Omakase Burgers @ Grandstand Turf City
Omakase Burgers hit town not too long ago. Before trying it, I had my reservations - what makes this tick when
1) It is so far away. By means of far, it is ulu-ated, directionally very challenging and anything else but convenient or within stone's throw away from an MRT station.
2) It really is the distance that is a put off.
Queues were expected on a weekend but the crowds at Turf City is surprising. The snaking lines made queueing up a tad annoying but thankfully the service staff were patient and tables were actually readily available.
The buzzer that seems a bit passe these days, don't you think?
House Salad ($4.90)
This was a side portion but decently sized infact. Fresh greens with a delectable soya dressing, healthy on all grounds.
The bomb, this has to be. Loaded with a mass of ingredients that upped the sin factor of fries by several notches - satisfaction maxed out. I particularly love the balance of the nacho cheese, avocado and bacon bits, just nice and not an overkill.
Bacon Cheeseburger ($15.90)
I suppose pictures do the size more justice than intended, it is smaller than the size of a Mcdonalds cheeseburger and taller.
The choice of medium doneness resulted in a juicy patty with a pretty shade of pink! I'm nuts about the patty, bacon, buns and well the burger itself. Main grouse is its portions and really, the grease that permeates with every bite. Even my fingers were greasy by the end of the meal.
Ultimate Cheeseburger ($17.50)
For double patties, top up $5.90. We had this in medium rare and juices were flowing like no end, expect a bloody mess quite literally but go past the colour and be in for a treat!
Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice ($4.50)
Pint sized orange juice just because I was intrigued by the juicer. No sugar added hence the sourness but that beats a drink that is artificially enhanced.
Root Beer Float ($5.50)
I must have missed the A and W days too much even when this was served straight out of the can, it brought back lovely memories.
This is probably the only fastfood restaurant that closes after lunch hours during weekdays and reopens for dinners. Understandably so in a location like that, yet their burgers are so good! Worthy of the crowds and accolades of this being Singapore's best burger - ditto.
