KFC Cheesetop Burger Review
Today I’m going to write about KFC’s newest burger that has been getting a mixture of love and hate reactions from blogs, news and word of mouth. So what exactly is the cheesetop burger? It looks very similar to their streetwise chicken burger except for the fact that there’s a slice of cheese on top of the bun. Yes, not just a cheesy bun as I initially thought but a literal slice of cheese that has been baked on top to make it stick.
Now, for the purpose of comparison and since I was hungry, I bought a cheesetop burger (PHP 50) and a streetwise chicken burger (PHP 29). Guess which of them is the cheesetop burger?
My initial guess was the one of the right but I was wrong. It was the one on the left so it left me wondering why a burger that costs PHP19 more would be smaller? Now moving on to the burger…
Please see this close up of the cheese on top. I couldn’t taste the cheese properly because it would get stuck at the roof of my mouth. The bread was soft and chewy which was different from their original burger. They also used a different dressing (garlic parmesan) and the chicken patty was less crunchy. I ended up flipping the top bun so that the cheese would be in between the burger and I was able to taste the cheese properly. The cheese slice itself wasn’t that good also because it was a bit dry.
The KFC Streetwise CheeseTop Burger sells for PHP 50 and that already includes drinks. If you want to order it a la carte, you have to pay PHP 48 (only PHP2 for a soft drink?!). As of now, I’m not sold on paying extra just for a slice of cheese so I’d still stick to the chicken burger for my quick KFC Burger fix.
Till next time,
