The Handburger (Raffles City)

The Handburger. Name in such a way because everything here is made with ‘their hands’ and all natural ingredients. I would love to find out and debate if this is really the case. But well, lets not go into that.

Set Menu

Burger Menu

I order the set, The Handburger Original ($7.80), Onion Rings and Iced Lemon Tea. So the set will cost $7.80 + $4.00 + service charge 10% + GST 7%.

Iced Lemon Tea

Onion Rings

The batter coating the onion rings is quite unique, not something that I have eaten else where. Seems to have been some herbs mixed in it if my taste bud is right. Best to have it when it is just served, when it is warm and crispy.

The Handburger Original

The Handburger Original consist of  beef patty, cheddar cheese, sweet onion jam, barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato and of course the caramelised onion buns that sandwich these ingredients. Quite like the caramelised onion buns, moreover the buns were soft. Moreover, my beef patty was juicy and tender. So unlike those from fast food chains, where the processed beef patty tends to be dry and hard. But whether The Handburger did their burger from scratch such as mincing the beef, that I do not know.

The Burger Dessert $6.50

The Burger Dessert consist of chocolate patty with macadamia nuts, apple cream cheese, strawberries sandwiched by 2 donut buns.  Kudos for the presentation and creativity. It looks nice, colourful and maybe cute. But well, sadly, it did not suit my taste bud. Quite a weird combination. And the donut bun was too hard. For me, I do not really care about presentation, so long as it taste delicious, relatively healthy and affordable or at least value for money.

Overall, The Handburger concept is very similar to Burger Bench Bar. Where they spot a distinct market gap and is addressing it. So kudos to both entities. Even their prices are quite similar on the high end.

Burger Bench & Bar (2nd visit)

Second visit to Burger Bench & Bar to use our 2nd voucher from Beeconomic Groupon. The earlier post can be found here.

Burger Bench & Bar Menu

Burger Bench & Bar Menu, give a different feel compared to a paper based menu. Quite a lot of places use this concept for their menu too. They have a more detailed menu at the counter.

No preservation. No MSG. No processed meat. I am glad to know that Burger Bench & Bar is stating that their food contain none of it. Lets hope it is true. As in today’s world, there is a 99.9% chance that if you are eating out or buying any food from supermarket it is likely to be process or contains MSG and preservation. How else can the expiry date or shelf life be extended. Notice that food can last longer now? Well its because of these stuff. Are they healthy? Well, no… But we have no choice this is the effects of globalisation. Ironic..

Soft-Shell Chilli Crab Burger $8.20

Hmmm.. the burger bread contains no preservations? That is only possible if they do it themselves.. well I have no idea.

Soft-Shell Chilli Crab Burger was yummilicious. You get the real deal, soft-shell crab that was deep fried, not some paste. The chilli sauce was good, almost similar to the chilli sauce that can be found when you order chilli crab. Got abit messy as the sauce dripped down on my fingers. But well, its finger licking good, I do not mind, no wastage.

Omelette Cheese Beef Burger $8.00, add Fries $1.20

Omelette Cheese Beef Burger, deadly combination of egg, cheese and beef. Delicious, the beef was soft and juicy unlike those in fast food which is definitely harder and drier.

Fries was average and too salty for me, nothing fancyful. Wonders if its made from real potato or processed?

Home-Made Gourmet Dark Chocolate Ice Cream $3.00

The Home-Made Gourmet Dark Chocolate Ice Cream was fantastic. Smooth and thick, accompanied by a rich taste of chocolate.

Well, that is my last voucher. I hope Beeconomic will have another deal with Burger Bench & Bar soon. It is really worth it as using the voucher is like 50% discount for all the food we ate. So effective this meal costs $10.40 only. Without this voucher, I feel that its a tad too expensive as we were still hungry after the meal =)

Saute Mixed Mushroom Beef Burger $8.20 with Russet Potato Chips $1.00

Saute Mixed Mushroom Beef Burger with Russet Potato Chips

Saute Mixed Mushroom Beef Burger cost $8.20. Add on Russet Potato Chips for $1.00.  The beef patty is soft, tender and juicy. And its so much thicker and nicer than McDonald. Its really time to stop wasting calories on McDonald and other fast food. This is what a burger should be. It does not help that I am a fan of mushroom! There have been alot of reviews on the Russet Potato Chips that is why I add on the $1.00. I am not won over by it. It is all yellow Russet Potato Chips, not mixture of yellow or purple. And too much salt was added. Luckily, it was thinly sliced, crispy and crunchy.

Sarawak Black Pepper Beef Burger $7.90 with Russet Potato Chips $1.00

Sarawak Black Pepper Beef Burger with Russet Potato Chips

Again you notice that its all yellow Russet Potato Chips, no purple. The Sarawak Black Pepper Beef Burger. Looks delicious? Yes was =)

Home-Made Gourmet Dark Chocolate Ice Cream $3.00

Smooth and thick. It is not some cheapo diluted chocolate ice cream. This is the perfect way to end of a meal. This ice cream is a must try.

Luckily for the 50% discount voucher. I wish I bought more of the vouchers. Now left with 1 more voucher, I am going to try some other burgers in there.
