Jade: Bitemyburger

Everyone I know loves a fat, juicy burger with a side of hot, salty fries. But like the elusive cupcake, a good burger is so difficult to come by. Granted the definition of good is hugely subjective, case in point Mc.D's prosperity burger. I was so full of hope having read countless reviews about this seasonal treat..only to have my bubble go 'pffffttttttttt' when I finally took a tentative bite: soggy buns check, patty that tasted like cardboard check, watery peppery brown liquid check. I mourned that night..for the unnecessary wasting of precious calories.

Rice burger with sweet potato wedges~ Because it's healthier and because I would rather stop talking for a week than look at another potato.

Half a cup cooked sushi rice, formed into patties and panfried till crispy

1 piece butterflied chicken thigh, grilled [ I marinated mine in worchestershire sauce, honey, smashed lemon grass and garlic]
Fresh lettuce, tossed in the pan juices from the chicken
some tomato slices
Kewpie mayo

Sweet potato, boiled to soften, tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted for 30 minutes

Assemble burger, and enjoy a non-soggy bun, perfectly juicy meat and crunchy veg that hasn't been lying at the back of someone's fridge for a month.


  1. Not worth the calories eh? Looks real good though...

  2. i loved mcd's prosperity burgers n look forward to eating them whenever they r on bc here they only serve it on cny. but this year, i was disappointed bc the sauce n burger were like what you described. n wow, i'm impressed tt you made your own rice burgers!
