Feels like family
Previously named The Burger Shack, this place is where I spent many a day slogging over my revision. The food is good for the prices - they offer Fish n' Chips for below $10, and the fish really just flakes apart in your mouth. The tartar sauce is good, and the fries are delectable. I normally order the wings, and these, too, are well-fried. I then drown the wings in chili sauce and the curry powder provided, and it always makes for a good taste experience.
This place feels so old-school, and dining in it at night, when everything outside is dark, gives you a kind of out-of-Singapore-into-a-foreign-place-with-cute-kitschy-vintage-diners experience. The service staff are really nice and amicable people too, I especially like the old lady who's always really friendly and warm and grandmotherly.
While this isn't exactly gourmet dining with the most quiet atmosphere, and the smell of BBQ is likely to linger on your hair, clothes and skin, sticking to you like glitter, this is one of my favourite eateries in Singapore.
After reading an article about Little Hiro on this very site, I’ve been wanting to visit to try out their Ramen Burgers!
The place is about a 10-minute walk from Botanic Gardens MRT and its baby blue exterior and red signage is hard to miss. It even has a unique bear mascot, further adding on to the friendly vibe of this restaurant.
The menu board above the cashier counter was quite cluttered, making it a bit difficult to figure out which is which. We ended up ordering one each of their two available Ramen Burgers. For an extra $2.80, students get to add on fries and a drink to make it meal. Really worth it, if you ask me.
We were quite surprised at the generous portion but thoroughly enjoyed it. The Ramen Burger was really interesting and tasty too. One thing that bothered me slightly though, was that quite a lot of disposables (despite being Cornware) are used here. From the spoons, forks, knives, to the cups the drinks come in. Seeing that a good majority of the people that visit Little Hiro are there to dine in, perhaps, using washable plates and cutlery would be a more eco-friendly option.
But overall, I enjoyed the food and ambience and wouldn’t mind a second visit the next time I’m in the area :)
