I previously shared about our visit to a worthy competitor for the best value steaks in Singapore, Grill Lab. The ribeye steak they delivered easily fell within the Superb Value section and left me one satisfied carnivore. Today, we look at a neighbouring meat venue that specialises in sandwiches and burgers – Burger Buddies.
Now, let’s get to the meat.
After scanning the choices listed on the menu, Roli went for the Grilled Beef Sandwich ($15.90) that featured 150 – 180 grams of grilled black Angus sirloin, arugula and blue cheese sauce, sandwiched between toasted ciabatta bread. The actual thing was as appetising as we imagined, with fries drowning in mushroom sauce and a steak sandwich just screaming with juicy goodness.
Taste-wise, the blue cheese sauce unsurprisingly overpowered everything else in the sandwich. The pungent flavour cut through the bun, the arugula and most notably, the sirloin steak. Being a prime cut, the sirloin lacks prominent beefy flavours and when paired with the bold-tasting sauce, it barely stood a chance.
As for the fries doused in what I describe as concentrated cream of mushroom, they taste exactly like decent fries that’s been drenched with cream of mushroom. It was alright, just not a symphony of flavours.
Other than that, the sandwich’s ingredients were pretty decent in terms of freshness and quality. I guess this goes to show that having great ingredients is important but knowing how to bring out their flavours is where differentiation happens. 7/10.
The atmosphere of the food court was on the bustling side, with families enjoying their personal favourites and friends catching up on the day’s events. As for Burger Buddies, the service was prompt and contained enough friendliness for a potential return visit.
Should You Try It?
Just ask for the blue cheese sauce on the side. They have other options too…appreciate it if you could share your ‘findings’ with me.
