Quick Lunch: K-Shock Japanese Takeaway – Visit No. 2

in Japanese, Melbourne, Quick Lunch

Read about my first visit here.

I forgot to bring my lunch to work last week so I used the opportunity to try out the Tokyo burgers I mentioned in a previous post. The shop had changed again, this time with photos of every single dish on their menu displayed. I think that is a good move on their part so people can see what’s on offer.

There are 4 different Tokyo burgers, a beef one, a teriyaki chicken one, a deep fried chicken one and a vege croquette one (though they call it coroquette!). They all sound good but I went with the teriyaki chicken one.

The only other teriyaki chicken burger I have had is from Mos Burger, a fast food chain I visited in Singapore. Despite its small size, the burger was so yum! It had a tender, flavoursome chicken thigh fillet in a slightly sweet bun, with lettuce and mayo.

K-Shock’s burger had a similar taste, except they used wasabi mayonnaise. I’m a wasabi wimp but I found the mayo not strong at all. I like the combination of the extra teriyaki sauce from the chicken mixed in with the creamy mayo.

Teriyaki Burger – teriyaki chicken, lettuce, tomato & wasabi mayo on a soft burger bun $6.50

It is quite a large burger, though not very attractive looking especially side on!

I was disappointed with the 4 relatively small pieces of chicken that were inside. However, what it lacks in chicken, it makes up with the salad! I removed the tomato as I don’t like tomatoes in my burgers.

It would have been better to use a whole chicken thigh fillet rather than pieces, but I guess they do that because their rice dish has the chicken pieces. The chicken pieces make the burger such a pain to eat – it goes everywhere! The bread was nice and soft though and I liked the flavour of the burger. Even though there wasn’t much chicken, it was still enough to fill me up.

I will be back to try the other burgers!

Over & Out, Rilsta xx

Ahh man, those chicken pieces would have driven me mad. Thats not a burger! its a chicken salad put in the middle of two pieces of bread!

Hi Daniel: Thanks for the suggestion. I'm looking forward to trying it but the thing I hate about that part of Toorak Road is the parking!

Hi Maria: Hehehe… it didn't taste that bad though. I hope the other burgers are more "burger like".
