When a restaurant serves the freshest made to order burgers in addition to healthy salads and mesmerizing appetizers, in addition to the staff dancing jubilantly on a few songs, then that place is a force to reckon with. We all are familiar with Johnny Rockets, the international chain, reputed for their burgers and shakes and their ohh-so-American way of life.
They have recently introduced a festive menu where you can have a six course meal at drop dead prices. Seriously! The copious quantities of appetizers, pre-appetizers, shakes, burgers and salads are available just under 500 bucks. Difficult to believe? Go visit the Vasant Kunj and Gurgaon outlets to experience the unbelievable.
Following are some of the items I tasted from their new menu:
Strawberry shake: So finally someone knows how to whip up a subtle strawberry shake with the freshness of the miracle fruit intact. The freshly crushed strawberries lent their sweetness to a rich milk based concoction with no extra sweeteners and fresh smooth whipped cream on top. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Onion Rings: Good. Not too burnt or too soggy or even too oily. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken bacon cheddar whole wheat burger: So when I am ordering a burger with a bacon based patty, I would expect a moderate quantity of bacon. Here the case was opposite. Just one small strip in addition to brittle buns. But the chicken patty was grilled well and drenched in melted cheddar. I loved the fact that it was not too cheesy.
Hot n spicy chicken wings: Not hot or even spicy at all. Though they were tangy and juicy.
Rocket tenderloin burger: An average burger to me. Buns were brittle and the patty was chewy.
