Johnny Rockets Couple: Lobster & Wagyu Burger?

Yes, you read that right! For the first time, at least in my life (and my wife’s too), we saw a Wagyu Burger and a serving of lobster together as one meal – only at Johnny Rockets!

Not to say that it’s bad company, it’s just that we never thought about the two getting together beforehand. Anyhow, it’s done! 🙂

Lobster Wagyu Burger

Johnny Rockets got a little more creative in thinking of new ways to serve good burgers to their customers. With wagyu burger‘s high quality and premium taste, the idea of pairing it up with a serving of lobster is actually not a far-fetched idea.

The Verdict

And so it was. Seats For Two was invited to the Johnny Rockets Lobster Wagyu Burger food tasting at their Eastwood Mall branch. It was quite far from our place, albeit also in Quezon City, but we manage to turn to this side of town form time to time.

The first impression was great – it was a visual treat – the big burger is oozing with the delectable-looking grilled wagyu beef patty while half-a-lobster is waving right in front of you.

Its other half was not so fortunate to have been chopped and mixed wonderfully like a coleslaw and placed atop the burger in between the buns.

I had a bite of the wagyu burger first and it was good!

The second bite was able to dig in deeper and I got a full taste of the creamy grounded lobster mix right on top of it. It went very well with the wagyu beef! It was the best part for me.

The natural cut fries on the side was also crisp and good and provided that break from the wagyu-lobster tandem when you want to.

The Lobster Wagyu Burger meal was big enough to fill me up and the remaining half-lobster was a final treat. My wife was not able to finish hers for it’s sheer size so we had it to-go.

If there was anything I least like in the Lobster Wagyu Burger, it would be the plain buns. I just felt that the wagyu and the lobster was in the premium sphere and that it wouldn’t hurt if the burger buns were also at par.

But then again, overall, the meal was very good; even apart from the retro-dance performances of the crew.

The Price

At P900++,  this is not something you can order quite often. But you shouldn’t also expect combining Wagyu beef and lobster to go anywhere less than Php 500 or Php 600, right? So, although the P900+ price tag is a bit high, it was almost justifiable. “Almost,” because I think ordinary consumers might have a hard time swallowing that amount in one meal.

Some may even argue that you can already get a buffet meal somewhere nearby. All else said, I’d still suggest that you go and try Johnny RocketsLobstar Wagyu Burger; it’s not everyday you see the two go hand-in-hand. I say it’s worth the try at least once.

Apart from their burgers, Johnny Rockets is also known for their creamy milkshakes. So although I am not a ‘wasabi‘ person, I dared try their new Wasabi Milkshake.

And so I did. As expected, anything ‘wasabi‘ is not for me. But if you are a wasabi lover, there is a high chance you would love it as it really has that ‘wasabi‘ aftertaste kick (in a good way) at the back of the throat. 🙂
