Nothing like a scrumptious juicy burger to satisfy my sinful cravings for beef, pulled pork and juicy meats

Lil' wonder why this is Amsterdam's most famous burger place. What less can you expect when the buns (sourced from Tiong Bahru Bakery) were toasted-to-crisp in an oven - no butter involved and what you get is the fragrant sesame aroma, crisp toast and not-at-all oily/cloying bun (Note: Some burger places grill it on the underside with butter). The beef patties were incredibly juicy and flavoursome - grilled only to medium, in line with Lombardo's motto "eating meat well done is like kissing your sister" (i.e. plain gross!) Here's featuring the Dutch Cheese Burger, topped with red wine onions which were incredibly appetising. If you're conscious of onion breath, you've little worries because onion-hater like me actually loved it because of it's onion-less 'stench'. They were well marinated and any possibility of 'onion' breath or bad onion after-taste was quelled. What you get, is really the sweet-tasting & crunch of the onions to complement the juicy beef patty. Also, the marinated tomatoes are worth of mention too - nothing like raw, boring tomato slices but marinated as well. I particularly love the whole-baby pickles. Yes - WHOLE pickles, baby sized - really cute and crunchy. Last but not least, the homemade burger sauce in orange is the winning concoction of their secret recipe - slight tangy and too secretive for me to be able to pinpoint other ingredients that had gone into it. All I can say is, it's the perfect combination to their perfect burger.

$8 | Thick-cut fries with lemon zest, served with homemade mayo.

‘Just the right level of thickness - every bite was a great balance of crisp and potato-ey fluff. The hint of lemon was mild, best tasted when you’ve the fries plain (ie, no mayo dip!)

🦀A seafood lover’s burger with pretty strong seafoody taste (from the mentaiko and fish roe bits). The soft shell crab was fried to a nice crispy touch and sandwiches between brioche buns slathered with a good amount of mentaiko sauce. The pillowy buns nicely complemented the crispy soft shell crab in terms of texture and...taste too! Cos the crab, when eaten on its own, was a tad too salty - according to the boyfriend. The thick cut fries could have been crispier, or replaced with potato cuts. It was a lil’ soggy for most but then again I guess the highlight and deal here’s the soft shell crab and buns, instead of the fries right?

“Get this if you’re a cheese lover!” recommends the waitress. And so I did! Verdict: hmms...the additional cheese portion comes with a bowl of cheese which you can dip your burger and fries (nacho cheese fries!) - a pretty good deal if you like nacho cheese. Personally, I prefer the melty cheeses in burgers, not the more liquidy version of nacho cheese (never a fan of nachos). I’d expected melty cheddar but it wasn’t! 😔 nevertheless, the nacho cheese dip served me well - I dunked my fries into it and it was a good portion for 2 servings of fries! The charcoal bun added an aesthetic touch to the burger but it was a lil’ more stiff than their brioche. Beef patty was cooked to a nice medium, with bacon well done & cheese nicely melted. A very, very sinful meal and a pretty good deal with no service charge and gst!

Huuuuyayy! I was exceptionally excited to try their signature baby HUEY- the most ‘basic’ beef burger on the menu with Tasmanian beef patty (cooked to medium) + spiced mayo + ketchup + cheese. Particularly loved how their mayo is very much orangey - made in house and of course, is not the white mayo you find typically. Their ketchup was made in-house too! Deep dark red, slightly smoky- I almost mistook it for BBQ sauce. It pairs up really nicely with the fries- skin-on whole potatoes in strips. 🍟 really hearty and crispy!!
Incredibly value for $$$ deal with Burpple beyond! All the above at just $32NETT.

