The largest Korean Burger Bar in Singapore Burger+ has closed both its Wisma Atria and Clarke Quay Central outlets.
Both Burger+’s Facebook and Instagram accounts have been de-activated.
While there are no social media posts announcing its closure, the current website reflects “WE ARE CLOSED.”
Burger+ is known for offering Korean-style fried chicken and more than 10 different burgers with premium US-imported beef patties. It opened the Clarke Quay Central outlet early 2020 with the intention of making it a late-night drinking and social gathering spot with large event space, but was unfortunately hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
[Original Entry Written In Jan 2020] Burger+ has launched the largest Korean Burger Bar in Singapore at Clarke Quay Central, with an expansive space that can sit up to 200 diners.
The trendy Korean burger joint with its first outlet at Wisma Atria aims to be somewhere people can head over from day to night.
It opens from 8am daily offering newly-introduced Korean breakfast toasts; has a menu of burgers, fried chicken and sides throughout the day; and opens till 1am on Friday and Saturday (11pm on the other days.)
There is something about the interior as well with different sections, also making it a vibrant event space.
As I walked in, I first noted the private seating area in a glass room with a chandelier.
There are booth seats for bigger groups, and smaller tables for those who prefer some me-time. In fact, I think it is the place where the entire class can come down for the outing, and probably find a good spot to chat-and-chill.
It has rather young vibes, with LED screenings playing K-pop MVs, neon lights and disco-like décor for the night’s out.
In terms of the food, expect Korean breakfast toasts, soft burgers, to authentic Korean fried chicken. Here’s more: (Prices indicated are NETT.)
Egg Toast Beef Bulgogi ($9.50, $10.90 for combo with hot Americano)
This is a new introduction from Burger+ available from 8am till 5pm, though I feel that should just offer this at night as well.
While there are a number of Korean toast shops in Singapore, I do think what they have to offer is one of the most hearty around.
What was appealing was the fluffy brioche that was pan-grilled till they are slightly crisp on the outside.
The highlight to some would be the runny yolk atop, which you are can break apart and let it ooze down to the meat fillings. Warning: can get slightly messy.
The beef bulgogi fillings of fresh minced beef, fragrant fried onions pan-fried with signature bulgogi sauce was satisfyingly yummy with all the juices and sweet-savoury flavours.
Egg Toast Avocado ($8.50, $9.90 for combo with hot Americano)
The other popular choice is the Egg Toast Avocado featuring the same fluffy broiche toast, filled with creamy scrambled eggs and avocado, then drizzled with sweet mayonnaise.
This is more guilt-free and easier-to-eat toast, especially when you like the creaminess of both avocadoes and eggs coming together. I wished that the eggs could have a more buttery flavour though.
Other options include Egg Toast with Bacon and Cheese ($7.50), and Egg Toast with Ham and Cheese ($7.50) – both included with scrambled eggs.
Korean Bulgogi Burger ($13.80)
Burger+ offers more than 10 different burgers, including the recommended classic Cheeseburger ($13.80), decadent Truffle Burger ($21), Mushroom Burger ($14.90), Chicky Burger ($7.90) and Fish Burger ($7.90).
A must-try Burger 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.
Worthy of mention are the buns made in-house using potato flour, plus baking is done daily so you get fresh and fluffy buns all the time.
Bacon Cheeseburger ($15.30)
A burger boasts of a special 130g beef-blend patty juicy enough with a good meaty texture, contrasted with bacon that added some crispiness and smokiness. (The meat patty is made from premium beef imported from the US, while the cheese is also US-sourced and exclusive to Singapore.)
Also comes with baby romaine lettuce and tomatoes for freshness in each bite.
The accompanying sauce which is the secret-recipe B+ Sauce, complements the flavour of the meat and doesn’t overpower it.
Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger ($17.20)
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.
Fried Chicken – Soy Garlic ($9.20 for 6 pieces of wingettes and drumettes)
Using chicken that is always fresh, never frozen, the Korean Fried Chicken is available in Mix Parts, Drumsticks, or Wingettes & Drumettes.
There are various options available: 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.
The all-time favourite is the Honey Chicken glazed with the candy sweet honey sauce; while the Yangnyeom Chicken would be sticky-sweet and just slightly-spicy.
If not, get the Soy Garlic Chicken with honeyed-sweetness and garlicky glaze.
Truffle Fries ($9.80 for regular, $12.80 for large)
Order some fries on the side with choices from the Chunky Fries, Garlic Fries, Cheese Fries, or 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.
It is finished with a drizzling of truffle oil with chopped English parsley, then served with home-made truffle mayo as a dip.
Prawn Fritters ($8.30 for 6 pieces, $14.60 for 12 pieces)
If you need more nibblers, also available are crispy Prawn Fritters served with with lemon tartar sauce and English parsley.
Korean Cocktails ($18.00 each)
Get your cameras ready for the in-house signature cocktails that come represented in boxes with dry-ice effect.
The Haribo Ju ($18) may raise some eyebrows with the familiar haribo gummies in a sweet soju cocktail concoction.
Crowd favourite would be the refreshing Yuza Ju ($18) with honey and yuzu in a sparkling finish; or Bong Bong Ju ($18) with green grape and mint.
