Really Good Burgers
Sometimes, you wonder around with your friends and chance upon a hidden gem and you ask yourself where has this gem been all your life. This was what my friends and I thought when we first ate at Rock & Ash.
For around $10 to $15, you get a burger of pretty commendable size, free flow of soft drinks and free flow of the soup of the day. I would describe the burger as unique, in a positive way. You get a choice of meat patty (beef, pork and lamb) and a selection of flavours. I must say some of the creative flavours are really special and taste pretty amazing, like the caramel one. They make burgers from typical fast food restaurants taste banal and put them to shame. If you're under the impression that all burgers would taste similar, which was what my friends and I thought initially, prepared to be proven wrong. There are also other main course other than burgers, but they aren't as appealing.
My only gripe is how the free flow of drinks and soup aren't worth much. I don't drink soft drinks, limiting my option of drinks to only ice lemon tea or ice water. The soup is nothing out of the ordinary, and my friends and I found it to be slightly below average. In other words, if you're visiting Rock & Ash, you should only be doing so for the burgers.
The service is only average. A man who I believe is the manager is slightly overbearing and he interrupts much more than required. I know I'm nitpicking, but the thought that he may pop up in the middle of a private conversation, telling us things we already know like where the drink bar is, is an annoying one. The restaurant is so small, we've gotta be blind to not know where the drink bar is.
All in all, Rock & Ash is a nice place to chill out at, provided you like burgers enough to not mind paying for free flow of drinks and soup that aren't worth.
I popped in to the restaurant because I was looking for a quick afternoon snack and taking a break from all my shopping. The food was unremarkable and the identity of the place felt a little confused; the manner of placing orders was akin to that of a fast food chain where you place your order at a counter and yet the set-up of the place seemed like a bistro.
I tried their cheesy fries and a drink, enjoyed a promotion of theirs whereby you "like" them on Facebook and receive a discount on your order. I might return if I was in the area but I would not go specifically to have a meal there.
