I also think that after reading reviews on these burgers, people could easily be swayed as to which restaurant to go to even though some people may have different tastes. I loved ostrich, but hated goat. It also means people may go to the good ones so they get more votes or people may have thought it was average but after reading reviews, may have changed their minds.
Which burgers have you tried out of the Wellington On A Plate Best Burger in Wellington, how would you rate it?
We tried One80's Awestrickin Ostrich Burger and it was great. This restaurant is on the 7th floor at the Copthorne Hotel on Oriental Parade. There were hardly any other diners there, mind you, given the prices of most other items on the menu, it is hardly surprising. Most people probably eat out or in their hotel room. The burger cost $25 and came as an open burger. I got mine without the beetroot chutney, but it was still amazing with a big thick Ostrich pattie and bacon. The bacon made it a little salty, but the meat tasted amazing and the fries were neatly presented in the mini fryers for a nice touch. We all rated this highly and the people at the Wellingtonian newspaper who are also doing reviews did too.
The next one I tried was at Hop Garden and was goat. It only cost $18, but I wouldn't have paid any more for it. Unfortunately they ran out of the buns, but the bread they served with it didn't improve how it tasted. I thought I was brave eating ostrich on Friday night, but eating Moroccan spiced goat with aubergine, couscous and harissa sauce among other things was something I regretted. I rated it 5/10.
