Speaking of avocado burgers, there is a strong impression that they are sold mainly at gourmet burger stores that originated overseas, such as "KUA AINA". At McDonald's, avocado sauce was used for the first time in the "Beverly Hills Burger" released in 2012, and the avocado filling was sandwiched in the luxury burger "Ruby Spark" sold for one day only in July 2013.
It seems that the avocado burger released this time contains diced avocado. Besides beef, there are 3 kinds of chicken and shrimp.
At the En-eating editorial department, three staff members who profess "I love avocado" sample three types of burgers. I tried to give a recommended ranking based on my own judgment and prejudice.
◆ 1st place: Beef
The recommended first place is "avocado beef". Beef patty, two savory bacon, cheddar cheese, onion slices, and wasabi sauce are sandwiched in a chewy ciabatta.
The point of evaluation is that each material is well-balanced. The avocado and beef go well together, and the onion slices accentuate the texture. Also, the horseradish sauce is tsundere but refreshing and goes well with avocado. You can enjoy the perfect balance of combinations while firmly feeling the taste of each material. "I want to repeat this," was well received.
By the way, the new face bun "Cibatta" used this time is a square bread born in Italy. It is said that "slippers" is the etymology in Italian. It is a simple bread that contains plenty of water and has a unique moist and chewy texture that spreads the flavor of the ingredients.
It has a simpler taste than the usual McDonald's buns and does not interfere with the taste of the ingredients. You can enjoy a slightly rich taste like a burger eaten at a bakery. It goes well with meat, so please pay attention to ciabatta when you eat it.
◆ 2nd place: Shrimp
The classic combination, "Avocado Shrimp," came in second. Shrimp and avocado are sandwiched in ciabatta. The feature is "Cobb salad sauce" which is a blend of 7 kinds of spices such as chili pepper, coriander leaf and black pepper.
◆ 3rd place: Chicken
The remaining "avocado chicken" is fried chicken and cheddar cheese sandwiched with avocado and Cobb salad sauce.
Although it is a very popular chicken in Japanese stores, it ranked third among avocado burgers. The reason is that the taste of avocado loses to chicken more than shrimp.
However, the chicken and Cobb salad sauce go very well with the chicken and ciabatta. I imagined that if the crispy texture of lettuce was added to this, I wouldn't need it. I want you to commercialize it in the form of a ciabatta version of "Chicken Crisp". How about McDonald's?
According to the McDonald's official page, "beef" is 470kcal, "shrimp" is 472kcal, and "chicken" is 543kcal. It's a little expensive because it contains avocado. However, the fat contained in avocado is an "unsaturated fatty acid" that can be expected to have the effect of smoothing blood, so you may not have to worry about it that much.
◆ There was a top
And here is another new product that I was interested in. The new McNugget sauce "Tomato & Herb Sauce" was also released on the 17th. Based on tomato paste, it seems that multiple herbs such as oregano and basil are used.
This new sauce was very delicious. You can feel the taste of tomatoes instead of ketchup, and the aroma is good because it contains plenty of herbs. "This seems to like women," said the rating, which surpassed the three burgers.
In addition, a new flavor of colorful drink "McFloro / McFizz" will be released on the 17th, and " Meat sauce burger " will be on sale from the 18th, and new products for Golden Week (GW) will appear. To do. It might be a good idea to try new products that are not like McDonald's in a sense.
