awesome burger!

Ate the fois gras burger, bloody tasty. 4 ppl, a few sides, total about $200. Not cheap but great place for burgers.

It may be a one-off, but they served me the worst burger I've ever had

For photos and the full review, head over here.

I've visited Roadhouse once before and found it absolutely amazing. Wagyu patties were delicious and I couldn't get enough of them. But my visit two days ago was astoundingly horrible.

1. There was barely any beef chili in my Hot Cheesy Fries, with 3/4 being chili oil.
2. My sister's coleslaw had a fly in it.
3. My boyfriend's extra patty to his Christmas Burger was served on a separate plate, between another 2 buns, to which the restaurant charged me $16 for.
4. My burger patties - both of them - were overcooked, ridden with specks of rubbery fat, under-seasoned, and most importantly had an unwelcomed scent. In other words the meat stank and tasted bad.
5. And when I asked for sunny side eggs to be added, I meant for them to be added into my burger, and not served on the side on a separate plate.

I brought my sisters here hoping to give them a good treat. Unfortunately Roadhouse ruined it.

And why any restaurant - especially one serving American fare - would hire Chinese nationals who couldn't understand my orders or request absolutely escaped me.

good burger

Visited roadhouse burger as I was in the vicinity. Definitely pricey for a burger, but it is truly in a league of its own. Superb sides like fries are a must try

Good Burgers

Roadhouse has always been my to-go place whenever I crave for burgers. Went there last Saturday only to find out that they've changed the menu! No more quesadillas and the burgers options have decreased drastically!! I used to love the Simply Brie-vine burger and I was quite sad that they didn't have it anymore but have been replaced with a Build Your Own Burger option. The presentation has changed also, it used to come in like a "basket" sort of thing with the fries next to the burger. Now it's on a wooden base with the fries in a metal holder. The base makes it quite tough to eat cos it's quite small & narrow, I ended up having to transfer the burger to a bigger plate to eat it. The wagyu patties are thick and juicy, so flavourful. I had the bacon burger- costs about $26. Fries are really good, crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I opted for truffle fries but sadly I didn't get much aroma of the truffle oil. The blue swimmer crab omelette is a must try as well, they have it on their breakfast menu. a whole back I shared the terminator burger with a friend (nope we didn't do the challenge though) and 6 wagyu patties and a whole bunch of fries for $58 was so worth it!!!

in search of the best burger in town

For the complete review with photos, visit http://fundamentally-flawed.blogspot.sg/2014/06/roadhouse-integration.html

The Roadhouse is a modern American diner shining the spotlight on burger artistry. It comes across as simply a restaurant with good food and earnest intent that just happens to be in one of the coolest spaces in the city. Inside, the feeling is almost "ironic suburban". with expansive family tables primed with chili flake shakers and good ole whimsical school diner lights hanging overhead. I settled in comfortably, only slightly bothered by the unfamiliar singlish jargon floating in the air. It will take time...

Kicking off the welcome back party were the Spicy Garlic Parmesan Wings (5 for $14), before you jump to conclusions, these are 5 single joints not 5 entire wings including both drumlets and wings. Pretty pricey in my opinion, these prove to be just mediocre, the BBQ sauce a little too acidic and one dimensional in flavor profile. 

The burgers come in variety of ingredient pairings; the menu proving to be a tough one to navigate if you're as fickle minded a person as I am. I went forth with the Bacon Marinated ($26), soft buns baked in house, beef patty sizzled on the josper grill; gorgonzola, streaky bacon, caramelized onions, garlic mayonnaise and sauteed mushrooms form the other layers. Similar to a brioche sans the unnecessary sweetness and sometimes overwhelming richness, the cloud like buns are a perfect canvas for this juicy mess. I just wish there was more gorgonzola on there... Verdict: this burger tickled my fancy, ticked off all the boxes that qualifies it as a good burger but still it's not the best I've tried. I continue my search for greener pastures.

His, High on Shrooms ($26) featuring forest mushrooms, truffle oil, rocket, monterey jack and garlic mayonnaise. Definitely an overkill in the truffle oil department, but the name says it, so no whining there.
