Best burger place in Singapore.

This is the Singapore equivalent of In-N-Out Burger and Shake Shack. I tried the Omakase cheeseburger ($14), which was expensive for such a small burger. The buns were nice, not too dry or too hard. The beef patties were soft and juicy. The cheese was nicely melted. The sweet potatoes fries were great too. My boyfriend had the chicken sandwich which was different that your traditional chicken sandwich. The fried chicken patty was marinated in an Asian way - with I think a touch of soya sauce and sesame oil. It is definitely not as good as the beef patties. The cheese fries were pretty good. Instead of just pouring "cheap" cheese all over the fries, they added their own flavorings which made it more savoury. They used high quality cheese unlike KFC cheese fries. Overall, I will come back to this burger place, because I haven't found a decent burger place in Singapore, apart from this.

Expensive average burgers

I signed up for an account just to post this review.
 This place is waaaaaaay too expensive for average burgers.
 ordered 6 burgers, 6 sides and 5 drinks totalling ~$150.
 1stly the oil they used for cooking seems to be re-used many times. The chicken burger turned out to be quite dark in color (due to the old oil) and burnt as well. For the price they are charging they could at least change the oil more often.
 The "premium buns" i had on my burger was so soggy that it was falling apart from it's own weight.
 The size of the burgers were quite small, similar to Mos burger sizes.
 That being said, the sweet potato fries were nicer than the ones normally sold outside. Beef patty was decent as well.
 
 Overall, this place is too overpriced and not really worth it.
 It is no In-N-Out. I can get much better burgers at half the price at In-N-Out.

Really authentic american burgers, but why so expensive?

See the full review with pictures here: http://pickledpeas.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/lunch-at-omakase-burger/   We’ve been hearing a lot about this burger place in Turf City (also walked past it several times when we were dining at MAD) and I saw one outlet in Wisma Atria while shopping there the other day so decided to check it out! Verdict: The prices are a little steep for a burger joint but it DOES do one of the best burgers I’ve had in Singapore with a not-too thick patty (so you get more browned bits) and melts-just-right american cheese. But like, you could just go to New York and go to Shake Shack or go to In n Out. Or even Five Guys, Five Guys does a pretty decent burger. So yeah, in burger and cow-scarce Singapore, this is a real treat! We had their Cheeseburger with applewood smoked bacon – so good. I love thin beef patties, and also, burgers that actually fit in your mouth. The bun was soft and toasted just right, but there could have been a little more bacon I think!   Cheeseburger with sauteed onions and mushrooms – again, not enough mushrooms, but the burger itself was very good and very juicy. Every single component was perfect.   The guy at the counter was extremely eager for us to try their fries fried in beef tallow – nothing special I thought! Yes there is an additional beef flavour to the fries but it isn’t as obvious as truffle fries or some of the other fries there I wanted to try. When someone else’s order of truffle fries came the beautiful smell wafted right across the restaurant to our table and I immediately regretted ordering my beef tallow fries :P The chilli cheese fries sounded really good too!   Don’t really get what is so “omakase” about this – there’s no fixed menu at all! But I’m not one to begrudge obsessive Japanese people who manage to recreate other cuisines with such finesse especially when they set up shop in Singapore!

The Most Expensive Burger

I must say that this is the most over price burger I've ever eat before in my entire life. Standard taste, un-well presented meal as almost looks like moss burger and yet moss burger taste even better. The fries taste like cheap fries you buy at local frozen supermarket and with the cost of total 20 SGD for a meal with poor presentation meal, and with self service some more it is definately one of the most unsatisfying dinner I had. I dont understand why people still want to spend to that over price meal with taste only average and is even taste worst than the local burger shop near my area. I understand the rental can be highly expensive there but then again I wouldn't mind spending more for something that is amazing and perfectly well done presentation with good quality food. So I would say that I wouldn't even want to recommend to anyone.

SHIOK but EX

d*** shiok but a little overpriced. Patties were mega juicy LOVE IT! For $18 I'd expect a slightly bigger serving though.   Also, don't be misled by the $1.90 promo. People who don't read it properly will think it's $1.90 to top up for a set when it's actually $1.90 OFF a set...which is aboutt.....$4 for a drink and $6-7ish for fries? So yeah, $1.90 off the total of the fries n drinks.  Expensive!! And the queue at Wisma is ridiculous. For first-timers i'd say it's worth the wait.
