The great ol’ burger’s well being advantages have resulted in it showing extra typically within the hawker scene, with The Burger Coy being one in every of its newest additions.

In case the sarcasm flew manner over your head or if SETHLUI.com has any future Well being Promotion Board sponsors, the primary paragraph is a joke. Burgers and fries are scrumptious and must be eaten sparsely, similar to all the things else.

Significantly, these orbit (or old style) signal board designs have gotten to go!

The Burger Coy - Making the burgerEarlier than I may even take a correct have a look at the menu, I used to be already impressed by seeing patties being ‘pattied’ earlier than my eyes. They have been sprinkled with salt and pepper, formed and measured, earlier than being positioned on a tray of patties. The hen breast was additionally seasoned on the spot with peri-peri seasonings.

Your transfer, quick meals eating places.

What I attempted at The Burger Coy

The Burger Coy - The Cheeseburger AND The Peri-Peri Chicken Burger

Understandably, there weren’t many selections, which made selecting your meals simpler. Having had numerous cheeseburgers, I needed to strive The Cheeseburger (S$6.80 for single patty, S$9.30 for double).

I by no means preferred hen burgers (sure, even the McSpicy) however The Peri-Peri Hen Burger (S$7.80 for single patty, S$10.30 for double) was calling out to me with its non-battered hen breast. 

Every meal got here with a facet of French Fries that may be upgraded to Cheese Fries (S$2.50) or Truffle Fries (S$3.50) and I had the latter.

Different burger selections embody The Truffle Mushroom Beef Burger (S$8.80 for single patty, S$11.30 for double) and The Black Pepper Beef Burger (S$8.80 for single patty, S$11.30 for double)

The Burger Coy - The Cheeseburger

I do know I stated I had numerous cheeseburgers, however this was in contrast to something I had earlier than. As an alternative of the same old ketchup and mustard sauce, it had home made Sriracha sauce. The pickles have been changed with fried garlic flakes and there was lettuce on the bottom. 

The Burger Coy - The Cheeseburger

Do you bear in mind the primary time you had sweet floss? How bewildered you have been because the flossy sweet actually dissolved in your mouth? That was precisely how I felt after my first chew, minus the drooling saliva.

I’m actually undecided which melted first— the brioche bun or the patty— as my first chew lasted 5 seconds lengthy. This was a very, actually good burger. 

Each ingredient, from the brioche bun to even the recent and crunchy lettuce, was working in tandem with each other. Even the crunchy garlic bits, offered some earthy notes with their slight bitterness.

I did benefit from the home made Sriracha sauce, because it added a slight spice component that labored nicely with the creaminess of the cheese. I’d be mendacity if I wasn’t fantasising about how good it might style with some good ol’ ketchup and mustard, however hey, we’re all about making an attempt one thing new right here in SETHLUI.com.

The Burger Coy - The CheeseburgerI’m conscious that to many, the patty could look small and to be truthful it does seem so, however belief me, the flavours greater than make up for it.

It was nearly unnaturally juicy, particularly given how skinny the patty was and to not point out, it was constructed from precise minced meat.

The Burger Coy - Normal French Fries

The French Fries have been most actually frozen, however they have been cooked to order and have been actually heat and crispy. It was seasoned with seaweed and salt, however it tasted fairly regular and was missing in one other pinch of salt.

The Burger Coy - The Peri-Peri Chicken

Up subsequent, The Peri-Peri Hen Burger. There was nothing you wouldn’t count on out of a hen burger: chicken breast marinated in peri-peri seasoning, lettuce, cheddar cheese and peri-peri mayonnaise sauce.

I’ve to level out once more how impressed I’m with them utilizing non-battered hen breast. Not solely are you able to respect the style of the hen, it’s also more healthy (however nonetheless to be eaten sparsely please).

The Burger Coy - The Peri-Peri Chicken

It didn’t have the juicy chew that I used to be anticipating and the flavours have been fairly delicate in comparison with the salt and pepper seasoned patties that I had. The sauce was a lot better than the primary, although it tasted a tad too related. It had an additional kick of spice that I may respect, however that was about it.

I’d nonetheless have this over any hen burger, however the limitations of cooking hen breast on a grill have been magnified by its dryness.

The Burger Coy - Truffle Fries

The Truffle Fries have been additionally a slight letdown because the parmesan cheese and truffle flavour weren’t actually distinguished. I may solely get a touch of truffle flavour regardless of what number of fries I devoured.

In hindsight, I might have gone with the Cheese Fries. Regardless of it being your typical store-bought cheese and mayonnaise mixture, not less than I do know that it’ll coat my fries in flavour. (It’s cheaper too!)

Last ideas 

The Burger Coy - Takeaway

I’ve to confess, there was a way of betrayal that overcame me as I used to be chewing the leftovers on my mattress. All these gourmand burgers that I had previously by no means got here near tasting pretty much as good as what I had at The Burger Coy.

They even had the cheek to cost double and generally even triple of what I paid for my meal earlier on. By no means once more.

Earlier than this begins to sound like a corny villain origin story, I can not advocate The Burger Coy sufficient. This can be a no-frills scrumptious meals expertise and the worth pretty displays that.

If the prospect of getting skinny patties nonetheless bothers you, simply add one other! If my opinion on The Peri-Peri Hen Burger turned you off, know that it’s miles above no matter quick meals alternate options that you could get. 

One factor’s for certain, I’ll by no means have a look at a Quarter Pounder the identical manner ever once more.
