Omakase Burger revisited

picture from Omakase Burger, not mine

So, it seems that the flavour of the month here is their foie gras burger. That's the product picture above from their social media by the way.

As much as I had anticipated the misrepresentation that they did advertising it, the appearances still had me taken aback a little. Foie gras flavour? Sure - the word to describe the strength of that flavours is 'residual'. It was still a pretty well done thing with the juicy & beefy medium done patty that had tongues wagging when they first opened up. It's never going to win any semblance of an award for being a foie gras burger. Not by any stretch.

Now, the Mexican coke that they have. It tasted like the regular thing. Maybe the sweetness wasn't as cloying. Can't really tell.

Foie gras isn't exactly cheap and Omakase Burger also never priced themselves at what could be construed as basic level cheap already in the first place. This creates a predicament. Where a balance between keeping the liver amount "manicured" and maintain what is perceived to be a sweet spot for the price tag or - put enough of the gras that no one should ever doubt it for what it is with at the risk of a cost that will turn people away. What a pickle eh?

I think the coke likely tastes the same because what we have in singapore is also made with sugar, whereas the emphasis on mexican coke is likely made in countries where they use other sweeteners.
