What makes KGB’s burgers such a killer is the powerful and punchy flavours in each creation. Patties here are juicy and well-seasoned, and paired with an interesting assortment of ingredients. Two methods of cooking the patties are available here: 1) crust seared, which gives an extra flavourful crunchy crust while still retaining juiciness, and 2) the normal grilled patties. Some of the best-sellers here would be the Bash, Bella Bomb Tower, Truffle’d Swiss Mushroom, and Tornado. What are burgers without fries and milkshakes? KGB does well in both aspects.
