Smoky Grill’d chicken, launched late last year, has been a hit with KFC Fans from the very beginning. A new, limited time burger for the same Smoky Grill’d line, has been launched at the end of March, and like every burger at KFC, this too is “Finger lickin’ good.”
Stepping away from the large and crispy burgers that we all associate KFC with, this new Smoky Grill’d Burger is the complete opposite and has absolutely no crisp, or coating. Catering to the South Asian taste palate, which prefer lots of smoky and spicy flavours, this new innovation is just what we needed!
The new burger gives a punch bigger than any other burger on the menu, which makes it a must-try the next time you are at KFC.
The preparation starts with two beautifully toasted burger buns lines with KFC’s own mayo, which provides the signature KFC taste — not too tangy, but with the right amount of heat. Next, the buns are garnished with freshly cut lettuce, which works well to balance the creaminess with its slight crunch, and prevents it from becoming a soggy bite.
The grilled chicken fillet is flavourful to the core, and smoky bursts are what you get with every bite, which is the result of a long marinating procedure; this also makes it super soft. Picking up the bun, you can see the charred grill marks on top, which leaves a nice smoky aroma.
Overall, the Smoky Grill’d Burger stands out and differentiates itself from the rest with its incredible juiciness and the tantalising sauces that complement it. Very competitively priced at Tk 299, its really worth a try!
While the burger itself is not too hot or spicy, if you do feel like you need to cool down a little and have a friend with you, take up the offer of 2 Krushers for Tk 250 from the Dairy Krushers line (excluding Choco Lash).
For something lighter, there are always the sparkling Krushers.
