There is a new burger joint in Wisma Atrium, Burger Plus. Giant posters of it have been sprouting up in Orchard MRT station and also along the underground connection between Ngee Ann city and Wisma Atrium. Intrigued by it, we decided to give it a try.
It’s located at level 2 of Wisma Atrium and it’s basically like a fastfood establishment. It’s free sitting and nobody cares whether you have a seat before ordering because it’s a fastfood establish and not a restaurant. So you have been warned. Having said that, some of the staff are still helpful enough to try and find seats.
The menu is pretty straight forward with burgers, hotdogs, fries and Korean fried chicken. Assuming this is a Korean burger joint, we thought there might have been more Korean fusion burgers but there’s only a bulgogi burger/hotdog option. Needless to say, the Korean fried chicken are the main items that are Korean.
I ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger and a bottle of 777 beer while Mrs Foodbuilicious ordered the Soy Garlic Fried Chicken since she’s not so convinced that Korean burgers are comparable to American burgers. We added a basket of truffle fries as side dish.
First bite into the Bacon Cheeseburger brought me to a rude awakening that this is not a typical burger joint. The beef patty is dry unlike bugers from Fat Papas, Fat Boy or Three Buns. A good burger is supposed to be juicy and you get to have your hands dirty after finishing a burger. Burger Plus is not that kind of joint. Overall, the Bacon Cheeseburger is somewhat tame and uninteresting.
Mrs Foodbuilicious’ critique of the Soy Garlic Fried Chicken wasn’t flattering; “4 Fingers’ fried chicken is better”. The flavour of soy garlic pales in comparison to the ones in 4 Fingers and the experience doesn’t feel as satisfying.
The truffle fries is well… fries sprayed with “truffle” oil. Nothing exciting to write about. By now if you have not eaten truffle fries in Singapore, you clearly have not been eating out much. Enough critique of the food. 777 beer is light and refreshing with a faint aftertaste. Their beer selection is actually more interesting than their food. That comment isn’t meant as a compliment.
