Apparently, in the three months I haven’t been to Half Pound, the management has changed, and with it, the menu. The signature Half Pound Burger is still there, but with a few changes.

The pickled daikon that worked wonders before has been dumped for a pineapple ring. The pineapple ring, unfortunately, wasn’t grilled and as such, the sweetness within was relatively non-existent. It did add a bit of bite and crunch to the burger, but it wasn’t as clean and crunchy as the daikon before.

Unfortunately, the one thing they failed to change was one of the original hang ups I had with the old recipe: they threw raw onions into the burger instead of sautéing the onions till they were charmingly caramelized before slapping it onto the burger. All burger joints please take note: don’t just pound your meat, sauté your onions before putting it on your burger, for the love of Christ.

The beetroot slaw, however, was a genius addition to the burger, as it’s crunchy texture was worthy of replacing its daikon predecessor, and the sharpness of the beet brought a zest and additional dimension to the savory burger that was a pleasant surprise.

The charcoal buns are a purely cosmetic change, as they neither added nor subtracted from the overall flavor of the burger. As for the rest of the burger, it’s pretty much stayed the same. The juicy half pound ground beef patty is still the same one I enjoyed pounding away at previously, and the candied bacon strips are still gloriously indulgent.

The butter sauce did seem a touch less rich than previously, but it still serves to add a rich, velvety texture to the whole burger. More importantly, it lubricates the burger excellently for the frenetic pounding that is to come.

The meat was tender and well-cooked however I found the meat jus to be a touch too herbal, so much so that someone remarked it tasted like bak kut teh.

Saw this at the next table, had to get it, because pimped up Ramly burger.

220g of beef patty wrapped in omelette and jizzed over with chilli sauce and mayonnaise. I didn’t particularly pay notice to the accoutrements of sliced cheese, cabbage, lettuce, tomato, red onion and pineapple(??). To be honest they could have done away with most of those things and let the patty stand on its own.

The burger was served with a side of fries and Half Pound’s signature butter sauce. I didn’t know what to make of the sweet caramel-y liquid which brought to mind the cloying aroma of a bucket of Garrett’s popcorn, but hey, it grew on me the more I ate it and I found myself repeatedly dunking my fries into the sauce pot for that addictive combination of sweet and salty.

This rendition impressed with a strong hit of laksa flavour and most of the trappings of a traditional laksa including spongy tau pok, crunchy bean sprouts, fishcake and tiger prawns. What I appreciated most was that the dry-style sauce was the perfect consistency and coated every single strand evenly with its subtly spicy, coconut-y deliciousness.

You'd think a place like Half Pound would only have good burgers, but this plate of pasta is here to prove you wrong! With a laksa pasta, we were expecting a strong hit of laksa leaves and it delivered! Generous with the seafood too, this dry-style laksa spaghetti was a hit at our table. 🍝
