There's no doubt that Singaporeans have a voracious appetite for burgers. In fact, the nation went frenzy for iconic American hamburger chains like Shake Shack, Black Tap and Fatburger when they settled on our sunny shores. Most of these joints pride themselves in dishing out fluffy buns and juicy patties only. But at London's Burger & Lobster, beef is not the solo star on its core menu. Crustaceans command attention too.
Located at Jewel Changi Airport, the Singapore outpost of this famed luxe-casual eatery embraced the dome's lush vegetation with al fresco dining. From certain angles, you can gaze at the buzz-worthy vortex waterfall while dealing with hunger. Heads up to diners looking to have an intimate dinner: BGM from Jewel's HSBC Rain Vortex Light Show will drown all conversations at hourly intervals starting from 7:30 pm for a couple of minutes. So, avoid popping any proposals at those timings.
Protein lovers will exult at the meat and seafood-heavy mains, especially the Singapore-exclusive Sambal Glazed Lobster. Prepare yourself for a fiery sensation, thanks to the sauce's spicy fusion of dried shrimp, chilli and Asian spices. Otherwise, order the Original Lobster (choose either Grilled or Steamed) if your tongue detests chilli. This allows you to savour the lobsters' succulent sweet flesh, flown-in freshly from Nova Scotia, Canada.
Carnivores big on red meat can get their fix with The Mayfair. Comprising a juicy 170g grilled Nebraskan beef patty, this prime burger is paired up with house-made pickles, onions and a secret B&L burger sauce for a wholesome treat. Thirsty? Cleanse your palate with some B&L Pineapple Iced Tea—a refreshing mix of black tea, pineapple puree, lemon juice and palm sugar.
The spotlight's definitely on the renowned Original Roll. From its fragrant toasted brioche roll slathered in butter to the chunky and tender lobster meat, the flavour and texture are faultless. In addition, the crunchy side salad will please those who need to hit their vegetable quota for the day. Any remaining garlic butter lemon sauce left? Dip your golden fries into it for an addictive umami bite.
