Had a late afternoon meeting nearby and so we decided to explore this area!
Hubby read that the burgers here at Market Grill were excellent; so this was our first choice, with a backup plan to go to the Muffinry in case it was crowded here. Well, you always gotta have a backup plan when reservations are not allowed 🙂
Happy to say that on a Wednesday evening around 7pm, it was only half-full, with the tables mostly filled up, but the bar counter seats completely available. We were allotted a table beside the wall but the seats were very close to the next table. I guess the rent in the city centre is definitely not cheap so they need to squeeze every inch into sell-able space.
With no time to waste, we ordered The Wagyu Teaser, The Lobster Roll and The CW Bleu Cheese Burger.
The Wagyu Teaser ($19) was Wagyu rump that was slow roasted for four hours, then thinly sliced and placed on top of a bed of rockets, pickled onions, vine tomatoes, with balsamic dressing. The beef was super tender and moist! The vegetables were very fresh and crunchy. We enjoyed this salad very much!
The Lobster Roll ($45) consisted of chunks of lobster meat on toasted brioche roll. It was OMG kind of nice! Just imagine your teeth sinking into the really soft and buttery brioche roll after biting through the crispy exterior… And then meeting the oh-so-fresh lobster meat… Absolutely delightful!
Hubby had Chef Colin West’s original-recipe signature burger, the CW Bleu Cheese Burger ($24 for 150g) that was way too overpowering for me. Hubby loved the crispy walnut-raisin bun and bacon, juicy thick beef patty with melted strong Bleu cheese and the sweet caramelized onion though!
Both mains came with a side serving of salad and fries. The fries looked uniformly thick (I was impressed!) but I thought they were quite soft.
We had a great time here and would love to return 🙂
