More than just another burger joint, Burger+ provides you that Korean-style gourmet burger experience in the heart of Singapore at Wisma Atria.
This is perhaps the only fast-casual restaurant in Singapore that offer Korean Burgers AND Korean Fried Chicken in the same place.
It is a passion project of a burger-lovin’ couple – food connoisseur Daniel Koh and Director Lee Mihyun – that gave rise to Burger+.
They wanted to take people away from the usual burger routine into a gourmet fast food experience with affordable premium burgers in a stylish setting.
Perhaps this question comes to your mind. What makes a Korean Burger “Korean”?
A lot is about the sauce.
Over here, other than they have created the “B+ Sauce” which has a sweetish-honeyed-savoury take. The sauce can be found in a couple of their burgers.
These knock-out K-burgers use buns made in-house using potato flour. Baking is done daily so you get hot, fluffy buns in every burger.
The meat patty, the heart of the burger, is made from premium beef imported from the US. The cheese is also US-sourced and is exclusive to Singapore.
Read on to find out what’s in store at Burger+, the newest, hottest burger joint at Orchard Road:
Truffle Burger ($21)
Those truffle shavings? They’re the real deal.
The decadent Truffle Burger is a blissful combination of wild truffle shavings, truffle puree, and truffle mayo for that extreme umami flavour.
Plus, this burger has sautéed button mushrooms, baby romaine lettuce, and seared onions to mingle with the juicy, sizzling hot US-beef patty on a bed of freshly-baked buttered potato bun.
Take a bite, and let the aroma hit your nose.
Cheese Burger ($13.80), Double Cheeseburger ($19.50)
The signature Cheeseburger boasts of a special 130g beef-blend patty with an optimum fat-to-lean ratio. This makes the patty juicy enough with a good meaty texture.
Also comes with baby romaine lettuce and tomatoes for freshness in each bite.
The accompanying sauce, secret-recipe B+ Sauce, complements the flavour of the meat and doesn’t overpower it.
The layer of aburi cheese further enhances it.
Double the patty, double the cheese and you get the Double Cheeseburger for twice the indulgence.
Korean Bulgogi Burger ($13.80)
Another must-try item with that signature Korean flair is the Korean Bulgogi Burger, featuring a special sweet Bulgogi glaze and Bulgogi mayonnaise.
A house-made buttered potato bun sandwiches a juicy, premium 130g US-beef patty with seared onions, baby romaine lettuce, and another dose of mayo.
This is not that much of an ingredients-packed burger, so that diners can appreciate the uniqueness of the bulgogi sauce.
Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger ($19.50)
Although burgers are all about indulgence, you can add some heart-healthy avocado to lessen the guilt somehow and throw in a creamy, buttery texture to the mix.
This gourmet burger comes with the same buttered potato bun; the difference is in the crispy bacon and contrasted with creamy slices of fresh avocado.
Bulgogi Hotdog ($11.60 / $12.40)
Remember the burgerfied Bulgogi? Take that, morph it to a hotdog format and you get Bulgogi Hotdog.
You get a juicy, cheesy sausage as the main meat of this sandwich, lying on a fresh-baked hotdog bun.
The same special Bulgogi glaze and Bulgogi mayo are slathered on the sausage, then topped with slices of smoked bacon, sautéed sweet onions, parmesan shavings, chopped English parsley and paprika powder.
You can choose between a Chicken Sausage ($11.60) and the Pork Sausage ($12.40).
Honey Chicken ($15.80 for half, $28.20 for whole)
Moving on to the signature Korean Fried Chicken. Using chicken that is always fresh, never frozen, this dish is available in Mix Parts, Drumsticks, or Wingettes & Drumettes
What I liked is there are variable options, depending if you come dine as an individual or with a group. Drumsticks are priced at $10.80 for 3pcs, $19.80 for 6pcs, $29.80 for 9pcs; while Wingettes & Drumettes go at $9.20 for 6pcs, $17.20 for 12pcs, $24.80 for 18pcs.
Order the all-time favourite Honey Chicken, glazed with the candy sweet honey sauce, another B+ signature sauce.
I personally preferred the Wingettes & Drumettes which are more manageable to eat, and also better marinated on the inside.
Yangnyeom Fried Chicken ($15.80 for half, $28.20 for whole)
The Yangnyeom Fried Chicken found its way to the menu as it is co-founder Lee Mihyun’s childhood favourite.
This traditional Korean fried chicken dish was sweet, tangy and tingly. What I enjoyed was the stickiness of the sauce, that did remind me of the ones I had in Seoul.
This is not as spicy as you would have thought, so if you want more heat, go for the Hot Yangnyeom version.
Truffle Fries ($9.80 for regular, $12.80 for large)
Nibblers will want to order some fries on the side, a burger’s lovey-dovey pair on the plate. You get to choose from the aromatic Garlic Fries, Cheese Fries, crisp-fried Prawn Fritters, or the absolutely indulgent Truffle Fries.
The crisp deep-fried potato fries are peppered with truffle powder, REAL truffle shavings (and not just truffle oil), and a duo of cheese-parmesan & cheddar.
To further amplify the truffle-ness, it is finished with a drizzling of truffle oil with chopped English parsley, then served with home-made truffle mayo as a dip.
I think one of the best real Truffle Fries you can find in Singapore at this price.
Woo Yu Jollypong Ice Cream ($5.80)
End your meal K-style with a serving of Woo Yu Jollypong Ice cream. Jollypong is a puffed rice snack and one of Korea’s favourite cereal made by CROWN Company.
These crunchy pieces are used as topping for this dessert to add that textural contrast.
A cool and playful indulgence (for the kids-at-heart).
Check out their menu which also features a selection of Burger+ exclusive Korean beers, wines, ice cream and milkshakes – get the Hazelnut and Avocado ones.
