Amazing amazing burgers

For photos and the full review, head over here.

A huge fan of burgers, I'm always on the look out for F&B joints that can dish up amazing burgers; and I'm pleased to say that The Market Grill dishes up excellent burgers. Dubbed the CW signature burgers, each burger on their menu is unique and specially crafted by their executive chef Colin West. With freshly ground hand-formed chucks, amazing buns and great condiments, their burgers are probably one of the best I've had in Singapore. The CW Bleu Cheese is by far my personal fave.

If burgers aren't your thing, they do pretty good grilled meats and lobsters too. Freshly grilled/steamed, their live atlantic lobsters are yummy and very fairly priced.

Do note that they don't take reservations though; so be prepared to stand in line for your table.

Consistently the Safest and the Best Tasting Menu

I have been dining at The Market Grill for the past 2 years or so, sometimes once a month and at times 3 times a month depending on my travel and other dinner engagements.
 I dine out a lot and let me say this, I am yet to find another restaurant where the Chef has an undying passion for excellence, in food taste and food hygiene.
 Food is tasty, cooked to perfection and served at the right temperature and I would say 'I can eat at the MG every day!!
 Taste is very subjective and easy to recognize but not food hygiene. Unless you are from the industry you may not notice the relentless and consistent efforts the Chef and crew put in to ensure that the kitchen equipment, counters, floor, exhaust hood and panels are spotlessly cleaned EVERY single night.
 I have worked in the industry for over 35 years and have dined in many great restaurants around the world (I dont think Thomas Keller will let you visit his kitchen at The French Laundry!!) and out of all dining establishments with an open kitchen I am yet to find a Chef who rolls up his sleeves and works with his team to go over this cleaning ritual everynight, same efforts, passion and commitment every night.
 I bet MG have not recieved any complains re food hygiene that can be traced to this kitchen and those establishments that have had issues with food hygiene, they can learn many lessons from MG. Its a delight to watch how the crew works, after a tiring day facing the fire, yet with a passion and a smile!
 Keep it up MG, you will nevr fail.

Casual, smokey, memorable

The grill in the back wafts throughout this diner-esque place, but the result is excellent, grilled steaks with thoughtful (albeit small) sides and accompaniments. The focus here is on quality and execution in a casual environment, with interesting secondary cut choices (eg Bavette, prime flankk), though portions are somewhat small.

Awesome steaks and lobster

On Telok Ayer Street, packed tight with customers and serving up everything from Lobster to Apple Crumble lies The Market Grill. It has slowly become my fail-safe, back-up restaurant. And that isn't a bad thing. It's the place I go to when I'm in need of a d*** good feed and the reason I love it so much is simple - it ticks the three C's: Consistency, Convenience and Can't Eat Another Bite.   If you like meat and seafood then pretty much all orders are a safe bet, here are my recommendations..   If you're seriously hungry I'd recommend the Charcuterie Connoisseur Board  ($28) as a starter to share. This selection of cured meats served with sourdough bread is the perfect amount for two people. Also a good choice if you aren't too hungry and are just here to drink - although The Market Grill isn't really that kind of place. It's ALL about the food. Whether you're grabbing a burger at the bar or here for a sit down meal they've got all bases covered, but if you can't manage a starter and a massive main.. well I don't really blame you! On to the best bit..   The first thing noticeable when you walk in are the tanks of lobsters. It took me a while to try one whilst I was having my way with a different burger every week, but eventually I got stuck into one of their Chargrilled Whole Lobsters  ($45). The good quality meat needs very little manipulation or seasoning and is kept in it's naturally flavoursome state with a smokey, charred tinge, served with a creamy mash puree which is a beautifully contrasting texture to the meaty lobster.
