Queued at Hambaobao on their 2nd last day. Even though I was early (went 30 mins before they opened), there was already quite the queue. It's my first time here, and I've bookmarked this place for a while now. The moment I heard they were closing down, I had to cancel my plans and make a trip down. I wouldn't want to give up an opportunity (possibly the final) to try their famous Pork Belly and Buah Keluak burgers. Thank God I went, because the burgers were gobsmackingly delicious. Especially the sio bak burger.

The Pork Belly burger was absolutely stacked full of pork belly slabs (4-5 slabs I believe). I kid you not, it's quite a mouthful- damn gao! At $5.50, you're definitely getting your money's worth. I never ever thought pork belly would go well on a burger, but Hambaobao proved me wrong. Shatteringly crisp, fatty, melt - in - your- mouth pork coupled with hoisin sauce, English mustard, Japanese cucumber to cut through the fattiness of the pork belly, sandwiched between toasty buttered hamburger buns. It's one of the best burgers I've ever tasted, and I'm genuinely quite saddened to know that I probably won't be having this again. You guys got to try this!

On to the Peranakan- inspired Buah Keluak burger ($5). It was quite an interesting burger experience! The patty was a combination of buah keluak and minced chicken, and it was topped with a spicy, tangy rempah, sweet chap chye, sandwiched between toasty, buttered, hamburger buns. Truly a Singaporean burger right here. However, I would definitely say it's not for everyone, and if you can't appreciate the earthiness of buah keluak, don't go for it. But I loved it!

Their hand- cut fries ($1.50) are fantastic as well, made fresh, and are legitimately hand- cut. A whole potato is cut up and put it in the fryer straight! Very thick!

I wish I could've tried their fish, pulled pork and beef burgers as well, but there's only so much I can eat in a day😅. They look really great as well, and are definitely the safer options if you're not adventurous.

Guys, I highly recommend this place, and before it closes down for good, go and give it a try. Their last day of operations is tomorrow, Saturday, 9th November. It will be the final chance to savour Hambaobao's amazing, and affordable burgers. Go early (before they open at 12pm) or you'll definitely be left disappointed as their burgers usually sell out mid- way through their business hours around 2- 3pm. I would even suggest queuing an hour or an hour and a half (remember, it's their last day!!) before they open to really guarantee your chance of trying the Pork Belly and Buah Keluak burger.

I sincerely wish Ryan and his wife all the best for the future, and thank you for serving us hungry Singaporeans all these years!

Went to Wok In Burger's newly opened joint in JCube (their other location being near Bukit Merah). They were having an opening week special, $2 for their Salted Egg Chicken Burger, which would otherwise go for a steeper price of $11.80.

Pretty decent burger, toasted buns and a very nice salted egg flavour, though I feel it'd be better with a little more of their salted egg. The portion of chicken was very generous! It was surprisingly not "jelak" at all and I could honestly go for 1 more, as I'm a big eater😬 Definitely do give them a try, to me this is much better than The Quarter's rendition of the salted egg burger.

Friendly staff, prompt service.

Had this great banh mi style sandwich by the newly opened THE REBEL GURL at 111 at Somerset. So good, so filling, absolutely satisfying meal. Portions of meat are very generous and I hope it stays that way. I ordered what I think was called the 'Rebel Boss' which had Pate, Chicken Cha Lua, Chicken Ham, and Chicken patties. Add the Thai sweet and spicy chili sauce (they have it at the condiments section) to your sandwich for an added dimension of flavour. Staff were super friendly and accommodating. Would take this over Subway any day!!!

A new addition to the Liang Sandwich family. Of course, the duck isn't superior quality, but it was good enough for its price ($7+). Would have been better with more hoisin sauce to make the flavours of the duck more apparent. Nice Asian sandwich made famous by Jay Chou. Overall a satisfying snack would buy again if hungry!
(Take note, the Peking Duck sandwich does not come with a fried egg, unlike most of Liang's Sandwiches. Mine has an egg because the chef (thankfully😂) made a mistake.)
