If You Want a Burger Eat a Burger...

What'chu know about the J’s Ultimate Chuck Steak Burger? 🍔

I've really been craving burgers; and since I had the intention of dining at J’s Fresh Bar & Kitchen, or J’s for short, I decided to drag a friend of mine with me and kill two birds with one foodventure *ba dum tss* 🥁


They have branches in Karen and Westlands. But I love, love, LOOOOVE the Karen branch more simply because it’s a little quieter, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and it has a rooftop- I mean 🤷‍♀️ The music played at J’s plays a huge role in setting the hip mood that its popular for, also the it's loud enough for it to be enjoyable as well as for you to hold a coherent conversation.

Everyone knows that there’s nothing better than good food, good music and good conversation.

I really enjoy the rustic vibe that J's has going on. It reminds me of my days as a young camper in primary school. My favourite pieces were the woody cabin-like tables and benches with green accents, provided by the greenery around the restaurant. I could just see 12 year old me with a torch on my head and a plateful of food in front of me.

I got there right on time for lunch and I came for one thing and one thing only, the J’s Ultimate Chuck Steak Burger, that had seasoned beef mince, red onions, pickles, lettuce, barbeque sauce, cheese and served with homemade paprika fries.

The food was served on a wooden cutting board, which added to the rustic vibe of the restaurant and I thought it was pretty cool. Not everyday glass plates, sometimes we just want to eat off a chopping board.

And then I took a bite.

The trilogy of crunchy burger buns, crunchy pickles and a flawlessly grilled beef mince danced in my mouth. I couldn’t hide my excitement as the combination of juicy and crunchy formed a perfect symphony together. The juices from the beef mince caused an explosion in my mouth and some of it even slipped from the burger onto the wooden board. The paprika fries were similarly as crunchy and well-seasoned. However, they were too few, so I didn’t get to enjoy them as much as I wanted.


That was the first time I had a burger from J’s and I'm so excited to explore their menu. What do you guys like eating when you go to J's? Let me know :)
