We scour the island’s restaurant scene to bring you the new and the noteworthy – it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it! Here, ANTHIA CHNG checks out Wolf Burger’s three non-beef, affordable burgers at their first flagship store in Changi City Point. (Psst… We first reviewed these burgers at the eatery’s previous Ann Siang Hill pop-up last December!)
Expanding from a stall in Suntec City’s PasarBella to a standalone diner in Changi City Point, local burger spot Wolf Burger has come a long way, considering Singapore’s saturated F&B market. While you get a few more food options here as compared to the Suntec City branch, the menu is kept tight with minimal changes. The décor is sleek and minimal – think red and black accents – with a semi-open kitchen where your orders are prepared à la minute.
Grub on these:
Apart from the regular offerings like the buttermilk fried chicken ($9.90) and the Mighty Alpha ($14.90), fans can also indulge in three new and exclusive burgers. We started with the grilled lemongrass chicken burger ($10.90), which was extremely flavourful with the slightest fragrance of lemongrass. Perfectly grilled to tenderness, the chicken went well with the added sriracha mayo for a hum of heat. We also tried the miso tofu veggie burger ($9.90), a surprisingly delicious meat-less option. Made with grilled tofu, a special miso marinate, a generous portion of avo slices and crunchy slaw, it was hearty, savoury and sweet in one bite.
The true winner, however, was the Good Catch ($10.90), a simple yet satisfying number with just two main ingredients: a tempura-battered fish fillet and wasabi mayo. I’m not the biggest wasabi fan, and while the spicy kick was definitely discernible, it wasn’t overpowering at all. We also loved how the fillet was crisp on the outside, while soft and flaky inside.
You’ll be missing out if you leave without trying the signature milkshakes ($6). Available in three flavours – strawberry rose, Horlicks vanilla, chocolate malt – these shakes are creamy, rich and not a bit icy. My favourite? Hands-down the Horlicks vanilla, which comes with a crunchy cereal topping. Those with a sweet tooth will also love the waffles ($8.90), which are served from 2.30pm onwards. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for the charcoal salted egg with taro ice cream, a savoury meets sweet combination.
Last but not least:
Need a midday pick-me-up? Grab a cuppa joe, freshly prepared by the baristas from meat joint Carvers & Co. A single shot of espresso ($3) might do the trick for some, or you can go for your regular flat white ($5).
