I went to so many places both old and new and I keep myself excuses perhaps tomorrow but those days are far and few. Lunch at Little Hiro was back in early July after the photoshoot at Botanic Garden. That was very long ago. They are a re-brand burger concept but I kept thinking about their nacho fries. Sinfully good with an additional spicy kick to it. I am just biased to anything with hot gooey cheese on it.
Their burgers don’t really entice me. They seemed lacking or plain boring in my opinion. Skip the Ramen Burgers entirely. There aren’t a lot of places in Singapore you can find the American-Japanese hybrid but Hiro’s version was bad. The pan fried noodles were eggy and I didn’t like that alkaline taste. They seemed to be straight out from some random supplier. A huge disappointment on our first bite considering it’s their signature favourite.The other mains fared a little better. I didn’t see anyone ordering their burgers while I was there. I’m guessing the locals in the vicinity know what’s good and bad. They are not the cheapest place I know but I think the place is what your typical ACS or Hwa Chong kid can afford for an after school date.If truffle fries can go up to 10 bucks then paying $7.50 for the Nacho Fries Supreme was not very expensive to share over lunch. If I have time, I don’t mind having dropping by here on a Friday night over drinks and finger food. But I rather have dinner somewhere else first before coming.
And of course, no visit to Bukit Timah will ever feel complete unless I pop by Island Creamery. It’s a personal ritual that I never get sick off. Ok, I am just being excessive but my heart will seriously bleed for you if you had never tried their ice creams before.Little Hiro
