At the same time, on November 17, FamilyMart also released "Fish Fry Burger" (168 yen including tax). Here, it seems that tartar sauce and sliced cheese are layered on fish fry and sandwiched between buns.
Coincidentally or inevitably, two "fish burgers" released on the same day. I decided to eat and compare them because it was a big deal!
● Is Lawson advantageous because the buns look delicious?
First, let's compare the visuals. Lawson's smooth, glossy buns and the tan color of the protruding fish fry are appetizing.
On the other hand, FamilyMart is a bun with plenty of white sesame seeds. A dark-colored fish fry is popping out from inside ... Somehow this fish looks big!
The overall size of FamilyMart is one size larger, and the height is about the same.
● Lawson is "Tara", FamilyMart is "White fish"
Excuse me for a moment, peel off the buns and look inside.
Lawson is sliced cheese layered with square fish fry and tartar sauce, sandwiched between fluffy buns. According to the raw material label, the fish fried fish is "tara".
On the other hand, FamilyMart is made by layering sliced cheese and tartar sauce on "fried white fish" and sandwiching it with white sesame buns. The fish fry batter seems to be seasoned with sauce.
The fish fry that I thought was a long fish was a two-piece fry that was cut! What a hell!
Well, it's good because the volume feeling doesn't change anyway.
By the way, the displayed calories per meal are 404 kcal for Lawson and 353 kcal for FamilyMart.
● The taste seems to be different
Let's finally eat and compare. Lawson's package says to heat it in the microwave before eating, but FamilyMart has no particular instructions. However, this time I want to eat and compare under the same conditions, so I will chin for less than 1 minute in both cases.
First of all, Agri Lawson's fish burger. The buns are fluffy and will stick to your teeth when you chew. The taste of the buns is a supporting role (quite modest), so the sweetness of the tartar sauce is what you feel strongly when you bite.
The tartar sauce contains onions, pickles, and chopped boiled eggs, but the taste is mainly the acidity of the pickles. If you are interested in this, may you be interested? It's crispy and chewy, and it's nice to have a salad feeling. The batter is moist, probably because the fish fry is warm. However, it has a good fragrance. The tatara wrapped in batter is soft and fluffy, and the sweet fat spreads deliciously as you chew.
Then, I put on Famima's fish fry burger. The first thing you will notice is the fragrant sesame buns flavor. It has a fluffy elasticity that seems to contain more air than Lawson, and it is crisp and crisp.
Like Lawson, the tartar sauce contains chopped onions and boiled eggs. It seems that pickles are also included, but the taste is less sour than Lawson and it has a sweet finish. Also, although fish fry has a lot of mass, it's a little disappointing that the sweetness of the sauce is stronger than the taste of fish because the sauce is soaked in the batter.
In both cases, tartar sauce was the decisive factor in the taste (Famima also used clothing sauce), and I couldn't deny the feeling that cheese wasn't showing its true potential.
● I (the author) prefer Famima at 2: 1
So the conclusion I tried to compare was ...
I prefer FamilyMart for buns and tartar sauce, and Lawson for fish fry.
FamilyMart was the winner in two factors, so this time FamilyMart was better off. Of course, it's my personal preference.
However, in both cases, the product name is "Fish Burger", that is, fish is the main character . With that in mind, it was Lawson who enjoyed the taste of fish more. Nonetheless, both were delicious, so please compare the taste reviews, prices, calories, etc. that I told you this time, and try the one that is close to your taste! Of course, I think it's interesting to buy both and compare them.
