HOT TABLES | Big Bad Wolf: Burgers and bar bites in Katong
This East Coast newbie has built a strong following since opening less than six months back. Charred on the outside to lock in flavour, the burgers’ juicy patties ooze with all the goodness typically found in a deliciously rare steak: only giving the burger one flip and avoiding any pressing are two of the local chef’s tricks of the trade. Home-made brioche buns sandwich the patties with a layer of caramelised onions, sun-dried tomato relish and an aioli dressing. Served alongside a light salad and fries, the modest $12 price tag adds to the pleasant taste in your mouth. Those looking to skip the main and tap into the wide range of beers can sample the American bar bites – such established favourites as spicy wings, fried calamari and potato wedges have made it onto the menu.
