Attractive advertisement images convinced us to give Burger King’s Ultimate Kakiage Salmon a try. Let’s find out if its really as appetizing as what they are showing in their ads.
Let’s start off with it’s salmon patty. There was hardly any taste of salmon, light pinkish colour, flaky and moist but with a soggy mushy crust.
Kakiage or kaki-age, a Japanese dish of deep fried batter-dipped stuff, and in this sad case, mixed vegetables. It’s kakiage was shaped into a roundish patty to fit nicely into it’s bun shape, but was somewhat stale, oily, and resembles almost like Sachima, a chinese sweet snack made of fluffy strands of fried batter bound together with a stiff sugar syrup. Combined with the dismay salmon patty with mayo on top, it was a terribly executed attempt to create a new menu item.
At $10.90 for a meal, Burger King Ultimate Kakiage Salmon is definitely way overpriced for such disappointing quality.
