We got recommended for this cocktail and decided to give it shot. It came with the ice cube grapefruit juice, which is awesome, diluting the gin slowly and smoothly.

This is one of the least-popular dishes on the menu, as our server confided in us after our meal. Judging by how good the roll was, we couldn’t for the life of us figure out why. Guess everyone passes this over in favour of the more luxuriant lobster roll.

The buta roll consists of 150g grilled pork belly, pork collar and baked bacon, with house-made pickled daikon, grated yama-wasabi and house-made tare wedged between a lightly buttered and toasted bread roll. Our server shared that the Yama-wasabi was specially sourced, and only grows in high altitude regions. It had a lighter flavour than regular wasabi, without any of the nasal-cleansing explosions associated with wasabi, and provided a little sweetness to offset the savoury flavours of the pork. The meat was grilled to perfection, and the bread roll was fluffy and soft. I liked that the bread was only lightly buttered so as not to obscure the taste of the meat!

Unlike the burgers, the rolls come with a side of truffle fries topped with grated Parmesan cheese. I wouldn’t place a separate order for these truffle fries as I didn’t enjoy them much. They were a little on the soft side, but what was good about these was that the truffle smell wasn’t overpowering. If their fries were crispier, these would probably have tasted a lot better.

We loved how the buta roll came together. In fact, I actually liked this more than the burger as I found it extremely well balanced. Our server candidly shared that since this was one of the least ordered items on the menu, her boss actually wanted to remove it but the dish stayed on as it’s her boss’s wife’s favourite dish on the menu! She personally found it one of the best items on the menu as well, and admitted that the staff are always very happy when someone orders the buta roll. I think this roll deserves to stay on in the menu for sure. If you’re visiting BurgerLabo, why not give it a try and make the staff happy? :)

Personally #mypick was this Thai Essence (1st photo) which was strong but pleasant as you get to indulge in the diverse flavours that Thai rice has but all in a glass of whiskey. Aroy makkk!!!

A chicken burger designed by Michelin-award winning chef Julien Royer - 160g of french poulet boneless leg marinated in yoghurt & spices, topped with a free range egg, house made garlic sauce and ‘Frenchie’ salsa.

I had high expectations of this burger from the get-go, and thankfully they were pretty much met. The chicken leg was grilled to perfection, emanating a smokey aroma, while retaining its tenderness. Each bite was succulent, and was a delight to eat with the garlic sauce. I loved that the garlic sauce didn’t overpower the chicken, but instead complemented it. The fried egg is also perfect for those who love yolky ooze, the yolk bursts open and slathers the patty and burger. Eating this is a messy business, so don’t order this on your first date. But if you’re settled in your relationship, throw all caution to the win and enjoy this bad boy.

The only thing I didn’t like about this burger was the burger bun. I felt it was too thin, with too much crust to bun - causing it to feel dry. I would’ve preferred this over a more luxuriant fluffy bread like brioche, but to each his own!

The great thing about BurgerLabo is how attentive the staff are - our waitress returned regularly to top up our water and even sweetly asked for honest feedback after our meal. She took the time to listen to what we liked or didn’t like, and explained the different components of the dishes. BurgerLabo wasn’t crowded at all on Thursday night, but who knows when business might pick up. For now though, it’s a fantastic place for a chill weekday dinner close to nature with a good burger or roll!

Try the old fashioned done with sake instead of whiskey 😉

It is a La Zi Ji (Sichuan Chilli Chicken) dish with some crispy you tiao drizzled with maple syrup. I can't associate it with the so called chicken and waffle inspiration. Putting the ranting aside, the dish itself is very enjoyable with the spicy kick from the Sichuan peppercorn. The diced chicken which has been deep fried to golden brown was also tender and addictive.

✨Another winner of Singapore’s night scene: @manhattan_sg !🌟 They clinched 3rd on @worldsbestbars awards and best bar in Asia🤩! Similar vibes to atlas (designed by HASSELL as well) : their interior is inspired by the luxurious golden era of New York - with use of dark leather and modern intricate gold detailing. The menu is a depiction of time-travelling back into he 16th century with curated cocktails and artisanal drinks with the flip into the next century 🥃⏱ the highlight of the bar is their in-house Rickhouse which houses barrels of aged cocktails and whisky ( absolutely one of a kind💰). Don’t underestimate the size of this place from the exterior: they have private rooms for elites(which obviously I can’t get in)😂 for people who appreciates design and curation, it is a place to visit at least once🌝 just to soak up that golden classic vibes✨ if not, it is really THE hangout spot for the crazy rich asians/expats🙈

Malindi Halwa ($10) is a dessert you and I may not have heard of, but it certainly piqued my interest.

Halwa, or Halva(h), is the general term for a dense, sweet confection found across different geographical locations and cultures, notably the Middle East, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent.

I believe Kafe Utu's interpretation is that of East African halwa, a gelatinous flour-based dessert typically prepared with tapioca starch and/or cornstarch. True to its roots, these oblong blocks of Swahili "mochi" are made with dragon fruit juice (hence the vibrancy), hazelnuts, cashew nuts, macadamia, pistachio, and Malindi spices.

The floral sweetness was a bit much for me, although it was slightly offset by the light coconut yogurt and dukkah filo. Nonetheless, its mochi-like texture would definitely appeal to fans of kueh lapis sagu (9-layer kueh), or any Nyonya kueh of the bouncy, gummy variety.

The melty gooey cheese flaunts a perfect combination with the crispy toasted sourdough, and with its flavours further enhanced by the strong truffle fragrance from the truffle brie.
