Dinner at BURGER URGE
Shop 3/156 Boundary Street
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)
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
Marinated chicken breast, coriander & yogurt chutney and salad
Taste like a big round chicken kebab!
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
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

1 Elkhorn Ave
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
1/59 Hardgrave Road
Oven baked bread containing home-made chutney and cheese
I think its delicious!
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
but Libby says its too bland and not spicy enough.
Bread baked with garlic butter
Dhal Soup (G.F. Vegan)
Lentils soaked overnight, cooked with tumeric, tomatos, ginger, garlic and onions.
The poor wait staff got this order wrong and kena raged by Sato.
Food Quality: 8/10

King of Kings
175 Wickham Street
Good morning all, we're here to eat DIM SUM
Lets see what she have in her
traditional dim sum push cart
Some of the items can be found on the separate menu
Menu produced upon request
A Very Happy Libby
Deep-fried Prawn Dumpling
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.
(aka Steamed Prawn Dumpling)
Golden Palace has better ones
Egg Custard Tarts
Manor still has the best
This one is a bit bland
(Steamed Rice Rolls with Fried Fitters)
Taste pretty good
but 4 rolls is a bit too much for me to finish
Food Quality: 9/10
Food Presentation: 7.5/10
(Its almost half the price of Golden Palace!)
(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)
