The fact that KFC in the Philippines came up with this idea somehow seems un-American. Putting a slice of cheese on top of a sandwich should have been invented in the good ol' USA.
No country loves cheese and cheese-type products more than the United States. But either we've been afraid to put a slice of cheese on top of the sandwich or we haven't been creative enough. Neither answer is acceptable.
The Cheese Top Burger is a fried chicken patty with garlic Parmesan dressing along with the slice of melted cheese on top.
As much as we seem to love cheese, the cheese is always hiding in a sandwich. If you put enough items on a sandwich, is it possible that you wouldn't miss the cheese if someone took it out?
When I first tried the Double Down, I couldn't taste the cheese. I could tell I was eating cheese but what was in there added no flavor. Biting into the Cheese Top Burger, you would have to know the cheese was in there because you see it and the upper part of your mouth would come in contact with the cheese.
If food presentation is mostly visual, then why not have the cheese where we can see it.
I'm not the target audience for this sandwich because I don't usually get cheese on a sandwich (except for blue), I don't think chicken and cheese go together well, and this cheese looks too much like American cheese, which isn't really cheese at all.
But if you are really into cheese, then you should put your eyes where your money is, and buy a sandwich with cheese on top. Be proud of your love for cheese.
