Quite a few Krakow residents have visited MAX Burgers in Krakow
Delicious burger, but without the “wow effect”
At the entrance we are greeted by the staff who immediately express a willingness to help. When asked if this was our first visit to MAX Burgers, we say yes. The lady is moving with us A short interview about our preferences and together we choose the option that meets our expectations.
By the way, we ask about the menu for people who do not eat meat. The Swedish restaurant chain offers a wonderful meatless product – Delifresh Plant Beef. Its recipe is based on plant protein, making Delifresh Plant Beef look and taste like meat. This is an important step in reducing the impact of the network on the climate. This is what distinguishes Max Burger from other fast food restaurants.
For us, meat-free burgers are actually the third equal product platform. Jonas Martinsson, formerly a chef at the Swedish royal court, is responsible for their taste, so he has all the competencies when it comes to creating unique flavor combinations – emphasizes Public Relations Director Dominic Zolovsky.
MAX Burgers has a wide selection of veggie burgers as well as many customization options
Although the restaurant was very crowded, ordering was going very smoothly. After only two to three minutes, we pick up our kit and go to the table.
The burger was delicious It did not stand out from the sandwiches from other fast food restaurants. The vegetables were fresh, the meat was tender and well cooked, but a bit chewy. The fries were very thin but refrigerated which made them very thin They have lost their crunchy taste and definitely lost their flavour. The set also included a sauce, the taste of which can be chosen according to your preferences at the ordering stage. We decided to go to the classics and decided on the so-called “original”. It looked like ketchup mixed with mayonnaise, and was very greasy. It is worth adding this to french fries We didn’t get extra ketchup, it’s usually included in the price at other restaurants.
The set we ordered from Max Burger
The price of this set is 22.75 PLN. For comparison, at McDonald’s we will pay 22.20 PLN for the set: French fries + drink + Big Mac, so the costs are the same.
In our opinion, if you want a high-quality burger, It is better to go to a restaurant that is the opposite of fast food, Because we will only pay a few zlotys more, and We will eat in completely different and more comfortable conditions.
What are the other prices for Max Burger? As you can see, we chose one of the cheapest collections presented. Most of them cost about 27-28 PLN.
Max Burger menu
Summing up Max Burger’s visit to Krakow, We didn’t get out of there hungry. Given that there were quite a few people at the opening, There was a slight mess in the room. Guests were looking for free tables, wandering the alleys – which certainly disturbed the comfort of eating.
