We were craving burgers this Sunday and decided to check out this burger joint along Evans Road. Really felt the festive spirit seeping into us with the lovely Christmas decorations and cheerful lunchtime chatter. The place is spacious, with seats indoors and al fresco options as well. It was pretty small indoors, but given that it was an order and self-collect system,turnover was quick and it didn’t take too long for our food to be served.
Before we get to the burger, I ordered an Eggs Benedict ($15) as usual with my Hollandaise sauce on the side and with an extra egg just because.
Sure, it’s boring Sunday food but I need my protein and I was curious to see how they did their all-day breakfasts.
I wasn’t impressed. These weren’t poached eggs. They were Onsen eggs. While I love my sous vide eggs with a fiery passion, this just didn’t quite go with the heavy hams and soggy muffins. The salad dressing was wonderful. But sadly, that was it.
Then came the star of the meal — the Fullblood Wagyu Burger ($26).
This was a Blackmore 100% Fullblood Wagyu Patty with Butterhead Lettuce, Sliced Tomatoes, Beer Caramelised Onions, Cheddar Cheese and Wildfire’s Signature Master Sauce.
The patty was incredibly juicy, the pillows of toasted poppyseed buns were lightly buttered and those onions really pulled all the flavours together. The signature Master Sauce had a mild hint of horseradish which gave it an interesting, subtle kick. It was a pretty decent burger. If I had one complaint it would be the portion size. For $26, I expected something at least a guy with a hearty appetite could get full on. But this wasn’t the case. The fries were crispy and well-seasoned with salt and pepper though and accompanied the burger well.
Looking back, we might have gone more adventurous with the unique Asian Burgers instead of the classics. They have a Chicken Sriracha Burger ($16), the Umami Burger ($17) with oven-baked mushrooms in umami dust with parmesan crisp.
Would we come back? Maybe. The burgers are pretty delicious. But with stiff competitors in the wings and a somewhat secluded location, it needs to be more value for money or offer exceptional options to make a real impression.
