Burgs by Project Warung is a stall that is well-known by those familiar with Golden Mile Food Centre for their quality gourmet burgers that are affordably priced. Started by three young chefs, Burgs has been changing the halal culinary scene ever since they opened for business three years back.
They provide a menu of six burgers that each comes with a side of freshly fried Russet burbank fries at a price competitive enough to match a fast food joint.
Their top-selling item—and also our favourite—is Burgs’ Bacon & Cheese Burger. A handcrafted beef patty, smoked turkey bacon, homemade BBQ sauce, and American cheese are sandwiched in between freshly baked buns seared with their iconic ‘B’ logo stamp. A decently thick single patty burger costs S$7 but if you have a voracious appetite, get a pimped up burger with second patty for a total of S$9.50.
For a more decadent stack, you can even add on a Sunny Side Up (S$0.60), a slice of American Cheese (S$0.60), Bonito Flakes (S$1), Nacho Cheese (S$1), Turkey Bacon (S$1.60), Battered Fish (S$2), another Beef Patty (S$2.50), or Pulled Brisket (S$2.50).
Their Hickory Smoked Beef Brisket Burger (S$6 for single, S$8.50 for double) is touted as the must-try. It is a sweetish burger packed with moist beef brisket that is braised for 72 hours for a mouthful of tender meat that is topped with crunchy homemade coleslaw and homemade BBQ sauce for added smokiness. This is a messy burger to eat but is full of bovine flavour.
Do also try the Burgs’ Classic Cheese Burger (S$5.50 for single, S$8 for double), which is a local rendition of the classic American cheese burger. When taken immediately, the buns are warm and soft. It features a handcrafted beef patty, Burgs’ signature sauce, pickled green chilli in place of jalapeños, American cheese, and crispy fried shallots in place of caramelised onions.
Otherwise, for a shift away from beef, their Teriyaki Chicken Burger (S$5.90 for single, S$7.90 for double) is an interesting take. A generous amount of bonito flakes garnishes a marinated grilled chicken thigh and homemade coleslaw. Add a sunny side-up to this stack to enjoy it like a Ramly burger that has a lingering barbeque aroma.
An alternative to this is the Burgs Fried Chicken Burger (S$5.50 for single, S$7.50 for double) which is a Sriracha-glazed fried chicken thigh and shredded iceberg lettuce.
Nacho cheese and fish & chips lovers can have a go at the Nacho Fish & Chips Burger (S$6 for single, S$8 for double) which features a large piece of crispy-fried Alaskan pollock fillet, shredded lettuce for crunchiness, and spiced nacho cheese sauce.
You can upgrade the fries that come on the side to Truffle Fries (upgrade for S$3, a la carte at S$5) which are garnished with shaved parmesan cheese, or their Burgs Cheese Fries (upgrade for S$2, a la carte at S$4) which are doused in nacho cheese sauce.
Sweeter fries includes the Cuban Fries (upgrade for S$2.50, a la carte at S$4.5) which are heaped with pulled beef brisket and spiced nacho cheese, as well as Okonomi Fries (upgrade for S$2, a la carte at S$4) which comes dressed with okonomiyaki sauce, Japanese mayonnaise and bonito flakes.
Aside from the fries upgrade, you can even add on two pieces of Burgs Signature Chicken Wings to your set for another S$1.60 if you want to skip getting them a la carte at S$4.90 for six winglets and drumlets. They come in 2 flavours: Hot & Spicy and Honey Butter Sauce.
Despite being a burger joint, Burgs takes their chicken pretty seriously too. The fried-to-order wings are garnished with sesame seeds and chopped spring onions for added savoury flavour.
