Nothing beats a good burger for dinner. And with comfort food on the menu lately, these burgers were a must. The satay sauce makes a HEAP and I wasnt really thinking so straight, so it didnt occur to me to put it in a container. But its a tasty difference on a traditional burger. I quite liked these, went down well and as far as I am concerned, satay anything is good!
