Do you remember we recently did a review on one of the Lady Luck’s burgers and I promised more? Well, guess what we’re talking about today…
I’ve already gone on and on about how much I love the place, so let’s skip the decor and ambience and head right on to what you really care about: the food. The BBQ pulled jackfruit burger is described thusly:
It’s served in the same vegan white bread buns that the rest of the range also comes in, which are very simple and effective. They aren’t too floury, like white buns can be, so they’re a great fit.
Now, the actual burger on the inside: when I was writing my review notes for this one, I just put “AMAZING!!!” with the capitals and the three exclamation marks and everything. Because that’s what the burger is.
It’s fairly similar to the Linda McCartney Pulled Pork burgers that we love, but it has so much more flavour to it – really full-on BBQ. It’s sweet and has that BBQ tingle on your tongue with every bite, with tangy garlic and vinegar flavours. It’s also very fruity, and has a lot of tomato flavour in there too. Basically, a whole ton of flavours just explode right into your mouth.
The jackfruit is soft and easy to chew, to the point that you could simply pull it apart without having to bite. This makes it light work, especially for spoonies like me who sometimes have trouble with jaw movement (and even though the bun is stuffed full, you don’t have to become a snake to get it in your mouth). It has a squidgy kind of texture as you bite into it, and looks more like real pulled pork than those processed burgers.
It’s very messy and will slide around within the bun, but that’s all part of the fun. This is the only burger so far that I’ve had twice from the Lady Luck, which means it’s at least good enough to ignore the rest of the menu. I recommend this without any shadow of hesitation!
