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.
