’t fancy, nor is it run-down – my first impression is that it absolutely hits its “neighbourhood restaurant and bar” tone perfectly. If I lived around here, I’d probably be in a LOT. And the beauty is, that while serving the south shore “neighbourhood”, it’s also not a long walk for tourists looking to escape the promenade either.

It’s not a burger joint. There happen to be three burgers on the menu (chicken, beef and vegetarian) amongst other items of standard-ish fayre, a mix of what, on paper, seems to be well thought out dishes.

Although I’m a little early for lunch (it’s open all day but there’s a standard breakfast/main menu handover at noon), its bright, modern, comfortable and service is friendly and welcome. I settle down with a cup of tea and wait for noon like the most dignified of gunslingers.

Inside is very welcoming…

The burger (the beef one obviously – you know me well enough by now) is priced very keenly at a shade under £7 and this includes fries which are priced at £2.50 for a side. Now, granted the sides are typically marked up quite a bit, but I think this still offers terrific value as long as the quality holds up.

It comes as a fairly usual build – Patty, pickle, salad, burger sauce and a choice of cheese – mozzarella, cheddar or blue. I’m going Italiano today but usually I would choose cheddar.

Bacon, pulled pork and an extra patty are all available at extra cost and yes, I know what I always say about bacon, but today I just wanted this as it comes. The beef patty itself is described as “homemade” which is very good, so on the face of it, this all sounds promising. Let’s see how the reality stacks up.

Plate please…!

It came on a board with a decent bowl of fries, looking for all the world like something that ought to cost more than £6.95. In a place like this, I’d really prefer to have my food on a smart plate rather than a chopping board, and I wasn’t overly keen on the little pickle on top of the burger.

Call me old-fashioned, but burger toppings belong inside the burger, and food is served on a plate. These are minor issues, and wouldn’t detract or add to the taste – I’d be picking the pickle out wherever it had been placed.

The stack was held together by a skewer (which also kept the pickle in place) and I could see that the beef patty was quite thick. I also saw that “salad” meant lettuce, red onion and tomato the latter of which I’d be removing.

The bun looked squashy and fresh and the size was manageable. When I got my teeth into it, it was indeed fresh. I was impressed.

After asking, I’d already been told the beef would be cooked through (same reasons as usual these days) but still I remained impressed. The beef patty, homemade on the premises, had an ideal flavour and texture.

It had been packed quite loosely which I always prefer (thickly-packed, overcooked, hard-going patties are a pet peeve) and cooked just right, the interior being almost fluffy – as much as ground beef can be fluffy, that is.

As I said earlier, it was quite thick but never felt overwhelming and had been seasoned almost to perfection. I was thoroughly enjoying my burger by this point. As I always say, whether the burger is plain, or dirty, it comes down to the quality of the beef blend and Ms Yates and her chefs have chosen well.

Terrific beef in here…

The red onion and the lettuce broke up the softness of the bun and beef with their slight crunch, and the red onion of course providing that joyful tang. Although this is a relatively plain burger, I can imagine a version of this with regular onions in the development kitchen, and an enterprising chef saying “you know what, lets try red onion – I think it’ll enhance this burger”. And it does.

The mozzarella of course, doesn’t add a lot of cheesiness but you know it’s there. It worked well here and I’m actually glad I chose it over the other two options. Its gentle floatiness fits very well with the soft beef and soft bun.

Good use of toppings…

And that brings me to the burger sauce – as is so often the case, a slight orangey colour and perhaps a bit of an attempt to emulate the granddaddy of burger sauces – the Big Mac’s special sauce. In this case, it’s just enough to jazz up the flavours without overpowering its more delicate colleagues in there.

This whole thing was well presented and tasted great. It’s hardly the most exciting burger I’ve ever had but you’ll struggle to find a better burger at such a good price, in such pleasant surroundings, this close to Britain’s premier seaside resort.

Whether or not you have the burger (and I think you should), I think everyone going to Blackpool should visit Montagues.

Great plain-ish burger…

Call me old-fashioned, but burger toppings belong inside the burger, and food is served on a plate. These are minor issues, and wouldn’t detract or add to the taste – I’d be picking the pickle out wherever it had been placed.

The stack was held together by a skewer (which also kept the pickle in place) and I could see that the beef patty was quite thick. I also saw that “salad” meant lettuce, red onion and tomato the latter of which I’d be removing.

The bun looked squashy and fresh and the size was manageable. When I got my teeth into it, it was indeed fresh. I was impressed.

After asking, I’d already been told the beef would be cooked through (same reasons as usual these days) but still I remained impressed. The beef patty, homemade on the premises, had an ideal flavour and texture.

It had been packed quite loosely which I always prefer (thickly-packed, overcooked, hard-going patties are a pet peeve) and cooked just right, the interior being almost fluffy – as much as ground beef can be fluffy, that is.

As I said earlier, it was quite thick but never felt overwhelming and had been seasoned almost to perfection. I was thoroughly enjoying my burger by this point. As I always say, whether the burger is plain, or dirty, it comes down to the quality of the beef blend and Ms Yates and her chefs have chosen well.

Terrific beef in here…

The red onion and the lettuce broke up the softness of the bun and beef with their slight crunch, and the red onion of course providing that joyful tang. Although this is a relatively plain burger, I can imagine a version of this with regular onions in the development kitchen, and an enterprising chef saying “you know what, lets try red onion – I think it’ll enhance this burger”. And it does.

The mozzarella of course, doesn’t add a lot of cheesiness but you know it’s there. It worked well here and I’m actually glad I chose it over the other two options. Its gentle floatiness fits very well with the soft beef and soft bun.

Good use of toppings…

And that brings me to the burger sauce – as is so often the case, a slight orangey colour and perhaps a bit of an attempt to emulate the granddaddy of burger sauces – the Big Mac’s special sauce. In this case, it’s just enough to jazz up the flavours without overpowering its more delicate colleagues in there.

This whole thing was well presented and tasted great. It’s hardly the most exciting burger I’ve ever had but you’ll struggle to find a better burger at such a good price, in such pleasant surroundings, this close to Britain’s premier seaside resort.

Whether or not you have the burger (and I think you should), I think everyone going to Blackpool should visit Montagues.

Great plain-ish burger…
