Chicken & Black Pepper Mushroom Sauce Burgers

by Edwan S. on Thu, October 09, 2014

This burger is inspired from SS15 Subang Jaya’s The Burgershop. Adi, the proprietor, makes an awesome burger slathered in mushroom sauce. We decided to do our take on it. The result is a delicious, satisfying burger bursting with flavour!

Our tribute to The Burgershop SS15!

Serves 2 people

Use fresh button mushrooms for better flavour in the sauce.

Alternatively, you can use a beef or even lamb patty with this burger.
