Omakase Burger

X and I first went to The Grandstand in October and we returned every fortnightly to do work at one of the coffee joints there. We have had many chances to dine at Omakase Burger but we just didn't try it. It wasn't till a couple of months later when we've read many positive reviews about the place when we finally gave it a shot! Something good was right in front of us all that while but we didn't know it haha. X loves burgers so Omakase was a must-try for us.

We really like going to The Grandstand because it's not so crowded plus there's free parking! And there are really alot of food places coming up there.






Root Beer Float - $5.50
Good old root beer with a scoop of soft serve instead of your usual vanilla. It was surprisingly nice! The soft serve was sweet and wasn't too milky

Affogato - $4.90
Espresso with soft serve. I was like "huh, this one also soft serve?" I guess we're used to the creamy and milky vanilla icecream we get in our affogatos that we were quite skeptical about this. Haha, but again, it surprised us!

Omakase Cheeseburger - $13.90
Handground beef patty, toasted artisanal buns, melted American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and secret Omakase sauce.

The buns were soft and buttery and the patty was tender, beefy and juicy. Every bite was bursting with flavour and goodness. Completed with melted cheese, I couldn't help but really like the burger! It's pretty damn good! The only downside was that the portion was a little small but you can always double your burger!

Ultimate Cheeseburger - $17.50
It's like the Omakase burger with bacon, onions and mushrooms

Like the Omakase burger, this was fantastic but also a tad too small on the portion side. We could have used a small side of fries! The presentation of the burger made it look even smaller as it comes in a basket. The burger looked lonely, and the basket looked pretty empty without an accompanying side.

Truffle fries - $6.90
We were still hungry so we decided to get truffle fries.

The truffle fries came in a small glass container that can be held in your palm. So it's really quite small. For a small portion of fries with hardly enough truffle taste, this was pretty expensive. However, the fries were crisp, not over-fried and were very soft on the inside.

I've seen many newspaper cuttings in the eatery saying that the best burgers in Singapore might be from Omakase. I don't know if they do have the best burgers, but they certainly do have really awesome ones!
