China's first outlet for the Santa Barbara burger chain goes into a ground-floor glass corner of Fuxing Soho. It's fastfood. They offer stuff like sandwiches and salads but the headline items are 'Charburgers.' Original, double, teriyaki, bbq bacon, mushroom and Santa Barbara Style varieties. That last one's a beef patty with roast garlic aioli and cheese between two slices of toast. There're only 2 "menus" available; the Original (#1) and Original Double (#2). For all the other burgers, you have to buy the coke and fries separately. Oh, and there's an option to add avocado to every single burger. Overall, pretty cheap. Pretty tasty.
A reason why I can’t become vegetarian- burgers. They are affordable, fulfilling, and perfect for anytime. Brunch, lunch, dinner, and late-night-supper. You name it, I’ll eat it.
Shanghai has several good spots that’s famous for their grilling and bun-ing game, and Habit is a new place I found in Jing’an which I just added in my “good burger list” (yes I update the list on my phone for burger).
Habit just opened here in Jing’an and it’s originated from the States. I passed by when the place is still renovating and decided to stop by again later. I surly made the right decision. The place is very clean and seats are comfortable, and like every fast food chain you can see through the kitchen.
I went for an Original Double Char set, which included fries and a regular drink (all you can drink). Seriously, I’m in love! The burger is juicy with two-patty stack slathered in melty cheese, and tucked with lettuce, pickles, and caramelized onions between a toasted bun. The crispy golden fries are thick and flavorful. Oh! Did I mention they have an open station where you can help yourself with all the sauces, jalapenos, chilly and lemon slices? They have plenty of choices including burger, sandwich, beer, milkshake and salad. And from what I’ve seen from other table the salad looks very decent as well. (Obviously I’ll take it as side with my beloved burger.) I looked it up on delivery apps and it’s not on it, so move now and get the burger yourself.
