Just like you, I love a good burger, especially a fried chicken one. However, I know some places that do amazing beef burgers and Tiger Burger is definitely one of them.
When people ask me for a good burger spot, I always mention Tiger Burger; one of my favourites on the menu is their Kimcheese, well, their Double Kimcheese to be exact. Check out the shot below:
Double aged-Taupo beef patties, sauteed house kimchi, aged cheddar and chilli mayo, it is some of the most flavourful, delicious and juiciest burgers you can get in Auckland. Despite being Korean, I actually am not the biggest fan of kimchi but I always love the sauteed one - and it tastes amazing in a burger.
This burger pictured above (and below) is the Old Boy burger: aged Taupo beef, slow-braised pork, caramelised onions, aged cheddar, rice vinegar pickles and mayo... It is also delicious.
You know, fried chicken is something I will never get sick of really... It has been one of my favourite things to eat since I was a kid and Tiger Burger's take on it is too good to pass. Introducing Seoulful Bites: perfectly-cooked free-range chicken pieces are glazed with yang nyum (old-school Korean sweet chilli) sauce, served with honey garlic mayo.
Just see the photo below.
It has a little heat - I like spicy food so for me, it was okay but if you cannot eat spicy food, get it anyway because it is so good.
And this! This is what I get most of the time - the Gang-Jeong Burger, which is the Korean Sweet Chilli Fried Chicken burger. The free-range chicken thigh is double-fried to maximise the crispiness and juiciness. Then it is coated with a chill-soy glaze - sandwiched together with pickled radish, shredded lettuce and chilli mayo between soft buns.
Also offering a wide range of drinks such as beers, wines, cocktails and soju, you definitely should add them to your To-Do-List. Check out their Instagram: @tigerburgernz.
Located in Grey Lynn, afterwards, you can grab a nice cup of coffee at the Postal Service Cafe; they serve Kokako coffee and it's good.
