$2 for a burger? Yes, it is quite unbelievable that one can still find
quality gourmet burgers at such an affordable price (other than McDonald's).
This petite slider that punches above the rest comes from Stirling, one of the
restaurants along the stretch of food outlets opposite Beauty World Centre in
Upp. Bukit Timah Road.
combined with the cheese, roma tomatoes, garlic aioli, makes for a seriously
good bite. This is so good that it makes logical and monetary sense to go full
course for the Sirloin Steak Burger ($19+). With a moist and plump Sirloin patty,
snuggled in between two halves of a lightly toasted bun, this is even more
irresistible because of the Jack Daniel infused Shitake mushroom sauce and
zesty coleslaw-like salad that softens the bottom bun.
other than the slow charcoal grilled steaks that is served with avocado butter ($35+).
Both the sirloin and rib-eye have a nice glorious char outside and luscious red
interior but sirloin turned out to be the more flavourful and tender cut with a
soft pleasant chew even though it has less fat than the ribeye.
($25+) did not forge a deep impression because the meat were dry and

and slightly crisp Greek cheese, which gets a fresh bright punch from the
dressing and tomatoes. Even fruits like watermelon ($12+) were not saved from the hot

slathered in the right amount of dressing, with crispy bits of croutons and
bacon adding to the decadence.
tea waffles or crepe as grill items. If dessert is a must, the Mud Pie ($8+) is a dependable choice as it is
hard to go wrong with ready-made ice cream and Oreo cookies. However, I would
devote the space reserved originally for desserts, all for another plate of Crispy King Salmon ($23+).
perfectly cooked interior, this dish is testament of the chef's proficiency. I
like the idea of using sesame seeds, seaweed flakes in the creamy mash and the
savoury roe toppings as they truly enhanced the taste of the moist pink flesh.
If someone were to ask me where in Singapore has the best pan-seared salmon, I
would say Stirling.
