Singapore - Relish

Great idea, fabulous concept but just a little lacking on the execution.

The menu was definitely inviting... burgers of every kind, with yummy toppings, sauces, etc. It was my first time so the test would be the classic bacon and cheese burger. Am not sure about the cut used but I didn't get enough of an affirmation that I was eating beef. I like my beef, be it steak or burger to have a minimum amount of beefiness to it, if that makes any sense. Salt and pepper is all the seasoning I need to enhance it. Overall the burger was tasty enough together with the bacon and cheese, but for a burger joint, I wasn't blown away.

The Hae Bee Spaghetti was cute. But it probably doesn't do much as a dish if one is not Singaporean or have a sweet tooth. Yeah, it was a tad sweet but for me, better sweet than spicy I suppose.

Dessert was competent - the chocolate cake with the lava inside was a good fix to a mediocre meal but not spectacular either.

For the concept, I hope Relish does well. Maybe it just needs a new chef, or a backup just in case the main one is just having a bad day.

  1. the best burger i had was in Vietnam, Nha Trang. How ironic. It was the humble bacon and cheese too. A definite good gauge for any burger joint or cafe serving up patties!
