:lol:


Wow! That's the beauty of specialization: just work on one thing til you perfect it!

Pakjohn's original post made me curious about the Marmalade Pantry's burger. Once I'm back in SG, I'll go there and try it. :)

Just to clarify, were you referring to just the plain burger or the one with the foie gras?

I didn't try the foie Gras burger so I can't comment on it. I had the regular burger and fries. The thing I liked about the burger is that it's just really good ground beef, not greasy, not fancy, just rich beef flavor.

The fries were pretty good and I hear the deserts are exceptional also, but cannot say as I didn't have desert.

I shouldn't be so hard on Carls, a lot of people eat them and in moderation they won't hurt you. :D Hope you enjoy Geekette!

Pakjohn, if you are referring to me as a troll, then please know that I find that extremely hurtful, disturbing and disappointing.

sierra, I fail to see how you can see any negatives, in terms of response, in rnt's post. Time to relax a little.

If anything the gristle and fat comment could, by the very thin-skinned, be seen as a bit aggro . . . no pain, no shame, no issue.

I'll stick with Carl's Jr. in Singapore, easily available and not too pricey.

Came across Carl's Jr in KL. Did a skip there as we were having pork deficiency.... " No Babi la.. this one Halal one"

The "Jazz Burger" at Harry's isn't too bad. Pakjohn, how much is the burger at Marmalade?

I don't remember exactly, but I recall around 22 or 23 dollars. I pay 5 to 7 dollars for tea at most of the resturaunts around CBD so figure high cost goes with the neighborhood. :)

Thank you Quasi, what you lack in looks you more than make up for in charm. :kiss: It is a bit laughable -- imagine me... a housebound troll! :roll:

Speaking of burgers, my son reminded me of Morton's prime sirloin burger:

oh pakjohn - did you never sample the BLT at the Jakarta Hard Rock? It was beef shaped like bacon... and the color of bacon.. but definitely not bacon! I was so psyched to see it on the menu and was like "what the????" when it came out :o

I've always been partial to a good ol' Cowboy burger from Brewerkz... figure it's about the best bang for your buck and consistently good and when ordered medium...it actually is medium! Besides, lots of good tasty cheap beer to go along with it! Will have to check out some of the other recommendations here...

The bun is the least important part for me, as generally i don't eat the top half anyway.
