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.
