Kraze For More

1 June 2011 One Comment

When we posted our previous review of Kraze Burgers, we never expected it to be such a popular read; it currently ranks among the top few posts on this site. The article was originally meant to be short and sweet, just a quick run through of the restaurant and its burgers; but we now think that perhaps it could use additional review of several more items. Hence several days ago we decided to go down to the Kraze Burgers outlet at Marina Bay Sands for another tasting session, and share our experiences with you once more.

So here it is, we present to you our supplemental review on Kraze Burgers!

As soon as we were seated, our fingers ran through the pages of the menu booklet, flipping it back and forth, looking for interesting items to sample. One good thing about Kraze Burgers is that unlike most other fast food chains, one need not queue at the counter to place their order. The staff is quite efficient in taking orders and food is delivered promptly. In this regard, we give Kraze Burgers the thumbs up.

At the top of our ‘must try’ list on this visit was the chili fries, which was previously not available. In recent years, many fast food chains in Singapore (e.g. Wendy’s, Carl’s Jr) begun serving their own style of chili fries to customers. We found these to be great alternatives to the traditional, plain french fries that we are all familiar with. The chili topping, of course, is what separate good chili fries from the bad, and in this case we were really keen to try the Kraze Burgers’ version. Chili aside, the crew picked two additional items from the menu, the Maximum burger and The Club sandwich.

The chili fries was first to arrive, looking every bit as good as shown in the menu. Not wanting to delay any longer, we quickly took a few bites. The fries were piping hot and crunchy, but there was something lacking with the chili topping. It was, well, rather bland in our opinion. We like some meatiness in our chili, but couldn’t find enough of it in Kraze Burgers’ chili toppings. The raw onion garnish didn’t help the matter either. Whenever we took a bite of the onion bits, they quickly overpowered other flavors in the sauce. I guess we would stick to the regular fries on our future visits.

The Maximum Burger

Shortly after tasting the chili fries, a waitress came around and served us our Maximum burger and The Club sandwich. There was something different with the burger this time. The Maximum burger, unlike the other two we had previously, was served with a scoop of sweet corn and beans on the side. An improvement, or so we thought; at least now we have some sides to go with the burger (although the amount was measly). The Maximum burger was supposed to come with a spicy sauce, and knowing how Koreans like their food spicy, we were expecting a really hot sauce. However, it didn’t turn out that way. Maybe Kraze Burgers had the worldwide market in mind and thus didn’t go all out with the spicy sauce, or our crew members have reached a whole new level of tolerance for spicy food. The sauce was really mild (unless perhaps to people who totally couldn’t stand any amount of spiciness in their food), and on the sweet side. The rest of the burger was great; the sweet caramelized onions matched well with the juicy beef patty and melted cheese. We also loved the burger buns.

The Club Sandwich from Kraze Burgers

The Club Sandwich

The Club sandwich was served without sides. One half was secured with a wooden pick while the other was left standing on its side, looking a little ‘deconstructed’ by the time the dish reached our table. Despite its looks however, the sandwich was probably the best tasting item we’ve had so far. It didn’t fail our expectations, as far as sandwiches were concerned. There were plenty of greens, the taste was good and substantial fillings to fill a hungry stomach.

We left Kraze Burger pretty satisfied, having learnt to love Kraze Burgers as the decent, albeit overpriced joint that it is.
