Hi there, thank you for your feedback. I checked with the restaurant, we use Foccacia flat bread for garlic bread, and Foccacia sesame bun for burger. Even they are baked in the same spice but the taste were different because of the dressing. All the dressing we use is homemade both for entree, main and dreset. Sorry to hear you are not very enjoying our recipe. Regards, Sally
