When it comes to finger-licking, juicy, badass burgers Potato Head knows a thing about it (or two). Dubbed as a fun, colorful quick service restaurant, Potato Head in Singapore is just about the first thing you need to eat once you’ve satisfied all of your Asian cravings.
As I was walking around Outram right after work, I stumbled upon this cute venue on a relatively balmy evening. Most of the bars around the areas were prepping up for the night and the distant smell of something grilling immediately caught my attention. No wonder, I ended up closing Google Maps and putting my phone away for this unique carnivores experience!
Potato Head is the hospitality group behind a couple of interesting projects around Southeast Asia, such as their Beach Club in Bali and their restaurant in Jakarta. It first got established in Singapore back in 2014, housed in one of the most iconic buildings of Chinatown on Keong Saik Road with its 60s appeal. Spread across multiple levels of the same building is the takeaway counter, the kitchen, the restaurant a rooftop terrace that gets lively after 5pm or so.
What’s on the menu? Burgers of course!
Although the menu (and other reviews online) feature many different offerings, we definitely recommend sticking to what Potato Head is known for: Baby Huey. Their black angus beef patty burger with cheese, ketchup, pickles and spicy mayo. If you’re really asking for it, go big with Burning Man, smoked Applewood cheddar, roasted jalapeno relish and dashi mayo, or Truff Ryder, Wagyu beef patty, pan-seared foie gras, onion confit and four artisan cheeses.
Their infamous dirty fries did not really excite us that much and their signature cocktail Zombie was also a bit of a let down. But what else do you need when you’re devouring the best burger in Southeast Asia?!
