Dissecting the Burger

Either the other people are much better than me at manipulating food for taking photos, or I happened to receive less toppings/condiments for my order. Almost all of them seemed to have better looking toppings. Maybe an advice I have for visiting the establishment is to bring along a camera.

Reviewing the Burger

Start off with the fries. They were crispy, thick-cut, and had a soft potato center. Classic, standard fries that are well-fried, but a little lacking in the seasoning. Definitely needed more salt.

Done-ness of beef wasn’t asked, but the result is about medium-well. The picture probably looks poorer than it actually tastes, as the patty had good flavour and were salted about right. Buns were fluffy and served as a good catchment for excess meat juices. However, I would have liked more toppings.

Rating for Burgs’ Classic Burger

I rate food based on how far I am willing to travel, as well as whether I think the price I paid for it justifies it. You can read more about why here.

Travel-meter:

This is a strict upgrade over your fast food chain’s burgers. That said, I would be hard pressed to consider travelling far to eat this. A short walk. Queue times are also apparently pretty long at certain times.

I should also mention that it is halal, though I am unaffected by this.

Worth-it-meter:

At the price, I got slightly more than expected. It is a quality burger, though perhaps not quite gourmet.

Location

Has 2 locations. Both have different menus. The one at Viva Business Park is also more expensive, probably due to location.
