Have you ever craved for a juicy burger, got excited to order one from your local burger joint, only to get disappointed because the taste is just not what you have imagined? You might think that the perfect burger does not exist because of the ones you have tasted before.
Luckily for you, though, there are a few things you can do when ordering. Below, we will discuss what you should remember when ordering a burger at a burger joint in Singapore.
Stack it Up
Burgers are a whole lot better if it is stacked with toppings upon toppings of different ingredients. Some of the staples include mustard or ketchup, the patty, sour pickles, a fresh slice of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and mayonnaise.
Now, you might be allergic to some of these ingredients, or you simply do not like the taste. In this case, it is totally your choice to omit the ingredients you do not like and ask the staff to just add more of what you like. However, if you are not picky and not allergic to any of the ingredients, then stack all of them into your burger to get the best taste possible!
Ask About the Patty
Not everyone will ask about the patty that the restaurant or joint uses, but knowing which kind they use is actually important. The patty is the star of the show, and it can make or break the taste of the burger. Ask the restaurant if they use fresh beef patty and not the ones similar to the frozen goods you buy in supermarkets. It would be best if you can order a ground beef patty that has 22% fat or less, as this is not only healthier but better-tasting, too!
Stack it Right
Yes, there is a proper way to stack your ingredients to make them taste a lot better. For beef burgers, make sure to put the bun first, the condiments below it, then the pickles, jalapeno, mushrooms, onions, bacon, egg, chilli, cheese, patty, and the other bun. For turkey burger, the best toppings that would go with it are arugula, pico, avocado, bacon, fried egg, spinach, and cheese. For lamb, consider avocado, bacon, arugula, pickled onions, spinach, and cheese. Again, you can choose to omit some of the ingredients and add the ones that you prefer instead.
Ask About the Bun
You normally would not pay too much attention to the bun, but it actually has quite the impact on your burger. You can see the freshness of the bun by smelling and of course, tasting it. If the bun seems to smell stale, then it might have been in the pantry for a couple of days. Also, if it seems to be crumbling all over the place, then you might want to ask the staff to replace it with fresher ones.
What goes into your burger is definitely your own business. Let these tips make your burger experience a whole lot better. Do not hesitate to ask once you order some from your favourite burger joint.
