K and I checked out the newly opened BERGS along East Coast Road. It is their fourth branch in Singapore and are known for their “gourmet burgers”.
The small standee on the table featured The BFB which has the full works – 2 Beef Patties, Streaky Bacon, Pineapple, Beetroot, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Edam Cheese, Aioli & Bergs Sauce. It looked really tall and intimidating and we decided to share The Alamack and The Berg with Cheese instead.
The burgers come in 2 sizes – BERGS size (5’) and Small (4”). And you can top up for fries and an ice lemon tea or lemonade.
(Lightly Crumbed Fish, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Dill Tartare & Aioli)
I am usually wary of fish burgers especially if the fish fillet has a thick batter; you end up tasting mostly batter and oil. But The Alamack was none of that! It was very lightly crumbed and the fish kept its juices without being oily at all. The dill tartare gave it a unique herby flavour and sets it apart from other fish burgers.
The Berg with Cheese
(Prime Beef Pattie, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Aioli & Bergs Sauce and your choice of Swiss, Brie or Edam cheese)
On recommendation of the server, we chose the Edam cheese. But quite frankly, I hardly tasted the cheese. The Bergs sauce (which tasted quite like BBQ sauce) was overly sweet and overpowering for me and I had to scrap off some of it. The beef patty was also on the dry side. I wasn’t too impressed with this burger.
I would return for The Alamack. The menu also features interesting burgers like The Marrakech (Spiced Lamb Pattie, Mint Yoghurt, Beetroot, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, & Aioli) and Good Falla (Falafel, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Aioli & Lemon Yoghurt) which I am keen to try. Good thing BERGS is just in the neighbourhood.
