Update: These are not the original AusKobe patties, these are Sultan Center’s own brand. That explains why they don’t stock AusKobe anymore, and why this one is so much cheaper.
These wagyu beef burgers used to cost KD 1.950 a patty some 2-3 year ago. Up from KD 1.150-1.250 7-10 years prior. That meant it wasn’t worth buying those frozen patties, when you could get fresh ones at KD 2.5 a piece.
I’m glad to inform you that they’re back to a very reasonable and affordable price of 990 fils.
Here’s a [link] to Mark’s review of the burgers from 8 years ago. How time flies. Anyways, the review is still spot on. They are still the best burgers to have, if you don’t count getting fresh ones.
And honestly, haven’t we all been in that tight spot looking trying to find something gourmet-ish to cook at a minute’s notice? If you know what I mean, then these bad boys are for you. They go from freezer to pan in a snap. Mark cooks them on 5 minutes 4 times intervals. I personally prefer them on a 3 minutes 4 times rotation.
Either way, go snag a dozen of these to cook over the Eid holidays (Thank you sir, that’ll be KD 12). I recommend a pan not a BBQ grill, just because the BBQ is too hot for them and you want them juicy and moist. Plus, you get the added bonus of grilling opinions if you do it over a pan.
I found them at the freezers in The Sultan Center a few days ago.
If you would rather have this beef cooked for you at a restaurant, then you can’t go wrong with the “Roma” burger with Mushroom sauce at Open Flame Kitchen in 360° mall (KD 10-12 I’m not sure) or make your own burger at the Burger Boutique in Al-Rayya mall (maybe KD 5-ish?… But also make sure you pick the portabello mushroom sauce).
