Worth the Kraze?

I first tried Kraze Burgers at Marina Bay Sands, because, you know, burgers.
Forget about their advertising. Once you try to make a burger a ‘healthy’ burger, or market it as one, I’ll dismiss you. Scornfully. But I will still try your burger. Because burgers.

I totally was not feeling it. All I remembered was a burger, maybe a measly salad, and that’s it. The patty was so dry, the wheat bun was so dry, everything was just ARGH YOU’RE A LOUSY BURGER. Swore it off. Until my colleagues decided to up and hop to Plaza Singapura’s new wing to try the Kraze Burger joint there. Oh well, in a crowd, I don’t pipe up. We went for lunch and availed of the lunch promo.

Fat Boy’s The Burger Bar – Original is Best?

I went to my first Fat Boy’s in Kuala Lumpur – the flagship burger joint was located at the middle-aged hipster cranny of Solaris Publika, located at Mont Kiara. It got popular quickly due to its pork burgers. Non-Muslim Malaysians and expats are usually the quickest to lap up the next pork craze.

The first time I went, I thought it deserved some mention. The portions were generous for the price and the beef patties were seasoned well. Nothing to shout about the fries, which were frozen crinkle cuts and woefully undersalted.

Now, I wouldn’t go near it even if you paid me to. The past two times I went, the patties were dry and flavorless.

So how did the original Singapore version go?

Hello!

I’ve been crazy about burgers for a long time, so why not catalogue my burger adventures? Burgers should be considered a food group – in one single handful, you get carbs, protein, fibre, sodium, sugars…you get the picture. I suppose sandwiches count as a half burger too, but not as satisfying.

I will probably document other non-burger food journeys as well…we’ll see how it goes.

No burger is too big or small for this blog, so let’s get started!
