The Burger Bar by Fat Boy's Concepts, Far East Plaza

The Burger Bar (14 Scotts Road, #01-16A/B Far East Plaza, tel : +65 6737 3315) is run by the people that came up with Fatboys. The concept here is for people to build their own burgers and the options are pretty much similar to what one gets at Fatboys. With some bits of upgrades (more options for toppings, sauces, orders taken through iPads and blah blah....). Back at Fatboys, I remember being put off by the beef patties that they were using. What I didn't like about them were the poor meat to fat ratio, blandness and that they were generally overdone and not tasty. I was looking forward to a possible upgrade to the patties that they had been using now that this place had happened, but these guys here used exactly the same beef as they had then.

That was really the weakest link in the chain for my order of their cheeseburger with cheddar, pickles and peanut butter. They even had the brioche freshly toasted and soft and the only thing that hadn't worked for me was the very forgettable meat in the bread which made it such a pity. This makes me glad to top up the differences and head across the road for something real the next time I want proper beef in my burger when I'm in the vicinity.
