Lincolnite taste test: Burger King’s new Halloumi Burger

Burger King launched its new Halloumi Burger on Monday and The Lincolnite gave it the taste test treatment.

It is served in a buttery brioche bun with freshly cut lettuce, onions, tomatoes and creamy mayo.

On its own, the burger costs £3.99 or it can be doubled up for £5.49. If you want it as a meal it is priced at £5.99 or a doubled up meal at £7.49.

The Lincolnite team ordered from the St Mark’s branch and while the burger looked appealing, it wasn’t quite the bright, colourful and tall vision from the posters.

The halloumi itself was delicious and the salad and mayo definitely complimented the taste of the ‘squeaky cheese’.

Doubling up was a wise choice. The patties were much thinner than they appeared on the menu. One might not have hit the spot.

Although one Lincolnite journalist was frank in his review, rating it “bang average”, the general consensus was that it passed the taste test.

The question is, is it value for money? I’m not so sure. The cost of the burger by itself seems like a lot, and you’d probably want to double up and make it a meal for it to be worth it.

For me it got a thumbs up on the enjoyability scale, but failed in its value for money and it is the latter point that would stop me rushing back to get another one soon.

It wouldn’t be my first choice on the menu, but it’s good to see my vegetarian friends catered for.
