Oh. Mah. Gawd. Becky. Look at that burger. It’s so big, it looks like one of those fat guy’s burgers. And yes, I am indescribably delighted to be guts deep in this beauty of a burger. Simply (and sorta underwhelmingly) titled as the ‘Southern Fried Chicken Burger’ ($20++), this brilliant burger is a front runner for ‘best damn burger in Singapore’.

What I assume to be a whole, jumbo sized thigh fillet from and extra thick chicken is jammed between a pair of fluffy, bouncy buns and generously lubricated by a judicious application of liquid cheese and decorated by a leaf of lettuce and a slice of tomato. The batter that the chicken is cocooned in is light and charmingly crispy, and the chicken is slightly spicy, but seasoned to savory satisfaction and is outstandingly juicy.

This is a tasty burger, and it’s one hell of a messy one too. Take this hot meat between your lips, and soon that warm cheese is gonna squirt everywhere as you futilely fight to maintain a modicum or modesty. Make sure you’ve got an army of napkins on deck, cause this bad boy is going to rock your world and leave a massive mess.

The sides are a little unconventional, as cornbread isn’t really a burger’s best buddy, and the purple slaw would be what you’d expect to see on the burger itself. Instead, you’d expect to see both elements as the supporting squad to a amply sized rack of ribs, or some fabulous fried chicken. However, they work wonders here. The cornbread was pleasantly sweet without overdoing it, and was temptingly moist. The slaw was also sweet without going overboard, but with that all important edge of acidity to take some of the richness off the burger.

The only complaint I had was that there wasn’t nearly enough slaw to go round, as the pleasurable palate profile and the addictive crunchiness of the coleslaw made it a ride you never wanted to end.

Pair it up with a pint of beer from the tap ($9.90 all day, son), or two glasses of crisp Chardonnay for $16 if you’re feelin’ fancy. That’s Gucci Gang right there, right in the G spot.

😊

The mini cake in the Southern Fried Chicken Burger is weirdly crumbly, so is the fries. Cheese in the fries tastes weird..my olfactory glands keep telling me it's old mouldy rags.. The chicken in the Southern Fried Chicken Burger was however juicy enough. The poke bowl is quite tasteless.. Umami Omega is still better is their standards are the same. Although portion wise it seems to have shrinked.🙁 Having tt one poke bowl is now not sufficient.

Choc Mousse cake has a strong cinammon taste in the crust. The cute choc beans were a fun addition. Can't really go v wrong with choc cakes 😊

Alter ego has several games for ppl to play. We played the jenga😊 Heard there are variations where each block has a qn and if u pick that you have to ans tt. Sounds really fun!

What happened to the food at alter ego i used to rave abt? 😔 Time for some review pls!

✔Southern fried chicken burger: Tender juicy fried chicken in brioche bun (strong garlic taste which I like). Who can deny this when it is loaded w cheese?
✔Legendary Rendang Grilled cheese: After being impressed by their short rib, I decided to try this dish. Unfortunately, although I like this dish, it fell short of my expectation. This was not as juicy as the shortrib's.
✔Pizza fries: Saw reviews that this was 'finger-licking good' and 'addictive'. But no, it was soggy from the cheese and not crispy even when it was piping hot. The bacon sauce was decent though.
✔Ginger Mi-softly: Ginger miso salmon w subtle ginger taste. Portion has drastically reduced since my last visit. And they changed the bowl size. Pretty blend.
✔Har cheong chicken: I like how it was crispy and the har cheong taste was not too overpowering.

Overall: ❤❤❤(❤) Was expecting much more from this restaurant when I have had a good dining experience with them previously.

This Chilli Cheese Dog consists of a grilled cheddar sausage topped with house made beef mince, sour cream and cheddar nestled nicely in a bun, accompanied by purple slaw and curly fries which was really addictive. Sounds like a meal befitting of a TGIF! ☺️

Was a little apprehensive when I ordered it because I wasn’t sure how the combination was gonna turn out but this is now one of my favourite dish here! This curry salted egg yolk fries are doused with an extremely generous ⁣serving of sauce, I actually still have sauce left after all the fries were gone, can you believe that? It usually works the other way round in other shops! As with any other salted egg related products, these fries here are really addictive so be warned, waistline in danger. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
