This wagyu cheese burger ($26++) is surprisingly a notch above the rest! The beef patty had a beautiful medium rare interior, juicy and savoury. It is layered with maple glazed bacon, it’s sweetness giving dimension of flavour. Would have liked a stronger cheese but we enjoyed this greatly on a whole! Also had my all-time favourite crab pasta ($24++) - have read of some misses from other reviewers, but it never disappoints with its thick sauce and generous portion of crab meat.

Always balk at its ridiculously high prices (it is fast food, after all) but how could I resist a burger at its flagship store?? Opted for the Shake Stack ($14.30) this time - their penultimate burger. Comprising its signature potato buns with a juicy beef patty, flavour bursts in your mouth as you bite down on its fluffy exterior. The experience is elevated by the addition of a portobello mushroom topped with provolone cheese and encased in a crisp batter.. This is my very definition of a dirty burger 🌟

Have been back to working title multiple times, which surely says something! Tried the Baa-ger ($17.90++) this time. The lamb patty was surprisingly well seasoned and not gamey! It was topped by provolone cheese and the usual vegetables. Would have liked the garlic aioli to come through more evidently, but I really enjoyed the flavour of the patty! Do note that the prices are not consistent across their online, physical and ordering menus.

Winestone’s signature burger ($27++) sure has a following amongst its diners! It features brioche buns with onion marmalade and mustard. The wagyu patty was tender and juicy but slightly lacking in flavour. The portobello mushrooms actually overwhelmed most of the other components, including the cambert cheese.

Tried Cheese & Whiskers ($15.90+) within the same week and loved it so much! I’m a huge fan of cheese, and this hit all the right notes with its medley of mozzarella, cheddar and provolone. The beef patty oozes with flavour and is complemented by garlic aioli & sour ranch sauce!

Tried the Baconator ($17.90+, front)! It features the standard beef patty with beef bacon, caramelised onions and garlic aioli. Found the bacon a bit too thick and tough and the aioli lacking in flavour, but I love working title’s patties! It never fails with its juicy goodness. The duck burger ($17.90+, back) comprises smoked duck with a charcoal bun.

Was in the mood for a burger, and I chose the chicken option ($13) since Fat Chook is known for chicken! Proved to be a good choice yum - the chicken patty was so tender and succulent and not at all fatty! The slather of avocado wasn’t very distinct, but I enjoyed the sriracha mayo. My favourite part of it was the tomato salsa - both roasted and fresh tomato slices hidden within, which lent a bit of sweetness and acidity πŸ‘πŸΌπŸŒŸ

Interestingly, The Assembly Ground serves a version with portobello ($22+)! It was coated in a light batter and drizzled with truffle mayo - the mushroom retained its flavour well, but the batter was rather oily and thus overwhelming. Liked the beef patty, which was juicy and well seasoned. And unfortunately, the brioche bun was soggy.

Made our way down to a quiet part of Tanjong Pagar for dinner with a chope voucher! All their burgers come with a sesame bun, the usual greens and oat battered chicken. We tried the Ayam Legend (salted egg sauce, $14++) and Ayam Hot (curry sauce, $14++). The sauces tasted surprisingly like the real thing! Would be perfect if they were a little more spicy. The chicken patty got a little overwhelming due to the deep fried batter, but the parts with tender meat were good.

The hangover burger ($22) fared much better! A single wagyu patty was accompanied by a crispy hash brown drizzled with maple syrup, a fried egg, sautΓ©ed mushrooms and the usual cheese, lettuce and tomato. The beef patty was similarly below expectations, but the variety of flavours and textures more than made up for it. Interestingly, there was a dash of hot sauce in the burger!

The Armoury Burger ($23) comprises two wagyu patties, bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato. The bacon added a dash of savouriness but the beef was a tad dry, with a flavour that was not distinct. The sauce tasted like thousand island! The bun was pretty dense but well buttered, and the fries sprinkled with paprika. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to the hype of being a namesake burger.

Populus has two lunch sets to choose from! This is the fried chicken burger ($22+), which came with chunky paprika fries. The brioche buns were dense but crispy and nicely buttered. Lightly battered, the chicken patty was surprisingly tender and juicy! The red cabbage and carrot slaw gave some acidity to cut through the otherwise heavy meal. The set meal is particularly worthwhile as you get your choice of coffee (+$1 for ice, some exclusions)! Wish they had more options available, but a good meal and rare indulgence nonetheless :-)
