Burgers might be slightly off-trend of late, but at this joint, Wildfire Burgers at Somerset 313 offers a versatile stack of quality burger and bun.
Just look at the Fullblood Wagyu Burger ($26), the premium-grade steak into a burger was looking moist juicy. They did a clever way of placing the lettuce as base, preventing the patty’s juice from soaking the bun. What a clever move.
Away from the towering indulgence, the texture of the bread was pretty dry, there was a lacking oomph from the sauce when you really ate it.
Others burgers on the menu include Classic 001 ($16), Umami ($18), Triple Bacon ($19), Black Ebi ($19) and Con Carne ($21).
My lunch companion enjoyed Portobello & Friends ($16) that is 100% vegetarian, perched with a meaty grilled portobello. The flavors perked him up.
In fact, Wildfire Burgers serves up a crazy selection of very well-fried boneless chicken ($13) inspired by cuisines around Asia. There’s Thai-inspired Nam Prik Pao Fried Chicken, the Sichuan Pepper and Salt Fried Chicken and Southern Fried Chicken (shown above) there’s simply served with sliced Gherkins and glazed with maple syrup. The serving per dish was so huge.
Interestingly, Wildfire Burgers offers a good selection of punchy and sweet Japanese and American ales ($11-16) to wash down each bite.
It isn’t the best idea place to be pigging out on burgers, however it’s still worth your time for a burger escapade at Somerset 313!
