Just had the best burger I think I've ever had at Marmalade Pantry in the basement of Palais Renaissance, near Orchard Tower.

To top off finding a really good burger, the service was excellent as well.

Only downside to this place is minor and common, the "background" music was so loud you really had to talk loud to be heard across the table.


Whitecastle?? but then, you kinda gotta drive underwater! :P

Geez... haven't heard that one in a long time.... You've been in the mid-western U.S. and had a "slider"? lol! They do smell good though. I'm from the south and remember the Crystal burger.

Excellent recommendation! :D

Had you read the thread, you wouldn't need to ask. He has already told us once.

If Carl's isn't your deal, perhaps some ground organic wagyu from the butcher? I always thought the fat/grease from beef was where all the flavor came from, perhaps a contributing factor for why I gave it up?


oooooohhhh...Carl's. *drool*

Thanks!

I fish a little in Kuala lumpur, Malaysia on a charter boat, but my real preference is freshwater fishing and it's not really easy to do here. :(

These fish are striped bass from the South East U.S.

Wendys fries are addicting, especially with the salt they provide, it's finer than regular salt and sticks to the fries better than the course granules.

Their hamburgers were pretty good too, as I remember.

Yeah, I miss Rock fishing as well. The Chesterpeak (Chesapeake) used to be great for Rock before the massive pollution in the Bay. I like fishing Blues better, but prefer Rock for eatin'!
