Japan's R Burger in Singapore
This wasn't meant to be an ION Orchard streak. But we were in the area again, and went downstairs to see if there were somewhere we could get a quick bite at. Just a couple stalls down from Menya Kaiko was this outlet of a Japanese burger chain (#B4-56). Beef patties shoved into Chinese mantou-like steamed buns didn't look very enticing, but we figured that we'd give it a shot.
We grabbed the eponymous R Burger, which came dressed with shiso leaf and pickled daikon. As much as I love both of those items in Japanese food, I just couldn't get into this. The bun kept annoyingly sticking to the roof of my mouth, and there was just no "oomph" that made me want to eat it again. The avocado cheese burger didn't really get me excited either.
Oh well. As much as I love how wonderful Japanese localization can be, somehow I just can't get into Japanese hamburgers...at least, based upon this and Mos Burger. There are a few Japanese chains that I do want to try next time I'm up there, but in the meantime I'll stick to burgers from back home.