I’m a milkshake convert! ‘Was never a fan of milkshake because it’s so heavy, filling and seems incredibly jelat. ‘Especially when it’s mixed with really low end ice cream - it feels like you’re forcing down gulps and gulps of torture down your throat. Not worth the calories! BUT THIS WAS MIND MINDBLOWING! It’s added with a scoop of Madagascan vanilla ice cream that elevated the ‘class’ of a milkshake! It’s so satisfying to take in that strong vanilla fragrance with each mouthful without any hints of eeeeky vanilla essence. It’s so legit - you can spot tiny black speckles of vanilla beans if you stare hard enough! There’s the option to do without the whip cream. I had a taste of the whip cream on its own - nothing fanciful and I’d say, not worth the calories! I’d spend the calories on another cup of milkshake instead 🙊

Cute lil’ burgs sandwiched between nicely toasted mini sesame bun, melted cheddar and and few slices of jalapeños. Could do w a lil’ dressing - be it mustard or ketchup or chilli sauce (it came plain) and options of doneness too. It was fully cooked! Nevertheless, still good to satisfy the burg craving. $16++ for 3 (missing 1 in the pic cos it was devoured bef a close-up shot was taken)

Love the presentation of the lobster burger in a pasta dish, sat on top of a bed of fries. Each chunky lobster was sweet in taste, and well coated in miso mayo. The sesame seed bun was lightly toasted on the underside and at the top as well, therefore providing a slight crunch as you cut into it. The mix of veggies between the bun added another layer of brunch texture to the bite. Every mouthful was so delightful! It’s kinda pricy at >$34++ but I guess it kinda justified the quality and portion. Oo, and the ambience was great too! Particularly loved how the outlet at downtown had really high ceilings!

PS: In the latest visit, the lobster burger didn’t come in such presentation anymore! It’s simply on a plate with fries on the side...
Not sure if it’s me but I guess the presentation was given a discount, and so was the taste!

Sub-par food which is pretty disappointing. The burger patty was premade and for some reason couldn’t be cooked to anything other that complete doneness. Turns out the beef patty wasn’t 100% pure beef - but marinated with odd spices which doesn’t quite complement. The cheese within the beef patty was the typical store-bought cheddar which was again disappointing. Pizza was nothing to shout about too. Definitely not visiting again.

At $11.90, this burger certainly did not come cheap. Neither was it expensive tho! Considering....the perfectly toasted brioche buns are crisp on the outside and soft within! Just take a look at the fluffy airy pockets within the bun. At first look, the buns looked incredibly familiar - ah-ha! Turns out they’ve ordered the buns from Michelin-starred Burnt Ends! Little wonder the buns tasted so good on its own too. The thick, creamy scrambled eggs and smoked duck did justice to the buns. Rich and flavourful, the smoked duck drizzled with Hosin sauce added a layer of savoury note to the scrambled eggs. I found the Hosin a little too sweet but for those who seeks a strong sweet and salty complement, this is certainly the one to try! Oh, and it comes with a slice of cheddar as well but the scrambled eggy goodness and strong smoked duck flavours overpowered the cheddar taste. I’d definitely consider the bacon and eggs in future & hopefully, there’s a stronger cheddary taste to that!

The Quarters’ burgers always bring about pleasant mod-sin surprises. I’d expected the “spiced” pork batty to come with the typical 5-spices powder (which I absolutely dislike) but hey no! The spices include chilli, galangal, lemongrass etc. More towards the spices commonly used in Malay/Indonesia/Indian cuisine, rather than those in the Chinese dishes. That’s a pretty nice twist. At first look, it appears incredibly tough and dry. Thankfully, it remains juicy within. Could have been juicier but no complaints - overall was good. It comes with the typical iceberg lettuce and tomatoes. Generally prefer the red/green leaf lettuce which complements the burgers a lot more (kinda feel iceberg lettuce cheapens the overall look and feel of the burger cos it’s very much associated with ‘fastfood’ style burgers) The accompanying fries were normal-tasting, dips (chilli and ketchup) weren’t made in-house and hence, nothing much to comment on. Would stick with the signature salted chicken burger which comes with incredibly creamy and fragrant in-house salted egg yolk sauce going forward!

Tried this before Burnt Ends was awarded the Michelin Star 🌟 and I’m can fully understand why! This was their signature burger - perfectly toasted sesame buns in richly marinated pulled pork and melted cheddar. It was pretty addictive! Pulled Pork was executed nicely, easily pulled apart by the fork (just for testing. I ate my burg w my hands) and not overly sweet nor salty. Even my dad who isn’t a fan of burgs gave his nod of approval!
