Potato Head Folk is known for their fantastic vibes with amazing casual foods.
Potato Head Folk opened with three weeks ago with a bang. In tow, it's brought six hefty burgers ($20-$29) and a whole lotta character. The four-level corner shophouse holds forty persons each, from level two onwards. The rooftop is set to open this weekend, but the rest are in full swing already. We sunk our teeth into the Four Levels burger ($28), a dripping mass of double prime patties (100g each), double cheese, triple onions, lettuce, pickles, and in-house made sauces (all are, here) - tomato (T.O.M) and miso mayonnaise. The burger patty and bread recipes are from chef Adam Penney (formerly at @pattyandbun), but due to tight kitchen space, they've been given to suppliers to put together. The menu at @ptheadsg is the same as that of @ptthead in Jakarta (which Adam also started) but the Singapore space, is much quirkier. The cocktails are weak. Check out HungryGoWhere's Facebook for a video.
If you have heard the news way back about Tong Ah Coffee House, you could have knew that the one talking over the shop space would be Potato Head Folk.
Potato Head Folk creates a whimsical environment with its furnishing spanning across 4 floors in the hertitage building of Chinatown.
At the first level along the passage way, you can see the workings in the kitchen and perhaps smell the good food that they are preparing. They are called the Three Buns with a space serving gourmet bugers and cocktails, also for taking aways.
Stairways between the levels are all hand painted with murals and hanging with art pieces.
On the third level where we dine in the lounge bar as the dining room in level 2 was fully reserved. Atmosphere is definitely better if you are in the search for vintage seating, leather couches to chill and have catch up conversations with friends over for some snacks and cocktails.
If you enjoy alfresco dining, head up to their rooftop setting where you grab a good dining environment with herb around. Their artisanal buns were freshly baked by local baker daily. Even their sauces, pickles and garnishes were made by their own chef with love. Priding their food with best quality prime beef and lamb from Australia as well as UK, be rest assure to sit back and enjoy the burgers. Do not be too shy to request how you want your patty to be done, be in medium or well done. Even if you are looking for different diet like protein style, they can provide patties to be wrap in lettuce instead of the buns.
The toasted demi brioche buns was airy and light, sandwiching 120g of prime beef patty together wtih cheese, lettuce, ‘Notorious T.O.M. sauce’, pickles & spiced mayo. Yummy! Fun Boy Three was classified as burger of the month. With its name after the 80's pop band, grab it when you see it as they won't be in the menu for long. This rich gourmet burger features 120g aged beef patty, roasted portobello mushroom, garlic, miso butter, smoked cheese, double ketchup, truffle aioli in toasted demi brioche bun. If you were to asked me to choose 1 between the 2 burgers, I would give this more vote Just 2 burgers with nothing else in our orders cost us about $55 in total which we thought was hefty to our pockets. If you don't mind splurging once a while for quality burgers, these gourmet burgers are actually good. However, do remember to make a reservation before heading down to avoid disappointment.
Lame food. Sad selection. Waiters would rather chit-chat among themselves by the bar rather than making sure that the diners are taken care of. We paid $150 for 4 of us in a place that supposedly a hip joint from Bali? No darn way we will go back even if it's a free meal. The reservation and greeters at the front are on the ball though, the only good thing about this establishment.
