I rarely patronize Western food stalls in coffee shops or food courts. However, having heard favorable reviews about Astons, a chain establishment known for serving quality food at affordable prices, I decided to give its sister chain Astons Express a try one evening.
ieat Super Burger
Priced at $12.50 for a portion large enough to feed two small eaters, the ieat Super Burger featured a grilled patty, freshly hand-chopped from 200gm of sirloin steak, sandiwiched between two sesame seed buns along with two slices of melted cheese, bacon rashers, barbeque sauce and a drizzle of mayonnaise for a creamy touch. Not to forget, the mandatory tomato and romaine lettuce slices that helped to cut the grease.
Sizewise aside, I was unfortunately not bowled over by the ieat Super Burger as the beef patty could have done with more flavor. However, I loved the unconventional addition of battered onion crisps which provided a slight sweetness and much crunch to the burger!
Every order of the ieat Super Burger includes a complimentary side, with choices ranging from fries to baked potatoes. My friend and I did not regret opting for the onion rings, which were satisfyingly crunchy and not too greasy. But my vote will still go to those addictive onion crisps... if only they could be placed on the a la carte menu!
