Review: Burger King - Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger

Burger King's Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger features spicy Sriracha sauce, two flame-grilled beef patties, American cheese, lettuce, and onions on a toasted hoagie bun.

My local Burger King has them for $3.69 or two for $5.

Bereft on the usual ketchup and mayo, the Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger comes instead with a dousing of watery hot sauce. It was light on flavor with a decent stinging heat and a fermented vinegary tang that reminded me more of Korean gochujang than Sriracha.

The relatively mild flavor allowed the other ingredients to come across more. Particularly, the thin, charred beefiness showed up and combined nicely with the melted cheese.

The lettuce and onions were pretty much covered in sauce and a little soggy as a result.

The toasting on the bun was very light, leaving a soft sponginess.

Overall, Burger King's Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger was fairly decent and a bit messy due to the sauce. Their Sriracha delivered just enough to get by on but didn't quite capture the essence of the sauce. Still, it pushed the other ingredients to the front and offered somewhat of a kick.
