There were a lot of ravings in the media about Omakase Burger's burger, the self service burger joint when it opened at the refurnished Turf Club City now known as The Grand Stand. Some even labelled it as the best burger in town. Is it so good that it deserves the title as "best"?
Deluxe Cheese Burger 4.5/5
I ordered the Deluxe Cheese Burger Combo ($24.40) which comes with a choice of sides and drinks. The beef patty made with a blend considering of 4 different USDA Choice Grade beef cuts is smashed onto a hot grill and grilled to a caramelised crust sealing the beefy juicy flavours. The buns which is made exclusively by a local bakery is light and springy with good proportion. To bring the authentic Amercia taste to Asia, even the cheese is imported from Amercia.
I like my burger messy and Omakase's burger did not disappoint me. Biting into the beef patty, the flavourful beefy juice oozed out of the petite burger. Remember to have more serviettes handy.
Cheese Fries 4/5
Using 100% trans-fat free USA potatoes harvested from Pacific Northwest and smothered with homemade cheese sauce, the Cheese Fries was super addictive.
Sweet Potato Fries 3/5
This is not my first time having Sweet Potato Fries. Sofries offers it too. The sweetness of the sweet potato served as french fries is a good change to the norm. A little disappointment in how the sweet potato fries was served. As it was stacked into a glass, the water vapour has caused the sweet potato fries at the bottom to be soaky.
So what is my verdict of the burger? Is it the best? Yes! I agreed the Omakase Burger is one of the best in town. However will the burger joint be successful it waits to be seen. The owner may have found the right formuale for the best burger but the size and price will be hard to convince consumers. In addition, the location of the restaurnt is also not very convenient.
