12/12/12 is a memorable date. I and my colleagues decided to have our advanced Christmas Party on this day. Upon reaching ‘The HandBurger’ at Raffles City, we were greeted by a polite waiter who guided us to a table seat. We sat at the central of the shop. Actually I prefer the corner’s seats; I don’t like the feeling that peoples watching at us in the open area. Yet, we still enjoyed the laughter ourselves without thinking about others around us.
Well, let’s start with the Menu. The HandBurger provides a huge range of choices, both fried and grilled one for you to choose. There are eight main categories, including Poultry Burgers, Beef Burgers, Lamb/Pork Burgers, Seafood/Vegetarian Burgers, Sides & Buns, Soups & Salads, Everything else (Kid’s meal), and Drinks.
Fries and Rings
Then we picked Chunky Fries ($6.80) and Onion rings ($6.80) as our side dishes. I wouldn’t say it was fantastic, but indeed it was crunchy and enough to satisfy us.
Of course I ordered burger; Battered Dory ($15.80) which has crispy fried dory fish inside a toasted honey wholewheat multigrain bun crispy fried dory fish with the Spicy Tartar Sauce on the top and lettuce, tomato at the bottom. I used my hand to eat, since it called Handburger. The dory fish was not too salty and the flesh was soft. It was best eaten if you mix up with spicy tartar sauce.
While the guy sat beside me, Paul ordered Happy Lamburger ($17.80) which is a toasted rustic bun with grilled lamb and sunny side-up egg. I bitted once, it was firm but tender and full of lamb aroma. For lamb lovers, I am sure you will like it very much.
I have no chance to try out this! The HandBurger Original ($13.80) was ordered by Carren, but she sat too far from me. It is the signature main course which is toasted caramelized onion bun with grilled beef mixed up with sweet onion jam and handmade BBQ sauce. Too bad, I will come again for this beef burger and also other signature burgers.
For drink, I ordered Strawberry MilkShake ($4.50). Look at the pinky juice with the strawberry on top, it was so attractive. A bit sour and sweet afterwards filled up my mouth when I was drinking it. Great dessert as it was flavourful surprisingly.
Merry X'mas in Advance to all
Overall, we are satisfied with our foods and enjoy dining here although it was quite crowded as 7.00pm was a peak dinner hour. Besides, we enjoyed the CitiBank Credit Card promotion, 1-for-1 drinks. We spent almost $250.00 for 10 persons. Portion wise, don’t worry, it will be enough for a normal meal.
