Potato buns at Burger King
2019 continues to be the year Burger King doles out unique flavour combinations. Case in point: their wildly popular Truffle Mayo burgers and Mala Stackers. Capping off the hat trick are the Double Cheeseburger and Tendergrill® Chicken which now come with fluffy potato buns!
Although they’re available from 27 August 2019, we managed to taste these burgs before launch day. TL;DR, the potato buns were extremely soft and fluffy, and paired really well with BK’s flame-grilled meats.

Since the patties and cheese are arranged alternately, you’ll taste creamy notes—courtesy of the gooey cheese—in the beef. This leads to a greater depth of flavours in each bite.
The fluffiness of the buns was a star player here; they absorbed the patties’ meaty juices without losing their plumpness, and contrasted nicely against the crisp lettuce.
These potato buns are also found in the Tendergrill® Chicken, which swaps out the beef patties for
