BURGER URGE (West End)


Dinner at BURGER URGE
Shop 3/156 Boundary Street
West End


Every Tuesday, there's 2-4-1 Special
With purchase of a drink/chips
you get 2 burgers for the price of one
(of course you pay for the more expensive one)


LAMB HALOUMI
$13.90
Fresh lamb, grilled haloumi, caramelised onion, pesto, salad and relish
Haloumi is a traditional cypriot cheese made from goat/sheep milk
Its amazingly tasty for a burger, I would say better than
some of the burgers at Grill'd


Chicken Chermoula
$12.90
Marinated chicken breast, coriander & yogurt chutney and salad
Taste like a big round chicken kebab!


Kumara Chips
$6.90
Hand-cut sweet potato chips with spicy urge seasoning served with lime mayo
Kumara is not a type of sweet potato, its just a different way of calling it
in Polynesia, New Zealand.. Pretty tasty!
Quite different from the conventional potato chips with burgers

KFC (Australia)


Today, Libby and I are going to eat Aussie KFC
Om nom nom!
And we'll tell you whats different with Singapore's..


YEAH... so hot right now!


We ordered Spicy, but it sure taste like Original
However the chicken is more tender


Coleslaw taste fresher
Its foil sealed


Whipped/Mash Potato has a better texter
and the gravy is thicker and more robust

NOODLE BOX (Surfers Paradise)


NOODLE BOX
1 Elkhorn Ave
Surfers Paradise


Lets look at the menu, there's some interesting items
1. Pad Thai Chicken Box - Looks like what Sheldon (Big Bang Theory would eat)
2. Mee Gee Seafood Box - Maggie Goreng (Indian Muslim)
3. Nasi Box - Nasi Goreng with Roast Pork!
4. Gung Ho Soy Box - How "Gung Ho"?
5. Sing-A Box - I don't see how Singapore this dish is..
6. Luck-Sa Soup Box - Interesting! Laksa

They have very attractive names that
I feel would appeal to Aussies - Well Done!








I ordered COMBO BOX
$9.95 (small) $13.95 (regular)
Thin egg noodles (港面), roast pork, lean beef, chicken, prawn, shrimp and Asian vegetables wok tossed in oyster sauce.
Its pretty tasty but the gravy taste too "jelat" and unhealthy for me.
I ordered a regular, seems a bit too much for skinny me.
But still, it was pretty good!

Return Factor:
7.5/10

Oven baked bread containing home-made chutney and cheese
I think its delicious!


Chapati


Jasmine Rice


Sherpa Chicken
$15.60
Boneless lean chicken cooked in a creamy curry sauce with spring onions, tomatos and mushrooms.
The chicken is very tender, I quite enjoyed this dish

Bread baked with garlic butter


Dhal Soup (G.F. Vegan)
$7.30
Lentils soaked overnight, cooked with tumeric, tomatos, ginger, garlic and onions.

A Very Happy Libby


Chinese Tea


Deep-fried Prawn Dumpling
Absolutely delicious!


Char Siew Bao
(aka BBQ Pork Bun)
This is pretty good, however I think the one at Manor
has a sweeter bun
This one is pretty good too!


Steamed Siew Mai
(aka Dim Dim)
Very tasty. Very similiar to the one from Golden Palace.


Har Gao
(aka Steamed Prawn Dumpling)
Golden Palace has better ones


Egg Custard Tarts
Manor still has the best
This one is a bit bland


Chup Chiong
(Steamed Rice Rolls with Fried Fitters)
Taste pretty good
but 4 rolls is a bit too much for me to finish

[GENERAL RATINGS]
Food Quality: 9/10
Food Presentation: 7.5/10
Value-for-Money: 10/10
(Its almost half the price of Golden Palace!)
Ambience: 9/10
Service: 10/10
(Very friendly and jovial staff unlike Communist-face Golden Palace wait staff who speaks half-fuck English and gets annoyed with you for not understanding; However Manor offers a more personalised service, I'm still very happy with Kings)
