Burger fans alert! Wing fang alert! Burger Vs Wings + Bar (also known as B.W.B) opens at Orchard Central, with a spacious space offering 180-seats, and a fun vibrant ambience.
B.W.B has a fight club theme, designed to look like a boxing ring, with punching bags and gloves adorning the walls. During special ‘half-time’ sessions, placards are supposedly flashed for offers, such as half-price for certain items. (How come I see none of these when I am there?)
The real fight is between the burgers and wings, and the burgers seem to win this round.
The burgers are in the $14 to $20 plus range, with the signatures being the Wagyu Beef Black ($28) and BWB Classic Heavyweight Burger ($19.90) maded with patty stockyard angus beef patty.
I could not resist ordering the Tyson Peanut Butter Burger ($21.90), with creamy salty peanut butter spread on top of the angus beef patty, stuffed in the middle of sun-dried tomato brioche.
Actually, I was not expecting much and thus had a pleasant surprise when I sank my mouth in. The patty, while cannot be considered absolutely juicy wasn’t too dry or tough, and was well-grilled and evenly cooked. Weird as it may sound, the peanut butter with bacon works well to a T, and I sense more copycat versions coming up next. (But well, this is already quite popular in America.)
I wanted to try a variety, and so had the Sampler Trio Wings with Cajun Barbecue Wings, Wings Wrap (that is actually minced chicken in deep fried spring roll) and Jambalaya Wings ($18.00). Also spotted strangely out of place was a Vietnamese Spring Roll. Did Nam Nam leave it there?
Seasoning for the wings were great, ‘spring roll wings’ were my favourite, but were not crisp or tasty enough to be impressive.
Are you a big eater? You can get your money’s worth with their mini tapas and dessert buffet once you top up $4.90 for lunch and $7.90 for dinner (after you order a meal). The variety is huge, from salads, soups, pasta, meatballs, sous-vide eggs to cakes such as carrot cake, puddings and jellies. Such value for money!
No, of course I had no space at all after half a mega-huge burger, so the buffet while tempting, is ‘bo hua’ (not worth the money) for me. This will benefit those with big appetites who do not put on weight. You?
While the wings would require some fine-tuning, Burgers Vs Wings would easily fall into my “10 Best Places for Burgers” list with its wide offerings and energetic vibes. Can come back again.
