New Location, same great food (with a couple menu changes). This is the second location of the popular Asian-inspired burger joint created by ex-Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion chef, Lorin Watada, and family. The new spot is right next to the movie theater on Sahara and Ft. Apache. It looks to be larger than their original spot but only half of the dining room was being used the night I went.
The wife went with the kiki burger (an angus beef patty with sautéed mushrooms, caramelized bacon, sweet onion marmalade, Gruyere cheese, and garlic chili aioli) — always a good choice. New to the menu (at least since the last time I went to the original Bachi Burger) is their lobster roll ($15). It’s two mini buns stuffed with lobster mixed with fennel and a curry spiced aioli with lettuce. It may not be a traditional lobster roll flavor, but the curry creates a unique and tasty asian-inspired version of this classic. The freshly fried taro chips that accompany the dish were delicious as well.
Service was good, especially considering that the place just recently opened. Although it was odd that my wife’s burger came out several minutes before my food or our son’s food (he opted for the kid’s grilled cheese). But, I’m sure minor issues like that will improve over time. Bachi Burger has never been known for stellar service, but the food more than makes up for those deficiencies.
