This fat stack lives up to its name of being legendary. A well grilled medium ear black Angus beef patty, the beef was tender and flavourful at the same time. The bun was buttered and toasty, making this an added delight to eat. Hard Rock Cafe’s specialty steak sauce was placed separately, and it’s up to you to decide how much you’d like on your burger. It was slightly sourish, but appetising and light. However, pouring it made the burger slightly soggy, so pour at your own risk (else your could just dip it). Almost all the elements of the burger came together nicely, except for the onion rings. While the onion rings were crispy and great, they made the burger way too huge, and it was just better off being munched on on its own.
The atmosphere at Hard Rock Cafe was unpretentious. Arguably a quintessential restaurant in almost every country, Hard Rock Cafe has made a name for itself for centring itself around rock music and music legends. Adding to this great vibes were relatively friendly and cheerful service staff!

A good burger grilled to perfection. We requested for the Angus beef patty to be done medium rare. This made the burger slightly wet, but not too soggy. The shoestring onions added a crispy touch to the burger and the slick barbecue sauce elevated the overall flavour of the burger.

The last time I visited Oriole was before it revamped its menu in 2017. With its new menu, Oriole provides more options with their classic breakfast options, as well as a wide variety of mains to choose from. I decided to go for their signature truffle beef burger, choosing the meat’s doneness at medium rare. Stacked together with sautéed mushrooms, caramelised onions, melted cheese and truffle aioli, the burger was on the wet and soggier side - as a matter of personal preference, I felt that it was too soggy to my liking. Further, the bun was on the softer side, rather than one that was crisp and buttery. Despite the overall lacklustre flavour, the burger still managed to come together decently. This dish remains unimpressive, and the oddly textured fries lacking seasoning only reinforced it. Like in many cafes and bars, a burger this quality does the job. But if you’re looking for a burger to be impressed by, this would not be up for the task.

Bigger is not always better. I love a single smoke shack because a single patty of beef just goes so well with the cheese, sauce and bacon strips so well. But the added beef patty just throws the proportion of this burger off. Would choose a single smoke shack any day from now on.

This was not a good day for Shake Shack.. I enjoyed how thin and crisp the marinade of the chicken was, the chicken was rathe dry. The whole burger didn’t come together very well either. Seriously just felt so dry.

Signature Poet’s burger with a beef patty, crispy bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, crispy onions and and house relish. When you eat all of them together, it is extremely delicious. However most of the time the burger will always be deconstructed so you don’t get the best flavour all of the time. But still, it was not bad. The vibe of this place is amazing. Added $2 to change the normal fries to chilli beef fries. This was extremely worth it! Better than the luncheon meat fries. With the beef bits and tasty chilli flavour.

Double cheeseburger, an additional layer of beef patty on top of a single cheese burger. The thing is I don’t think there is much flavour to the beef patty, so this wasn’t a huge wow. I’d rather choose the single cheeseburger with an egg for the price. Nonetheless, glad I tried it😊

Fluffy buttered buns with a single beef patty, cheese melted onto it, and topped with a sunny side up egg for to elevate the experience. This is one you can get if you think a double cheese burger would be too filling, but a single would not be enough for you. The beef patty was decent, and while they had green chilli and shallots to the burger, there wasn’t anything special about its overall flavour. What I liked about it was how the sunny side up yolk was runny, it made a lot of difference to how oozey and messy this burger would be eaten, in a good way. $3 for a fries upgrade might seem pricey to some, but I thought the Cuban fries was worth it. It comes with cheese, beef brisket and a sprinkle of chilli flakes. It was an interesting flavour, especially how there was pulled beef with it - making the upgrade pretty worth it! For the overall price, and the fact that I am able to get a higher quality of burgers in a food court, I am pleased!

Angus beef burger with caramelised onions, and cheese that I would rather it melted and charred well with the party. The brioche buns were soft and fluffy, but nothing amazing especially when it’s not extremely buttered and toasted. I Guess everything still came together rather decently, making this a pretty ordinary dish. However, shout out to the curly fries which saved the entire dish. It was extremely crispy and tasty, and I enjoyed it the most this whole dish.

This was so worth it! For $22, you get a double beef patty, with onions, bacon and egg together with Super melty cheese. While the quality of the ground beef patty was pretty standard and nothing astounding, the burger in and of itself, with all the elements coming together, was delicious. The beef was said to be grilled medium well - it wasn’t, and it deconstructed quite easily. Still, for the price, I’m not complaining!
Also, the fries were so good!!!! Crispy and super well seasoned - couldn’t stop munching on them, making it the perfect side dish.

Well this was an interesting burger that is worth a try! The combination of guacamole and spicy chipotle flavours were unique, and into a smoked, charcoal grilled burger, it worked out pretty well.

Clasped in two, soft and smoked brioche buns were a combination charcoal grilled beef patty and onions, smoked mushrooms and blue cheese. The buns were on the softer side, toasted on the outside and not too buttery, although I personally would prefer it to be more buttered and toasty. Nonetheless, the X factor of this dish needless to say is the thick, juicy beef patty charcoal grilled to perfection. Sometimes experiences are best shared when lived, because words don’t do it justice. When it’s not too hard and not too raw, and when you can still see a subtle pink, you know that these chefs really know how to cook one mean burger. While I admittedly do not really fancy the blue cheese and mushroom combination, I believe it is just a personal taste, and that most people would enjoy or even adore this combination. I would prefer a normal, less adventurous cheeseburger, and I believe that would’ve done the job for me (is it okay for me to admit now that I’m not a big fan of burgers?😣). Even with that aside, I did enjoy this very much.
The fries were also extremely pleasant. I don’t really like fries any thicker than shoestring, but these tempura fries were so crispy to the point that they were addictive! While some may say it seems like long john silver’s fries, I would say that it’s crispness and batter somehow tasted like McDonald’s twister fries! Still, it was very very good and well seasoned🤗
People of the stall were really friendly, and it is an open concept kitchen, where you can see them whipping up dishes and smoking them professionally😊
