Burgers and Shakers
Time Out says
In a time when free-flowing lines of food are still prohibited, buffet restaurant Clove has pivoted and transformed into a brand new concept. Now, at its sun-drenched location on the second floor of Swissotel The Stamford lies Burgers and Shakers.
This new all-day burger joint joins a scene that is already filled with big-name chains and gourmet eateries. But it’s hoping to win over the hungry crowd with a considered menu of, well, burgers and milkshakes – made less sinful with plant-based proteins and sustainably sourced ingredients.
Beef patties, the main highlight, come sourced from Stanbroke, a family-owned farm in Queensland, Australia where the cattle is reared in a “pristine environment”. The result: clean, bold flavours that is best sampled in the signature Double Up ($26). It comes with two thick patties – one cooked over the grill to impart a kiss of smoke, and another deep-fried in beer batter for a crunchy bite. It then gets topped with bacon jam, parmesan aioli, and cheddar cheese, then sandwiched between your choice of buns. Choose from the usual sweet brioche or healthy lettuce bun, opt for the kale sourdough as a way to sneak in some greens.
There’s also the guilt-free vegan Moo-CHAS Grass-IAS ($18), made with Impossible patty and homemade chilli, and the Princess Tilapia Van Aquaponics ($22) where the fish croquette comes sustainably sourced from the hotel’s aquaponics farm. Hearty salads, constructed using local greens, are available as well to help make a square meal at Burgers and Shakers.
Then, wash everything down with an over-the-top drink option. Choose from a thick shake, concrete, or floats – all of which make for a great dessert in a cup. Try the overflowing Avochendol ($14), a locally inspired concrete served with creamy avocado, gula Melaka, azuki beans, and coconut – and even comes crowned with a slice of pandan cake and biscuits. Also notable is a selection of milkshake, spiked with alcohol ($21) for the grown-ups to imbibe. And don’t sleep on the kale almond milkshake ($10) – this vegetable-friendly concoction comes blended with healthy ingredients of soy milk, preserved orange, fermented miso, toasted almonds, and dehydrated kale that makes for a guiltless sweet treat to round off the meal.
