Originating from Germany, HANS IM GLÜCK German Burgergrill had recently opened its first outpost in Singapore along Orchard Road beside the Royal Thai Embassy. HANS IM GLÜCK German Burgergrill is strategically located closer to Tanglin instead of the stretch towards Somerset; perhaps a move to be a little bit away from the crowd and also to target the expats in the area. The menu here seems to cater to everyone; there are several options for vegetarians and vegans, while there is an extensive se
All burgers come with a standard set of toppings such as fresh lettuce, red onions, sun-ripened tomatoes and their signature HANS IM GLÜCK sauce; one can also opt for the burger to come with Sourdough Buns, Wholemeal Buns or Naked (no buns). We were initially spoilt for choice, but ended up with the Alsdann ($17++ ala-carte, $22++ set lunch) in the “Juicy Beef Burgers” section of the menu opting for the Sourdough bun option; our choice of side was the Sweet Potato Fries which came in a pretty generous portion by the side. Being sourdough lovers, we thought that the bun wasn’t quite as sour from the fermentation as we thought it would be, while the bun was also more light and fluffy than the typical sourdough — not that we are complaining however; the sourdough buns here seemingly complimented the fact that it was meant to be a burger bun instead of one that was made for a sandwich. The Alsdann came with other condiments such as Grilled Pear, Mild Blue Cheese Sauce and Walnuts — a combination that seemingly felt unconventional. All the elements worked well though; the nutty crunch acted as a neutral flavour that balances out the sweet and juicy, soft pears and the distinct yet light flavours of the blue cheese, while the red onions add a tinge of numbness to the entire burger along with a mustard-like flavour within the sauce. The beef patty was a little bit on the dry side, though wasn’t particularly gamey, though seemingly still worked very well with all the condiments otherwise. Sweet Potato Fries were crisp with the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes being pretty evident; while good on their own, they were pretty addictive with their Tomato Barbecue sauce that is made available at every table — a must try!
We also had a go on their chicken burgers, opting for the Vogelwild ($14++ ala-carte, $19++ set lunch) — grilled chicken breast is used for the burger patties for all their chicken burgers, which makes them a healthier option to go for here. The Vogelwild comes with sour cream chive sauce and fried onions, while we opted for the Sourdough bun and the Krautnolle. Grilled chicken breast is actually pretty well crusted on the outside, though the flesh, admittedly, could have been a little bit moister. That being said, the Vogelwild was a safe option; the sour cream just provided some creaminess and a light tanginess to offset the fried onions within, whilst coming with the same standard condiments such as fresh lettuce, red onions, sun-ripened tomatoes and their signature HANS IM GLÜCK sauce. The Krautnolle is somewhat similar to sauerkraut, considering how the Krautnolle is a traditional German white cabbage salad with potato dressing; not too wet with a very light tangy flavour that helps to refresh the tastebuds in between bites of the burger.
