Located at Cathay Cineleisure, Burger Bench & Bar is a western restaurant which specialises in serving hamburgers.
Soft shell crab burger with chips, $8, add $1 for chips
One super-worth-it choice, their crab portion was generous for $8 burger, though the chip would be better with some flavours but they will do good with ketchup.
Chunky black pepper beef burger with chips $8, add $1 for chips
The husband chose fresh pounded cheesy beef burger... Fresh and juicy, their black pepper is not too strong, black pepper flavour did not overrule the taste of the leading beef
Dark chocolate softy... bitter sweet.. So creamy so
good!! Taste like gelare with a cut of price, $3.

Burger Bench will be serving the last burger on 31 July so I feel oblige to write about it. Every time I pass by Burger Bench & Bar, I see that it isn’t as crowded as the fastfood and other restaurants nearby. Now, Singaporeans, if I have one thing to say about eating, it would be: STOP EATING JUNK.
I’ve eaten here a few times, and Burger Bench & Bar’s burgers are very delicious and comforting. Sure, the ingredients aren’t organic but at least they are not made of processed meat loaded with chemical preservatives.
The other day, I ordered the Chicken Breast burger ($8.50) at the counter, got a number, and they sent the burger to me. Chicken Breast because it’s healthy, low-fat, high in proteins. I love it that the joint provides healthy alternatives to their more unique burgers such as green curry catfish burger ($8.20) and Japanese curry torikatsu burger ($8.20). It has caramelized onions, shredded cabbage or some vegetable, pickles, and they bothered to stuff the breast with sundried tomatoes. Although chicken breast is tough in general, the more I ate it, the happier I got. At least this chicken breast was juicy, so it was not overcooked. The vegetables were crunchy and fresh. It was filling up my stomach and yet I felt light.
Two minor grouches I have is: the restaurant could have been more positive. For instance, at the condiments corner, it wrote, “Mustard: Not for non-beef burgers.” See the negativity? Two negatives: “not” and “non.” It could have been rephrased by saying “Usually for beef burgers.” I think this negativity spills over so that the workers looked tired. The second gripe I have is: if this is a healthy joint, as it promotes itself, then why are the condiments processed? And the buns of the burgers too? Go all the way, man.
Overall, I like this place very much. So now you have two choices: (1) continue eating the fast-food junk and end up with cancer or (2) eat healthy. Your body is your temple. Don’t let another healthy joint close down again.

ED: With many hot burger joints in the food scene, competition is hot and every joint has their own unique concept and traits to survive the endless horde of burger hungry Singaporeans. Armed with a novelty concept, Burger Bench & Bar seems to be among the few in the front line. B3 (Burger Bench & Bar) are a Western/Japanese fusion style burger joint that uses real meat from Australia and real fish fillets & chicken breasts rather than re-constituted meat. They also do not use preservatives or artificial flavouring! (Means their burgers don't last for 4 years without decomposing :D ) Their believe- Fast food doesn't mean junk food!
My partner and I decided to fuel up at B3 before watching Transformers 3 (which was kick ass and Megatron died) We were contemplated to order fries as we wanted to put BFF (Best Fries Forever) to the test and we order just 2 burgers in the end. I had the Mushroom Beef Burger while she chose the most interesting choice in my opinion, the Green Curry Catfish Burger!
Mushroom Beef Burger $8.20
While waiting, we could actually hear spanking sounds in the kitchen. Nothing kinky what are you thinking? They really do hand pack their burgers! Unless.. It was really the sound of something else. The burgers arrived pretty quickly on a Japanese bento tray. It was average in size unlike those American style ones. The sesame bun was slightly toasted. Juice oozed out as i my teeth sliced through the medium beef patty and the fresh button mushrooms burst which each bite... Continued on http://cinnamonsin.wordpress.com
