When a burger spot received countless positive reviews, it’s safe to say that their burgers are going to be pretty inviting.
Housed within the all-in-one dining destination Picnic at Wisma Atria, you will find Omakase Burger store — an American-style gourmet burger restaurant founded by former investment banker turned entrepreneur Cheng Hsin Yao.
Smashing burgers since 2012, Omakase Burger has been committed to serving the perfect burger to its faithful customers and has also been consistently refining and improving its beef patty and burger bun recipe. In its recent pursuit for perfection, Cheng and his team revealed newly-perfected ‘five-star’ burgers crafted with global favourite Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls from Pennsylvania in the United States.
The world-famous Martin’s potato rolls is considered by many to be the most ideal of a burger bun, and attaches itself to renowned chefs like Chef David Chang, Chef Bobby Flay and famed burger chain Shake Shack. This is the very first time that the legendary Martin’s potato rolls is making its appearance in Singapore and South East Asia.
The pillowy-soft potato bun is made with high-protein wheat flour, potato starch, milk, butter, sugar and vegetable oil, plus a little turmeric for flavour and colour. The highly resilient squishy bun is slightly sweet, but on the whole, buttery and the addition of potato flakes in the dough yields to a light, moist and delicate crumb which help better absorb juices from the beef patties.
In addition to making a terrific burger with Martin’s potato rolls, Omakase Burger also gives its beef patty a winning shot to stardom — introducing the 100% USDA Choice Grade beef made from a secret blend of FOUR premium cuts that was carefully selected and designed to maximise taste, texture, flavour and juiciness.
Out of the 4 varying premium cuts, two cuts of beef identified were chuck and short ribs — which resulted in a rich, deeply meaty tasting burger that stood up well with accompaniments of Omakase Burger 13-ingredients secret sauce, imported American cheese, fresh crisp lettuce and juicy tomatoes sandwiched inside the cushiony bun with enough backbone to hold its shape.
If you are looking to experience the ‘upgraded’ version of Omakase Burger, the signature Omakase Cheeseburger (A la carte $16.90 / Set $18.90) featuring new potato buns and beef patty, along with other stellar range of burgers and sides will be available from 23rd November 2018.
Often hard to procure, but back by popular demand, Omakase Burger brings back its prized ingredient – Applewood bacon presented in the Omakase Apple Smoked Bacon Cheeseburger (A la carte $19.90 / Set $22.90). The high quality uncured bacon is made with hormone-and-antibiotic-free pork line from America and then slow-smoked over Applewood chips for that unbeatable flavour with hints of smoky notes.
To best complement Omakase Burger, get the NEW homemade Chilli Cheese Fries ($6.90) or other premium sides like Truffle Fries, Cheese Fries, Beef Tallow Fries and a Root Beer Float ($5.90) to complete the package.
If you are not a fan of hearty meatiness of a Cheeseburger, Omakase Burger offers other mains such as Chicken Sandwich ($16.90), Baked Parmesan Chicken ($17.90), and a Vegetarian Burger ($16.90) option on the menu.
But, the answer to a gratuitous feasting is definitely still a Cheeseburger, and it’s very hard to beat. Although there’s much more burger competition out there now, Omakase Burger has no problem holding the fort as one of the best gourmet burgers in Singapore.
