Hotshots Flame Grilled Burgers, Lau Pa Sat

This store which does flame grilled burgers apparently comes from a chain in the Philippines and has made it's debut here in Lau Pa Sat. I read that they started off as a stall in a car park and has slowly grown into the chain it is today. A little voice in my head told me that this was likely to be better than another burger store with a weak knockoff for a meat patty. To fast forward into retrospection, this wasn't too bad at all. What I got from the ultimate cheese burger ($8) were two slices of quarter pounder beefy tasting patties marked quite distinguishably with the charred flavour of real flame grill. Those guys at the stall reminded us that Rome wasn't built in a day and that their flame grill burgers likewise, took time. It did take a while for the orders to arrive.

The main gripe I had with them was the cheese sauce. While that was tasty in its own ways, didn't feel quite adequately cheesy for a cheeseburger. It had melted to the point that barely any of that cheese could be seen. I saw a blue cheese burger in the menu so maybe I'll come back another time. There's also some Irish nachos thing which seems to be criss cut fries with beef chilli and cheese which wasn't yet available.

Add a little mustard in between your patties they will taste great. I did. :)

The Irish Nachos were available at lunch when I went. Maybe they ran out of it coz you went late?

I was there about 6.30, so it might have been that case.
