For Special Occasions Only

I’ve heard rave reviews about this place, so when I was in Orchard one night I decided to have dinner at their Wisma outlet.
Conclusion: it’s utterly delicious. I had their Omakase Cheeseburger, with a side of sweet potato fries that I shared with my friends. I love the fact that you can choose how you’d like the beef patty to be done, so it suits your individual taste. The bun was soft, the lettuce and tomato fresh and crunchy, and the melted cheese deliciously gooey. The sweet potato fries were also a treat, and were really flavourful. The burger also seems smaller than average, but it is surprisingly filling.
At about $20 for my meal, Omakase Burger is definitely pricier than your average burger joint, but I enjoyed it tremendously. It’s not an everyday ‘makan’ place, but definitely one I’ll go to if I feel like treating myself or for any special occasion.

Mediocre burgers for (rather) high prices!

Led here by Instagram, I was disappointed to find that the Omakase selection was made up of mostly beef and pork burgers. After a 15 minute queue, I ordered the chicken burger.

The food was average at best. The prices are steep, so I was disappointed as it was not very value-for-money. One can spend close to $20 there for a full meal, inclusive of fries and a drink, and for that price the quality should be better!

I only had the chicken burger, and the beef and pork ones might be better. However, considering my expensive first visit there, I would think twice about coming back.

Best Burger Ever!!

As the title suggests, Omakase serves the best burger ever! I was already a huge fan of it when they first opened at The Grandstand. Now, with their new outlet at Wisma Atria and a revamp/improvement of their buns and introduced the applewood bacon, it is even better than before. I never thought that Omakase burger could actually improve because they were already so good before!

I am not a burger person but I love Omakase. It is the only burger that I eat, other than the fast food burgers. I usually order their bacon cheeseburger with a side of truffle fries or cheese fries. Both fries are equally good and I am always torn between the two. The beef patty in the burger is thick and juicy and the cheese really complements the beef so well. Their newly improved buns are softer yet it does not become too mushy after being soaked in the beef juices. The burgers are on the steep side but I really do not mind giving myself a good treat once in a while.

Their service however, at Wisma Atria can really be improved on. As it was my first time at the Wisma outlet, I placed my bag down on a chair first before heading off to place an order. Only to be told off by the staff to order first and they will assign me a seat later on. As it was off peak, I looked around and saw that less than half the eatery is filled.

Over-rated, Over-priced

"Tender and Juicy beef between the slice of lettuce, tomato and cheese, literally melting in your mouth." - That's how I'd describe the first bite of my Omakase cheese burger, it felt like heaven in my mouth. Everything was great about the place, I had no complains about it until I saw how much I had to pay for a cheese burger and truffle fries.

I thought it was rather pricey for a burger. Although my mouth felt like I had the best burger, I felt like it was a little over-rated and over-priced. And if I'm not wrong, the cheese burger was one of the cheaper burgers on the menu, but for a lemonade, truffle fries and that burger causing me near $30?

Yes I would go back, but it's not the kind of place where I would want to have a meal at often. It might be a place to satisfy my burger cravings, but I wouldn't see it as a place I could easily grab lunch at.

When I headed to the one at Wisma Atria, the concept of the place reminded me of a fast-food store. It was right at the front of Isetan, literally in the middle of nowhere and even the food was self-service. Maybe if you've never tried the place before, it's worth the try. But even though it's good, I don't think it's worth this amount.

Melt-in-the-mouth patty makes it worth the trip

Omakase Burger opening an outlet in the heart of town is a real godsend. I like burgers quite a lot. But Omakase obliterated every other burger I've had thus far. I have the classic Singaporean bug of hating queues but still queuing to see what all the fuss is about.

The Omakase Burger has an incredibly juicy and soft patty with a thin layer of cheese that seems to meld right into the body of the meat. Paired with a soft pillowy bun and some ridiculously tasty sauce, it's palm-sized heaven in every bite. My only gripe is the size. I would eat this burger two times over.

On to my other gripes. Service is practically non-existent with the queue and the automated buzzer system. If you're unlucky enough you even have to share tables with strangers. I'm not sure how much you're willing to sacrifice for this burger but it's worth at least one try. I'll be back.

