Another visit to Happy Ending, and great burger. I’ve rarely eaten a regular menu burger, and while this is a regular menu item, it’s been morphed away from its intended flavour profile with the addition of the beef patty.
I’ve tried a few triple threat burgers lately. I’m not convinced it works better than a simpler beef/bacon, fried chicken/bacon combo. My preference is for a purer flavour profile, abc combining beef and chicken cancels out some of the strengths each of them has individually. It can work in the right flavour mix, so I’m not writing it off yet.
In saying that, both the beef and chicken at Happy Ending is among the best around.
My favourite burgers from Happy Ending have been chicken burgers. Crispy and spicy thigh, matched up with sweet kaya butter. Spicy chicken, sweet sauce. Of course it works.
The beef was cooked beautifully, pink throughout. It brought a deeper savoury aspect to the burger than it would normally have. For me it pushed against the story the burger was trying to tell.
Bacon was nice and crispy and there’s been a positive change in that respect from the early burgers I had here.
The quality of the ingredients pull this burger through. The straight up chicken with bacon would be a better option, unless you’re a triple threat connoisseur, and doubling the chicken would balance out what could be a burger with strong sweet element.
