Like the positive media reviews plastered on the glass of this fast food burger restaurant, a colleague found the burgers to be so darn good; she promised she would pay for my share if i make time (and effort) to travel to "the grandstand" at Bukit Timah.
I admit it took me a while and by the time i finally got my ass glued to the seat at Omakase Burger, it has opened a second branch that's more conveniently located at Wisma Atria!
Simply listing down the differences says a lot about the confidence and being the usual skeptical soul that i really am, i am quite at ease to brush away its confidence - advertising is one thing, to taste and note the disparities for real is another.
Visually, the above hardly impressed, except for maybe the fact that it cost S$14.90! Yes, you heard me right, a double cheeseburger is maybe about S$2 in McDonald's and this is seven times the price!
Let us take a while to analyse the burger further so as to identify justifications for the price. Normal bun, fresh looking lettuce, a thicker-than-Macs beef patty and well, a slice of plain looking cheese.
Hold on a second - i have yet to taste it and it's when i took a big chunk that everything changed with one metaphorical phrase coming to mind; never judge a book by its cover.
It was insanely delicious and i am talking about experiencing the entire package rather than the individual ingredients although i strongly believe the secret weapon was the Omakase signature sauce. The hand-ground 100% USDA choice grade premium cut beef party was grilled perfectly with a middle pink done-ness that exploded with tasty juiciness in every bite!
By the way, one is insufficient to fill my tummy.
Sweet Potato Fries
My friend bought this for sharing and boy were they addictive! I would very much prefer this sweet version over the traditional salty French fries!
There were decent; however, i like my onion rings to be dripping of oil, somewhere around the likes of the ones from Buckaroo!