Wonderful burger, but expensive.

Having heard raving reviews and seen countless Instagram posts of the food here, I finally made the long journey in to The Grandstand at Turf Club to find out what the hype was all about. I would have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the food there, although I left the restaurant still half-hungry and around $40 poorer.

I ordered the deluxe cheeseburger for myself, and the normal cheeseburger for my partner, as well as a side of truffle fries and a root beer float. I was quite disappointed at the size of the burger upon being served, as I had expected a lot more for a burger that costs you upwards of $15. Nevertheless, the burger patty was thick and juicy, and the deluxe comes loaded with mushrooms and onions in between a bun that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, which for me is pretty much the perfect combination for a burger. The truffle fries were thick cut and mediocre, that ironically, came in a serving too large and ran cold very quickly. However, the root beer float went very well with our meal, and it definitely helped us to enjoy our meal better (although rather pricey at around $5 per glass).

Although I did enjoy my meal and with no complaints over the food quality, I still think that it is quite a hefty amount to pay for a small burger and it's not worth the money or time spent traveling so far in.

Juicy patty and cheezy...cheese

Omakase burger has been touted by many as the "best" burger in Singapore. I love my cheeseburgers and so I made a trip there with my friend to check the place out. Located at Turf Club Road area, it was quite inaccessible and despite the help of a GPS, we still got lost. Maybe it's time to change a GPS. Any recommendations?? Ok back to the topic, we finally reached the place and we were impressed by the whole decor and ambience of the place. It felt very modern with the black and white minimalist design. It felt very clean and spacious. A really comfortable place to be at!

I ordered the omasake cheeseburger (as expected) and a portion of parmesan chicken (it is evident that I love my cheese and meat). The cheeseburger was really nice. Soft fluffy steamed buns, authentic meat and a generous serving of melted cheese. Oh the cheese... it went so well with the juicy and tender meat patty. I did not had my burger with any sauces because I don't like sauces in general. The burger was still in no way dry because of the juices from the beef patty!

The parmesan chicken was also great. Remember when KFC had this limited edition cheesy fried chicken? It tasted better than that. A more mature, well-executed, less oily version. I thoroughly enjoyed my food but the portion was really tiny. At $13.90 and $14.90 for the burger and chicken respectively, I was looking to receive a bigger portion? Or at least average-sized. I felt like I was eating a kids meal at an adult price point. I would come back again but definitely not so frequently as I would have if the price was lower. Otherwise, great place for beef burgers if you are okay with the tiny portion!

Decent but definitely not the best

So a while back, magazines were raving about this place, radio Djs like Bobby Tonelli was claiming it to be the best burger in town, instagram facebook were filled with photos of their best burger conquest. Clearly i cannot be missing out yeah?

So i headed down with my stomach full of expectations and it disappointed my friend and i greatly. Not that the burger tasted bad but it is just not THE BEST BURGER IN TOWN. It was even a little bland because you have to add the sauces on your own. The legendary Omakase Burger comes with no sauce so PLEASE REMEMBER TO SQUEEZE SOME CHILI AND MUSTARD OKAY?

I do like the root beer float that is available on the menu and i also quite like the truffle fries and cheese fries.

I however do not like the price of the burger because it is very much like a fast food joint except that i am paying 13.90 for the burger alone and 5-7 bucks for the fries.

It was also a little confusing since the counter girl asked if i stay around the neighbourhood and i said no and she did not give me a reason for asking me that question. It did not come across as though she was trying to make lame ass conversation as you clearly know Singaporeans do not do that. So i asked if there was a neighbourhood discount but she mumbled some gibberish that i cannot understand so till this day i cannot solve the mystery of why she threw me that question.

Anyway, come to The Grandstand for a lazy afternoon and eat some decent burger. My friend however commented, "We take Mcdonald's for granted, they actually make the best burgers. Look at the double cheese, i ate 4 of them the other day." Well, there is definitely some truth to that.

P/s you can have 7 double cheese burger for the price you pay for 1 omakase.
