There never seems to be enough burger joints around. And when you have a name like “Most Original Burger” or MOB, you would expect their food to be… yah, original.
The Goodfellas ($14.90) was their best-seller, formed by three 60 gram mini-burgers joined together, each with a different patty you could choose. There was a ‘bridge’ that linked all three, think Marina Bay Sands in a burger form. The fillings were mostly the usual suspects or Asian cuisine inspired such as Classic Beef, Grilled Salmon, Ebi Fry, Thai Chicken, and Smoked Duck.
I had a Teriyaki Chicken, Beef Bulgogi (stir-fried sliced ribeye smothered in classic Korean Bulgogi Sauce) and The Sloppy Joe (grilled beef patty smothered in Bolognaise Sauce).
I liked my burgers warm, substantial and meaty. So these burgers though cute, did not work for me. The portions were small, and fillings were ordinarily prepared. The burger was soft, fluffy and mildly sweet for me.
My biggest regret was when the waiter (who wore an all black mobster uniform) asked if I wanted cheese to my burgers and bread with my soup, I said yes. He did not warn me about the price though, and upon seeing the receipt I was reminded of the Resorts World’s Sultan fish.
The 4cm by 4cm almost non-consequential cheese was an extra $3, and the four pieces of thin garlic was $4, excluding taxes! Where’s the cheese?
The mushroom soup was already $7.90, and that meant the bread with a pathetic small square bowl of soup which was three quarter filled cost me close to 14 bucks.
The mediocre cheesy fries were not piping hot and felt soggy. Again, where’s the cheese?
My burger set, soup and drink set me back by…. $44. Initially, I did have faith in a home-growth brand of burgers. But with a fast-food like setting, my feedback would be for MOB to work something on their prices to keep themselves up to competition. And please give more cheese.
