The Handburger

Fine day, people!
This is what I promise in my previous post, my day 3 dinner..

Day 3 Dinner : The Handburger (Somerset 313)
Yes, you see it right there
The Handburger
Nope, I don't see it wrong
Handburger stick together, not separated like Hand Burger
(crap =.=")

What makes it different?
No restaurants or cafes are going to tell you that "We served going-to expired ingredients in the town"

So, this is the story of THB!
"The Handburger serves gourmet crafted from the freshest and finest ingredients such as ribeye patties, duck confit and oven baked portobello with a range of handmade sauce"

On the left (above and below), my brother's THB set:

The Handburger Original
Chilled Stuffed Tomato 
(Top Up for $4)
Iced Lemon Tea (not shown)
Mine was on the right :

Chicken Caesar Burger
Onion Rings
(Top Up for $4)
Hot green tea

Before this thing goes on, here's something to declare that THB is a non-Halal restaurant
Secondly, vegetarians are all welcome

The Handburger has burgers listed in 3 categories : Meat, Poultry, Seafood / Vegetarian

* The Handburger Original*
*The Works Burger*
*Pulled Pork Burger*

*Duck Confit Burger*
*Chicken Caesar Burger*
*Tandoor Chicken Burger*

Seafood / Vegetarian
*Battered Dory Burger*
*Stuffed Portobello Burger*

I am going to focus on the one I bold it in RED only

The Handburger Original
"Grilled 150g of 100% N.Z ribeye beef patty, sweet onion jam, cheddar cheese, handmade barbecue sauce on a bed of coral lettuce, tomato on a toasted caramelised onion bun"

Brother's food so it is going to be brother's review
Nothing much to elaborate on the taste because it was just awesome among the awesome-ness
One thing to point out here is about whether you like it cooked well done, medium rare or rare
The reflection here is that the well done beef patty was not exactly well done
It is either it was supposed to turn out this way or it really turn out a mistake
But still, nothing beat the taste

Chilled Stuffed Tomato
One unique side dish that we hardly imagine even there is a picture until it was served
One big juicy tomato, that's the first impression
The extra is all stuffed inside the tomato, it was just cabbage anyway
Yeah, just cabbage
Taste buds not really triggered, it is just like any other tomato and cabbage

My review

Chicken Caesar Burger
"Baked chicken breast wrapped with bacon, fresh mozzarella, sautéed basil pesto mushroom, handmade caesar dressing on a bed of romaine lettuce, tomato on a toasted sundried tomato with olive bun"

Question, question..
The time I was reading the menu, it was written baked chicken thigh. When does it turns into a breast?
I seriously remember it is thigh!

First impression, "Oh My Gawd" priceless expression
Tall! Big! How to eat!
Sorry to say that my process of eating plus cutting and fork-ing was a total m.e.s.s
The tower of burger fell apart
I built it back in place and it fell again
But, who cares as long as the food brings you to heaven
A very messy way to heaven
Double thumb ups to the Caesar dressing!
Overall, it was something worth trying and I am going to crave for it someday

Onion Rings
It was served with handmade tomato sauce that taste so different that I couldn't recognize them
The good thing about this is it is not oily that cut away my guilty pleasure of the day
This is the one that I am going to order again if I were to come again

In conclusion : Really going to eat there next time! (TCA!)

*TCA : to see again*
