I'm always on the lookout for an awesome burger, like those drool-worthy ones on Man Versus Food. Sadly, I haven't meet one in Singapore that's close to what I have imagined it to be. I thought I saw a glimpse of hope when Charlie and Co turn up but well, didn't quite happen.
Located at the Ion Orchard Food Hall, the gourmet burger joint from Down Under was pretty empty even as the other food places were way packed. A simple newspaper-styled menu, order at the counter, grab a number stand and wait for your stuff to be delivered to you.
Onion Rings ($7.00), Lemon Crush ($4.00)
Paired with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, I thought there was too much flour coating for the rings. And at this price, I would probably be better off with double portion from Carl's Junior. The fizzy lemonade, by the way, wasn't very exciting too.
All Day Charlie Breakfast Burger ($14.00), South American Burger ($15.00)
For those still craving for all day breakfast, this one might suit you well with bacon strips, cheese and sunny side up, though yet again, there wasn't much of a wow factor. The other one, essentially a Australian Wagyu patty with caramelized onions was actually a tad dry beneath the layer of sauce.
Bill for two was $40.00 with no surcharges. Sharing only one side and a drink, I thought it was pretty pricey and quality wasn't quite worth what we paid for. Oh well, the search continues then.
