Question: How many burger joints can you pack into a little red dot?
Answer: As many as you can! At the time of this review I counted at least 10 burger joints scattered across this sunny island. While suffice to say I have tried more than 50% of my burger list only a few have been earmarked on my “re-visit” list.
With a car at our disposal, the chili padi and myself decided to give Relish a try. Relish was opened by the folks from Wild Rocket. It’s tucked away in a little corner inside Cluny Court in and around the Adam Road area. We arrived there just as the crew were finishing up dinner; when we checked on the web the operation hours stipulated said from 6pm when in actual fact it’s 6:30pm.
In tune with Wild Rocket the interior is clean and simple, clean simple lines of the decor juxtapose against the colorful mural adorning their feature wall, it certainly gives you a homely feel with large well spaced tables; a welcomed change to the crowded burger joints I’ve been to previously. After settling down we scoped the menu and ordered with baited breath.
Bacon Cheese Burger - SGD16
I opted to order their Bacon Cheese Burger and sadly I must say that I was rather disappointed with my burger; the bun itself was a little too firm not indicative of it supposedly being freshly baked. The meat patty itself was a tad dry and lacking in taste, perhaps a little too long on the hotplate, I wasn’t able to really taste the meat at all. The bacon was cooked just right and the relish itself was tasty enough but all that and a slice of emmental cheese sadly, was not enough to help save the dear burger.
The chili padi ordered the Blue Cheese burger which tasted so much better on all fronts; the bun was soft and springy and the cheese complimented the burger to a “T”.
Verdict: Sad to say my experience at Relish was pretty hit and miss, while the service and the ambiance of the place was great the burgers were a bit of a let down; based on my previous experience of eating at wild rocket (I’ve had nicer tasting burgers without having to pay a small fortune) I expected a whole lot more.
