Sushi burgers aren’t a new thing but they seemed to have captured the curiosity of the predominately Asian crowd of Box Hill. In a food court full of run of the mill Aussie Chinese and Canto options, Samurai Rice Burgers sticks out like a pair of runners worn with a suit.
As the name suggests, cooked white grains are packed and molded into mounds that resemble bun halves. In between, there’s an assortment of Japanese fillings from ebi tempura to teriyaki chicken or unagi then wrapped in a sheet of nori. Katsu curry is a great combo that is let down by a rather fatty chicken cutlet that leaves you questioning where the meat is and curry more being sweetly mild without any impact.
What is very likeable is the meal deals that along with the burger come with your choice of fries, wedges or chicken kaarage. Meat burger with a side of meat, that’s a winner.
